American Hustle Deemed Comedy at Globes

They were pushing for a drama nomination, but Sony will have to settle for breaking into the Comedy/Musical category at the Globes. Word on the street is that people expect it to score a lot of nods at the Oscars, but it may not be deep enough, too entertaining, for any wins. But moving to Comedy might help them at the Globes, and give them some nice nominations, and maybe even a few wins if it plays it right, and it will be a big moment in the Oscar haul. And I think that entertaining + David O. Russell + that cast could still equal some Oscar glory, especially compared to the heavy-handed frontrunners 12 Years a Slave and Gravity. That being said I see Best Picture - Comedy/Musical, Actress, Actor, and probably both supporting, and never discount directing/writing either. I still think American Hustle is a player, and I wouldn't count it out just yet.

  1. It is looking like the Comedy category will be more interesting than the Drama category for the first time in who knows how long.
