Variety was surprised that Emma Watson's performance in this film didn't earn her a Golden Globe nomination.

SNUB: Emma Watson, “Beauty and the Beast”
The “Harry Potter” star has never been nominated for a Golden Globe. Although the Hollywood Foreign Press loves musicals, they didn’t show any affection for Belle.

This snub didn't surprise me all that much. I thought she was good, but I wouldn't call her performance one of the year's best.

They auto-tuned her singing voice to death to the point of it being unrecognisable. Of course that won't win her any award. And that coming from a big Emma Watson fan.

Gutted that Wonder Woman didn't win any award though, screw the Golden Globe.

At the red carpet for the Golden Globes, Emma Watson says that a sequel could potentially happen. We'll see.

Ugh. No.

Go play Hermoine again, Emma. THAT has sequel potential.

Beauty & The Beast 2 and Maleficent 2...

Both sequels I have no strong interest tbh.... Probably gonna flop hard like Alice: Through the Looking Glass.

Hey, does anyone recall the times where not all movies were expected to have sequels and that one film was good enough? >_> Geez, what in the world could they do with either film story wise, especially Maleficent. What could they possibly do to actually make it interesting.

Anyway, that aside, I forgot to mention (I think) that back in November, I went to my coworker's place along with a group of others for like a Thanksgiving/Christmas combo celebration. That particular coworker is a big Disney fan. Every month, seemingly, she finds a way to go to Tokyo Disney here and she's traveled a bit and has been to many Disney parks around the world. Anyway, she rented the live-action Beauty and the Beast, and to my shock, I actually enjoyed it.

There were some things I could've done without, like the Beast's song after Belle leaves oh and Emma Watson's singing (I just didn't care for it), but the film was generally okay. I liked the fact that they did explain one of the plotholes that I never thought much about when watching the original 1991 version...or either I don't remember because I've only seen that one once...when it was in theaters. Why did everyone forget there was a castle in the woods and that there was a prince. That was a very welcomed addition.

My favorite character of the movie was LaFue. He was pretty funny and I remember for the 1991 version, I didn't think much of him, but I did like Gaston for the 1991 one for how absurdly arrogant and cocky he was. I remember laughing at him a lot. Gaston for this film was just evil, man. Tying Maurice to the tree to die...shooting the beast in the back...geez man. I was ready to give him benefit of the doubt like in the original and find him a grey character.

Oh well, so yeah...I liked it okay.

The film turned a profit of $414.7 million. This makes it the second most profitable film of 2017 behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

That's great to hear, I personally loved the film so I'm very happy to see that it did very well.

Nostalgia critic released his review of the 2017 Beauty and the Beast:

I love these articles from Deadline and didn't realize they were out for the 2017 movies yet.
