Awards Watch: Golden Globes '07

Wow, that was quick (and a bit inane ... what could be worse then film punditry from Billy Bush?) and even then they didn't announce all the Golden Globe winners on the air. Here's the rest:
  • Best Foreign Language Film: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
  • Best Screenplay: Joel Coen and Ethan Coen for No Country for Old Men
  • Best Original Score: Dario Marianelli for Atonement
  • Best Original Song: Eddie Vedder for "Guaranteed" from Into the Wild
No film won more then two awards, and a few major contenders (Juno, Michael Clayton) came up empty-handed in the end.

What does this all mean for the Big Show? Well, their Best Picture wins may help boost the chances of Atonement (which really needed this) and Sweeney Todd (although it didn't help Dreamgirls last year), but the film that could most benefit is Diving Bell, especially with the surprise Best Director win for Julian Schnabel. I tell you, I strongly expect it to be in the Oscars' top five come nomination morning.

In closing: wasn't it ironic that the first award given was to a movie titled I'm Not There?
