13 December 2016 - Golden Globes Nominations
Jeanette Settembre and Peter Sblendorio (New York Daily News, 12/12/2016)
Award season is officially underway with “Manchester by the Sea” making major waves.
The heart-wrenching film about love and loss proved to be one of the big winners of Monday’s Golden Globe nominations, earning nods in several categories including best drama film and best screenplay a day after Casey Affleck beat out Ryan Gosling for Best Actor at the Critics' Choice Awards.
Much of the movie’s success stems from the chilling performance by the 41-year-old younger brother of Ben Affleck. He nabbed the best actor Globe nomination again for his portrayal of Lee Chandler, a short-tempered recluse battling inner demons as he cares for his nephew after his brother's sudden death. The nod comes amid the renewed attention on a pair of 2010 civil lawsuits accusing the star of sexual harassment. Both were settled and ultimately dismissed.

But it was not a runaway. The lyrical “Moonlight,” about a young black man growing up in a poor Miami neighborhood, drew six nominations, including best drama, director and screenplay. “Manchester by the Sea,” focused on a New England plumber coping with horrific loss, was also nominated for best drama, receiving five nods total.
Joining those two films in the best drama category were “Lion,” an adoption tear-jerker set in India and the Weinstein Company’s lead Oscar hope; Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” based on the true story of the World War II hero Desmond T. Doss; and the CBS Films neo-western “Hell or High Water.”

Awards season broke into song over the last 24 hours, with musical La La Land winning big at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards and scoring the most nods (seven) during Monday’s Golden Globes nominations.
But Damien Chazelle’s new film wasn’t alone in standing tall during awards season’s nascent stages: Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight and Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea continued to hold firm as serious contenders, with Hacksaw Ridge, Lion, and more hanging strong. But what does it all mean? Nothing is certain since none of the actual groups that make up the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences have yet to weigh in – that will begin on Wednesday when the Screen Actors Guild, many of whom are also Academy members, gives us their nominees – but let’s muddle through what these early nominations and wins tell us about this year’s race.

With really good marketing and sheer force of will, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has, over the last decade, turned the Golden Globes from a scandal-riven booze fest into a highly rated, influential awards ceremony, a metamorphosis that has never been clearer than this year.
The diverse slate of film acting nominees it announced on Monday sent a clear, early message to Oscar voters dogged by the #OscarsSoWhite label: There can be no excuses this year.
Last year, when faced with criticism for yet another all-white slate of acting nominees, some members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences argued that there simply had been too few nonwhite choices.
