I was finally reading the Golden Globe award noms last night and my boyfriend and I were shocked that neither the Great Gatsby nor the Book Thief were nominated for best picture and Gatsby for nothing? Did I read that correctly?Wow!
I told my boyfriend that Gatsby sadly had no chance since it came out in May and thus forgotten, but the Book Thief just came out in late fall. Both of those films were great.
This year our favorites were: The Great Gatsby, Captain Phillips, The Book Thief, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Any film that leaves you thinking about it for days and also disturbs you and your sleep is surely worth a nod, right?
Makes me sad that a high concept film like Gravity which was entertaining but didn’t have anything great to say and the story was just meh, gets noms and Gatsby one of the greatest stories ever written was dismissed? What is going on?
Sad.. well they get my vote! And Leonardo should have been nominated for both his performances in Gatsby and the Wolf of Wall Street. Sorry Leo-have no idea what is going on. Maybe Oscar? Here is hoping!
