  1. Why did you not put P.T. Anderson in Best Director for The Master? I think he's totally going to be there...

  2. Honestly, it might be a stretch for writing. Despite five Oscar nominations in his career, he has never been a Globes darling, receiving a total of zero nominations. There Will be Blood was nominated for Actor and Picture, but no PTA. I know that doesn't necessarily exclude him this time, but it makes me think that the HFPA doesn't love his style, which is understandable.

  3. I'm not really a fan either, but just to further clarify. It's chances at the Oscars have deminished either because of it's low box office revenues. I can see how that the Globes wouldn't like Anderson's style, because he has some strange films under his belt, good but still strange, like Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood and Punch-Drunk Love.
