Beasts of the Southern Wild snubbed by Golden Globes

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Jan. 13, 2013

     70th Annual Golden Globe Awards  Jan. 13, 2013

Let the award season begin with the first of the movie industry’s acclamations, the 70th Golden Globes Awards, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Lincoln came up big with seven Golden Globe nominations. Steven Spielberg’s historical drama topped all films with seven nods, including ones for Best Motion Picture Drama and stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field. Ben Affleck’s Argo and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained picked up five each.

Presumed Oscar front-runner Les Mis is up for four awards, including Best Comedy/Musical and acting honors for Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway. This year, Jodie Foster will be honored the Cecil B. De Mille award. I was sorry to see Beasts of the Southern Wild not receiving one nomination. I thought newcomers Quvenzhané Wallis and Dwight Henry both gave stunning performances. But kudos to Bradly Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence on their first Golden Globe nominations for Silver Lining Playbook.

The show will air January 13, 2013, and sharing hosting duties will be Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood and actress Frances Fisher, is the Miss Golden Globe, who will assist on stage.
