After a blustery few days of torrential downpours, Hollywood appears ready for smooth sailing at the Academy Awards.
David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” has won the Screen Actors Guild award for outstanding cast, setting up the con-artist comedy as the film to beat at the Academy Awards.
“Gravity” soared with a record-setting seven Critics’ Choice Awards, but “12 Years a Slave” was named best picture.
The Academy Awards appear to be the three-horse race many expected it would be, with “Gravity,” ”American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave” all receiving a heap of nominations.
The Golden Globes are typically Hollywood’s bawdiest awards show — “a wonderful mess,” said co-host Tina Fey of this year’s bash. But in the end, after all the boozy banter — some of it bleeped for broadcast — the 1970s corruption tale “American Hustle” got a very serious push toward Oscar glory, picking up three major awards.
The nominees are in for the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards!
