What a year it has been in tinsel town ladies and gentlemen! We had a fairly quiet start to 2023, but the action turned the volume up during the spring when the writers strike went into affect in May. That definitely shook things up a bit as television shows and movies that were in the process of filming were suddenly operating without, well, writers. Then around late June/July, rumblings of SAG-AFTRA joining the writers on strike began making its way out. Sure enough, on July 14, SAG joined the writers on strike, making it the first time both unions were striking at the same time in decades. Things were in limbo for several months until the writers got their deal in October. However, at the beginning of November, it was looking quite bleak in terms of the SAG strike ending before the Thanksgiving holiday (which in turn would have probably meant no award shows would be happening at all), but SAG got their deal on November 9th, and we get to have a 2024 Golden Globe Awards on time. With that in mind, (and nominations set to come out next week), we're dropping our definitive Golden Globes predictions for 2024.
From the 'Barbenheimer' extravaganza of the blockbuster summer season, to Paul Giamatti's astounding performance in The Holdovers (can we give Mr. Giamatti a lifetime achievement award of some kind?), there's much to look forward to at the 2024 awards, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, January 7. The nominations for next year (or next month—however you want to look at it) are set to be officially announced on December 12th, but because we're self-proclaimed film and television critics who absolutely feel we're qualified enough to voice our opinion, we're getting ahead of the game.
