Award season is setting in and it’s time to pick the frontrunners for the Golden Globes’ best picture nominees. Variety editors Jenelle Riley and Clayton Davis surveyed the contenders for Awards Circuit, presented by HBO, selecting who will go home with the globe and who is disqualified, critically acclaimed Lee Isaac Chung’s drama “Minari” is ineligible!
Beginning with drama, Riley and Davis began with the assessment of Frances McDormand-starring “Nomadland,” star-studded “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and Netflix’s “Mank.”
“Who doesn’t love a story about Hollywood? Well, Hollywood certainly does,” Riley said. And that’s no surprise the members of the award elite love to throw statues at Hollywood-centric storylines such as “La La Land,” “The Artist,” and “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”
Other possible surprises? Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods,” Regina King’s “One Night in Miami,” Florian Zeller’s “The Father,” Emerald Fennell’s “Promising Young Woman,” Darius Marder’s “Sound of Metal” and Shaka King’s “Judas and the Black Messiah.”
