Globe Noms: “Selma” Roars Back

The civil-rights drama “Selma” hasn’t been getting much love so far in the pre-Oscar awards season. That changed today when the movie received Golden Globe noms for Best Picture/Drama, Best Actor (David Oyelowo), and Best Director (Ava Duvernay). “Birdman” got the most noms with 7, followed by “The Imitation Game” and “Boyhood” with five. At the Globes, “Birdman” will benefit from the fact that it’s in the comedy category, continuing the “Birdman” versus “Boyhood” narrative we’ve been seeing for weeks now. As for the television nominations, I’d be more pleased for Viola Davis’s nom if I could stand her show, “How to get away with murder.” “Fargo,” a TV show I can’t get into, led with seven noms.
