Golden Globes Boost Chances for Oscar Noms for Jodie Foster, Andra Day, Rosamund Pike with Surprise Wins


The Golden Globes don’t predict the Oscars, but a surprise nomination won’t hurt three actresses previously not in the game.

Rosamund Pike won Best Actress, Comedy/Musical for the dour satire, “I Care a Lot.” That puts her into the Best Actress category for the Oscars with Frances McDormand, Viola Davis, Carey Mulligan and another surprise winner tonight, Andra Day.

Day won Best Actress, Drama for “The United States vs, Billie Holiday.” Day now jumps into the Oscar Best Actress category as stated above. She gives an Oscar winning performance.

Jodie Foster jumps into the running for Best Supporting Actress for her Globes win in that category for “The Mauritanian.” That win was really a shock, not just to us but to Jodie, who accepted in her pajamas.

Frances McDormand may have lost herself the Oscar tonight for “Nomadland.”  She didn’t even participate. Unless she’s  ill– and I certainly hope she ‘s not– that was just rude, plain rude. (Unless, of course, she’d been tipped in advance that she wasn’t winning.)

The male actors awards, to Chadwick Boseman, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Daniel Kaluuya, were spot on.
