The Golden Globes Nominations — Is this the true Oscar preview?

globe
 You look at the best picture (drama, anyway) field, and some of the acting categories, and even allowing for the double-your-chances by splitting comedy and drama, and we could be looking at the full potential field for the upcoming Academy Awards. In some form.
Nominating Emily Blunt instead of Meryl Streep for “Into the Woods” is a stretch, but she’s wonderful. Streep is majestic and working on a whole other level, but maybe the Academy will recognize that, as the Screen Actor’s Guild did.
Much love for “Foxcatcher,” which has been waiting for awards buzz before it is rolled out into wider release.
“Boyhood” and “Birdman” still look like Oscar favorites, and both could collect Golden Globes, as they’re in separate categories.
Another bit of Robert Duvall recognition for a weak film (“The Judge”) and far from his best work. But whatevs. Love Duvall.
“Grand Budapest” and “Lego Movie” (and “Noah,” if you count original song) are the “oldest” (came out in spring) movies in this mix.
Here’s the Hollywood Foreign Press Association website, if you want to see it online — but below, here’s the full FILM (their TV picks lean to “whatever’s new”) list of nominations.
