Final Golden Globe predictions

golden globes stage 600x420
A big day is coming, ladies and gentlemen. Yes, on Sunday night, we’ll have in some ways what amounts to a test run for Oscar in the Golden Globe Awards. Yes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA for short) has basically no overlap, voter wise, with the Academy, but to some degree what happens at the Globes still affects what happens with Oscar. Mostly, it makes a difference in terms of potential winners, especially since voting by Academy members for nominations will be over before Sunday, but still…they’ll be watching. As such, it makes it all the more important to keep an eye on what happens here. In that regard, I’ve got one last set of predictions for the Golden Globes, in an effort to see what the members of the HFPA are going to do this weekend.

As far as I can tell, Spotlight is still in a position to do pretty well here, but the big change I’ve gone ahead to predict is both Mad Max: Fury Road becoming its main challenger in some categories, but also that The Big Short seems to have overtaken The Martian in some other categories. Those four, give or take Carol, are the main players for Sunday night, but surprises could very well be in store here. Globe voters are a peculiar bunch, and while you can sometimes guess what’s in store, oftentimes there’s at least one or two things you didn’t see coming. Potentially, we could see a huge split between the various players, only making things more confusing for pundits like myself. Regardless, it’s going to be an interesting ceremony to close out the weekend, that’s for sure. Sit tight until we see who wins, and check back on Monday for some analysis of what did go down…
