2014 awards season kicks off January 12 with Golden Globes

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Two weeks into the New Year, starting January 14 with the Golden Globes, we'll be hearing acceptance speeches by Hollywood's finest.

Repeat co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will provide another round of witty banter and a biting monologue (they left Kathyrn Bigelow gasping last year) when they emcee the big bash, honoring both film and television work of the past twelve months. Among the batch of nominees are Oscar frontrunners Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey, who play a Transgender woman and a homephobe dying of AIDS, respectively, in Dallas Buyers Club, also in the running for Best Motion Picture-Drama. Leto competes with Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Daniel Bruhl (Rush), Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) and Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave). McConaughey faces off with Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) and Robert Redford (All is Lost). Leto and McConaughey are expected to nab Oscar nominations.

Behind the Candelabra, HBO's fascinating biopic on Liberace, will likely and deservedly win for Best TV Movie or Mini-Series and Best Actor in a TV Movie or Mini-Series. Lead stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are both nominated in the same category, but as was the case at last fall's Emmy Awards, the former veteran actor is expected to triumph. Rob Lowe earned a Supporting Actor nod for his portrayal of a messed-up plastic surgeon in the production.

The Golden Globes, handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (international journalists), routinely shine light on the newer crop of TV shows, reflected this time around with the inclusion of Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Masters of Sex. But established series, from Breaking Bad to Modern Family to Downton Abbey to Veep, also made the cut.

The 19th Annual Critics' Choice Awards, taking place January 16, are significant because it's a collective assembly of film critics from around the country who cast their votes for cinema's creme de la creme. 10 movies were shortlisted for Best Picture, while acting categories feature 6 nominees each, one more than the Oscars. Unique, as well, about these awards is a category that acknowledges the talent of younger performers, such as Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game), Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color), Liam James (The Way Way Back), Sophie Nelisse (The Book Thief) and Tye Sheridan (Mud).

The Screen Actors Guild Awards also fete movies and television, but with a more sedated affair than the glittery Golden Globes. Many of the same films, TV programs and actors recognized by other award groups are vying for SAGs, too, given out by thousands of union-represented actors in the U.S., although a few - Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels' The Butler), Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad), Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory) - were singled out for their roles. The SAGs are scheduled for January 18.

Switching gears, the Grammys are set for January 26 at LA's Staples Center. Daft Punk will make a rare live appearance on the telecast, surely to perform 'Get Lucky.' Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Pink with Nate Ruess, and an all-star ensemble of honkey tonk cowboys - Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Blake Shelton - are the first round of performers announced for the main ceremony. It's expected, but not confirmed, that 7-time nominees Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will take the stage, as will Taylor Swift, Lorde and Bruno Mars. I'll have a special Grammy preview in our January 24 edition with predictions and picks for the top awards, and a full list of performers.

Finally, the grand daddy of all awards, the Oscars, are pushed back this year to March 2, due mainly to avoid competition with the Winter Olympics. Nominations, however, for the most prestigious awards in film will be announced on January 16. Ballots have already been sent out to its 5,000-plus membership, so there's a strong chance that Academy members like Jack Nicholson, Steven Spielberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Joseph Gordon-Leavitt and Jennifer Aniston are watching DVD screeners as we speak to vote for their choices.

If this isn't enough, the People's Choice Awards are happening January 8, the BAFTA's (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) are taking place February 16 and the Independent Spirit Awards are set for March 1.
