Our Golden Globe Predictions [Updated]

The Golden Globes are on tonight! This marks the official start of awards season. The following shows to watch are the SAG Awards, the Independent Spirit Awards and, of course, the Oscars. But, tonight is all how the Hollywood Foreign Press Associations wants to kick things off. Check out our predictions on this year’s nominees below. Tune into the Globes on NBC tonight [after football] 8 PM East/5 PM West.

Our Predictions

Winner

FILM

We sided with a few fan favorites as the night’s big film winners. A Star is Born and Crazy Rich Asians were both beloved by fans and critics with big box-office numbers for both. They are contenders for their respective drama and comedy categories. The director for Crazy Rich Asains was overlooked, so we elected Bradley Cooper for Best Director and Lady Gaga for Best Actress, Drama. For top drama film honors we picked A Star is Born to sweep, but that does mean the nearly prefect Black Panther would go home empty-handed. Constance Wu’s strong performance in Crazy Rich Asains should earn her a spot as the top comedy actress. As a first-time nominee, her chances are pretty good.

TELEVISION

“Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” | Amazon

Television is longer perceived as the stepchild of the business as it has stepped up its quality and is more cinematic than ever. This year, juggernaut Game of Thrones is absent from the list because it has not aired in a while, so they will, presumably, return next year for its final season (airing in April). The big winners will most likely mirror the winners from September’s Emmy’sAssassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is likely to sweep again with wins for the show and star Darren Criss. The Best TV Series Drama category is the most interesting as the shows are more obscure, from cable and streaming. Homecoming stars Julia Roberts and we think it may pull out a win for Amazon. Also an Amazon series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, will likely sweep again for its sophomore effort, although the Globes don’t love repeat winners. Though, to us, there is nothing as special as Maisel in competition. Although, we would be happy for a win for The Good Place.
