Indiewire’s Awards Editor Peter Knegt and TV Critic Ben Travers will
provide regular updates on the Golden Globe races leading up to the
ceremony on January 11, 2015.
Original and adapted merge into one at the Globes, meaning it’s all the tougher a race to predict. Only two films in the past six years — “It’s Complicated” and “The Ides of March” — have received nominations in this category at the Globes and then not gone on to get a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars, suggesting these five have great shots at doing so as well. And really, any of them could win here too. Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” is probably the least likely to succeed, though.
Wes Anderson & Hugo Guinness, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Alejandro González Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Armando Bo, “Birdman”
Gillian Flynn, “Gone Girl”
Richard Linklater, “Boyhood”
Graham Moore, “The Imitation Game”
Will Win: Wes Anderson & Hugo Guinness, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Could Win: Graham Moore, “The Imitation Game”
Should Win: Wes Anderson & Hugo Guinness, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Shoulda Been Here: Mike Leigh, “Mr. Turner”
