Reactions:

Despite being nominated for two Golden Globes, Scarlett Johansson went home empty handed. This is probably explainable by vote splitting. Those that voted for her as Best Actress in a Drama were unlikely to vote for her in Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical, and vice versa.

Cold Mountain lead the field with 8 nominations, but was nearly shut out winning just the one award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. In this case, the lack of wins is probably more quality-related. The reviews simple are not at the level that 8 nominations suggest. And they are much lower than all three multiple award winners.

On the theatrical side, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King led all winners earning four trophies one ahead of Lost in Translation and two in front of Mystic River, the only other multiple award winners. The overall winner was the TV Mini-series Angels in America, which won five awards.

It is very likely that this is just the beginning for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for reasons I mentioned in a previous story.

The biggest box office boost may go to Osama. The winner for Best Foreign Language Film opens in limited release on Friday, and this award should substantially increase its box office.

The next event in the 2004 Awards Season is the announcement of the Oscar Nominations on Tuesday.
