Golden Globes hit the gas with MANK in the tank leading the noms

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent There’s a scene in MANK from Netflix where the reading of a love letter turns into a rollover accident for Herman J. Mankiewicz, so with the Hollywood Foreign Press putting this movie in the lead of Golden Globes Nominees with six possible wins? Let’s hope that scenario in the gorgeous black and white film doesn’t turn out to be prophetic as this love letter to Old Hollywood as frontrunner but a red herring. Over all, the 78...

Hollywood Award Shows in Wartime, Will History Repeat Itself?

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, Superman and Batman saluted a flyby; in 1943, the Oscar statuette was made of plaster instead of metal due to shortages during World War II. In 1945, Doubleday published “Movie Lot to Beachhead.” Edited by Look Magazine staff, and prefaced by Robert St. John, this classic sought to show how “the motion picture goes to war and prepares for the future.” St. John, who died at th...

25 Clues Meryl Streep Is Not Overrated: Out of the “Sandra Dee Box” & Into A Twitter War

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent So, here's the story, as they say in the movies... Sunday night Jan. 8, at the Golden Globes hosted by Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), award-winning actor/legend Meryl Streep stepped in it by “calling out” the new US President-Elect with a pointed speech on bullying as an undesirable trait. Long story, short, the soon-to-be-installed President Donald J. Trump, ignited a Twitter firefight in which he dubbed Str...

Golden Globes 2015 Stage a Good, Old-Fashioned, Hollywood Comeback

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent It wasn’t too long ago that the words “Golden Globes” would raise the specter of litigation, corruption, and a whiff of foul play - but no more. For 2015, it looks like current President Theo Kingma has cleaned house over at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). Because everything that won for 2015 looks to be incredibly legitimate to the prevailing sentiment among film critics. Even the usual detractors, as well as w...

The Anatomy of Award Shows, Why They Matter… Or Don’t

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent With Award Season around the corner, here’s everything you need to know about how these shows work. Maybe not everything, but from November to February in the US, this is the time of year when everyone in Hollywood switches into high gear.  The Academy Awards is the sine qua non of any future classic movie, driven by approximately 6000 industry voting members who vote in 25 categories. Last year, host Ellen Degeneres “broke...

Golden Globe Snubs And Surprises

user
  The "usual suspects" were evident at the announcement of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

the Global Film Village: SAG Awards Signal Front Runners in Several Oscar Categories

user
      by Marla Lewin Sandra Bullock continued her remarkable year where she has dominated the box office and been declared the number one top grossing star in the movies today. Bullock has become a serious best-actress competitor in the past month, with her SAG win, a win last week at the Golden Globes and a tie with Meryl Streep in the Critics Choice Movie Awards. The stars seem to be aligning for this well liked actress who has quietly entertained a...

2010 Oscars: Been There, Done That

user
  Well, after watching the Golden Globe Awards ceremonies last evening, I had the distinct feeling: who needs the Oscars? I've already seen the winning films, directors and actors and heard their acceptance speeches. The Oscar ceremony, which is not scheduled until six weeks from now, seems quite besides the point. Except for the fashion ("who are you wearing?" is the question of the moment), I am imagining that last night's Golden Globe winners will be simply re-doing their &...
