2021 GOLDEN GLOBE PREDICTIONS:

BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE

UPDATED: Jan. 3, 2021

AWARDS COMMENTARY:

With news that Stanley Tucci has been moved out of this category by the HFPA and the men from “One Night in Miami” going the supporting route after the Globes forced them to stay together, this category could take a very different shape then what could ultimately end up happening with the Academy. For instance, we could find Kingsley Ben-Adir join his co-star Leslie Odom, Jr as a fellow nominee. The HFPA has had trouble in the past building a consensus around a large ensemble (an example being the shutout of all the actors from “Spotlight”). With Sacha Baron Cohen assured a nomination (perhaps a win?) for “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” will they pass on him in this space? As a matter of fact, how many double (even potential triple) nominees will the HFPA have? Will they feel compelled to spread the love? Feb. 3 will tell.

Milos Forman’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and Alan Parker’s “Midnight Express” is next in line with six each. Robert Altman’s “Nashville” has the record for most nominations received by a film with 11 while Colin Higgins’ “Foul Play,” Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather Part III” and Mike Nichols’ “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” share the record for receiving the most nominations and not winning a single award at seven.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
