Since the Oscar ballots were already turned in, the Golden Globes have very little bearing on who will get nominated this Thursday when the nominees are announced, but what the Globes do is potentially shift the Academy into picking different winners based on their speeches and likability throughout the night. It also solidifies certain momentum, say the supporting categories in which J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) … Read More Oscars Watch: 72nd Annual Golden Globe Winners

Oscars Watch: 2014 National Board Of Review Awards
