Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
On Monday morning, the Golden Globes reinforced the notion that Hollywood is still a boy’s club. The organization, made up of about 90 foreign journalists, seemed to go out on a limb not to nominate a single woman for best director. Not Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”). Not Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”). Not Dee Rees (“Mudbound”).

Although 2017 has been called the year of the woman, the Globes managed to overlook two of the biggest female-led hits of the year: “Beauty and the Beast,” the most successful movie of 2017 so far, was snubbed in the musical/comedy category, and “Wonder Woman” was shut out for any awards. Other surprises: Jordan Peele didn’t get a nomination for writing or directing “Get Out,” although his movie did receive two nominations (for best picture and actor).

Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” a love story between a lonely woman and a monster, led all movies with seven nominations.

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through
Every awards group has their trademark quirks, and the HFPA loves nothing more than anointing the wunderkinds. And this year didn’t disappoint: On the TV side, voters embraced Showtime’s “Smilf” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”; in film, breakouts included Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, and Timothée Chalamet.

Several others across film and TV were also rewarded for their work with their first-ever Golden Globes nominations.

Movies:

Out of both actress categories, there was one sole new nominee: Margot Robbie landed her first nod in the musical or comedy field for her heralded turn as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” She’s up against previous winners Judi Dench (“Victoria & Abdul”), Helen Mirren (“The Leisure Seeker”) and Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes”) and previous nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird.”) The actress in a drama category is all previous Globe winners: Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), [link

Golden Globes 2018 TV Snubs and Surprises: ‘Mindhunter’ Shut Out as ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Makes a Splash
Year after year, the Golden Globes are always filled with surprises — more than most award shows, even. On the TV side, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s preference for new series and small member body makes for nominations some call exciting, others mind-boggling. This year was a bit more predictable — by Golden Globes standards — but still packed its fair share of twists and turns. From recent winners getting boxed out (Tracee Ellis Ross, “Blackish”) to new faces working their way in (Katherine Langford, “13 Reasons Why”), there’s quite a lot to dig into — so let’s get started on the snubs and surprises:

Beyond that, the Hollywood Foreign Press spread the nomination love around, with many of TV’s most acclaimed shows receiving just one or two nominations.

Whistler Film Festival: Signature Series: Artist Spotlight — Kyra Sedgwick
Host: Jim Gordon — Film Critic, CTV

A new series on filmmakers speaking about their work, the process and reflections on their lives, careers, family, the biz.

The honoree, Kyra Sedgwick — Director/Producer, Story of a Girl starring Kevin Bacon and Sarah Grey, spoke about her career and her new film.

Jim Gordon interviews Kyra Sedgwick

The film, showing here, Story of a Girl, is a difficult tale of a 16 year old suburban girl whose early sexual experience is recorded, posted and results in her brutal treatment by school peers.

Whistler Film Fest Shines Light on Underdogs and Emerging Talent

Whistler Film Fest Shines Light on Underdogs and Emerging Talent
The Whistler Film Festival, which returns for its 17th iteration Nov. 29-Dec. 3, has often been referred to as the “coolest” film festival, but in some ways it can also be considered an outsider’s festival.

The fest strives to provide a particularly inclusive platform with this year’s lineup including 87 films from more than 15 countries, with 30% of the feature films directed by women.

Whistler is obviously filling a vacuum in categories under-serviced by other Canadian film festivals,” says director of programming Paul Gratton, who sifted through more than 1,000 film submissions to make his picks, in addition to scouting fests around the world.

The festival is also known for its Canada-heavy programming, accounting for about two-thirds of all features.

“No other Canadian festival seems to be doing it at quite our level of engagement,” says Gratton. “But I don’t see that growing in future years beyond its current level. The non-Canadian portion of the festival keeps getting
