Updated Golden Globe predictions as December wraps up


Regardless of how much they correlate with the Academy Awards (or don’t), the Golden Globes are a precursor that a lot of attention is paid to. We talk about this each and every year. They don’t matter, and yet, they also really matter. Whether it’s testing out acceptance speeches for winners, a show of strength for frontrunners, or just seeing how certain titles play on television, it factors into the grand scheme of the awards season. As such, when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA) speak, we’ve been trained to listen. Oscar voters may well be listening too, and watching. So, attention must be paid, especially at this crucial moment when members of the Academy are getting ready to fill out their ballots early on next year.

The Globes are going to have some interesting choices on their hands next month. On the Drama side of things, A Star Is Born seems like the frontrunner, but any upset wins by BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, or Bohemian Rhapsody could upend the race a tad. In particular, look for Rami Malek to really give Bradley Cooper a run for his money in Best Actor. On the Musical or Comedy side, Vice led the nominations, so it seems like the mild favorite in its categories. The X factor is how voters feel about Green Book. Will it still be the crowd pleasing favorite? Or, will some of the controversial buzz scare folks off? If so, could The Favourite slide in at the last minute? These are just some of the questions to ponder, with my predictions found below…
