Gurus Guesstimate Globes

A step sideways from the business of Oscar to what may come from the upcoming closed-bar rendition of the Golden Globes. The Gurus were gracious enough to dip, however momentarily, into the muddied waters of the HFPA’s annual shindig. Hoping to read the capricious minds of fewer than hundred semi-anonymous voters may be a perilous task (especially compared to the factors to weight from the ten thousand or so members of the industry who belong to the Academy). The choices by the Gurus suit the history of what the organization has bestowed in years past, leaving the likes of James Corden a mere “Golden Globe Nominee” for the resume. Sunday’s coming: we await the haphazard commentary of co-hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and to see whether Lin-Manuel Miranda takes center stage or if Glenn Close’s Meemaw can come from behind with homely mumble-puffs of wisdom and take the Gurus to task.

"With Toronto, Telluride, Ven­ice, New York and other key fests opening amid an overcrowded field that includes films postponed from 2020, the acclaim, buzz and dis­tinction festivals bestow on award contenders is more important than ever — especially for spec­tacles such as Dune, which lose impact on the small screen in hybrid streaming/theatrical releases. Yet the surging Delta variant now threatens to derail premieres, star appearances, in-person screenings and the press, the public’s and Oscar vot­ers’ willingness to attend them.

"On August 27, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sci­ences postponed all screenings and in-person events for 2021. And on August 30, despite the U.S. having around 60 times as many COVID-19 cases as Canada and a much lower vaccination rate over the previous four weeks, per Johns Hopkins University data, the U.S. State Dept. advised Americans to “reconsider travel to Canada due to [a high level of] COVID-19” there.

“There’s nothing conclu­sive right now, and everyone is not quite sure how to proceed because of the nature of the COVID pandemic,” says Sony Pic­tures Classics co-president Tom Bernard. “Telluride and Toronto have changed what they are going to do dramatically in the last few weeks, putting in a lot more proto­cols. The New York Film Festival is to be determined—what are they and AFI Fest going to do? Running a festival is like trying to [control] an oil tanker. You can’t just stop it, [and most events] don’t have festival insurance where you can say, ‘COVID shut us down, we gotta get paid.’ It brings up a lot of questions that are really difficult to answer.”

"It wasn’t supposed to be this way..."
