In the clip above, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, hosts of next Sunday’s Golden Globe awards are having a little fun. “Ten seconds or less why the Golden Globes are the best awards show… hmmm… gimme a minute…” Looks promising. The time has come for some predictions.
In the Drama categories, 12 Years a Slave looks like a winner, but Alfonso Cuarón is likely to win an award for his direction of Gravity; so will also Steven Price for his score. Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) are up for a duel, but Cate Blanchett will win her category for Blue Jasmine. Best Supporting Actor looks like a shoo-in for Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club; Supporting Actress might turn into a fight between Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) and Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave).
In the Comedy/Musical categories, American Hustle will win Best Motion Picture. Bruce Dern looks set to be rewarded for his work in Nebraska, but will face a challenge from Leonardo DiCaprio who’s simply outstanding in The Wolf of Wall Street. Amy Adams will likely win a Golden Globe for American Hustle. The Screenplay category will probably also go American Hustle’s way.
Best Song might go to Frozen (“Let It Go”, performed by Idina Menzel), and that movie will also win Animated Feature. The Foreign Language Film category belongs to Cannes favorite Blue is the Warmest Color.
I believe that Breaking Bad will win Best Drama Series; Bryan Cranston will also take Best Actor and Aaron Paul might win Supporting Actor. Kerry Washington looks set to snatch a Golden Globe for Scandal.
In the Comedy category, I wouldn’t be surprised if Brooklyn Nine-Nine pulls off an upset. The acting categories are more predictable, with Michael J. Fox slated to win for The Michael J. Fox Show and Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep. The Supporting Actress category is also predicted to go to Sofia Vergara for Modern Family.
As for TV movies and miniseries, Behind the Candelabra will win, along with Michael Douglas in the Best Actor category. Best Actress however looks like a duel between Helena Bonham Carter in Burton and Taylor and Jessica Lange in American Horror Story: Coven.
