Taking A Second Crack At Golden Globe Predictions


Here we go again. As September rolls on, the awards season continues to slowly emerge. Today, it’s another look at what the Golden Globes could be like. While the Globes don’t directly impact the Academy Awards, nomination wise, it’s not unreasonable to look at this precursor and see that Oscar voters sometimes use it while picking winners. As such, you can’t easily discount it, and nor should you…

As we mentioned the last time around, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA) do favor celebrities, while following the beat of their own drummer, so it pays to always look at big flashy productions. That could still give Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman an edge over Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story in Best Picture (Drama), though the former will screen a week from now and finally reveal itself. That being said, it would still be silly to discount James Mangold’s Ford v. Ferrari, or maybe even Joker. In the Musical/Comedy section, one assumes that Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood will steamroll. If it does, one might assume that it could be setting itself up for a nice haul from the Academy as well. However, watch out for Jojo Rabbit. More below, so take a look!
