It appears the hype around 12 Years a Slave didn't quite come to fruition, at least not the with the Golden Globes. The acclaimed and predicted Oscar favorite took home just one of the awards it was nominated for. Surprise winners include Her, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Dallas Buyers Club.

Are the Globes a tell-tale sign of what is to come with the Oscars? Sometimes. With this I think the Oscars might be full of dark horses. I would watch out for Her, Dallas Buyers Club, and The Wolf of Wall Street. If those get nominations they might just take them. A lot of people were certain 12 Years a Slave and/or Gravity were going to sweep and that didn't happen. The frontrunner so far seems to be American Hustle which is well deserved.
This also marks the first in many years where a Pixar film did not take home Best Animated Feature. The reason being they did not nominate Monsters University. I am pretty sure Pixar would have taken it over Frozen if it was nominated. I'm pretty certain the Oscars won't exclude Pixar, but we will see.
