Final Golden Globe Predictions

Please find my final Golden Globe predictions for all film categories below. This morning’s SAG Awards nominations announcement presented a few notable snubs, and I’m hopeful that tomorrow will bring plenty more creativity and some equally positive inclusions like Barkhad Abdi and Daniel Bruhl. A Best Motion Picture – Drama bid for “Dallas Buyers Club” would catapult that film’s Oscar chances incredibly, while a snub for Robert Redford could mean his chances are really dwindling. I made two changes to my predictions from my musings, and both were earlier this week: swapping out one French actress for another in drama actress, and one “American Hustle” star for another in supporting actor. I’m predicting a double nomination for Tom Hanks, and would love to see two for Matthew McConaughey too (I like his performance less likely to be recognized better). The top races seem sewn up, so let’s go for some fun surprises! I’m rooting for “Blue is the Warmest Color” to do well, and I’d love to see both “Enough Said” and “The Way, Way Back” get a boost too. I’d easily switch “Philomena” and “Saving Mr. Banks” to the comedy race and “Nebraska” and “August: Osage County” to drama (I assume that “American Hustle” and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the two big films I haven’t seen, also apply), and so this should be an interesting race. Let’s hope for the best – check in all day tomorrow for reactions by category!
