Golden Globe Nominations 2015

It’s getting to that time of year when all the more serious films come out ready for awards season, well the Golden Globe nominations for 2015 are out. Having a look at the lists only about half of the films have hit the cinema in the UK so far. But I have seen quite a few of the trailers for the other films as well. So at least it gives an idea of which ones to look out for and head to see. Usually these are pretty good predictors for who will be nominated at the Oscars as well.

The Golden Globes are usually good to watch and more relaxed than the Academy Awards. Probably a few surprises in these nominations and some quite big films missing out!

I have decided to put a * next to the films I have already seen!

Best Motion Picture – Drama
Boyhood*
Foxcatcher
The Imitation Game*
Selma
The Theory of Everything
