Golden Globe Predictions After The Nominations


With the Golden Globe Awards having announced their nominations earlier this month, the time has come to update predictions and try to figure out just who and what are in line to win awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA) will be chiming in at a vital point in this Oscar season. Voters will be making up their minds at a time more central than normal, so the Golden Globes could easily play a bigger part in the race for Academy Award glory than we usually see.

Right now, I see the HFPA going big for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. In all likelihood, it has Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy in the bag, so it’ll come down to how it fares in the combined categories. There, it will do constant battle with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, which is the odds on favorite to take the Best Motion Picture – Drama category. Perhaps they’ll split and it’ll be a good showing for them both? Watch out for Bong Joon-Ho and his film Parasite to play spoiler in Best Director and Best Screenplay, since the movie itself isn’t eligible in the Motion Picture categories, though it’ll easily take Best Foreign Language Feature. There are numerous possibilities to consider, that’s for sure…
