2013 Golden Globe Predictions

Golden Globe Awards

Thanks for stopping by NerdTears.com for my Golden Globe predictions.

I was very upset with the Oscar nominees this year considering Ben Affleck, Kathryn Bigelow, Leonardo DiCaprio, Javier Bardem, Tom Hooper and John Hawkes were all snubbed. The Academy has always been out of touch which is why I like the Golden Globes. They have categories for Comedy and once gave best picture to “The Hangover” in the Best Musical/Comedy category. The Oscars are so out of touch and don’t really appreciate all types of film. Why can’t a comedy, horror or action flick be treated just like the dramatic films? The last comedy to win the Oscar was Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall”! The Academy nominates films like “Amour”, which fall in to that safe Oscar choice type of flick. I lost complete faith in the Oscars on March 21, 1999 when they awarded “Shakespeare in Love” Best Picture over “Saving Private Ryan”. Even throughout the history of the Oscars, they have disrespected legendary filmmakers. Alfred Hithcock never won an Academy Award. Martin Scorsese did not win until “The Departed”! What about “Goodfellas”, “Taxi Driver” or “Raging Bull”?!? In the last couple of years, we’ve seen forgettable films like “The King’s Speech” and “The Artist” take home Best Picture, while films like “Drive”, “Inception” or “The Social Network” are still being talked about constantly.

Anyways, enough of my ranting. I will put out an Oscar Prediction blog as we get closer to February 24th, 2013.

For now, here are my predictions for tonight’s Golden Globe awards. Read Kevin’s Precitions Here

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

wow…

I just went to Fandango to buy “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” tickets in 48 Frames IMAX 3D because I want to see the nine minute “Star Trek Into the Darkness” prologue. I was SHOCKED to see that there are SIX ways to buy tickets for the flick. How are people supposed to know which is which and what to spend their money on. I’ve seen the film in 48 Frames Per Second (HFR= High Frame Rate) and it looks gorgeous. Normal films are shot and projected at 24 frames per second. Here’s a brief breakdown of the six different types of tickets you can buy. I based the pricing off of evening shows after 6pm. Continue reading

Top 10 Films Of 2012…So Far
