Joker Wins Two at the Golden Globes as the Film’s Composer Hildur Guðnadóttir Makes History

Joker

It was a good night for Joker at last night’s Golden Globes. The controversial film won two awards by evening’s end.

Hildur Guðnadóttir won for “Best Original Score” making history. The composer is the first solo woman to win a Golden Globe in the category. Lisa Gerrard was a co-winner with Hans Zimmer for Gladiator in 2000 and Karen O was the last woman to be nominated, shared with Carter Burwell, in 2009 for Where the Wild Things Are.

Guðnadóttir is bringing in the awards. She won an Emmy for scoring Chernobyl and she’s nominated for a Grammy. She’s also nominated for both Joker and Chernobyl at the Society of Composers and Lyricists’ awards, happening Tuesday night at the Skirball Center.

Director Todd Phillips discovered her music in Sicario: Day of the Soldado and sought her out for his film. Phillips provided her with the script and had her “take it from there.” The score was played on set so reactions to the music are in real-time.

Joaquin Phoenix also walked away a winner for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama” for his leading role in the film.

The film also lost in two categories. The movie lost to 1917 for “Best Motion Picture – Drama” and Todd Phillips lost to Sam Menders for “Best Director – Motion Picture.”

The controversial film with just a $55 million budget has gone on to earn over $1 billion making it one of the most profitable films ever.

Joker Nominated for 4 Golden Globes, Watchmen Snubbed

Joker

Today, the nominees for the 77th Golden Globes were announced. Joker was nominated for four awards including “Best Motion Picture,” “Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama,” “Best Director – Motion Picture,” and “Best Original Score – Motion Picture.”

Joker crossed the billion-dollar mark in the last few weeks and the controversial film is one of the most profitable in history.

Watchmen, an expansion of the heralded comic, was snubbed in this year’s awards. The show which focuses on the generational trauma of an African-American family was one of the highest profile snubs, especially due to its praise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Wins Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globes While Black Panther is Shut Out

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

It was a golden night for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which won a Golden Globe for “Best Animated Feature.”

The film has been widely praised by both critics and fans since its release. Its competition included Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Isle of Dogs, and Mirai.

Comic creators Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Brian Michael Bendis, and Sara Pichelli were all acknowledged in the win.

This is only the third time since the category was introduced in 2007 that it wasn’t won by a film from Disney or Pixar.

The $90 million budgeted film has earned $133.9 million domestically and $141.5 million from the foreign box office. It’s a front-runner to win the same award at the Oscars and both awards should boost the film’s earnings. The nomination voting for the Oscars begins today.

Black Panther was also nominated for three awards, “Best Motion Picture,” “Best Original Score in a Motion Picture,” and “Best Original Song in a Motion Picture.” It was shut out in each category.

Check out video from the show below:

Deadpool Gets Two Golden Globe Nominations & Wins Critic Choice Awards

deadpool posterDeadpool… award nominated (and winning) film!? One of the most profitable (and successful) films, comic or otherwise, of the year has been nominated for two Golden Globes which were announced today.

The film was nominated for “Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy” and actor Ryan Reynolds was nominated for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy” for his portrayal as the main character.

The movies has been well received and it won at last night’s Critics Choice Awards for “Best Comedy.” The film lost to Hacksaw Ridge for “Best Action Movie.” Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange were both nominated in that category. Ryan Reynolds also scored with “Best Actor in a Comedy” for the film. We’ll have more coverage of the Critics Choice Awards later today.

When it comes to television, comic shows were shut out. Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and The Walking Dead (and more) were all skipped for this year’s nominations.

Actors who have been comic adaptations ruled the show. Ruth Negga (Tulip on Preacher), Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), Viggo Mortensen (A History of Violence), and Donald Glover (the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming) were all nominated showing off the talent attracted to blockbuster live action comic adaptations.
