Fox Searchlight and ‘Birdman’ Dominate 2015 Golden Globe Nominees

2015 Golden Globe Nominations Announced

Awards is continuing to get underway with the announcement of the 72nd Golden Globe Awards nominations this morning at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Kate Beckinsale, Peter Krause, Paula Patton, and Jeremy Piven did the honors as they were welcomed by Hollywood Foreign Press Association president, Theo Kingma and Miss Golden Globe, Greer Grammer. Fox Searchlight dominated the Golden Globes with 12 nods with its top contender Birdman contributing to seven of them. Check out the full list of nominees after the break. 

Not too far behind Fox Searchlight is The Weinstein Company with 10 nominations, whose films The Imitation Game and Big Eyes both earned five and three nods, respectively. Boyhood is again nipping at the heels of Birdman, with both movies finding similar results with this year’s SAG Awards nominations.

Fargo leads the TV series nominees with five, but True Detective is close behind with four. The Good Wife, The Affair, House of Cards, the Normal Heart, Olive Kitteridge, and Orange is the New Black all tied with three noms each. Game of Thrones, however, only received one nomination for the Best Drama series category. The fantasy epic has only been nominated at the Globes two other times, back in 2012, with Peter Dinklage winning for Best Supporting Actor.

The Globes invites a lot of controversy based on their split genre categories and bizarre nominations – The Tourist for Best Comedy anyone? Nonetheless, this year’s nominees are solid choices. Laura Dern continues to get shut out of Best Supporting Actress for her role in Wild, but I am glad to see Ralph Fiennes finding some love for The Grand Budapest Hotel. And, again, I don’t believe St. Vincent has any place in this year’s award talks. Other than that, I’m not surprised by most of these picks. It’s still a pretty close race for most of these categories though.
