Taking A Fourth Crack At Golden Globe Predictions


Believe it or not, we’re only about two weeks away from the Golden Globe nominations being announced. Somehow, we’ve spent months checking in on this precursor from time to time, so there actually isn’t that much more to say. Early next month, right before the announcement, we’ll have a full piece with some final analysis on what could be (right now, I have Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood having an extraordinarily good day, which may be an overestimation). Today, however, it’s just going to be new predictions to share. Take a look at these and sit tight for one final update the weekend before the announcement, which is Monday, December 9th.
