Golden Globe Nominations: Shocks, Snubs And Predictions

Category: Media & Culture / Dec 12, 2013 4:27PM EDT

The Hollywood Press Association came out this morning with their list of nominees for the 71st annual Golden Globes. The Globes are a huge award show with many categories and sub-categories for both television and the big screen.

Like all award shows there are always surprises, shocks and snubs but which were the stand-outs when it comes to the Movie categories? Ellen Killoran sat down with IBTimesTV to weigh in on who was robbed of a nomination and who she predicts will win.

One of the favorite films of this year is ’12 Years A Slave’ but Ellen seems to think that this film could loss to ‘American Hustle’ in the Best Motion Picture category. Just to say those who were snubbed at the Globes like Oprah Winfrey for her performance in ‘The Butler’ still have a chance to win an Oscar.

So how much do the Golden Globes influence The Academy Awards?

Ellen confirms that the Award shows are very different, and often do not mirror each other. Rather Ellen thinks the Globe nominations can give actors or directors “momentum” moving into the biggest Award show of the year- The Oscars.

So who will win big, and walk away with a gold statue?
