Well, that was interesting. Just when you think you've got the Oscars figured out, they throw you a huge curve ball. Or, maybe what's so surprising about this year's nominations is how nothing is really different?
With ‘Casino Royale’, ‘Quantum of Solace’ and ‘Skyfall’, the Daniel Craig era of the James Bond movies has been the most successful films of the entire franchise on both a critical and commercial level. That's pretty good for an actor a lot of Bond fans hated when he was originally cast (The Daily Mirror in London ran the headline “The Name's Bland. James Bland.”). With the next installment in Craig's 007 series—‘Spectre’—set for release in November, we thought we'd take a look back at the previous three films in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
When the Golden Globes handed out their Best Picture award for the finest musical and/or comedy of 2014, they chose ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel,’ Wes Anderson’s story of legendary concierge Gustave H, at the titular hotel.
The 2015 Golden Globes winners will be revealed during the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted awards ceremony, broadcast live on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST on NBC.
The 2015 Golden Globes winners are considered somewhat of a primer for the upcoming Oscars (both of which feature many of the same big Hollywood names and movies of the past year), but not exactly a perfect predictor either. Many movies and actors have won at the Golden Globes only to not even be nominated at the Oscars.
Check out the full list of 2015 Golden Globes winners below—which we'll bold as soon as they're announced on the telecast—and let us know what you think in the comments. Did your picks win big?
‘Terminator 2’, James Cameron’s sequel to his cult hit from 1984, had a budget of $94 million. That may not sound like much these days when Michael Bay movies routinely cost over $200 million, but in 1991, when ‘Terminator 2’ first opened in theaters, it was the most expensive movie ever made (this was even more impressive considering that the original ‘Terminator’ cost only $6 million to make). A good chunk of that money went to star Arnold Schwarzenegger who was paid a then-record $15 million, plus they bought him a private jet! Want to know more? No problemo, just watch the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
It’s been almost 30 years since the last ‘Mad Max’ movie hit theaters in 1985.

You can get a primer on all things ‘Mad Max’ in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on George Miller’s dystopian trilogy. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…
There’s no consensus on what the best Christmas movie of all-time is, but ‘Elf‘ would have to be up there with the best of them.

Do you share an affinity for elf culture? Now you can test your ‘Elf’ knowledge with the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!

At just below $1 billion, ‘Despicable Me 2’ is one of the biggest movies of all-time. It’s the fourth biggest animated film of all-time behind ‘Frozen’, ‘Toy Story 3’ and ‘The Lion King’.
