The Golden Globes smiled on some dark-horse films last weekend, generating new excitement about Thursday's Oscar nomination.

Coming-of-age drama Boyhood may have earned top honors at the Golden Globes weekend, but industry watchers say everything is still up for grabs in the all-important Oscars race.

All eyes in Hollywood are now on the Academy Award nominations, to be announced on Thursday, after a few surprise Globes wins on Sunday injected some drama into the annual awards season.

"My first caution to Globes winners: Don't get overconfident," says Variety awards editor Tim Gray, warning that the Globes are a poor predictor of glory at the Oscars, which are set for Feb 22.

Gray pointed out that balloting for the Oscar nominations-due to be unveiled at a traditional pre-dawn ceremony-closed last week.

"So the Globes won't affect nominations. As for Oscar winners on Feb 22, nobody hurt their chances, and a few people boosted their goodwill," he tells AFP.

Going into the Globes race, the frontrunner was dark comedy Birdman, which had been nominated in seven categories-on top of a series of nods and wins in other prize races.
