The Golden Globes are already coming up. The show will be on NBC this Sunday and Seth Meyers debuts as host. Should be a solid experience, but perhaps with few surprises. One thing we can be certain of is many references to #metoo, especially on the red carpet.
Now here’s my predictions – category by category.
- Motion Picture (Drama): I believe that The Post will be irresistible to many in this category, but The Shape of Water looks like the winner.
- Motion Picture (Comedy/Musical): Get Out poses a challenge, but Lady Bird will win.
- Animated Feature: Some are rooting for The Breadwinner, but Pixar has a winner in Coco.
- Foreign Language Film: Angelina Jolie has her fans among Golden Globe voters, so maybe First They Killed My Father has a shot. But The Square from Sweden is a better bet.
- Director: Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water.
- Actor (Drama): Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour.
- Actress (Drama): Frances McDormand, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.
- Actor (Comedy): James Franco, The Disaster Artist.
- Actress (Comedy): Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird (but Margot Robbie in I, Tonya poses a challenge).
- Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer saved All the Money in the World after the #metoo debacle, but Willem Dafoe in The Florida Project is the likely winner.
- Supporting Actress: Laurie Metcalf will probably win for Lady Bird, but Allison Janney in I, Tonya puts up a fight.
- Screenplay: Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.
- Score: The Shape of Water.
- Song: “Remember Me” (Coco).
- Drama Series: The Handmaid’s Tale.
- Comedy Series: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
- TV Movie/Limited Series: Big Little Lies.
- Actor (Drama): Sterling K. Brown in This Is Us, but Freddie Highmore in The Good Doctor will be tough competition.
- Actress (Drama): Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale.
- Actor (Comedy): Eric McCormack, Will & Grace.
- Actress (Comedy): Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
- Actor (TV Movie/Limited Series): Robert De Niro will likely win for The Wizard of Lies, but Ewan McGregor has a shot for his great work in Fargo.
- Actress (TV Movie/Limited Series): Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies.
- Supporting Actor: Alexander Skarsgård, Big Little Lies.
- Supporting Actress: Laura Dern, Big Little Lies.
