Get Out Golden Globes

What began as an amusing piece of awards season news has blown into a much larger conversation. Jordan Peele‘s Get Out, one of the best and most financially successful movies of 2017, has been categorized as a comedy by Hollywood Foreign Press Association. That means that it will qualify in the “Best Comedy or Musical” category at next year’s Golden Globes, should it earn the nomination.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Thor Ragnarok Awards

We’re heading into the heart of awards season, that time of the year when studios will be releasing the movies that they hope will be nominated for plenty of awards in the coming months. Some will begin with a limited release before rolling out wide in the future, while others have already begun their limited release and are rolling out to more cities in the coming weeks. But there are some movies that were already released earlier this year and it’s time for studios to remind voters about in order to be considered for nominations.

Looking to compete against some of the more prestigious pictures that usually end up in the awards conversation, Disney and Marvel Studios are making a push for both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok awards nominations, and it’s not just in the technical categories like visual effects and make-up.
