Final Golden Globe Predictions

Golden Globe nominations will be announced tomorrow morning. I’m very excited since I feel like I’ve seen so much more than ever before at this point, and I’m hoping to be happy with all the picks. I’m making three small changes to my predictions, two of which are based off the category switching of “Uncut Gems” to drama after I had already written some of my predictions. Therefore, I’m swapping out Christian Bale for Adam Sandler in drama, and Daniel Craig will take Sandler’s spot in comedy. I also saw “Richard Jewell” within the last week and think it will do well, so I’m putting Sam Rockwell in for supporting actor with a suspicion that both Paul Walter Hauser and Kathy Bates, plus director Clint Eastwood, could also show up. I’m hoping that both “Booksmart” actresses aren’t left off, and it would be great if the movie earned a nomination too. The film I’m most pulling for to surprise is “Wild Rose,” which I’ve predicted for Best Original Song, and I’d love to see it earn star Jessie Buckley a best actress bid, though I’m not sure if it would be considered a drama or a musical. I’d also be ecstatic if “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” or “Honey Boy” broke through in significant ways. And a nomination for Aldis Hodge for “Clemency” would be wonderful. But, for now, I’ll settle for my bold and probably incorrect predictions that “Parasite” will be nominated only for Best Foreign Film and that Margot Robbie will earn two Best Supporting Actress nominations. Let’s see how it goes! Full reactions by category beginning Monday morning, though probably not quite as early as nominations are announced given that I’m currently in Los Angeles.

Jessie Buckley and “Wild Rose” both nominated in Comedy/Musical
Julia Fox for Best Supporting Actress for “Uncut Gems”
