Golden Globes nominations: Indie year?


by Fab Poller

Nominations for the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards have been unveiled and seem to confirm a nod towards Indie features win which could also lead to a more diverse and interesting oscars ceremony early next year.

Features such as “Moonlight” and “La La Land” came out as the best potential picture frontrunners (as well as the overall nominations leaders with six and seven notices, respectively). gg-3-tt-width-604-height-403-crop-0-bgcolor-000000-lazyload-0

Another good news: new participants to the American awards game such as Isabelle huppert (huppert has never received a nomination despite her impressive filmography, international collaborations and reputation as one of the most appealing  actress of her generation), Ruth Mega or  Mahershala Ali (House of cards, Hunger Games, Free state of jones)

If anything it is an indication of a taste, this season, for more complex and challenging performances on HFPA’s part.
