2018 Movie Awards Tally: See which movies have the most prizes

When it comes to awards, it’s nice to be nominated, but it’s even better to win. The year 2018 was one of the strongest in this decade for movies that have been well-received by critics and/or ticket-buying audiences. Movies from major studios that were blockbusters at the box office have become more critically acclaimed than they have been in recent years, and that means more of these types of blockbuster movies could be competing against smaller, critically acclaimed independent films for Academy Awards. Here’s a tally of the feature films released in U.S. theaters in 2018 that have gotten the most awards so far. This list, which is in alphabetical order, will be updated as more award winners are announced.

2019 Golden Globe Awards: ‘A Star Is Born,’ ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ will be in Drama categories, not Musical or Comedy

October 10, 2018

by Carla Hay

In a move that comes as a big surprise to awards observers, the music-oriented films “A Star Is Born” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” will not be submitted for consideration in the Musical or Comedy categories at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, and will instead be submitted in the Drama categories, according to IndieWire. The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be presented at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 6, 2019. Movies eligible for the awards are those released in  U.S. theaters for at least one week in 2018. The nominations will be announced on December 6, 2018.

Warner Bros Pictures’ 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born,” directed by Bradley Cooper, stars Cooper and Lady Gaga as two singers who have an ill-fated romance.  Cooper and Lady Gaga do their own singing in the movie, and were among the co-writers of the movie’s original songs. “A Star Is Born” was released on October 5, 2018.

20th Century Fox’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” directed by Bryan Singer, is the official biopic of the British rock band Queen, and features original, previously released songs from the band in the soundtrack. The “Bohemian Rhapsody” movie has different release dates, depending on the country. In the United States, the movie’s release date is November 2, 2018, while the United Kingdom has the first release of the film on Oct. 24, 2018. Rami Malek, who plays Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” has some of his vocals dubbed over Queen’s original songs in some of the live-performance scenes, but the movie’s songs feature Mercury’s lead vocals, for the most part. Mercury died of AIDS in 1991.

Several past music-oriented dramas have been nominated for or won Golden Globes in the musical or comedy categories, even when the movie did not have the traditional musical format of characters singing lines of their dialogues. They include 2004’s “Ray” (the Ray Charles biopic starring Jamie Foxx), 2005’s “Walk the Line” (the Johnny Cash biopic starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon) and 2010’s “Burlesque” (the burlesque-dance feature film starring Christina Aguilera and Cher).

Between “A Star Is Born” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the movie getting more awards buzz is “A Star Is Born.” Even with “A Star Is Born” competing in the Drama field at the Golden Globes, it’s still likely to get a Best Picture nomination. Cooper is one of the producers of the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born,” and he co-wrote the movie’s screenplay. Meanwhile, Cooper and Lady Gaga are expected to get nods for, respectively, Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. “A Star Is Born” will almost certainly be a top contender for Best Original Song, with “Shallow” and/or “I’ll Never Love Again” the two most likely songs to be nominated from the movie. Cooper made his directorial debut with “A Star Is Born,” and a Best Director nomination is possible for him.

Meanwhile, the most awards buzz that “Bohemian Rhapsody” is getting is a Best Actor nomination for Malek. Since “Bohemian Rhapsody” doesn’t have any original songs written for the movie, it’s ineligible for the Best Original Song category.

In the Golden Globes field of Musical or Comedy, Cooper and Lady Gaga were considered the most likely to win Best Actor and Best Actress, while “A Star Is Born” was considered a clear frontrunner to win Best Picture.  But now that they won’t be competing in the Musical or Comedy field, they face stiffer competition in the Drama field. In the category of Best Motion Picture – Drama, “A Star Is Born” will likely be competing against Cannes Film Festival award-winner “BlacKkKlansman, which is being hailed as director Spike Lee’s best film in years. “Roma,” which has been winning awards at film festivals, is a Spanish-language film that is ineligible for this Golden Globes category because Netflix is reportedly submitting the movie in the category of Best Foreign-Language Film, where “Roma” would be the clear frontrunner. Golden Globe rules prevent a movie to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Foreign-Language Film.

In the race for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, Cooper could be up against Malek of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Willem Dafoe of “At Eternity’s Gate.” “Vice,” which appears to be a dark comedy, could be submitted in the Musical or Comedy field, which means that Christian Bale (who stars in the movie as Dick Cheney) could be a contender for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy instead of competing against his former “American Hustle” co-star Cooper for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. Lady Gaga’s competition in the category of Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama could be Glenn Close of “The Wife” and Nicole Kidman of “Destroyer.” Oscar-winning directors Alfonso Cuarón of “Roma” and Damien Chazelle of “First Man” are considered early frontrunners for the Best Director category. Cooper is also likely to get nominated for Best Director, but he is unlikely to win for the first movie he directed.

As for which movies could get multiple nominations in the Musical or Comedy field, early predictions are that “The Favourite” and “Mary Poppins Returns” are the frontrunners, with Olivia Colman of “The Favourite” and Emily Blunt of “Mary Poppins Returns” most likely to be among the contenders for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The critically acclaimed hit romantic comedy “Crazy Rich Asians” could also be nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, although it faces stiff competition from “The Favourite,” which has been winning awards at film festivals, and “Mary Poppins Returns,” which has an A-list cast and Disney’s track record of award-winning musicals.

It should be noted that although “A Star Is Born” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” will be submitted in the Drama field, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the group behind the Golden Globe Awards) can still vote to put those films in the Musical or Comedy field. We’ll find out what happens when the nominations are announced.

ABOUT THE HOLLYWOOD FOREIGN PRESS ASSOCIATION:
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. This year marked the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $30 million to entertainment-related charities, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years.

2018 Golden Globe Awards: ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,’ ‘Big Little Lies’ are the top winners

January 7, 2018

With four awards each, the darkly humorous drama “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and the limited TV series “Big Little Lies” were the big winners at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 7, 2017. “Three Billboards” and “Big Little Lies” both examine violence and abuse in society, as well as how victims fight back. So it’s perhaps not a coincidence that this year’s Golden Globes will also be remembered as the year that attendees took  a very loud and visible stand against sexism, sexual harassment and abuse. Almost all the celebrities wore black in a show of support for Time’s Up, a new coalition aimed at fighting and preventing sexism, sexual harassment and abuse worldwide. Many of the attendees also worn a Time’s Up pin in support of the cause. And speaking out against sexism, harassment and abuse was at heart of speeches by several celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey (recipient of the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. deMille Award), Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Elisabeth Moss and Frances McDormand.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards ceremony (which was telecast in the U.S. on NBC) was the first major televised award show for the entertainment industry since the wave of sexual harassment scandals that hit the industry in late 2017. Seth Meyers, who hosted the show, predictably made insulting jokes about Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, two former Hollywood heavyweights who were among those who had epic falls from grace because of sexual misconduct accusations made against them.

The Golden Globe Awards are presented and voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). Dick Clark Productions (DCP) produces the telecast.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri” won Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture – Drama; Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama (for McDormand); Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture (for Sam Rockwell) and Best Screenplay (for writer/director Martin McDonaugh). “The Shape of Water” went into the award show with the most nominations (seven) and ended up winning two: Best Director (for Guillermo del Toro) and Best Original Score (for Alexandre Desplat). “Lady Bird”  also won two awards: Best Motion Picture  – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy (for Saoirse Ronan).

In the TV categories, many of the winners were those who also won Emmys in September 2017, such as “Big Little Lies” and the series’ cast members Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgård; “The Handmaid’s Tale” and its lead actress Elisabeth Moss; Sterling K. Brown from “This Is Us”; and “Master of None” creator Aziz Ansari, who won an Emmy for writing and a Golden Globe for starring in the series. Meanwhile, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and the show’s star Rachel Brosnahan won Golden Globes on their first nominations.

Presenters at 2018 Golden Globe Awards included Jennifer Aniston, Roseanne Barr, Halle Berry, Carol Burnett, Mariah Carey, Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Kelly Clarkson, Common, Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz, Viola Davis, Geena Davis, Kirk Douglas, Zac Efron, Gal Gadot, Greta Gerwig, John Goodman, Hugh Grant, Kit Harington, Neil Patrick Harris, Salma Hayek, Garrett Hedlund, Chris Hemsworth, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, Kate Hudson, Isabelle Huppert, Allison Janney, Dakota Johnson, Dwayne Johnson, Angelina Jolie, Michael Keaton, Shirley MacLaine, Ricky Martin, Helen Mirren, Sarah Jessica Parker, Robert Pattinson, Sarah Paulson, Amy Poehler, Natalie Portman, Edgar Ramirez, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Susan Sarandon, J.K.

About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. The HFPA will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2018. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate nearly $30 million to entertainment-related charities, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years. This year, the HFPA has distributed $3 million in grants through their Charitable Trust to a diverse group of organizations and institutions within the entertainment industry.

2018 Golden Globe Awards: ‘The Shape of Water’ leads movie nominations, ‘Big Little Lies’ has the most TV nods

December 11, 2017

With seven nominations, “The Shape of Water” is the leading contender overall and in the movie categories for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which is set to take place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 7, 2018. NBC will have the U.S. telecast of the show, which will be hosted by Seth Meyers. The HBO limited series “Big Little Lies” received the most Golden Globe nominations (six) in the TV categories.

The Golden Globe Awards are presented and voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). Dick Clark Productions (DCP) produces the telecast.

The nominations for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards were announced at the Beverly Hilton on December 11, 2017 by actors Alfre Woodard, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Bell and Sharon Stone,  with HFPA president, Meher Tatna and DCP executive vice president of television Barry Adelman. Eligible movies are those with theatrical releases of at least one week in the U.S. in 2017. Eligible TV shows are those that premiered new episodes in the U.S. in 2017.

NBC will televise “Golden Globes 75th Anniversary Special” at 9 p.m. ET/PT  on December 13, 2017. “Will & Grace” stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing are hosts of the show.

Predicted Contenders

“The Shape of Water” is also the top nominee at the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards, and the American Film Institute has named “The Shape of Water” among the 10 best films of 2017.  Almost all of the films nominated for Best Motion Picture at the Golden Globes have also received similar nominations at other award shows so far. They include “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “The Post,” “Lady Bird” and “I, Tonya.”

In the TV categories, several shows that made the Golden Globes nominations list in addition to the Emmy-winning “Big Little Lies” have also been nominated or won at the 2017 Emmys, including “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This Is Us,” “Stranger Things,” “Feud: Bette and Joan,” “Fargo,” “The Wizard of Lies” and “The Crown.” (“Game of Thrones” was not eligible for the Emmys this year.)

Movie Snubs and Surprises

Noticeable movie snubs include “The Big Sick,” which has been getting a lot of nominations at other award shows that honor movies. However, “The Big Sick” failed to get any Golden Globe nominations. Jordan Peele has been racking up nominations at several other award shows for writing and directing the critically acclaimed hit “Get Out,” but he was left out of the Golden Globes race for writing and directing. However, as one of the producers of “Get Out,” Peele did get a Golden Globe nod for Best Motion Picture. Curiously, even though “Get Out” is a thriller/horror movie, the Golden Globe Awards put it in the category of comedy or musical, where “Get Out” did manage to get two Golden Globe nominations: for Best Motion Picture and for Best Actor.

Superhero and sci-fi movies have a tough time getting nominations outside of technical/production categories (such as visual effects, production design, editing and cinematography), so it’s not too surprising that “Wonder Woman,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Logan” were shut out of the Golden Globes, even though these movies were critically acclaimed hits. It’s unknown if enough Golden Globe voters saw “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” in time to vote for it, and “Blade Runner 2049” got too many mixed and disappointed reactions from critics and audiences to be a serious Golden Globes contender.

Two films that have been embraced by the Golden Globes but snubbed at other movie-related ceremonies so far are the musical “The Greatest Showman” and the kidnapping drama “All the Money in the World,” which received three nominations each. “All the Money in the World” was abruptly re-shot and re-edited in November 2017, one month before its release, to remove co-star Kevin Spacey after his sexual misconduct scandal made him a Hollywood pariah. Spacey was replaced in the film by Christopher Plummer, who received a Golden Globe nod for the film, as did the movie’s lead actress Michelle Williams and director Ridley Scott.

Meanwhile, the Billie Jean King/Bobby Riggs feature film “Battle of the Sexes” has been virtually ignored by most award shows so far, but managed to get two Golden Globe nods for stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell. Although “Battle of the Sexes” is really a drama, the Golden Globes have it in the category of musical or comedy. This misplacement of dramatic, non-musical movies in the musical or comedy category is something that seems to happen every year with the Golden Globes, and it’s one of the biggest criticisms that the show gets.

TV Snubs and Surprises

In the TV categories, the Golden Globe voters show that they have very different tastes from Emmy voters when it comes to comedies. “Veep,” “Saturday Night Live” and “Modern Family,” which consistently get Emmy nominations and/or wins, failed to receive any Golden Globe nominations this time around. (“Atlanta,” which has won Golden Globes and Emmys, was not eligible for any Golden Globes this year because the show did not air any new episodes in 2017.)

Former Golden Globe favorites “Orange Is the New Black,” “House of Cards” and “Transparent” were completely snubbed. “House of Cards,” which starred Spacey until he was fired from the show in October 2017, was no doubt tainted by his sex scandal. “Transparent” also seems to have met a similar fate: the show’s star Jeffrey Tambor quit “Transparent” in November 2017, after he was accused of sexually harassing two of his “Transparent” co-workers. Tambor has denied the allegations. Spacey has apologized for one allegation against him made  by actor Anthony Rapp, but Spacey has not publicly commented on numerous other allegations against him. “House of Cards,” which already announced that its sixth season premiering in 2018 will be the show’s last season, has since announced that Spacey will not be replaced, and Robin Wright will take the lead role in the cast. “Transparent” will also continue without Tambor, but the show has not yet announced any details about future storylines or other changes to the cast.

The Golden Globes embrace TV newcomers, and many of the TV nominees in the comedy categories are newbies such as “SMILF” (two nominations), “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (two nominations), as well as “The Good Doctor,” “GLOW,” “The Deuce” and “I Love Dick,” which received one nomination each. However, there’s a big difference between new, original shows and “new-ish” shows that are reboots or remakes. Of the many TV series that were rebooted or remade this year, only two received Golden Globe nominations: “Will & Grace” (two nods) and “Twin Peaks” (one nod), which is a clear indication that Golden Globe voters are not enamored with most new versions of old TV shows. In addition, TV shows that are based on movies got completely snubbed.

Sexual Harassment Fallout

As previously mentioned, sexual misconduct scandals seem to have had an effect on Netflix’s “House of Cards” and Amazon’s “Transparent” being snubbed by the Golden Globes this year. Several other actors who have in recent months been hit with sexual misconduct allegations include Jeremy Piven, Ed Westwick, Danny Masterson and Dustin Hoffman. None of them was expected to get any Golden Globe nominations this year, although Hoffman campaigned for his role in the Netflix movie “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).”

Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct scandal in November 2017 and his admission that all the allegations against him are true have virtually ensured that he won’t be nominated for any major awards for the foreseable future. His FX comedy series “Louie,” which has been on hiatus since 2015, was cancelled after the scandal hit, and the show would have been ineligible for any awards this year anyway. Louis C.K. was an executive producer of FX’s “Better Things” until the network fired him from the show, but “Better Things” star/executive producer Pamela Adlon received a Golden Globe nod despite the scandal.

The Weinstein Company, which ousted co-founder Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, was not surprisingly shut out of the Golden Globes race this year, although the company didn’t have any really serious awards contenders for the first time in years. The closest to being an awards contender was the crime thriller “Wind River,” but award-show buzz for the movie had already faded before the Weinstein scandal hit.

However a sexual misconduct scandal seems to have had no negative effect on the award-show chances for Pixar Animation Studios, which placed chief creative officer John Lasseter on leave for sexual misconduct in November 2017. Pixar still got Golden Globe nominations for “Coco,” which is already being touted as the Oscar frontrunner to win Best Animated Feature.

“Genius” star Geoffrey Rush, nominated for a Golden Globe in the limited series, has been accused of sexual harassment, but he has vehemently denied the allegations, which were published in November 2017 by Sydney-based newspaper the Daily Telegraph. Rush is now suing the Daily Telegraph for libel.

Amazon Studios, which ousted chief Roy Price in November, had mixed results at the Golden Globes this year, by receiving three nominations, but only in the TV categories: two nods for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and one nomination for “I Love Dick.” Amazon’s movies released in 2017 were completely snubbed by the Golden Globes, most notably “The Big Sick,” which is Amazon’s 2017 movie that is most likely to be nominated at any major award show that honors movies.

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW

You filmed “The Night Manager” and “Thor: Ragnarok” in Australia. Do you pinch yourself knowing that you have these very different acting roles?

I do. I feel very lucky. When I became an actor, I wanted to move between genres and characters and never repeat myself or play the same thing twice. I have played Loki four times, but the idea that I’m allowed to play both Jonathan Pine and Loki and my character in “Kong: Skull Island,” which I was also in Australia for is truly everything I’ve always wished for is an actor, so I feel immensely fortunate.

How were you challenged in your “Night Manager” role? Did you feel you were challenged differently from your past roles?

Certainly. If you read the novel by John le Carré, it’s such a rich resource. And quite apart from being a master storyteller of espionage thrillers, John le Carré is it is a very curious student of British identity. And I think through Jonathan Pine, he’s trying to get underneath the skin of what it means to be English, how Englishness changes when were abroad, how it changes when we fight for our country, because Jonathan Pine is a former soldier, and also how it manifests in the character of Richard Roper who is an arms dealer to whom people are very drawn because Richard Roper is attractive and charismatic in and you like him, but he is deeply cynical. And I think that le Carré’s anger is that a man like Roper is an inheritor of the freedoms of British democracy but has chosen to the worst things imaginable.

With Pine, the challenge is he’s a spy. And spies dissemble and conceal and they have to be believable as they lie. And the nature of acting is always exploring identity but Pine is four different people he has to be believable in all his different guises. And that was fascinating for me to play different people with different names were different passports. So very different very new and very exciting.

At the beginning of the series, Pine is a night manager. How did “The Night Manager” director Susanne Bier talk to you about that character when we meet him at first?

Susanne and I talked a lot about uniform. Pine is a former soldier in our adaptation of the second Iraq War in 2003. And he has for reasons, perhaps known only to himself, hidden behind another uniform. He’s someone who feels comfortable behind the anonymity of service he was in military service now he’s in hotel service immensely capable, practical and resourceful.

And I think in the first episode he commits he put his heart on the line and he’s broken-hearted. And that is the thing that challenges him to do something to come out behind the uniform and stand up for something more. And I had a fascinating time. I did a night as a night manager at the Rosewood Hotel in London. And it’s all theater.

Staying in hotels since then has been a different experience because everything is immaculately managed to make the guests feel welcome. Of course, if you’re doing it well, they don’t see the work, which is very like acting. But yeah that we talked about service and putting other people before yourself because that’s what the uniform demands.

You’re so good at playing the bad guy now. When you read the script do you ever feel bad? How is it to be the bad guy?

I haven’t played the bad guy for a while. I just finished “Thor Ragnarok” in which I’m Loki again, but mercifully the bad boy pants who passed on to Cate Blanchett this time around who’s playing the goddess of death, which is significantly more bad than the god of mischief, I think in the bad-boy stakes. I do think about what the film is transmitting about people and about character and recently I’ve played people who might be construed as protagonist, as opposed to antagonists.

But with Loki, specifically, who’s the most out-and-out villain I’ve played, it always try to see to be compassionate to his point of view, and that’s how I think you get an honest performance. But I understand that at the end of Avengers he has to get Hulk-Smashed, and he has to go down.

There is a photo of you and Carrie Fisher at the White House Correspondents Dinner. How did you feel when she passed away?

Carrie Fisher was such a fighter, and I spent one evening with her in Washington last summer at the White House Correspondents Dinner as a guest of The Guardian newspaper. And she had this indomitable spirit that was bigger than the occasion. She was such a force for life and I think if we could take anything a lesson from there it’s just it’s to live as fully as we can, to embrace our weaknesses and that very act makes them become strengths.

And she was so funny. She insisted that when we were there she was looking after her dog Gary, and I was looking after Gary’s rubber duck which was a rubber duck of Princess Leia. So I felt in the presence of the outgoing president of the United States, it was only appropriate that they have a Princess Leia rubber duck in train because of Carrie’s contribution.
