Final Golden Globe Predictions

Please find my final Golden Globe predictions for all film categories below. This morning’s SAG Awards nominations announcement featured three surprising inclusions, and rather than be reactionary, I’ve modified my predictions in only one category to reflect a change I had planning to make earlier this week, which is to include Jennifer Aniston as the fifth Best Drama Actress nominee rather than Jessica Chastain, who I would have been predicting to be a double nominee. Jake Gyllenhaal could certainly get in, though I don’t think he will, and if Naomi Watts gets in for “St. Vincent,” good for her. I know I’m taking a risk by not predicting “Selma” and opting to foresee Globe enthusiasm for “Rosewater” instead, and I’m still sticking by my predictions for “Interstellar” for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director. You can see my TV predix over at TV with Abe. Check in all day tomorrow for reactions by category!
