Since the Oscar ballots were already turned in, the Golden Globes have very little bearing on who will get nominated this Thursday when the nominees are announced, but what the Globes do is potentially shift the Academy into picking different winners based on their speeches and likability throughout the night. It also solidifies certain momentum, say the supporting categories in which J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) are almost guaranteed their Oscar wins. On top of that, “Boyhood” takes a distinct lead against “Birdman” in the Oscar race, winning its Drama category while the comedy category had one of the most phenomenal upsets of the night, giving the win to Wes Anderson and “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a much deserved win but still skewing the neck and neck “Boyhood” and “Birdman” race.

Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”) also continues with immense trajectory into her Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar and the Best Actor in a Leading Role category is now possibly narrowing in on either Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) or Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory Of Everything”). Amy Adams (“Big Eyes”) definitely had the love of the Hollywood Foreign Press and most years the Academy follows along with that love, so this win for her could mean there is still enough support for his to clinch the fifth Actress spot, something I feel is probably pretty likely. No real love for “Selma” besides a win in Best Original Song, which may also translate into a nomination and win at the Oscars. Also, expect Johann Johannsson to at least get a nomination for his Best Original Score in “The Theory Of Everything”. In the animated category, I do expect “The Lego Movie” to receive more love than “How To Train Your Dragon 2” and in the foreign category, “Ida” could come in with more heat than “Leviathan” despite a win for the latter tonight.
