Watch Golden Globes Online + Early Technical Glitch Leads to Much Ado About Nothing

Golden Globes Julianne Moore Maps to the Stars2015 Golden Globes’ nominee Julianne Moore in ‘Maps to the Stars.’

Watch Golden Globes online: Red Carpet arrivals and awards ceremony

George Clooney will be present at the Golden Globes ceremony to pick up his Cecil B. DeMille Award. Will presenters Tina Fey and Amy Poehler sink or swim – or both, alternately? Well, the 2015 Golden Globes ceremony will begin shortly. Would you like to watch it online? Here are a few possibilities. (See updated list of winners and nominations further below.)

First of all, when it comes to the Golden Globes Red Carpet arrivals, depending on where you are in the world you can watch them right now on the NBC website or at Livestream or ustream.tv or on the Golden Globes website itself. According to various online sources – in all honesty, I can’t vouch for their accuracy – you can watch the Golden Globes live streaming online at livenewschat.eu. That’s supposed to be the actual ceremony, which kicks off at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. Click on the aforementioned links at your own risk.

Double nominee Julianne Moore

So, will Selma and Into the Woods really win, respectively, Best Picture – Drama and Best Picture – Comedy or Musical? Or was their inclusion on the Golden Globes website truly just a technical glitch? Julianne Moore is a double nominee. Will she win one or two Best Actress awards?

Just in case you’re wondering, Julianne Moore has been shortlisted in the following Golden Globe categories:

  • Best Actress – Drama for Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer’s Still Alice, also featuring Kristen Stewart, Hunter Parrish, Kate Bosworth, and Alec Baldwin.
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for David Cronenberg’s anti-Hollywood satire – with shades of Billy Wilder’s Sunset Blvd.Maps to the Stars, with Moore playing a hyperkinetic Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson in the Wilder film) opposite the likes of Robert Pattinson (coincidentally, Stewart’s leading man in the Twilight movies), Mia Wasikowska (coincidentally, who nearly landed Stewart’s role in Olivier Assayas’ Clouds of Sils Maria), and John Cusack (can’t think of a Kirsten Stewart-related coincidence here).

Golden Globes presenters

The long, long list of 2015 Golden Globes presenters includes the following three movie veterans:

  • Harrison Ford; the Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor took home a Cecil B. DeMille Award in 2002.
  • Jane Fonda; Best Actress – Drama Golden Globe winner for Klute, 1971; Julia, 1977; and Coming Home, 1978.
  • Meryl Streep; eight-time Golden Globe winner in various categories, in both film and television: Kramer vs. Kramer, 1979; The French Lieutenant’s Woman, 1981; Sophie’s Choice, 1982; Adaptation, 2002; Angels in America, 2003; The Devil Wears Prada, 2006; Julie & Julia, 2009; The Iron Lady, 2011.

In addition to the following:

Golden Globes winners: Double nominee Julianne Moore tops Best Actress – Drama

The 2015 Golden Globes, held on Sunday, Jan. 11, were hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Scroll down for the full list of Golden Globes 2015 nominations and winners.

The text below was posted prior to the announcement of the 2015 Golden Globe winners.

Golden Globes snafu

Now, following a snafu at the Golden Globes’ website, some have been betting on Ava DuVernay’s Selma for Best Picture – Drama and Rob Marshall’s Into the Woods for Best Picture – Comedy or Musical. Even though the tech company handling the site’s graphics has taken full responsibility for the glitch, asserting that the 2015 “winners” were chosen randomly from the pool of Golden Globe nominees. They just weren’t supposed to go live online.

Those with short memories – and that’s most people and news outlets out there – apparently don’t recall that something similar happened in early 2009, when Anne Hathaway’s name was found on the Golden Globes site as the year’s Best Actress – Drama winner for her performance in Jonathan Demme’s Rachel Getting Married. Much ado was made in the media about the technical snafu.

Much ado about nothing, as it turned out. The 2009 Golden Globe winner in that category was Kate Winslet for Sam Mendes’ Revolutionary Road.

Julianne Moore: Golden Globes shoo-in

According to Ernst & Young LLP, the company that tabulates the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s ballots, only they know the identity of the winners of the 2015 Golden Globes. Fine. But expect Julianne Moore to take home at least one Golden Globe, anyways.

Moore has been nominated in the two Best Actress categories for Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s Still Alice (Drama) and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars (Comedy or Musical). The former also features Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, Hunter Parrish, and Alec Baldwin; in the latter, Moore’s co-stars are Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, and Carrie Fisher.

Much ado about nothing

Update: As it turned out, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood – not Selma – was selected as the year’s (English-language) Best Motion Picture – Drama. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel – not Into the Woods – was the year’s Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.

Expect much more ado about nothing when absolutely nothing of any significance happens – but media pundits create a furore anyhow because, well, they need them eyeballs and clicks.

Director Russell Crowe The Water Diviner AACTA AwardsActor-director Russell Crowe in ‘The Water Diviner’: ACCTA Awards bypasses Best Actor Oscar winner.

Director Russell Crowe Bypassed, but ‘The Water Diviner’ ties with ‘The Babadook’ for Best Film: ACCTA Awards winners and nominations

The 2015 Australian Academy Awards, a.k.a. the AACTA Awards, for Best Film – that’s right, awards – went to both Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner and Jennifer Kent’s acclaimed horror thriller The Babadook. Kent also went home with AACTA Awards for Best Director – Crowe wasn’t even shortlisted in that category – and Best Original Screenplay.

In The Water Diviner, Crowe plays an Australian man looking for his three missing sons following the bloody Battle of Gallipoli in Turkey. In The Babadook, a widow and mother discovers a malefic force in her home. But is it fantasy or reality? Both?

No international names among acting winners

Guy Pearce and former Twilight star Robert Pattinson were shortlisted for David Michôd’s dystopian drama The Rover, but the Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor AACTA Awards went to, respectively, David Gulpilil for Charlie’s Country and Yilmaz Erdogan for The Water Diviner.

The Rover did, however, win one award in the acting categories: Susan Prior was chosen as the year’s Best Supporting Actress. The Best Actress winner was Sarah Snook for Michael and Peter Spierig’s sci-fi thriller Predestination.
