Intriguing Golden Globes Predictons! It's All About the Schools! 


Stephanie from StudySoup emailed me to share her intriguing theory! Golden Globe winners can be predicted based on the schools the nominees attended! Huh, say you? It's a pretty darn good argument:

Since the Golden Globes began handing out awards in 1943, alumni and attendees of one school have shone brighter than the rest. New York University (NYU) tops all schools with past students taking home 34 Golden Globes – nine more than the next college or university.

NYU credits past successes to the performances of all-time greats including Oliver Stone, Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Martin Scorsese, Forest Whitaker, and Angelina Jolie.

So based on those assumptions, the following nominees will win this Sunday:

Aziz Ansari (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
Rachel Bloom (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
Lady Gaga (Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television)
Felicity Huffman (Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television)
Maura Tierney (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television)


Do you agree? Intrigued? Read more here. And see my fearless Golden Globes predictions here. I didn't use the nominees' schools, but I guess I should have! :tongue

"Bridge of Spies," "Carol" Lead BAFTA Nominations! Where's "Mad Max?" What About "Star Wars?" 


Leave it to the Brits! The BAFTA nominations were announced and they gave us a slightly different look at the awards season! For instance, Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight," the leading Oscar contender in the U.S. just received 3 noms including Best Film, Supporting Actor for Mark Ruffalo and Original Screenplay. No Director nomination for McCarthy.

Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies," a handsomely-produced period piece led the pack along with Todd Haynes' "Carol," another handsomely-produced period piece. Both films garnered nine nominations each including Best Picture. "Bridge of Spies" and "Carol" will duke it out with "Spotlight," Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu's "The Revenant" (eight nominations), and Adam McKay's "The Big Short" (five nominations) for the Best Picture trophy.

So where's "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" you ask? They're relegated to the technical categories. Apparently, sequels, no matter how great they are, can't compete with originals. God forbid!

The BAFTA Awards or the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards will be given on Valentine's Day in London! Will they show love to favorites "Bridge of Spies" and "Carol?" Stay tuned.
