Golden Globes Analysis: Fabelmans, Austin Butler and Banshees Win, Avatar Loses and More

The Golden Globes Awards – organized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, whose broadcast agreement with NBC was terminated after the last awards Tuesday night – are now homeless. Did their 17 ritual get them to find a new TV House, or their 24st, like this year’s SAG Awards , no televised?

Watching the show on TV like other Hollywood awards reporters — HFPA decided to exclude them from their event because They didn’t like that we blamed their recent controversies and coverage on our membership in the Critics’ Choice Society, which gives out the Critics’ Choice Awards — and I thought the show was a hit.

Owner? Jerrod Carmichael was reportedly not the HFPA’s or NBC’s first choice, nor has he proven fit for the job. (This is my opinion; you can read our TV critic’s review of the show here.) A half-condemned HFPA, then never really regained control, throwing some tasteless jokes (“Killing hotel Whitney Houston”?) very good.

winner? A highly diverse group, many are clearly popular choices in the room (especially the White Lotus ‘Jennifer Coolidge,Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Angela Bassett of and Abbott Elementary School

and its creative star Quinta Brunson ), while the vast majority Man accepted their award, just to the HFPA, it must be a relief (although Banshee of Inisherin

Martin McDonagh trying to be sarcastic.

What about the ratings? We’ll see soon See, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up. Ratings for all award shows – and pretty much every show on TV except football – have been down in recent years. Tuesday night time slots aren’t set up for success Get ready.

However, regardless of what happens in the future for the Globes, this year’s awards show will likely be on the Oscars, given that Oscar nomination votes will be in less than 31 starts in hours, 1 month. , and will run through January . Although there is very little overlap between those who voted for the Golden Globes and those who voted for the Oscars (except for 80-year-old actress/journalist Lisa Lu ), many Academy members did watch the Globes telecast (I kept in touch with several throughout the show and after the show), and many more would read it – Academy does tend to imitate unimaginatively Many choices from previous awards groups.

With that in mind, I thought I’d highlight five of the most noteworthy to me movie-related results from the Golden Globes that could have Also important to academy members:

1) Fabelmans


Steven Spielberg’s autobiographical film isn’t as cutting-edge as Tár(​​ or as commercially successful Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water or

Elvis Presley . But it’s a master origin story, it’s moving, and it’s probably the least divisive of them all, which might explain how it beat them all for best drama (a year after Spielberg’s

West Side Story won best comedy) and how Spielberg won best director ( This is where he won Saving Private Ryan

17 years ago, the same year he last won an Oscar for Best Director). It’s a good reminder not to take Spielberg for granted.

In addition: Must admit Avatar: Way of Water

This Bad week. It was just shut out at the Golden Globes after failing to make the BAFTA Best Picture shortlist – years ago, with its best drama to the original Avatar Tribute to the Picture Award and its director, James Cameron , Best Director Award.

2) Elvis‘ Austin Butler screwed up

this 48 Year-old breakout finds herself in the spotlight as Best Drama Actor upsets Brendan Fraser , he is his whale

. Admittedly, Frazier may not have been loved by the HFPA by publicly bashing them and boycotting their show in response to what he says he was sexually assaulted at the hands of their ex-President Philip Burke, many years ago, so maybe other voting bodies would have treated him better. But there could be more to this. Unlike Fraser, Butler’s film was a huge commercial success and received better reviews, and Hollywood loves “A Star Is Born” story as much as it loves “The Comeback Kid,” if not more. If you like it.

As far as Globes’ recent history of performances in music-filled biopics are concerned, it’s interesting that they caused a false alarm when they honored Rocketman

‘s Taron Egerton Oscar nominated) three years ago – But did help kick off the successful Oscars podium parade, and a year before that, they honored Rami from Bohemian Rhapsody Malek (like Butler, but unlike Egerton, he chose to compete in the drama category rather than the music/comedy category for the music-filled biopic).

3) Banshees Leader

This dark and quirky comedy won Best Actor ( Colin Farrell ) and Best Screenplay at the Venice Film Festival in September Award (McDonagh), and then recognized with the same two honors Tuesday night (specifically, Farrell Best Musical/Comedian Actor), and Best Musical/Comedy Picture. There’s an argument that its humor is more suited to non-Americans — who make up the vast majority of the Globe’s electorate — than to Americans. But even so, leading with three wins is pretty impressive.

First prize of the night for Best Supporting Actor , to Ke Huy Quan , and less than an hour later, Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy went to Michelle Yeoh , meaning the two members of the troubled couple at the center of A 17 The biggest hit of all time dies with the Globes. The duo also gave a heartfelt speech about their long roller coaster career, which no doubt left any Academy member who saw them hooked. Kwon has been the obvious favorite in his Oscar race for a while now, but Yeoh is considered to be neck and neck with Tár of Cate Blanchett . Blanchett won Universal’s best actress in a drama on Tuesday, but he was not present at the ceremony. Advantage: yo.

5) Disturbance from abroad

On a night of few real surprises in film terms, two The biggest upset came from non-English films.

In the Best Non-English Film category, Argentina’s Argentina, 95

— Legal Thriller Based on Historical Events from Amazon — Shocked Germany

All Quiet on the Western Front (Best International featuring Oscar frontrunner and Best Picture contender from Netflix), Indian RRR

(a controversial not

Submit Best International Special Exhibition ture Oscar ) and Belgian closed and Korean

Decision to Leave (both Cannes judges’ darling). While this outcome is unlikely to be repeated on Oscar night, it certainly could help bring Argentina,81

tops the list for Oscar nominations . (Currently believed to be on Bubbles, behind All Quiet



, decided to leave

and maybe Polish EO and Irish The Quiet Girl


Also, in the Best Original Song category , “Naatu Naatu,” the catchy Telugu melody in the middle of the song and dance in the Indian blockbuster RRR did have moviegoers dancing in the aisles of movie theaters around the world, beating English entries from A-listers Rihanna,

Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga . The HFPA couldn’t resist the kind of star power that pop stars have had in years past. However, this year’s Golden Globe winners were made up of roughly equal numbers of HFPA members and non-members

voters, a newcomer attempting to add diversity to the electorate, made up mostly of journalists outside the US, I doubt they helped tip the balance of the race.
