As we (Devan & Cary) mentioned in the ‘Celebrity Hot Tub’ – The Hollywood Foreign Press announced a bunch of rule changes for the Golden Globes yesterday. And the biggest one is they’re tweaking the guidelines to make sure dramas with comedic undertones still end up in the Best Drama category.
They decided to do it after “The Martian” ended up in the Best Comedy category this year and WON it. Everyone was confused, because it’s obviously a drama. And “Birdman” also got nominated as a comedy in 2014.
So the new rules should make sure it doesn’t happen again. And comedies also won’t slip into the Best Drama category by mistake.
