Home Uncategorized Golden Globes 2014 Nominees: Oprah Snubbed for “Butler” Performance

The Golden Globes just snubbed Oprah Winfrey for her outstanding performance in”The Butler.” In fact, they snubbed the entire movie, as well as “Fruitvale Station.” They did acknowledge “12 Years a Slave,” “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “Philomena and “Rush” in drama, and “American Hustle,” “Wolf of Wall street,” “Her,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and “Nebraska” as the best comedies. None of them are comedies.

Even more bizarre: they snubbed Woody Allen, to whom they are giving a Lifetime Achievement Award. I told you this would happen months ago. If Woody wasn’t coming to get his award, he’d get very little for “Blue Jasmine.” So no Best Director, Picture, or Screenplay. Just actress (Blanchett) and supporting actress (Sally Hawkins).

One nomination that is spot on: Oscar Isaac in “Inside Llewyn Davis.” But they missed James Gandolfini in “Enough Said.” And the movie itself, which IS a COMEDY.

  1. First of all, Hollywood is a joke growing more a parody of itself with every new movie. With very few exceptions, creativity is dead.
    Second, I am pleased to see Oprah snubbed as the Butler was mostly fiction and needlessly divisive and, we are getting tired of revisionist ‘history.’
    Lastly, I am done watching all award shows…baseless for the aforementioned reasons and extremely boring.

  2. I don’t understand how Oprah or Woody Allen were “snubbed”
    You are either nominated or not. It is not a given that Oprah or Woody Allen have to be nominated.
    The Butler did poorly at the theaters.

  3. People say there is a RACE problem. People say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY and ONLY into White countries.

    People say the only solution to the RACE problem is if ALL and ONLY White countries “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against White people, Anti-Whites agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  4. I have never gotten Cate Blanchett. Every movie I have ever seen her in were yawners. Guess you have to know the right people in Hollywood. That’s why Tom Hanks gets all the good roles.

  5. Regarding leaving out The Butler and it’s actors for any award nominations, it is entirely appropriate in my opinion. The movies was a fictitious story portrayed as being based on the actual WH butler. So little of the movie had any basis in reality, the movie was nothing more than a deliberately dishonest revisionist social commentary.

  6. I sort of wonder if the Oprah snub is a sideways swipe at Obama, since she is such a big supporter of his? Maybe this is the film industry’s way of expressing their displeasure about how the administration has handled the NSA and health care debacles?

  7. Have to say Oprah doesn’t deserve a nod for her performance. It was, at best, good but not outstanding warranting a nomination. If anyone deserves credit it would be Forrest Whitaker. A solid movie but nothing outstanding IMHO.

What do you think?
