If you watched the Golden Globes last week, you probably recognized a solid awards show that has more or less managed to sidestep the scandals that have plagued the HFPA over the past few years.
As it turns out, the ratings show that not many people watched the Golden Globes — but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have an impact. Along with WGA, PGA and DGA nominations the following day, the Globes signaled that the race for the best picture Oscar has narrowed to three as nomination voting closes Tuesday: “The Fabelmans,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once” “The Banshees of Inisherin” are all in good position as this long season enters its final stages.
On this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson break it down (while getting a little cheery at the mention of the potential lurking in “Banshees” from many months ago). They also touch on some campaigns that have lost steam (sorry, “Top Gun: Maverick”) and discuss some trickier categories (good luck with Best Director!) as Thompson makes his final predictions.
Stay tuned for a special Sundance-themed edition of Screen Talk and a special guest next week.
