The movie industry is raving about the recently announced nominee list and predictions for the Golden Globes® awards show in January 2018. Taking advantage of it’s large audience of loyal and supportive movie fans, Atom Tickets, a pioneer social movie ticketing app, recently collected survey results from more than 1,000 people between December 15-18, 2017.
The main goal of the survey was to invite movie fans to vote for a chosen group of the Golden Globes Best Picture nominees. The survey respondents represent a part of Atom’s audience, which is made up of nearly 4 million active monthly users* with more than 70% of them between the ages of 18-34.
Of those which responded to the survey, 62% said they are planning on watching the Golden Globes and the following summarizes their picks. Beginning with:
- Best Picture Drama, Atom movie fans picked “Dunkirk.”
- For Best Picture Comedy/Musical it was a tie between “Get Out” and “The Greatest Showman.”
When it came to the best actress categories, Atom users enjoyed the performances from:
- Meryl Streep in “The Post”
- And Emma Stone in the “Battle of the Sexes.”
In the best actor category, Atom users awarded performances from:
- Denzel Washington in “Roman J. Israel”
- And Hugh Jackman in “The Greatest Showman.”
Additionally, Atom’s movie fans were also fast to share their reactions to what wasn’t nominated. Atom openly asked them to vote on a few options for biggest snubs and they responded overwhelmingly (61%) that “Wonder Woman” should have been nominated for a Best Picture award.
The other question they responded to created a Top 5 list of snubs, leading the ranked list of snubs was Jordan Peele of “Get Out” not being nominated for Best Director.
