Golden Globe Nominations 2014 Television.

Golden-Globes1-634x422

The Golden Globes does not only celebrate movies but it also celebrates Television shows. I do think that Television has delivered so many great shows. This year we saw the final series of Breaking Bad which was excellent. Netflix has also made a splash this year with House Of Cards, Arrested Development, Hemlock Grove and Orange Is The New Black. House Of Cards, Arrested Development and Orange Is The New Black have all picked up nominations at the globes this year.

The reason that I love television shows is that I feel you get to know the characters a great deal more and the shows seem to be more intimate. I feel that the shows on television regardless of their content are able to attract audiences as the level of intimacy is relatable on so many levels. Shows continue to deliver high quality and great stories and the audience love it. Some shows I love have been snubbed by the Golden Globes but I am glad to see some of my favorites make the list.

I think that Breaking Bad will clean up at the Golden Globes this year. I felt the final season really delivered and I don’t know many people who were disappointing with the ending. Even people who were disappointing with the ending, none of them will claim that the show was rubbish. As many claim now we are in a golden age of television and this will not end anytime soon. Netflix is currently changing the way we watch programmes and is aiming to evolve constantly. There will always be a place for television shows in the entertainment industry and I think it is a far more popular and cheaper medium that the movie industry.

Golden Globes 2014 Nominations.

Posted on Updated on

The Golden Globes is one of the most prestigious award shows for the film and television industry. Many people see it as second to the Academy Awards. The awards season finishes up with the Oscars but as the golden globes is considered the second best award show this will receive a lot of attention. Also this does give us an indication at who will be nominated for the Oscars however because the category is split between Drama films and Comedy and Musical films it does not give us a fair indication of who will be nominated for the Oscars.

The Oscars only has one category for performances and one for best film and a lot of these films will miss out on Oscar nominations simply because there are not enough slots. For example American Hustle is in the Comedy and Musical category however I think that it will get nominated for Oscars based on performances being dramatic. For example the film The Artist won for Best Picture as the Oscars but only won the Best Motion Picture Comedy and Musical and The Golden Globes. The Oscars is more prestigious and the nominees really need to fight and campaign to get nominated.

We can not just go on the Golden Globes for the Oscars though. I think Bafta and SAG also give us an idea of who will be nominated at the Oscars and usually who will win. Bafta does tend to be biased towards British films however but it is not new that British actors are able to pick up Oscar nominations and even win a great deal of the time. If you look back a few years, Geoffrey Rush won the Bafta for The King’s Speech but lost out on the Oscar to Christian Bale in The Fighter. I do like it when we are surprised at awards shows but they have become very very predictable and after the winners of the Golden Globes are announced the chances of the winners being nominated and winning increases drastically.
