Golden Globes 2014: Which Film Will Win Big At The Oscars?


Matthew McConaughey won the best actor in a drama at the Golden Globes last night for Dallas Buyer’s Club.

The 44-year-old Texan’s speech was adorable and McConaughey-ish (just the opening where he says: ”Alright, alright, alriiiiight” is worth a couple of plays) and of course the award was richly deserved.

I usually care more about who wore what, who was spangled on cocaine, who was plastered on booze and who shagged whom after the after-parties than who won what at these things.

But with Jared Leto taking home best supporting actor for Dallas Buyer’s Club, 12 Years A Slave winning best film, plus a smattering of gongs going to American Hustle, this year’s going to be a very tight race to the Oscars. (As tight as Leto’s willy once was in Lilo’s flange one might say, or as wide open as her legs).

12 Years a slave

No doubt Brad Pitt’s busy shaving Angelina Jolie’s right leg for her and picking her out several slit-to-the-I-can-see-what-you-had-for-breakfast gowns so they can give 12 Years A Slave a much-needed campaigning push to win big in March as we speak. 

Which trump card do you think they’ll pick to give the Plan B Productions project a Brand Brangelina shot in the arm? – marriage, adoption or a biological pregnancy?

They’ve been saving them up haven’t they?

Watch Matthew’s acceptance speech below – the full list of last night’s winners follows that –  then let me know which film you think will win ‘best picture’ at the Oscars. I’m throwing my hat into the ring and going with Dallas Buyer’s Club.

    Will NEVER be able to take Leo seriously again after he pronounced ‘Philomena’ as ‘Philomania’…we may need to have a Boho for Worst Literacy Skills…?

  2. Jocelyn says:

    If the Globes proved one thing – it was that there’s not one clear winner this year. There were so many great movies, and the Globes showed that. The awards were all over the place

  3. DD says:

    It’s hard to know for sure. I hope that Leo finally wins an Oscar!

  4. Jodie says:

    Elizabeth Moss was amazing in Top of the Lake. She is very cool.

  5. Niamho says:

    I haven’t seen any of these movies yet (see: “kids, resulting chaos”). BUT Oscars aside, big yayy for Brooklyn Nine Nine which is making me chuckle the last few weeks. There’s some bitching going on about their 2 wins, but FFS these comedies are always overlooked. And it’s bloody funny. The Simpsons has NEVER won a Globe.

  6. Niamho says:

    Also, how charming was that scruff-bag Alex Ebert who won best score? He said to the director: “Even the most deft pen is a clumsy tool and yet we still try for magic. Thanks for letting me try — all over your movie”.
    nicely put!
    But: Him and Diddy getting the ‘ooooohhh, youre the dude from that yacht party’. Jaysus.
