    66th Annual Writers Guild Awards 

    Awards-details-back

    The Writers Guild of America (WGA) announced their winners for 66th annual Writers Guild Awards on February 1st, 2014 with giving away the top prizes of Original Screenplay, Adapted Screenplay and Documentary Screenplay to HER, CAPTAIN PHILLIPS and STORIES WE TELL respectively. I was expecting BEFORE MIDNIGHT to win the Adapted Screenplay prize and it has changed the game a little as Captain Phillips might end up winning the Oscar.

    The biggest NOMINATION SURPRISE was John Ridley‘s snub from Adapted Screenplay for 12 Years a Slave and instead the inclusion of Blue Jasmine (which is another surprise).  That is because, under guild rules, the only eligible scripts are ones produced under WGA jurisdiction or under a collective bargaining agreement in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or the U.K. Hence, 12 Years a Slave‘s omission. Another high-profile contender that’s been omitted is Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope‘s screenplay work in Philomena. The eligible original screenplays that were overlooked: Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron for Gravity; Nicole Holofcener for Enough Said; Joel and Ethan Coen for Inside Llewyn Davis; and, in adapted, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro for  The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug; Jason Reitman for Labor Day; and Steve Conrad for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

    Last year, Chris Terrio won the WGA and Oscar both for his screenplay work in Argo. The original screenplay went to Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained (which had been ineligible for WGA) instead for Mark Boal for Zero Dark Thirty – the winner of WGA last year. Is it possible that the history will repeat itself this year and John Ridley will win the Oscar? Probably. Let’s see what happens!

    TV wins are reasonable and satisfactory and I don’t find a single problem in them with the exception of Hannibal‘s nomination snub. This series has some exceptional writing and overall setting and I don’t know why the critics and guilds are failing to recognize that.

    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.

    14th Annual American Film Institute Awards 

    AFIAwards2013_logo

    The American Film Institute (AFI) announced on December 9th, 2013, the official selections of AFI AWARDS 2013 – 10 outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image.

    Although the list is too mainstream, there are a few films about which I feel like they shouldn’t have been there. The biggest snubs are Rush, Prisoners, Frances Ha, Upstream Color, Mud and all the Oscar shortlisted documentaries. All of them are amazing movies and any one of them could have easily replaced Saving Mr. Banks (I haven’t seen the movie yet but I don’t think I’m going to like it that much either)

    Talking about the TV programs, then I don’t know what were they smoking when they included Veep, the Americans and the Good Wife on the list. They’re good shows, no doubts, but American Horror Story: Coven? Hannibal? On the other hand, thank God, they didn’t include Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the list.

    Here is the full list of top films and TV programs of the year:

    MOVIES OF THE YEAR

    • 12 YEARS A SLAVE
    • AMERICAN HUSTLE
    • CAPTAIN PHILLIPS
    • FRUITVALE STATION
    • GRAVITY
    • HER
    • INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS
    • NEBRASKA
    • SAVING MR. BANKS
    • THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

    TV PROGRAMS OF THE YEAR

    • THE AMERICANS
    • BREAKING BAD
    • GAME OF THRONES
    • THE GOOD WIFE
    • HOUSE OF CARDS
    • MAD MEN
    • MASTERS OF SEX
    • ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
    • SCANDAL
    • VEEP
