David Fincher’s black-and-white story “Old Hollywood” (Mank) was nominated for six trophies at the Golden Globes on Sunday, the most of any film. It will be available to watch on Netflix since December 4th.
did you see it?
It’s ok. There are not many people in Hollywood.
What about the destruction of “father”
See any of them?
Well, I don’t know how to say it. Pretend as if you have at least heard of a couple.
In a year, almost all nominated films have bypassed theaters due to the pandemic, and the “Universal Award” (which shows the biggest tent award considering the dual attention of film and television) may feel small. The nominator has been working hard to attract attention. For many people, including some in Hollywood, in most cases, when the coronavirus is still killing about 2,000 Americans, it is difficult to care about few golden things.
“The stakes have never been lowered,” Tina Fey said in a boring global ad when she returned to co-hosting the awards ceremony with Amy Poehler.
Who says no one in Hollywood is honest? Before the ceremony begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, there are other things to consider:
The traditional engine of the Golden Globes, the huge red carpet, will no longer exist this time. The winners will all stay at home. (Accepting trophies from mansions and luxury hotel rooms is good in color. Dressing up for photographers for hours, but wearing diamonds and haute couture gowns, obviously not.) Fey will receive the globe in the Rainbow Room in New York, and Poehler will be stationed The Beverly Hilton Hotel is a hotel located in Beverly Hills, California. A small number of frontline personnel and important workers have been invited to participate in person, but the usual exaggerated dinner has been destroyed.
Of course it did not help. The arrival of the 78th Golden Globe Awards made people re-realize that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is prone to awarding scandals, needs drastic reforms. For a long time, these more than 80 voting members have been portrayed as disjointed and weakly corrupt, including their own moderators. In last year’s live broadcast, Ricky Gervais referred to them as “vegetables.” However, recent news reports indicate cruel infighting and suspicious fixing of compensation.
The Los Angeles Times found that the organization had no black members.
But the reward mechanism must persist: too much capital stake is at risk. NBC pays 60 million U.S. dollars for broadcasting rights each year. Studios and streaming services companies will spend millions of dollars to promote Globe’s awards, in part to begin voting on the more prestigious Oscars on Friday. (The nominees for the Oscars will be announced on March 15. The Oscars ceremony postponed due to the pandemic will be held on April 25.)
If nothing else, Nielsen’s TV ratings for this most unusual terrestrial globe will help set expectations for an Oscar that modifies this epidemic. Last year, the “Golden Globe” attracted approximately 18.3 million viewers. At that time, “1917” and “Hollywood Once…” won the highest movie awards, and Billy Porter wore his Bjork swan costume. Traffic jams on the Internet. In contrast, in 2008, due to the screenwriter’s strike, the Golden Globes became a monotonous press conference, which was watched by only 5.8 million people.
In other words, jazz is very important.
Last year, Netflix was humiliated at the “Golden Globe.” The streaming giant participated in the awards ceremony, received 34 nominations, and won…a movie award (Laura Dern won the best supporting actress in “Marriage Story”) and one Television honors (Olivia Colman, dubbed the “Crown”). On the contrary, voters mostly insist on conservative choices.
Hopefully, this approach will be different, partly because most traditional film studios are frustrated by the epidemic. Netflix has 42 nominations, of which two movies “Mank” and “Chicago 7 Trials” are competing for the best TV series and the most prestigious awards. No streaming service has ever won in this category.
If “Chicago No. 7” wins and increases its chances of winning an Oscar, then Paramount Pictures will emerge: the 109-year-old studio reposted the movie to Netflix in the summer.
In the rest of the best drama nominations, the Hollywood cinema is represented by “Nomadland” (Nomadland), which is played by Frances McDormand as Van der Flanders (van residence). “Nomadic Land” comes from the former film art giant house Fox searchlight (now it’s just a searchlight, reflecting the change in company ownership). The “father” and “promising young woman” also from traditional film companies also included the nominees.
First, the best comedy or musical in the world will almost certainly be a streaming service. According to the predictor of the award prediction site Gold Derby, a comedy or music competition is a compromise between “Borat’s subsequent film” (Amazon) and “Hamilton” (Disney+). Also nominated are “Palm Springs” (Hulu), “Prom” (Netflix) and Sia’s “Music”, which is a misleading VOD version.
