Gang:  Just my view, but the Golden Globes this coming Monday evening are huge stakes with respect to giving this film further momentum and getting the broader audience to see this.  If it should sweep the GG awards, this will certainly put in motion the need to have it marketed to more than a single theater in all of the large venues.  It will also do more to have mainstream acceptance of this film...Huge, huge stakes I'm afraid.  If for some reason it fizzles at the GG, this will not bode well going into Oscar night.  A big chance for Ledger, Gyllenhaal, Williams, Lee to steal the show!!

ChefStevo:

What say you, pilgrim?  Naysayer?  Doubting Thomas?  That your hands should be chopped off at the wrists and keyboard thrown out with the laundry.  I feel certain that Mr. Ledger will, at the very least, garner nomination for an Academy Award.  I'm telling you the Golden Globes will be "the thing" if I can plagiarize Macbeth.  Awards are awards and so we should apply some level of reason despite what our hearts are desperately willing.  It does become somewhat of a favorites contest among the members of the Academy and so unless we can become voting members, we will have to trust the judgment of those who "know" their craft.  It has been an exceptionally long time since a male actor has carried off this significant level of a performance.  Yeah, yeah, yeah...I've heard all I want to hear about Nicholson, Eastwood, the highly-overrated fellow who played in The Aviator (his name escapes me thankfully), Cruise, Hackman, you name em, etc.  Let the plethora of reviews for Mr. Ledger's unmatched performance be all the evidence needed.  I so look forward to Ms. Swank (the previous year's best actress) stepping into the microphone and announcing the winner of the coveted Best Actor award.  "The Oscar goes to....(hushed silence across the audience, every heart beating wildly out of its chest)...Looking inside the red sealed envelope that she has difficulty opening..."O my gosh,...Heath Ledger for Brokeback Mountain"....Wild applause, standing ovation, turning to kiss a tearful Michelle, receiving a huge hug from yet another tearful Jake, and then walking to the stage and wondering "Can this even be real?"....Thunderous applause continuing as he accepts a congratulatory kiss along with his statuette from Ms. Swank.  He turns into the cameras and looks out at his acting peers with awestruck humility...

BBM wins Cinematography, Best Score, and Adapted Screenplay in addition to Pic, Director, Actor (he better, although industry people love PS Hoffman and he is so talented, too), and Best Supporting Actress. In the Best Supporting sometimes they give comedic Oscars which would help  June Bug's Amy Adams--I hope not, although Amy is great! (I think the Academy will thank Clooney for his work all year with a Best Supporting for Syriana). Hopefully, Jake will be nominated for Best Supporting..who knows--his family is very connected in Hollywood like other young winners Mira Sorvino, Gweneth Paltrow, and Marisa Tomei. Jake's brilliant role was that of a lead actor, but nominations are tricky sometimes. Geena Davis won in supporting category when hers was a lead role (Accidental Toursit). Anthony Hopkins won for Silence of the Lambs and Frances McDormand won for Fargo --they both had less than 30 minutes of screen time in their pictures!!! I hope their are plenty of nominations for the film...the only two picture contenders are Crash and Good Night and GoodLuck. They are great films, but BBM is the better choice...we'll see!
We can't change it. We will have to stand it.

I think Heath will beat out Philip S in GG's but might not in oscars cause Philip is really popular amongst his peers, and GG's isn't as insider right, it's Hollywood foreign press right?

Thanks to Toadily for posting these in the News Coverage.

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/01/13/DDG9HGJ9II34.DTL

"...WILL WIN: Although Hoffman deservedly will corral a share of the votes, look for Ledger to take home the prize.

SHOULD WIN: Ledger, because he's simply unforgettable....."



When the 63rd annual Golden Globes are dispersed, it will be the first time the award show airs on a Monday night in 12 years on NBC. The star-studded ceremony was moved from Sunday so "it wouldn't be in direct competition with the NFL playoffs," said Wendy Luckenbill, the network's vice president of entertainment publicity.

For those who follow movies more avidly than football, the Golden Globes are in a league of their own -- the most important playoff on the road to the Academy Awards. The Globes have an 80 percent accuracy rate forecasting the Oscars' best picture pick, an impressive statistic even if it is skewed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group behind the Golden Globes, dividing the best-picture categories into drama and musical or comedy, thereby doubling the number of winners.

In a year in which the Oscar race is wide open, those who take home a Globe will have an advantage for the really big prize. Members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have to cast their ballots for Oscar nominations by Jan. 21, so they're sure to be keeping score Monday night.

Belying its past reputation of being a tad too cozy with the Hollywood establishment, the foreign press nominated five independent films for best drama, each made for less than $30 million. Pricey big studio entries such as "King Kong," "Munich," "Memoirs of a Geisha" and "Cinderella Man" were passed over in the process.

This crop of nominees most closely resembles the 1997 show when art house films like "Shine," "Secrets and Lies," "Fargo" and "The English Patient" dominated the slate. While Luckenbill denies that NBC is concerned about ratings, historically audiences for movie award shows are smaller when fewer people have seen the nominated films. It's like watching the Tony awards when you aren't familiar with any of the plays.

Nominated films like "Brokeback Mountain," "Match Point" and "Mrs. Henderson Presents" have yet to open in most parts of the country. "The Squid and the Whale," up for best musical or comedy, has taken in less than $5 million, and it was released months ago. In the best-drama category, "The Constant Gardener" is the highest grosser, bringing in nearly $35 million. That's peanuts compared to "King Kong," which is lugging toward a gorilla-size $200 million.

Besides easing the way to Oscar glory, a win Monday is sure to boost box-office interest. Look for distributors to take out splashy ads proclaiming Golden Globe recipients. What will those advertisements say? Here are my fearless predictions of the winners, along with my opinion of the most deserving.


Picture, drama

NOMINEES: "Brokeback Mountain," "The Constant Gardener," "Good Night, and Good Luck," "A History of Violence," "Match Point."

WILL WIN: "Brokeback Mountain," a standout even in this distinguished company.

SHOULD WIN: "Brokeback Mountain," because it was made with such care and compassion and because the subject matter couldn't be timelier.




Actor, drama

NOMINEES: Russell Crowe ("Cinderella Man''), Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Capote''), Terrence Howard ("Hustle & Flow''), Heath Ledger ("Brokeback Mountain''), David Strathairn ("Good Night, and Good Luck'').

WILL WIN: Although Hoffman deservedly will corral a share of the votes, look for Ledger to take home the prize.

SHOULD WIN: Ledger, because he's simply unforgettable.

Director

NOMINEES: Woody Allen ("Match Point''), George Clooney ("Good Night, and Good Luck''), Peter Jackson ("King Kong''), Ang Lee ("Brokeback Mountain''), Fernando Meirelles ("The Constant Gardener''), Steven Spielberg ("Munich'').

WILL WIN: Lee, as close to a global director as Hollywood has.

SHOULD WIN: Lee, as much for the range of his work as the subtlety he displays in "Brokeback."


Screenplay

NOMINEES: Woody Allen ("Match Point''), George Clooney and Grant Heslov ("Good Night, and Good Luck''), Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco ("Crash''), Tony Kushner and Eric Roth ("Munich''), Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana ("Brokeback Mountain'').

WILL WIN: McMurtry and Ossana, to round out "Brokeback's" sweep or near sweep.

SHOULD WIN: McMurtry and Ossana, for fleshing out Annie Proulx's memorable short story and especially for breathing life into the main characters' wives, who were mere asides in the story.
