Final Golden Globe predictions

Believe it or not folks, tomorrow the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will announce their nominees for the Golden Globe awards. Bright and early we’ll know what the HFPA feels about cinema in 2015, and perhaps even a bit about what the Oscar nominations could wind up looking like. As such, I’m putting out my final predictions, ones that I’ll have to stick with for the rest of the day, even if, knowing me, I’ll immediately want to switch them up. That’s the nature of the beast though, and I’ve long since accepted it. The Globes aren’t the biggest precursor in relation to the Academy Awards, of course, but they’re hardly the smallest either. Keeping that in mind, below you’ll see my best guess for the Golden Globes, which will no doubt have a surprise or two in store for us.

This time out, it’s do or die, prediction wise. There’s no more category confusion and the earlier precursors have clued us in to which films might be the most lovingly received all season long. Here with the Globes, what you want to look out for is how well Spotlight does, if The Martian has as good a showing, and if the late breaking contenders like The Hateful Eight, Joy, and The Revenant manage to get more than token bits of love (one other thing is to watch for if Mad Max: Fury Road is shut out or not). I suspect that the HFPA will spread the attention around, though one of those above titles will likely lead the field. Watch out for Brooklyn and Carol though, as they could be surprises tomorrow morning. Sit tight…
