A third and final crack at 2017 Golden Globe predictions


Folks, here is a sense of just how deep into the end of the year we’ve gotten. The Golden Globe Awards will announce their nominations early on next week. Monday morning, to be specific. One of the highest profile nominating bodies out there, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA, for short) will have their say and potentially shape the race. Keep in mind that they have limited impact on the Oscars, but Academy Award voters do pay some degree of attention to what goes on here. As such, it’s worth our time. One last shot at acing the nominations is what you’ll see here. There’s definitely still some mystery here, though the season is already taking shape with other precursors.

Below is my final crack at figuring out the Globes. It should be a good morning for Call Me By Your Name, Dunkirk, Get Out, and Lady Bird, to name a few titles in solid position. Look out for The Disaster Artist to potentially do very well too. A lot will depend on what the HFPA think of the just revealed big guns. If they’re into Phantom Thread and The Post, that could make things more competitive. There’s also the little matter of The Greatest Showman, which seems made for Globe love. We’ll know in just a few short days. Until then, my final picks are up next…
