Golden Globes 2014 Noms Noms (Nominations)

Yes, the nominations list was released yesterday morning and it looks like after browsing through, that Idris Elba and Chiwetel Ejiofor lead the way for the British in their lead roles as Solomon Northrup (12 Years A Slave) and the late Nelson Mandela (Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom). These two films have been highly acclaimed worldwide, especially since the passing of Nelson Mandela this week.

12 years A Slave is nominated for Best Picture (Drama), Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Director, Screenplay and Original Score. Applause to actors Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong’o, Hans Zimmer, John Ridley and Steve McQueen. Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom is being given a ‘nom nom’ in Best Actor, Original Score and Song categories. Both films will be knocking heads in the Best Actor (Drama) and Original Score. So it’s a possibility that they should get at least one. Whatever the night holds for them.

The Wolf of Wall Street will be fighting for Best Actor (Comedy/Musical) and Best Picture against American Hustle as Leonardo DiCarpo and Christian Bale’s leading roles in both films have earned them a ‘nom nom’. However, unlike Wolf of  Wall Street, American Hustle is also shortlisted for Best Supporting Actress (Comedy/Musical), Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Director and Screenplay thanks to the works of Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and director and screenwriter Eric Singer and David O. Russell. That’s seven ‘nomy noms’ overall.

So really, the battle of the gongs is between 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle. I wonder if Jennifer Lawerence will win another gong in her collection? Wonder what her thank you speech will be?

We’ll find out on January 12th 2014. See you then!
