The best director and best screenplay Globe categories are always interesting because they each contain only five slots and can therefore provide clues about which of the 10 best picture nominees have the strongest shots in their respective categories more so with the drama category (the last time a film won it without also being nominated for best director was 22 years ago, with Scent of a Woman) than with the musical or comedy category (the last time a film won it without also being nominated for best director was just two years ago, with Les Miserables). See more Golden Globes: 24 of the Biggest Film and TV Snubs This year’s best picture-nominated drama Boyhood and musicals/comedies Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel each landed director and screenplay noms, as well; the same cannot be said for The Imitation Game (only screenplay) and Selma (only director), not to mention Foxcatcher, Into the Woods, Pride, St. Vincent or The Theory of Everything.
