And in what would amount to a typical night for an Oakland Athletics hitter these days, the movie that discussed their resurgence went 0 for 4 at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards. Moneyball ended up losing to The Descendants in the crucial best picture category. Although Moneyball wasn't expected to win many big awards this week, a few wins here could have probably got the momentum rolling toward a potential Oscar campaign. Not the case anymore.
It caps off a night of hopes and dreams being dashed for the promising summer film that turned into a popular hit with movie fans everywhere. Jonah Hill lost to Christopher Plummer in the Best Supporting Actor category, Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian lost the Best Screenplay award to Woody Allen, and Brad Pitt lost to George Clooney. You have to think The Descendants probably is the big winner tonight as they gear up for what figures to be a big campaign toward the Oscars, while Moneyball is probably a big underdog coming out of this weekend.
