American Hustle Could Railroad Everything
The Globes is famously infuriating for arbitrarily separating some of its honors into Comedy/Music and Drama, which creates awkward nominee selections. This yearís inclusion of American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street, Her and Nebraska into the comedy category was no different. And so when Hustleís Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence took home their acting awards, it wasnít too much of a shock when the film won in its category.

So while it obviously means some people are capable of finding that movie better as a whole than Martin Scorseseís Wolf of Wall Street, we still donít know how it will fare against the dramatic prowess of 12 Years a Slave. Personally, I think Russellís films are more interesting but I find McQueenís short filmography features stories that are more important. And in the light of the all-around better true story of corruption Argo winning last year, Iím not sure Hustle can live up to that standard. Of course, Wolf of Wall Street might just step up and snort all of the competition.
