Yesterday Zer covered the snubs of this year’s Golden Globes nominations, those overlooked. So, today, I thought I’d discuss the fortune tellers. You know them as, the nominated films that have not been released yet.
Is this basically a thinly veiled excuse to write about “Into the Woods”? Yes. Now, sit back and enjoy.
This is not that rare of an occurrence, a film being nominated before it’s been released, but with a movie like “Into the Woods” whose fan base has been very vocal with worries concerning the translation of this beloved musical from stage to screen, this is a hopeful sign.
True, one of the nominations is Meryl Streep, who should just get an Oscar for gracing us with her talent, but the movie itself receiving an honor, that’s a good sign.

But, you have to admit at this point, it looks like they did a great job (I will share this, any chance I get):
So, fans who are still convinced that your favorite musical has been ruined, take a moment, take a breath, accept the inevitability that something has been changed (it’s a necessity…we all learned this from “Jersey Boys”), and continue counting down the days until Christmas. It’s going to be okay.
For those who can’t be consoled or convinced, watch this and be happy:
