Taking A First Crack At Golden Globe Predictions

I wind up repeating myself every year, but I’m going to start things off for these 2019 predictions in the same way. As you all know, one of the glitziest precursors out there is the Golden Globe Awards. They may not be incredibly influential, Oscar wise, but they definitely factor[...]
