Those two Golden Globe Munich nominations — Steven Spielberg for Best Director and Tony Kushner (and Eric Roth?) for Best Screenplay — are ceremonial/political gestures meant to compensate for the lack of a Best Picture (Drama) nomination.

The “presumptive Best Picture winner” made by the Mighty Steven has struck out.
