    18th Annual Satellite Awards 

    18th-Annual-Satellite-Awards-Full-Nominations-List

    The International Press Academy (IPA) announced the 18th annual Satellite Awards on February 23rd, 2014 in Los Angeles with giving away the Best Film award to 12 YEARS A SLAVE, directed and co-produced by Steve McQueen who also won the Best Director award which is the most surprising thing about the ceremony as Alfonso Cuaron has been winning this honor for his brilliant work in GRAVITY. But still, it’s highly likely that Cuaron will be the winner at the Oscars, I want him to be. He deserves to be.

    25th Annual Producers Guild Awards 

    logo

    The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced their winners on January 19th, 2014 with the best thing, i.e. Gravity and 12 years a Slave both winning the top prize. It’s really amazing to see that and I couldn’t stop jumping for joy when I saw the PGA results. Now, the interesting thing is that a few days ago American Hustle won the Screen Actors Guild but the PGA went to Gravity and 12 Years a Slave. So, it’s safe to say that 12 Years a Slave is still the frontrunner for the Best Picture Oscar. Let’s see what happens!

    20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards 

    sag_20th_logo_vert_color

    The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) announced the winners of 20th annual Screen Actors Guild awards on January 18th, 2014 with giving away the top prize to AMERICAN HUSTLE co-written and directed by David O. Russell. This is as surprising as one could imagine because with 12 YEARS A SLAVE recently winning the Golden Globe for Best Picture and a shitload of critics awards, everyone was sure that the SAG award would also go to 12 YEARS A SLAVE. But, as AMERICAN HUSTLE also won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) and it has such fine performances by great actors, then it’s kinda justified but it doesn’t increase its chance of winning the Oscar. Not yet. Let’s see who wins the Producers Guild Award because it would make things clear.

    Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto keep winning the awards wherever they go. They both won Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively. Plus, Leto has been a critic favorite throughout this season and it’s so nice to see him winning because he really gave excellent performance in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB.

    BREAKING BAD won the top prize for TV category and Bryan Cranston won the Best Actor prize and he said, “what a way to go,” while accepting the awards. Really. What a way to go!

    Last year, 4 top prize winners won the Oscars, i.e. Outstanding Performance by Cast, Male Actor, Female Actor and Female Actor in a Supporting Role. Let’s see if the same happens this year.

    Here is the complete list of winners:

    THEATRICAL MOTION PICTURES

    Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture: AMERICAN HUSTLE

    Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role: Matthew McConaughey, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB

    71st Annual Golden Globe Awards 

    GoldenGlobes2014_P

    The Hollywood Foreign Press Association® (HFPA) announced the winners for 71st Golden Globes Awards on January 12th, 2014 with many surprises and shocks in many categories. The ceremony was hosted by Tina Fey and  Amy Poehler once again.

    Nomination Snubs:

    • No Martin Scorsese in Best Director nomination.
    • PRISONERS didn’t get a single nomination. (no love for Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman’s powerful performances)
    • Best Screenplay race is kinda stupid. Meh.
    • Completely ignored films: Fruitvale Station, Short Term 12, Mud, the Butler, the Secret Life of Walter Mitty (when will they realize that Ben Stiller can do something good, too. This film is included on so many well known critics’ top ten lists).
    • ONLY 3 nominees in the Animated Feature category even though so many animated films were released this year.
    • No nomination for Claire Danes for her amazing performance in HOMELAND.
    • Not a single nomination for NBC’s serial killer, psychological horror drama HANNIBAL. (completely unfair!)
    • Where is MAD MEN?! Not even an acting nomination for Jon Hamm. Dammit!
    • Idris Elba?!?! This is a good kind of shock. I didn’t know he’d be nominated since he hasn’t won a single critic award for his role as Nelson Mandela yet.
    • Anna Gunn not getting nominated in Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in BREAKING BAD. Just like Jeff Daniels, who won an Emmy award for Best Actor earlier this year.
    • Lana Del Rey not getting nominated in the Best Original Song category. WHAT!
    • BOARDWALK EMPIRE completely left out and I’m not even going to talk about JUSTIFIED. I’m used to not seeing its name in awards now.
    • GIRLS shouldn’t have been nominated for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical. Its second season did everything except making me laugh.
    • NO LOVE FOR GAME OF THRONES!!!

    Completely Shut Out:

    • Nebraska – It had FIVE nominations, including the Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical.
    • Captain Phillips – FOUR nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Drama.
    • Inside Llewyn Davis – THREE nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical.
    • Philomena – THREE nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Drama.
    • Rush – TWO nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Drama.

    12 Years a Slave was leading with SEVEN nominations and only ended up winning the Best Motion Picture, Drama. Best Director went to Alfonso Cuarón for Gravity. It’s highly likely that the similar scenario would be seen at the Oscars in March. The most surprising wins of the night were Andy Samberg winning Best Actor in a TV series, Comedy or Musical for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the show winning the Best TV series, Comedy or Musical. I personally think that the Big Bang Theory should’ve won this award. It’s been going so great this season. Modern Family has’t been that good this year, so I wouldn’t want it to win anything yet.

    Best Wins:

    • Alfonso Cuarón winning the Best Director for Gravity.
    • Matthew McConaughey winning the Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for Dallas Buyers Club.
    • Leonardo DiCaprio winning the Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for the Wolf of Wall Street.
    • Jared Leto winning the Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club.
    • Jennifer Lawrence winning the Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle.
    • Spike Jonze winning the Best Screenplay for Her.
    • The Great Beauty winning the Best Foreign Language Film.
    • Breaking Bad winning the Best Drama Series.
    • Bryan Cranston winning the Best Actor in a TV series, Drama.

    “Meh” Wins:

    • Alex Ebert winning the Best Original Score for All Is Lost.
    • Bono and the Edge winning the Best Original Song for Ordinary Love from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (should’ve went to Frozen’s Let It Go)
    • Jacqueline Bisset winning the Best Supporting Role in a TV series, Mini-Series or a TV Movie.

    Sad That They Didn’t Win:

    • Gravity, for Best Motion Picture, Drama.
    • Her, for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical.
    • Steven Price for Gravity or Hans Zimmer for 12 Years a Slave in Best Original Score category.
    • Tatiana Maslany for Orphan Black or Kerry Washington for Scandal in Best Actress in a TV series, Drama category.
    • The Big Bang Theory, for Best TV series, Comedy or Musical.
    • Jim Parsons, for Best Actor in a TV series, Comedy or Musical.
    • Aaron Paul, for Best Supporting Actor in a TV series.

    …But that’s what makes these award ceremonies exciting; the snubs, the surprises, the shocks, the profanities, the awkward things, the winning moments and last but not the least, seeing your favorite stars win.

    72nd Golden Globe Awards 

    The Hollywood Foreign Press Association® (HFPA) announced the winners of their 72nd annual Golden Globe awards on January 11, 2014 with such generic winners and some mild surprises. It was an okay year of filmmaking as compared to previous years but there were some absolutely amazing performances from the likes of Michael Keaton, Jake Gyllenhaal, J.K. Simmons, Julianne Moore.

    Here are the surprises and shocks, followed by nomination snubs because it is important to include them.

    SURPRISE WINS

    1. Eddie Redmayne. That guy winning the Best Actor. My guess was either Steve Carell or Benedict Cumberbatch. Still rooting for them until the Oscars air.
    2. The Affair and Fargo winning the top honors in their respective categories. I wanted True Detective to win but I’m okay with Fargo as well. BUT BEST ACTOR SHOULD HAVE GONE TO MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY.
    3. Transparent winning the Best Comedy and Jeffrey Tambor winning the Best Actor. That’s amazing. People will finally check out that show now.

    That’s it. Those were the surprises. Like I said, HFPA announces generic winners every year. Nothing special.

    NOMINATION SNUBS

    1. Angelina Jolie’s UNBROKEN gets completely shut out. This is the biggest shock of all. Not even a single nomination, even the most anticipated one, i.e. Best Director. Poor Angie.
    2. INTERSTELLAR. Screw you, HFPA.
    3. AMERICAN SNIPER. No nominations for Clint Eastwood or Bradley Cooper. Thought so.
    4. MODERN FAMILY, THE BIG BANG THEORY, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, HOMELAND [glad it didn’t get nominated], BOARDWALK EMPIRE, THE WALKING DEAD [this series is dead to HFPA, I’m sure of it now].
    5. HANNIBAL. Screw you again, HFPA.
    6. MR. TURNER? Timothy Spall? Nothing for him? Goddamit.
    7. MAD MEN. SONS OF ANARCHY. ????
    8. Not recognizing the underrated things like Ben Affleck in GONE GIRL; Bill Hader in THE SKELETON TWINS; Channing Tatum in FOXCATCHER; the musical film BEGIN AGAIN. Alrighty then.
    In short, HFPA is on drugs this year as well.
    9. Marion Cotillard for her role in TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT. She’s a favorite this year.
    10. Benedict Cumberbatch for SHERLOCK. He won an Emmy this year for his role. In your face, HFPA.
    11. WHERE IS INHERENT VICE’S BEST PICTURE NOMINATION??? PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON’S BEST DIRECTOR NOMINATION???

    NOMINATION SURPRISES and SHOCKS

    1. The biggest surprise is probably Wes Anderson’s Best Director nomination. I wasn’t expecting to see his name as the movie came out so many months ago but it’s nice to see critics haven’t forgotten THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.
    2. TRANSPARENT. Hands down, the biggest surprise in TV category.
    3. PRIDE and ST. VINCENT in Best Motion Picture nomination. Another big surprise. INHERENT VICE deserved to be here though.
    4. Jennifer Aniston in Best Actress in a Motion Picture nomination. She’s back in the game. I want either Julianne or Rosamund to win the awards though. Both of them were so good.
    5. Quvenzhane Wallis. WHAT THE HELL?
    6. Ava Duvernay. First black female director to ever get a Golden Globe nomination. Major success.
    7. THE AFFAIR. Securing 3 big nominations with its first season.
    8. JANE THE VIRGIN? Really???
    9. THE MISSING and GAME OF THRONES securing their nominations. Great.
