While last night’s Golden Globes unequivocally belonged to La La Land, it started out with one of the biggest shocks of this awards season: Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals. Does this surprise upset mean the British thespian is gearing up for winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars?
It’s important to first note that even Taylor-Johnson’s Golden Globes nomination wasn’t expected by most awards season prognosticators and, if someone from Tom Ford’s latest flick were to have a shot at the trophy, their money was placed on co-star Michael Shannon. And when it came to winning most had their money on Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Dev Patel (Lion), or even Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins) — not Taylor-Johnson. »

We've been name dropping Postcards from the Edge a lot this past week, for obvious reasons. I caught the last half hour on accident on television tonight and every split second of it remains marvelous. By the time we get to Suzanne (Streep) reconciling with the director (Gene Hackman) whose film she nearly sabotaged, I am a mess of emotions. It's literally one of my single favorite scenes in all of cinema - so simply staged, so unfussily played by two of the best screen actors of all time, and deeply resonant every time.
Postcards is known for its endless wit but here's something that's less often discussed: even when it's not trying to be funny, it's a total winner. It's a wise compassionate movie, constantly reminding us to go a little easier on ourselves and each other.
