Hmmm…I just took a look at the Golden Globe nominations. Of the best picture candidates, there are only a small handful of nominations (such as Brokeback Mountain, The Squid and the Whale, and Walk the Line) that I was thinking would get nominated.
The other nominations seem to go all over the place. There are some movies here, which I only briefly heard of in reviews and advertisements. That may actually be a good thing, since I may try checking out a few of the films before the awards season really gets going.
Even though it will be a couple of weeks before I officially make my predictions, I can say that Brokeback Mountain is really the standout nominee here. Another standout here, which may battle Brokeback during the Oscars, is The Squid and the Wale.
Awards season has officially begun!
