Oscar Snubs Leave Globes With Also-Ran Nominees [VIDEO]
Hollywood’s junior prom for film honors features quite a different cast than the senior prom at next month’s Academy Awards.
Sunday night’s Golden Globes are in a rare place this season, coming after the Oscar nominations, which were announced earlier than usual and threw out some shockers that Glhave left the Globe show a little less relevant.
Key Globe contenders lined up largely as expected, with Steven Spielberg’s Civil War saga “Lincoln” leading with seven nominations and two CIA thrillers — Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” and Ben Affleck’s “Argo” — also doing well.
Yet while “Lincoln,” ”Argo” and “Zero Dark Thirty” grabbed best-picture slots for the Oscars, Bigelow and Affleck were snubbed for directing honors after a season that had seen them in the running for almost every major award.
Jodie Foster will receive the Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the 70th Globes ceremony, airing live from 8-11 p.m. EST on NBC.
There will be a friendly rivalry between the hosts of the Globe ceremony, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The co-stars of the 2008 big-screen comedy “Baby Mama” both are nominated for best actress in a TV comedy or musical series, Fey for “30 Rock” and Poehler for “Parks and Recreation.”
The Globes present 14 film awards and 11 television prizes.
