Last night Alfonso Cuaron picked up one of the biggest precursor awards for his space epic. It wasn’t a complete surprise when Cuaron’s name was announced; he previously received a Golden Globe for “Gravity” as well. If we have learned anything from this win it is that “12 Years a Slave’s” front-runner status is in danger.
“12 Years a Slave” was the early favorite. People loved “Gravity” when it landed in theaters, but people still said “12 Years a Slave” was the film to beat. When December came around and critic’s awards were being announced you often heard one of the two films being named best picture of 2013 with “Her” and “American Hustle” thrown in intermittently.

Golden Globes: Final Predictions
“American Hustle” will win big tonight. At least that’s what we’re predicting. It’s been a long time since the Golden Globes have had so many categories that could go either direction. “Gravity” vs. “12 Years a Slave” will be the biggest rivalry of the night.
Both Television and Film Nomination Predictions are listed below.
So here are our predictions and odds for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards:
Film: 1st Annual M10 Nominations

12 Years a Slave, Gravity, Inside Llewyn Davis, Her all squeeze into the top 20 films of the decade so far. The Social Network continues reign as best film of the decade.
This time last year we compiled the top 20 films of the decade so far, and now we have updated it. Unfortunately of the 20 slots only four 2013 films have factored into the list, but all have made the top 10.
Remember, this list will be updated each year and films may fall shorter or fall off completely each year. Movies (like fine wine) can get better with age. So here is where we stand as of now at the end of 2013. (more…)
Top 20: Movie Quotes of 2013
This list probably shouldn’t be posted just yet. There needs to be some time for the December films to popularize. I’m sure “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Her,” and “Inside Llewyn Davis” will have some quotes here, but there are none known of at this time. If you know some good ones from any December films please let us know!
This List will be updated until the end of January 2014.
Warning: Some Strong Language (more…)
Many would have strong arguments that state that Golden Globes matter very little to the Oscar race. I think, in some cases, they matter a lot. Even since their slates started showing up more clean (No More “The Tourist” incidents) the H.F.P.A. has been given us some solid selections in each category.
This year there were a couple notable things that occurred. A couple notable films/shows that were left out of contention, and a couple of reasonable twists, and some unreasonable. So let’s take a look at these nominations and see what was good, what was bad, and what was just ugly. (more…)
Awards: Final Golden Globe Predictions
One of the most widely acknowledged awards shows will announce its nominees 5:15am PT/8:15am ET. After what we have seen with the Screen Actors Guild nominees you should be expecting attention from “The Butler,” “Enough Said,” and “August: Osage County.” Among the usual front-runners.
After tomorrow the Golden Globes Page will only predict winners of the categories and we’ll see how we did.
So here are the Final Golden Globe Predictions: (more…)
