In what is now a new and continuing tradition, the Golden Globe Awards have been revealed ahead of the Oscar nominations, which will be made public this Thursday. Of course, voting for the Oscar nominations was closed before the awards were revealed so don't think last night's wins will have any effect on the nominees. But this isn't an article designed to look at nominations, though we'll certainly get into a little of that. Instead we're looking at what chance last night's Globe winners have at winning the Oscar based on the recent Globe vs. Oscar history. This post serves as my ninth installment of my "Globes vs. Oscars" column (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014) and we'll take a look at the past 30 years of Golden Globe winner history compared to the Oscars and see where last night's winners may gain an edge and where they most likely won't and we'll begin with the lead acting categories. »

Paris — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are among the nearly 50 political figures who participated in France’s unity march staged Sunday in Paris. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is in India, and President Barack Obama did not attend.
Almost 3 million people peacefully demonstrated in Paris. Some were singing the National Anthem, the Marseillaise, others were shouting “I am Charlie,” “I am a Jew” and “I am a cop” to pay homage to the 17 people killed in the two terrorist attacks that hit satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket at Porte de Vincennes this week. About 3.7 million people marched across France on Sunday.

Top satirical cartoonists among 12 people shot dead in attack on French magazine.
French cinema industry guild L’Arp has condemned a terrorist attack on the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people were shot dead by two armed gunmen. At least four people were critically wounded in the attack.
“The cineastes of L’Arp learned with horror about the base attack on the newsroom of Charlie Hebdo and are wiped out by this inexplicable act,” the body said in a statement, just hours after the attack.
“They wish to express their full solidarity for the journalists and staff at Charlie Hebdo as well as their relatives and colleagues.
“Their historic bravery honours creation and freedom. Nothing, no threat or violent act, whatever the motive, whether it be political, religious or otherwise, will hinder the freedom of expression and freedom of creation.”
