73rd Golden Globe Awards Ceremony  WHO WILL THE WINNERS BE??


The 73rd Golden Globe Awards will honor the best in film and American television of 2015 and will be broadcast live on January 10, 2016, from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California 5:00 p.m. PST

Nominations for the 73rd annual Golden Globes are “Carol” leading the way with five nods, while Netflix had a network-high eight mentions.

“Carol,” a drama about two lesbians falling in love in the 1950s, netted nods for both of its stars, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, while Todd Haynes was also nominated for directing the film. It also captured nominations for best picture – drama and for Carter Burwell’s score.

Survival drama “The Revenant,” the Apple founder biopic “Steve Jobs” and the financial crisis comedy “The Big Short” were close behind with four nods apiece. It was a very good morning for “The Big Short,” which scored nominations for best picture – comedy, screenplay and acting nods for Christian Bale and Steve Carell. The film was a late entry to the awards race and was originally slated to open in 2016.

In addition to “The Revenant” and “Carol,” the dramatic film race will be between “Spotlight,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Room.” “The Martian,” “Trainwreck,” “Joy” and “Spy” join “The Big Short” in the best comedy or musical category.

The Golden Globes recognize both film and television. Multiple TV shows landed a leading three mentions, including “American Crime,” “Fargo,” “Mr. Robot,” “Outlander” and “Transparent.”

In the dramatic actor category, leading men were honored for playing real people. Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Revenant”) portrayed 19th century frontiersman Hugh Glass (although his true story is shrouded in myth), while Michael Fassbender (“Steve Jobs”) was recognized for playing the title role and bringing the prickly founder of the iPhone and the iPad to life. In addition, Bryan Cranston (“Trumbo”) portrayed Oscar-winning screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, Will Smith (“Concussion”) took on the NFL as Dr. Bennet Omalu and Eddie Redmayne (“The Danish Girl”) essayed the part of Einar Wegener, an artist undergoing one of the first sex-change operations.

With Mara and Blanchett capturing two of the five best actress in a drama slots, the rest of the nominations went to Brie Larson’s work as a kidnapped mother in “Room,” Saoirse Ronan’s performance as an Irish immigrant in “Brooklyn” and Alicia Vikander’s portrayal of Redmayne’s supportive wife in “The Danish Girl.” Focus Features, the studio behind “The Danish Girl,” and the Weinstein Company, the company backing “Carol,” have been campaigning for Vikander and Mara in the supporting actress category, but Globes voters had other ideas.

Twentieth Century Fox, having scored the most studio nominations with 12, flew high with “The Martian” and Alejandro Inarritu’s “The Revenant.” Matt Damon, nominated for best actor – comedy for “The Martian,” was among three mentions for the box office smash. It also received a nod for helmer Ridley Scott and was nominated for best comedy or musical feature, despite the fact that it is more of a thriller with comic moments than an out-and-out comedy.

Lady Gaga landed her first Globes nod for FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel,” which was also nominated for best TV miniseries.

The CW also scored in the best actress in a comedy series category, with Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) and Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex Girlfriend”) capturing nods. Also recognized were Julia Louis-Dreyfus for “Veep,” Jamie Lee Curtis (“Scream Queens”) and Lily Tomlin for Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie.”

Best actress – TV series, drama will be a race between Emmy winner Viola Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Caitriona Balfe (“Outlander”), Eva Green (“Penny Dreadful”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).

The best actor – TV series, comedy favored a raft of new shows. Last year’s winner Jeffrey Tambor (“Transparent”) returns, but he will be matched by nominees from new programs such as Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Gael Garcia Bernal (“Mozart in the Jungle”), Rob Lowe (“The Grinder”) and Patrick Stewart (“Blunt Talk”).

Best animated film honorees include “Anomolisa,” “The Good Dinosaur,” “Inside Out,” “The Peanuts Movie” and “Shaun the Sheep Movie.” Films such as “Spotlight” and “Carol” have done well with critics groups and with Globes voters,

The Globes are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a group of  90 journalists and photographers. The organization has been criticized at times for its idiosyncratic choices, nominating critically savaged films such as “Burlesque” and “The Tourist” in years past.

Ricky Gervais, who drew strong ratings by skewering Hollywood’s A-list in three previous hosting gigs, will return as emcee after a three-year absence in which Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosted. The Globes telecast will take place on Jan. 10. Denzel Washington, a Golden Globe winner for “The Hurricane” and “Glory,” will receive the Cecil B. Demille Award for career achievement.
