GOLDEN GLOBES PREDICTIONS: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Natalie Portman to Score Wins?

From Vanity Fair’s Golden Globes predictions: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Natalie Portman and Ashton Sanders are some of those whose work could score a win.

Golden Globes Predictions: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Natalie Portman?

The Golden Globes are upon us. Recently Vanity Fair made Golden Globes predictions on who will walk away winners. Casting predictions for Golden Globes is notoriously tricky, because just about anything can happen. Golden Globe wackiness is half the fun of watching. That winners are often named for their sheer star power is another reason to watch.

That aside, Vanity Fair is expecting Manchester by the Sea to win Best Picture, Drama. Equally, they’re predicting La La Land to take Best Picture, Musical or Comedy. Actually, that’s pretty much what we’ve been hearing from a lot of sources: these movies have truly got award buzz. Vanity Fair could be playing it safe, but these are respectable predictions. The same goes for Casey Affleck, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and director Damien Chazelle for their work in the above films. Vanity Fair is also predicting a win for Natalie Portman for her work in Jackie, which has outstanding word of mouth.

Finally, we’re glad to see Tom Ford receiving nominations for Nocturnal Animals, even if he’s not expected to win.

December, a Good Month for Movies

Paper has published a list of unmissable films for December. It’s actually a good, well-rounded list. New offering from Jim Jarmusch (starring Adam Driver, no less)? A movie about Neruda? A couple of horror films? Sign us up.

Adam Driver stars in Paterson, which finds its way to theatres December 28th. Image Amplified www.imageamplified.com
Adam Driver stars in Paterson, which finds its way to theatres December 28th.

We’ve already seen and loved Pedro Almodovar’s Julieta. We’ve also seen I, Daniel Blake and found it to be one of those movies you’re sort of required to like, to prove you have a conscience (It was a bit heavy handed, maybe?). La La Land is getting good word of mouth, but we’d definitely see it anyway.

Films for December

  1. Paterson: Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey—they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, he writes poetry into a notebook; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

    Jim Jarmusch
    Actors
    Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani, Barry Shabaka Henley, Cliff Smith, Chasten Harmon, William Jackson Harper, Masatoshi Nagasi
  2. Julieta: Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antía. They both suffer in silence over the loss of Xoan, Antía’s father and Julieta’s husband. But at times grief doesn’t bring people closer, it drives them apart.
    Director
    Pedro Almodovar
    Actors
    Emma Suárez, Adriana Ugarte, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, Darío Grandinetti, Michelle Jenner, Rossy de Palma
  3. The Eyes of My Mother: In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of Francisca’s family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca’s loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a dark form. Shot in crisp black and white, the haunting visual compositions evoke its protagonist’s isolation and illuminate her deeply unbalanced worldview. Genre-inflected, but so strikingly unique as to defy categorization, writer/director Nicolas Pesce’s feature debut allows only an elliptical presence in Francisca’s world, guiding our imaginations to follow her into peculiar, secret places.

  5. Neruda: Beloved poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) is also the most famous communist in post-WWII Chile. When the political tides shift, he is forced underground, with a perseverant police inspector (Gael García Bernal) hot on his trail. Meanwhile, in Europe, the legend of the poet hounded by the policeman grows, and artists led by Pablo Picasso clamor for Neruda’s freedom.

    Neruda, however, sees the struggle with his police inspector nemesis as an opportunity to reinvent himself. He cunningly plays with the inspector, leaving clues designed to make their game of cat-and-mouse ever more perilous. In this story of a persecuted poet and his obsessive adversary, Neruda recognizes his own heroic possibilities: a chance to become a symbol for liberty, as well as a literary legend.
