To say the least, the “Bill and Ted” sci-fi comedies aren’t generally considered awards fare. They follow the title pair of stoned slackers (played by Alex Winter
and Keanu Reeves
) as they travel through time. And yet, in the back of my mind, I keep having the sneaking feeling that we’re underestimating the latest film in the franchise, “Bill and Ted Face the Music
,” at the Golden Globes. In particular, I think Reeves could get a surprise nom for Best Film Comedy/Musical Actor.
SEEDaveed Diggs could become triple Golden Globe nominee for ‘The Good Lord Bird
’ and ‘Snowpiercer
“Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
” started the franchise back in 1989. Its awards success was limited to a couple of nominations at the Saturn Awards. The sequel, “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey,” followed in 1991 with a couple more Saturn noms, including a win for William Sadler
‘s supporting performance as the Grim Reaper.
