Marie Claire's resident film expert and reviewer James Mottram delivers his verdict on this year's Golden Globes...
Best Picture (Drama) - Boyhood
'It’s the critics’ film of the year and for once everyone loves it'
Best Picture (Musical/Comedy) – Birdman
'It simply destroys all others in this category. Only The Grand Budapest Hotel comes even vaguely close to achieving what Birdman manages'
Best Actor (Drama) – Eddie Redmayne / The Theory of Everything
'A tough one to call but Redmayne ticks all the boxes in a remarkably transformative performance.'
Best Actress (Drama) – Rosamund Pike / Gone Girl
'Pike deserves it for a high-wire act, playing a tricky character'
Best Actor (Musical/Comedy) – Michael Keaton / Birdman
'Keaton’s Phoenix-like rise from the ashes, the mirror opposite of his character, means he’s a dead cert for this.'
Best Actress (Musical/Comedy) – Emily Blunt / Into The Woods
'Blunt is a revelation in this musical; it’s her best work in Hollywood to date.'
Best Supporting Actor – Edward Norton / Birdman
'Playing a preening stage actor, it’s Norton’s best work in years. JK Simmons from Whiplash might sneak it, though.'
Best Supporting Actress – Emma Stone / Birdman
'Not an easy category to predict, but Stone just about edges out Knightley and Chastain.'
Best Screenplay – Birdman
'Sharp-tongued and savvy, screenplays don’t get more acerbic than this.'
Best Director – Richard Linklater, Boyhood
'Twelve years making Boyhood – that deserves every award going.'
Best animation – The Lego Movie
'Witty, sharp, fun – it’s by far the best animated movie of 2014.'
See all the Golden Globe 2015 nominations.
