As usual, I kick things off with my predictions for who I think will win this year's awards. VICE leads the film pack with 6 nominations this year, and "The Asssasination Gianni Versaci" leads the TV pack with 5 nominations. But will they walk away with the most wins, only time will tell. As the nominees arrive on the Red Carpet just down the street from us at The Beverly Hilton, sit back and enjoy my picks. Don't miss the Golden Globes on NBC at 8PM/5PM PT. Enjoy!
Best Motion Picture – Drama
“If Beale Street Could Talk”
First pick, and I'm most likely wrong. This will probably go to "A Star is Born", even though if "Beale Street Could Talk" is a far superior film. Honestly, I feel like "A Star is Born" is the weakest in this category, but for some reason people love it.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Lady Gaga - “A Star Is Born”
Such a great group of actresses, McCarthy could be a surpise winner here, but Gaga should have this award locked down. As much as I didn't care for "A Star is Born", Gaga's performance was the one saving grace of this film. Don't forget she is also a previous Globe winner for "American Horor Story".
Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Rami Malek - “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Don't count out "Green Book" here. I loved the film and I think it's right up the HFPA alley, but "VICE" leads the nominations for a reason.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Olivia Colman - “The Favourite”
Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Christian Bale - “Vice”
Best Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture
Amy Adams - “Vice”
Don't count out Emma Stone for "The Favourite" here. While this is a tight race, I think it's a battle between Stone and Adams.
Best Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture
Mahershala Ali - “Green Book”
Such an incredible group of perfomances from great actors. Mahershala should see another Golden Globe win here, but this is a category ripe for possible surprises.
Best Motion Picture – Animated
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”
I mean, is there really any question here?
Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language
Best Director – Motion Picture
Alfonso Cuaron - “Roma”
Best Screenplay – Motion Picture
Adam McKay - “Vice”
Ok, so maybe this is some personal bias as most of you know I'm a big fan of Adam McKay, but the Oscar winner and multiple Golden Globe nominee is a HFPA favorite. However, the HFPA also loves obscurity and films that aren't quite in the norm, so don't be surprised to see "The Favourite" sneak in with a win here.
Best Original Score – Motion Picture
Marc Shaiman - “Mary Poppins Returns”
Best Original Song – Motion Picture
“Shallow” - “A Star Is Born”
This song as taken the charts by storm! I can't see any possible way it doesn't win.
Best Television Series – Drama
Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama
Julia Roberts - “Homecoming”
Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama
Matthew Rhys - “The Americans”
Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
What an incredible list of nominees. I would love to see "Barry" take this home, and I would really love to see one of my absolute favorites "The Good Place" get a win, but "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is a powerhouse favorite of the HFPA and after their Emmy success, I think they are the favorite to win.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy
Rachel Brosnahan - “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
I would LOVE to see Kristen Bell take this home for "The Good Place", but I think Rachel Bresnahan will continue her award success.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy
Bill Hader - “Barry”
Such a great list of nominees, but after Hader's Emmy win, I think he will be able to keep the winning going.
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”
Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Amy Adams - “Sharp Objects"
Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Darren Criss - “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”
I excpect to see Darren Criss add a Golden Globe to his recent Emmy win for this role.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Alex Borstein - “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Henry Winkler - “Barry”
