The Golden Globes are being handed out tonight which means the best movies have to offer are being honored. While television is also be honored tonight, so too are the films of this past year. Part of the glory of the Golden Globes is that the Oscars are likely being predicted tonight, but even if the actors and their projects win tonight end up getting snubbed, they still at least have their Golden Globe moment in the spotlight.
Despite being split into two categories, the five films in each Best Picture category for the Golden Globes really gives us a good idea of who will be nominated for an Oscar. With ten Best Pictures nominated at the Oscars, the 10 Golden Globe films are very likely to get nods, but the question is who took home the Globe and secured Oscar favoritism?
Best Picture — Comedy or Musical
American Hustle — WINNER
Inside Llewyn Davis
The Wolf of Wall Street
American Hustle was the heavy favorite entering the night, so it’s no surprise that it ended up walking away with the Globe for Best Picture in Comedy or Musical. One thing this does do is put it in a good position with the Oscar odds, as it’s a lock for a nomination this week and with a Globe under its belt, enters the Oscar race a nice favorite.
