In what's so far been a refreshingly unpredictable race for Oscar's Best Picture trophy, a pair of clear-cut favorites appear to be emerging out of the fog.
It's a question that has been asked repeatedly online, and one we've fielded from friends and family members who've heard the buzz on the acclaimed new comedy “The Disaster Artist.”
With the Golden Globes, the unpredictability makes for a suspenseful, entertaining show. Here are this year's biggest surprises, from Sam Rockwell to Allison Janney.
The acclaimed musical La La Land was predicted to be an awards season juggernaut from the time it first hit the festival circuit in late-summer. Now you can take a inside look at how writer-director Damien Chazelle and company crafted the film’s stylish look in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video above. —Chazelle notes how they peppered lampposts throughout the movie to create a visual motif.
The banter between presenters at awards shows is, more often than not, awkward and terrible — unless one of those presenters is Kristen Wiig. At last night’s Golden Globes, Wiig and her co-presenter, Steve Carell, brought a moment of genuine hilarity to the teleprompter-dominated proceedings, swapping tragic “memories” of the first animated films they ever saw as kids.
Eight-year-old co-lead of nominee for Best Picture, Drama, makes the most of his segment, drawing new attention to the film
Hours before Meryl Streep delivered one of the buzziest awards-show speeches in years — taking President-elect Donald Trump to task for mocking a disabled reporter and embracing a controversial stance on immigration — attendees at Sunday’s Golden Globes were already singing her praises. “She might be the finest actress of all time,” Cuba Gooding Jr. (The People v. O.J. Simpson) said about Streep, who was on hand both as a nominee (for Florence Foster Jenkins) and as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lifetime-achievement honor.
When Ryan Gosling won the Golden Globe tonight, Eva Mendes was not in attendance. However, the La La Land star wanted to make sure his “sweetheart” knew how much he appreciated her.
The 2017 Golden Globes are airing this Jan. 8, and while longstanding favorites like Meryl Streep are awards-season veterans by now, there’s a whole crop of fresh faces losing their Golden Globe virginity on Sunday — 28 of them, to be precise. Among the freshmen is the unlikely Ryan Reynolds, nominated for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his turn as the foul-mouthed superhero in last year’s surprise hit Deadpool. Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton both received noms for the interracial marriage drama Loving.
All the way back in 1994, Hugh Grant took home a Golden Globe for Best Actor — Musical or Comedy for his performance as the befuddled bachelor in Four Weddings and a Funeral. As it happens, that was the last major award Grant would win in his career so far. Happily, Grant is in contention again this year at the Globes: He’s nominated for Best Actor — Musical or Comedy for Jenkins.
Meryl Streep will be honored with this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Among the highlights: In 2003, she won Best Supporting Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role in the ambitiously meta Charlie Kaufmann-Spike Jonze collaboration Adaptation. In 2010, she rang in the new decade with a win for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for Julie & Julia, in which she played the famed late television chef Julia Child.
This year’s Golden Globe nominees for Best Animated Feature include a Polynesian wayfinder, a two-stringed guitar player, a bunny cop, a singing koala bear and … a talking zucchini?

Nestled amid high-profile Hollywood nominees like Moana, Kubo and the Two Strings, Zootopia, and Sing is My Life as a Zucchini, a coming-of-age story about a young orphan by Swiss animator Claude Barras, making his feature film debut after a lengthy career helming cartoon shorts.
Ricky Gervais joked about it, Ridley Scott seemed mildly annoyed by it: “The Martian” was categorized as a comedy by the Golden Globes’ Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Trying to dominate the comedy category when you are really a drama afraid of dramatic competition is a punk move.
After Ricky Gervais tweaked the internet’s obsession with Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer’s budding friendship at the Golden Globes Sunday night, the two actresses took the stage and proved just why they’re such a dynamic duo. “Hello, I’m J. Law,” the Joy actress told the audience. When Lawrence told Schumer that, sorry, she can’t just give herself a nickname, Schumer was discouraged.

Michael Keaton delivered one of the night’s best speeches — if not the best speech — when he told a misty-eyed tale of his humble beginnings and ended by thanking his closest pal. “My best friend is kind, intelligent, funny, talented, considerate, thoughtful,” said Keaton, who won Best Actor, Comedy or Musical for Birdman. “He also happens to be my son, Sean,” Keaton added through tears as the cameras cut to his only child.

Updated Dec. 10, 2014 Awards season is in full effect, with film accolades being doled out on what seems like a daily (hourly?) basis.

UPDATE Jan. 16, 2014: Matthew McConaughey won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama and has been nominated for an Academy Award. Some have labeled Matthew McConaughey’s recent career winning streak “the McConaissance.” And he keeps on winning. The 44-year-old actor was nominated for his first Academy Award on Thursday for his role as a Texas man struggling with HIV-AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club." Add to this his first Golden Globe Award win for the same role and his small-but-memorable part as a greedy Wall Street mentor in "The Wolf of Wall Street," and McConaughey couldn’t get any hotter. Lest we forget, it wasn’t that long ago that McC was best known for his shirtless scenes in poorly-received romantic comedies, including the two in which he starred with Kate Hudson, “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and “Fools Gold.” But the actor, who first impressed audiences in 1993 as the skirt-chasing Wooderson in “Dazed and Confused,” says he made a conscious choice to turn a career corner.
