Emily Blunt (Into The Woods) – Best Actress In A Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
No stranger to Meryl Streep’s witchy ways, Emily Blunt’s first breakout performance came in 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada. Now she’s putting her vocal chops to the test and wowing audiences as The Baker’s Wife in the movie musical Into the Woods. This is her fifth Golden Globe nomination; she previously won for her performance in Gideon’s Daughter.
Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel) – Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Monsieur Gustave H., the legendary concierge who chaperoned The Grand Budapest Hotel through her glory days of the 1930s, is Wes Anderson’s homage to the Austrian novelist Stefan Zweig. But it’s Ralph Fiennes’ quirky, confident performance that brings the role – and the film – to life. This is Fiennes’ fourth Golden Globe nomination, and one of four for the film.
Into The Woods – Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Be careful what you wish for… All fairy tales have morals to help set you on the right path. The genius of James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece comes from its ability to make you stop and question not only the path…but why you want to walk it in the first place. Into the Woods picked up three Golden Globe nominations.
Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) – Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
From Bond Girl (she made her debut in 2002’s Die Another Day) to Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike has been one of the big stories of this emerging awards season, having already racked up 14 critical awards around the country. Will she add a 15th to the mantle on Sunday? This is her first Golden Globe nomination.
Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) – Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama
Many of us first met Tony-winner Eddie Redmayne in the big screen adaptation of Les Misérables, but it’s his brave, heartbreaking performance as Stephen Hawking in this year’s The Theory of Everything that’s likely to define his early film career. This is his first Golden Globe nomination.
