The absence of Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels' The Butler) from the Golden Globe nominations is as significant as is the love for the film overall from the Screen Actors Guild, which is to say I think the two cancel each other out. Winfrey is getting an Oscar nomination, you can count on that, but I think the recent nominations further my expectation Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) is going to win this race.
The most significant note to take away from the SAG and Globe noms, however, is the fact Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) didn't receive a single nomination from either organization as it's quite clear August: Osage County is getting more love at the moment than any other Weinstein title out there right now.
