Cinema: the Golden Globes are feminized, forget the best and offer a boulevard to platforms

Maintained despite the cataclysmic year known by the film industry, the famous award ceremony revealed its nominees from the big screen, with more female directors than usual, four French people and notable absences.

First warning shot of a awards season (in French, we will say “The season of golden trinkets”) jostled in its usual and particular calendar, necessarily special. The nominations for the Golden Globes ceremony are known – the ceremony on February 28, broadcast in France on Canal +, will be hosted by the very established duo that already formed in previous editions the scathing Amy Poelher and Tina Fey. Unsurprisingly, in view of the essentially suspended news from cinemas, Amazon platforms (Borat 2, One Night in Miami…) and Netflix (from Mank of Chicago Seven and at Lady’s game, and even Emily in Paris) monopolized most of the prime seats there, submitted to the vote of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. It is also the first time that three women have been among the nominees in the “Best Direction” category: Chloe Zhao for Nomadland (favorite, like David Fincher and his Mank), Regina King for One Night in Miami and Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman.

Our cinema of the year review

In registers that could not be more dissimilar, two others constitute the most deplorable absences of the guests at the party, although authors of two of the very great works crossed on a 2020 screen: Kelly Reichardt for her sublime First Cow, and Michaela Coel as performer and creator of the furious I May Destroy You, the great series of the past year. The most cocoricocardiers spirits will prefer to note the presence in the running of a motley skewer of French: the actor Tahar Rahim as interpreter of Designated Guilty, the composer Alexandre Desplat (Midnight in the universe by George Clooney), Florian Zeller in the screenplay of The Father, and the melody Of them by Filippo Meneghetti for the title of best foreign language film. The latter was also appointed to represent France at the Academy of Oscars, whose nominations are not expected until mid-March, and the ceremony at the end of April.
