Golden Globes: Meryl Streep Breaks Own Record + Marion Cotillard Feat

by S. Montgomery
Meryl Streep Hope Springs: Golden Globes nominated actress breaks own recordMeryl Streep in Hope Springs. In movies since the late 1970s – she was first seen in a small role in Fred Zinnemann's Julia (1977) – Meryl Streep seems to get at least one annual Golden Globe nomination. This year, her performance as a middle-aged woman attempting to revive her semi-comatose marriage in David Frankel's romantic comedy-drama Hope Springs has earned Streep her 27th nomination. To date, she has taken home a record eight Golden Globes in the various competitive acting categories.

Mostly predictable Golden Globes: Starless low-budget indie 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' bypassed while supporting categories replete with big-name stars

The Golden Globes 2013 nominations offered the usual mix of populist predictability with a sprinkle of off-the-cuff surprises. (See further below the updated list of the 2013 Golden Globes winners and nominations.)

Prestigious movies with major names either in front of or behind the camera were all nominated: Argo, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, Les Misérables, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor categories are – literally – filled with stars, from Amy Adams to Leonardo DiCaprio, from Anne Hathaway to Tommy Lee Jones.

And awards season buzz or no, a small independent film with no stars, Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild, was totally ignored.

Unsurprising Meryl Streep nod

And then there's Meryl Streep's 288th Golden Globe nomination – in truth, her 27th. A record Golden Globe nominee and winner – eight in all – Streep was shortlisted this year for Hope Springs.

To date, she has taken home Golden Globes for the following, in the various acting categories: Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), The French Lieutenant's Woman (1981), Sophie's Choice (1982), Adaptation (2002), the made-for-TV Angels in America (2003), The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Julie & Julia (2009), and The Iron Lady (2011).

For the record, composer John Williams – in the running this year for Lincoln – is the second most frequent nominee for the Golden Globes: 24 nods to date.

'Salmon Fishing in Yemen' surprise

But then the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chooses John Hawkes (The Sessions) over Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock) and pulls out of the box Lasse Hallström's domestic box office disappointment Salmon Fishing in Yemen, handing it three nominations in top categories: Best Film - Comedy or Musical, Best Actor - Comedy or Musical (Ewan McGregor), and Best Actress - Comedy or Musical (Emily Blunt).

And even though another domestic box office disappointment, Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, failed to be shortlisted in the Best Picture - Drama category, it did garner three nominations in the acting categories for Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams.

And finally, the French-language Amournot a Weinstein Company release – ended up with only one nod, Best Foreign Language Film, while Marion Cotillard is a contender for another French-language effort, Jacques Audiard's Rust and Bone.

Below is the updated list of the 2013 Golden Globes' winners and nominations. Further below you'll find our somewhat on-target Golden Globe predictions.

Marion Cotillard Rust and Bone: Golden Globes nominating rare non-English-language performance?Marion Cotillard in Rust and Bone. Even though the SAG Awards usually bypass performers in non-English-language films, Marion Cotillard has been shortlisted for her work in Jacques Audiard's French-Belgian drama Rust and Bone / De rouille et d'os. The Golden Globes also tend to bypass performers in non-English-language films, but since Cotillard is both a Best Actress Oscar winner (La Vie en Rose, 2007) and one of the stars of the Hollywood blockbusters Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, she could well end up as one of the nominees in the 2013 Golden Globes' Best Actress - Drama category. Update: Marion Cotillard is indeed in the running.

Golden Globes predictions: Big names to rule as usual?

The nominations for the 2013 Golden Globes will be announced on Dec. 13. Who will get nominated?

For starters, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has often been accused of catering to Hollywood stars – i.e., the Golden Globe nominees are those who would look best in a tuxedo or an evening gown, and who would lure the highest number of television viewers. That accusation is both on target and myopic.

True, for the Golden Globe voters, it's all about the party. But really, are the SAG Awards, the Oscars, and most of the North American film critics' groups all that different?

After all, critics' associations/societies/etc. may not always throw parties, but they do want to be noticed during Oscar – ahem, awards – season. That's a key reason why Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain have been mentioned much more often than, for instance, Isabelle Huppert (In Another Country) or Emayatzy Corinealdi (Middle of Nowhere). In fact, Corinealdi and Huppert will be lucky if they get mentioned at all, it seems.

In other words, the Golden Globes shouldn't be singled out for criticism. Yet…

Non-English-language films & starless small movies have little chance

Below are our Golden Globes 2013 predictions in most Film categories. Now, keep in mind the following:

a) Non-English-language films are only rarely nominated in “regular” categories. And there go the chances of Isabelle Huppert in In Another Country, in addition to Amour and its stars, veterans Jean-Louis Trintignant (Z, The Conformist) and Emmanuelle Riva (Hiroshima Mon Amour, Kapò), and once again Huppert, who coincidentally has a supporting role in Michael Haneke's old-age drama.

b) Little-known performers in little-seen movies almost invariably go nomination-less. And there go the chances of Emayatzy Corinealdi and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Smashed), while the chances for Quvenzhané Wallis and the relatively successful but star-less Beasts of the Southern Wild are a bit iffy.

Having said that, we believe that Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, 2007) is a big enough name – U.S. TV audiences will have seen her in Christopher Nolan's Inception and/or The Dark Knight Rises – to be able to squeeze in for her well-received performance in Jacques Audiard's French-Belgian drama Rust and Bone.

Looks like Nicole Kidman beat out Kristen Stewart. You still insist you're not pro-Kristen Stewart site?

Hey i think Kristen Stewart's great as Marylou at OTR even she's only supporting actress, i saw OTR in Thailand. Nominated or not Kristen's a great young actress.

I guess the trick is to weigh the “star appeal” versus the movie/actor. And maybe, sometimes, what the voters cup of tea is. I´m still upset over Michael Fassbenders snubb.

I'm pretty sure you meant Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook :-) She's on the top nomination list but not for the Hunger Games

@Mel

Jennifer Lawrence is there for “Silver Linings Playbook” in the comedy / musical category.

Reply
Tam -

Yes, I looked. I went through the noms and the only people who were nominated without buzz and awards were actors who were Oscar nominated or already won an Oscar. These stars are getting special treatment.
I would understand if you had her in your possibility category but not in the top 5.

Reply
Tam -

Could you explain to me why you predicting Stewart for a Golden Globe and leaving out actresses who had buzz and won critic awards or were nominated for them like
Emma Watson, Ann Dowd, Helen Hunt and Amy Adams?

Reply
Alt Film Guide -

@Tam

Amy Adams was left out of the SAG Awards and “The Master” isn't exactly the sort of movie Golden Globes voters go for.

Ann Dowd isn't a “Star.” Her chances are small. She didn't get a SAG Award nod, either.

Kristen Stewart is Kristen Stewart, much like Angelina Jolie is Angelia Jolie and that's why she got a nomination for “The Tourist” and her “In the Land of Blood and Honey” got a nod for Best Foreign Language Film.

Do you really think The Hunger Games has a chance at best picture? And even more shocking would be Julia Roberts for Mirror Mirror. Wasn´t she pretty much unanimously shot down for that portrayal?

Reply
Tam -

You can't compare her with Angelina Jolie. Nobody is like Angelina Jolie. I even say that without being a fan of her. I agree that GG are about star power but they still nominate actors who were praised for their work. Angelina was nominated in an empty comedy category. But saying that you need to be a star to be nominated is wrong. Jacki Weaver was also nominated for Animal Kingdom.
