Golden Globes is Changing
The Golden Globes last year allowed The Martian to enter into the Best Musical or Comedy. Before Ridley Scott’s outer space drama The Wolf of Wall Street too got to enter the same category. Both should have specifically been competing for Best Drama. The Hollywood Reporter posted about the new guidelines that will be applied to the Golden Globes for next year: “Motion pictures shall be entered in the category that best matches the overall tone and content of the motion picture. Thus, for example, dramas with comedic overtones should be entered as dramas”. That definitely is a pointed comment toward The Martian. While this may make picking a winner harder, it is fairer to the actual films in their respective categories.
