Golden Globes Go Heavy on Adaptation Nominations in TV but Not Film

Golden Globes Go Heavy on Adaptation Nominations in TV but Not Film
In a world of 500 scripted television series, one way creators are vying for the very limited attention of the audience — and to attract big-name talent — is by adapting already well-known works. Rather than having to start from the ground up when it comes to building the world, creating its characters and hooking viewers, adaptations come with a lot of the work already done. And with less risk, the rewards that are reaped automatically look that much bigger.

“It’s a massive draw because you have so much more information than you do when you just have a pilot script or a couple of episodes or even a full season. With the book, the format is so totally different [and] you have the ability to describe and develop and have so much character backstory, so it’s rife with things to help you bring these characters to life and tell the story really thoroughly,” says [link=nm

Get Ready For Another Mystery - The Sinner Is Probably Coming Back For Season 2

This week's Golden Globe nominations yielded quite a few twists, and The Sinner's surprise nominations are no exception. Not only did the surprisingly fresh murder mystery earn a slot in the best limited series category, but Jessica Biel also earned a best actress nod. No one was more surprised than Biel herself, who shared her thoughts in a postnominations interview with Entertainment Weekly. "I"m thrilled," she said. "I don't know what else to say. I'm proud of it." In terms of the Golden Globes, The Sinner faces stiff competition. The series sidles up with Big Little Lies, Fargo, Feud: Bette and Joan, and Top of the Lake: China Girl. Biel is nominated alongside Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, Nicole Kidman, and Reese Witherspoon. And while the prospects for a win may not be great (Big Little Lies already swept at the Emmys), the benchmark means something else exciting for

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.

Golden Globes Nominations: At Least It Was a Good Year for Strong Female Roles

Golden Globes Nominations: At Least It Was a Good Year for Strong Female Roles
Looking across the Golden Globe film and TV nominations, it’s a banner year for movies driven by some of the most unlikely female characters to get the big-screen treatment.

In “The Shape of Water,” Sallie Hawkins plays a mute cleaning woman in 1962 Baltimore who has an supernatural encounter. In “The Post,” Meryl Streep plays a woman in her mid-50s who is thrust by circumstance into a leadership role. Margot Robbie and Allison Janney deliver tour de force performances in “I, Tonya,” a movie that on paper sounds like B-grade cable material. And the great Laurie Metcalf is the hero of “Lady Bird” and its touching look at mother-daughter and familial dynamics, for which Saorise Ronan received a best actress, comedy nom.

None of these are projects tailored to the conventional notions of the audiences who drive movie-going or indie film success. The shutout of female directors from the Globes race is particularly striking this year

Golden Globe Nominations Are In, and Once Again Women Directors Are Shut Out

Lady Bird capturing our feelings well (“Lady Bird”)

Lady Bird” is officially the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes. The coming-of-age dramedy has been scoring award after award, giving many hope that writer-director Greta Gerwig would be a shoo-in come Golden Globe and Oscar time. Well, Golden Globe nominations are in, and Gerwig scored a nod for Best Screenplay and “Lady Bird” is up for Best Picture — Comedy or Musical, but once again the Best Director category is composed entirely of men. No Gerwig. No Dee Rees for “Mudbound.” No Patty Jenkins for “Wonder Woman.”

Fortunately, female filmmakers fared better in the Best Animated Film category, which is noteworthy because women are especially underrepresented in that field. Two of five films in the running are women-directed or co-directed: Nora Twomey’s “The Breadwinner,” the story of a girl who cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy so she

‘Big Little Lies’ May No Longer Be a Limited Series, But It Can Still Get Away With Competing As One — For Now

‘Big Little Lies’ May No Longer Be a Limited Series, But It Can Still Get Away With Competing As One — For Now
This may be the biggest little lie of “Big Little Lies.” The show won eight Emmys this September, and now dominated this year’s Golden Globes TV nominations — but as a limited series. Now, with a second season on the horizon, “Big Little Lies” faces a category conundrum.

HBO said it hasn’t yet determined whether “Big Little Lies” will continue to be produced as a limited series, or if it will graduate to full drama series status. Much of that decision will now come down to episodic order, per TV Academy rules.

The org, which generally sets the standard that other awards shows then follow, classifies a “limited series” as “programs of two or more episodes with a total running time of at least 150 program minutes that tell a complete, non-recurring story, and do not have an ongoing storyline and/or main characters in subsequent seasons.”

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through
Every awards group has their trademark quirks, and the HFPA loves nothing more than anointing the wunderkinds. And this year didn’t disappoint: On the TV side, voters embraced Showtime’s “Smilf” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”; in film, breakouts included Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, and Timothée Chalamet.

Several others across film and TV were also rewarded for their work with their first-ever Golden Globes nominations.

Movies:

Out of both actress categories, there was one sole new nominee: Margot Robbie landed her first nod in the musical or comedy field for her heralded turn as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” She’s up against previous winners Judi Dench (“Victoria & Abdul”), Helen Mirren (“The Leisure Seeker”) and Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes”) and previous nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird.”) The actress in a drama category is all previous Globe winners: Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), [link

Golden Globes 2018 Predictions: 10 Nominations We Want to See
When it comes to predicting Emmy or Oscar nominations, there is a method to the madness.

But the Golden Globe nominations -- split into a bajillion categories and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's love of all things new and/or A-list -- it is just madness. Which means, until the 2018 Golden Globe noms are announced on Monday at 5:00a.m. Pt, this could be anybody's year.

1. Wonder Woman: Warner Bros. may have launched an awards season campaign with their eye on the Oscars, but...C'mon. We all loved Wonder Woman, but no one really thinks it will be nominated for Best Picture, right? The Globes seem much more attainable. Yet even with the comedy and drama categories split, Wonder Woman still feels like a longshot for Best Motion Picture, Drama, as does Patty Jenkins for Best Director. But perhaps [link=nm

TV Review – The Sinner

Liam Hoofe reviews The Sinner

American audiences will already be very acquainted with The Sinner. The show, adapted from the novel of the same name by Petra Hammesfahr, was a ratings success on the USA Network, and as a result has been streamed internationally by Netflix, with the full season hitting our shores last week. And, having binged watched the whole show in a little over 24 hours, it’s easy to see why.

The Sinner is not your conventional murder mystery. It strays away from the conventional whodunnit? narrative, instead, asking, why do it? The show had me hooked from the first episode, and chances are if you don’t engage with that opening 35 minutes, then there is no point in watching the rest.

The set up is simple, yet effective. Cora Tannetti is a married mother with one son. One day, at the beach, she is aggravated by a
