Brokeback Mountain is the early favorite for nominations in the Oscars race, dominates in Golden Globe nominations, and is the darling of critics. Brokeback Mountain looks like the film to beat.

With the bulk of the critics awards and Golden Globe noms behind us, the SAG and guilds noms are next up. Check out my 2005 awards season schedule for details (and the LA Times schedule too).

Brokeback Mountain launched right in the heart of that first big window of heavy activity/publicity, platforming in three cities on December 9, and expanding in the wake of the first awards rounds on December 16. It continued to expand through the Oscars nomination and final balloting, providing maximum credibility and publicity as Brokeback Mountain cracked the Red States.

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN: BEST DRAMATIC FILM – BEST DIRECTOR
BEST SCREENPLAY – BEST SONG

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association hosted its 63rd annual Golden Globe awards ceremony on January 16. 'Brokeback Mountain' walked away with four important wins.

Brokeback Mountain dominated the Golden Globe noms with seven: nominations for everybody except Jake Gyllenhaal (ouch!). The next most nominated film was Good Night, Good Luck with only four. Interestingly, most of the big-contender films snubbed.
