  1. Joel, the Globes usually favors cable shows in both Comedy and Drama. Odds are better if they’re freshman shows [see: Cheadle, Girls].

  2. LES MIZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  3. Thank god I got Comedy/Musical wrong

  4. lol

  5. Thank you, Alison. :-)

  6. HFPA has vindicated Sam, it would appear. Hahaha.

  7. The Cloonster!

  8. Jessica Chastain in the winner’s circle.

    Well, great performance, that’s for sure.

  9. Indeed Alexander!!!!

    LES MIZ will be the night’s BIGGEST WEINNER with 3!!!!

  10. DDL!

  11. Day-Lewis rules

  12. and Day-Lewis winning on cue with the year’s most spectacular performance in any acting category.

  13. yep he rules!!!!!

  14. Seriously, this guy must have gone to speech-writing school. His speeches are always so elegant.

  15. Argo it is.

  16. So Weinstein can’t weave his political magic with the Hollywood Foreign Press as ARGO cops the big prize!!!

  17. I hope Harvey comes up short with Oscar too.

  18. I hope Harvey comes up short with Oscar too.

    Me too. I’m kind of sick of him.

  19. LES MIZ is the night’s BIG winner!!!!!

    And one must wonder if the wins by LES MIZ and ARGO will tighten the Oscar race, what with the ballots still out there for a while.

    But LINCOLN is far more formidable with Americans, so this may add up to little.

  20. I doubt SILVER LININGS goes anywhere with Oscar, and tonight’s losses would seem to indicate the nominations won’t translate to wins.

  21. Can’t help but see Argo as one of those films that is perfectly all right unto itself, but can’t survive the inevitable backlash should it win Best Picture at the Oscars. Which is admittedly incredibly unlikely considering the Affleck “snub.”

  22. Yeah, I agree, Alexander. Most likely the Best Picture winner will be one of the films that also got a director nod.

  23. I don’t read too much into the Globe picks. I still say it’s Lincoln for the win.

  24. LINCOLN does indeed remain the solid favorite with Oscar, and frankly, I’d say that director snubs included it’s biggest threats are in this order:

    The Life of Pi
    Les Miserables
    Silver Linings Playbook

  25. I don’t think Les Mis has a chance without a Director nomination, but this is feeling like an odd year, so who knows?

  26. This does feel like an odd year.

    At this point I see Anne Hathaway as the only sure thing from Les Mis, but like you said, who knows?

  27. Yes and as I said above I think Hathaway sealed an already pretty sure thing with her speech, though she lost some style points for butting in to the producer’s speech to thank more people.

  28. Yeah, that was pretty strange. I understand that she felt bad that she forgot to thank some people in her speech but that wasn’t the time to make up for it. The winners are always interviewed after the awards and she could have done it then.

  29. It’s definitely an unpredictable year but it doesn’t feel like the Globes are going to unduly influence much this year.

    On the TV note: I checked, and as I suspected this is indeed the first year the broadcast networks have ever been shut out of every single category. Until this year, they’ve always won at least one (if not all) in comedy. 2011 was the first year the networks were completely shut out of drama. Maybe they should just start casting more Brits on network television?

  30. “Argo” is kid’s stuff next to “Zero Dark Thirty”. But awards tend to like children’s films….
