With the Christmas season soon to be over, the next big season for many including myself is… AWARDS SEASON!
The season has now officially kicked off as the major Hollywood presses have started their roundtables and the SAG and Golden Globe nominations have been announced; there are many impressive front-runners such as Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Tom Hanks. The Golden Globes are one of the most recognized awards and give recognition to both the people of film and television. However the biggest award that everyone (especially Leonardo DiCaprio) wants to receive is an Oscar. The nomination date for the Academy Awards is the 16th January 2014, and then the actual ceremony hosted by none other than Ellen DeGeneres will take place on the 2nd March. It has been delayed by a month because of the winter Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia.
Just like every other year the predictions will be hard to make, as it is anyone’s game but one thing that is guaranteed is that Meryl Streep will take home every single award possible for her role as a mother who is suffering from a drug addiction in the star studded August: Osage County, Julia Roberts and Ewan McGregor also star.
The two main front-runners are 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle both tied at 7 Golden Globe nominations each.
There will be plenty to report on as the season goes by, and we will see who comes out on top.
