With "American Hustle," "12 Years A Slave" and "Gravity" perceived as the frontrunners headed into the Oscars, which are in just a few short weeks, "Captain Phillips" is uh, rocking the boat, in the precursor awards. With a win at the WGA Awards last week, "Captain Phillips" made it clear it was in the mix—and after the ACE Eddie Awards, it could be a bona fide contender come Oscar night.

10 Things We Learned From The 2014 Golden Globes
If you're a salesperson of aspirin, raw eggs or hair-of-the-dog booze in Hollywood, today is a good day for you: it's the morning after the Golden Globes, otherwise known as the single most hungover day in the Hollywood calendar. The night that truly kicks off the two-month-long season of awards ceremonies, all leading up to the Oscars at the start of March, its reputation is as one that not many take seriously, but everyone treats as a bit of a party, with some gloriously decadent shenanigans taking place over the years.

American Hustle
Well, that's a wrap. "12 Years a Slave" won Best Drama, but "American Hustle" took three of the top prizes including Best Comedy/Musical, Best Actress Comedy/Musical and Best Supporting Actress. Probably the biggest surprise of the night, though not a shock if you've been reading the tea leaves of late, Matthew McConaughey scoring the Best Actor (Drama) prize for "Dallas Buyers Club" over Robert Redford, Chiwetel Ejiofor and that crowded field. More analysis tomorrow and in the meantime, check out to see how we did with our Globes predictions.

American Hustle Louis C.K.
There is no such thing as a small role, the old saying goes, and one of the many pleasures to be found in David O. Russell's awards season contender "American Hustle," is Louis C.K.'s turn as Stoddard Thorsen, the supervisor to Bradley Cooper's slowly unraveling FBI agent Richie DiMaso. Throughout the film, the two come head-to-head, bickering over the scope and reach of their operation, and their meetings are usually finished by Stoddard sharing a new portion of an ice fishing story which Richie keeps trying to guess the end of. In the movie, neither the audience nor Richie manage to hear the punchline, but it has finally been revealed.

Gravity
Awards season ticks along and the wee hours of this morning have brought an announcement from the British Academy Of Film And Television Arts, or BAFTA, that as ever, is full of surprises. "Gravity" leads the field with eleven nominations, with "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle" just behind with ten, and "Captain Phillips" with nine. "Saving Mr. Banks" also did well with five, as did (surprisingly enough) "Behind the Candelabra," which got a theatrical release in the U.K., and was therefore eligible. Brit favorite "Philomena" also had a strong showing with four nods, joining "Gravity" in picking up nominations for Best Film and Best British Film.

American Hustle
The Coens might want to hold on putting down that deposit for a tuxedo, as it seems their wonderful "Inside Llewyn Davis" is not registering with voters. After being shut out of the Producers Guild and Writers Guild awards nominations, the directorial duo have once again been left in the cold, this time by the DGA.
