Golden Globes nominations: “Martian,” “Hateful,” “Concussion” and Stallone get in

Did they widen the Oscar field, or shrink it? What the Screen Actors Guild taketh away, the Golden Globes returned to “It’s still got a shot at the Oscar.”

Right?

That’s the true purpose of the Golden Globes nominations.

Yesterday, “Hateful Eight” and “Joy” felt like Oscar write-offs. Today, “Hateful” has a Jennifer Jason Leigh nomination (deserving) and one for composer Ennio Morricone (meh) and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino (meh, again), and “Joy” gets more recognition for J-Law. “Creed” lands a sentimental Sly Stallone nomination. An overpraised “Rocky” recycling, I thought.

“Beasts of No Nation” got one nomination. Another over-praised pic, PC and topical and pretty powerful, but never once feels like something made for the big screen.  Best actor-drama nominee Idris Elba? He’s big time. The biggest thing about it.

So “Joy” gets into the mix, as does “The Martian.” Best Motion Picture–Comedy.

Lawrence and Matt Damon got nominations in “comedy” categories.

“Steve Jobs” landed two acting nominations, and a screenplay nomination and one for best score. So now it’s back in the mix.

Alicia Vikander got an “Ex Machina” Golden Globe nomination. Hurray for that. AND she got a supporting actress nomination for “The Danish Girl.”

Will Smith got a “Concussion” best actor nod, first big acclaim that film has won this Awards Season.

Paul Dano got a “Love & Mercy” nomination. The only one for that film.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” got George Miller an overdue best director nomination, and a best picture nod.

No Johnny Depp “Black Mass” nomination. No Carey Mulligan for “Suffragette.” And unlike the SAG awards, no love at all for “Straight Outta Compton.”

Love for “Room” and “Spotlight,” but more love for “The Big Short,” with multiple acting nominations.

“Trumbo” now officially feels like a contender — at least for Bryan Cranston.
“The Revenant” got best director, picture, score and actor (Leo) nominations and feels like a film to beat. “Spotlight” pulled no acting nominations. Mark Ruffalo got nominated for a little-seen comedy.

But “The Big Short” going into limited release Friday and wider release next week, seems like the BIG winner from both SAG and the HFPA. It will have Awards Bounce as it opens, fresh awards buzz. Can’t hurt.

But nobody is honoring the “Short” director, and best directors make best pictures, so “Spotlight” and “Carol” and “The Revenant” feel like Oscar front runners, right this minute. “Mad Max” is more of a “Let’s give George Miller his Oscar shot” pick I figure. Ridley Scott’s “Martian” nomination is much deserved, but Miller’s the overdue one.

McCarthy and “Spotlight” seem like natural Oscar night winners, to me.

As for the Globes? They’re handed out in mid-January (Jan. 10) on NBC. Yes, they nominate and honor TV programs, too (Netflix is the big winner among those nominations). But since TV’s Emmys are so much later in the year, and the Globes tilt so heavily towards new shows, their TV honors are even less relevant than the Oscar ones.
