Like a phoenix from the ashes, the Golden Globes are back. After some disruption due to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s notorious lack of diversity and inclusion, the nominations for Tinseltown’s drunkest celebration of film and television were announced this morning. Despite some questionable decisions like a film exploring the fallout of a salacious sex scandal being considered a comedy, the slate of nominees is relatively solid and likely a precursor of what’s to come on Oscar Sunday. Barbie topped Oppenheimer as the vision in pink leads the pack with nine nominations (three of which are in a single category). The show will also feature the inaugural award for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement which will, once again, see Swifties and Marvel fanboys go toe-to-toe. The ceremony airs on January 7th and will call CBS home for the first time since 1982.
While Christopher Nolan can’t seem to shake free from Greta Gerwig’s shadow these days, all signs point toward him joining his fellow Golden Globe nominee in the billion dollar box-office club. Not only is Oppenheimer seeing a steady uptick in domestic showings, but “following months of thoughtful dialogue,” the film will get a theatrical release in Japan come 2024. Japanese distributor Bitters End acknowledged the sensitivity around the subject matter for the nation as they reached their decision late last week.
As the year winds down, the timeline has yet to let up on the comedy. Today’s funny tweets include those about the most devout fanbase, a chair that just wants to ask you a few questions and what Fred was getting into when Wilma was away.
