Golden Globes Nominations 2013 Predix!

submit to reddit

Apparently, it's awards season, because I'm here again. Making predictions. For the Golden Globes nominations tomorrow. Why? Because, why not. Who knows why the call of awards still gets to me? As I am lazy and it is late, I shall copy and paste my old post, and make new predictions. Because, guess what, that's the way awards work. Funny how that goes.

My special guest, Grizzly, once again helpfully contributes (in purple?).

Actual nominations included (red means I got it wrong).

Django Unchained
Life of Pi
Zero Dark Thirty
Alt. Beasts of the Southern Wild

• Argo
• Django Unchained
• Life of Pi
• Lincoln
• Zero Dark Thirty
Alt: The Master
Dark Horse: Beasts of the Southern Wild

The absence of Django Unchained on the SAG list is troublesome for its chance. However, given that Inglorious Basterds made the list in 2010, I'm betting on the same horse dressed as a mule again. Why I am not worried about the fact that Zero Dark Thirty was left out of SAG ensemble? Probably because it's not an actorly film. I'm making that judgement right now, sight unseen, because I can and I'm right.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Les Misérables
Silver Linings Playbook
Moonrise Kingdom
Hope Springs X Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (?!)
Alt. Magic Mike

• The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
• Les Misérables
• Moonrise Kingdom
• Silver Linings Playbook
• Ted
X Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (?!)
Alt: Pitch Perfect
Dark Horse: This is 40

This is the crowd pleasing category voted by a bunch of old folks, so maybe Magic Mike may get in, depending on how much they want to bone Channing Tatum. It'd have to win the Hope Springs spot though. Hope Springs, you say? Yes, because it stars Meryl Streep. La Streep factor is always en vogue. I'm predicting it now, Silver Linings Playbook is going to win best picture at the Oscars. Anyone marking my word?

Ben Affleck
Kathryn Bigelow
Tom Hooper X Quentin Tarantino (!!!)
Ang Lee
Steven Spielberg
Alt. David O. Russell

• Ben Affleck - Argo
• Kathryn Bigelow - Zero Dark Thirty
• Tom Hooper - Les Misérables
X Quentin Tarantino (!!!)
• Ang Lee - Life of Pi
• Steven Spielberg - Lincoln
Alt: David O. Russell - Silver Linings Playbook
Dark Horse: Quentin Tarantino - Django Unchained

You think I oughta put David O. Russell in there for the final five? If I'm predicting Silver Linings Playbook, it only makes sense if he's also nominated, right? But this isn't about sense. It is about consensus, and the crowd is yelling, dfjaweajw3!#$@. That's what I hear.


John Hawkes
Anthony Hopkins X Richard Gere
Daniel Day Lewis
Joaquin Phoenix
Danzel Washington 

Alt. Jamie Foxx

• Daniel Day-Lewis - Lincoln
• John Hawkes - The Sessions
• Anthony Hopkins - Hitchcock
X Richard Gere
• Joaquin Phoenix - The Master
• Denzel Washington - Flight
Alt: Jamie Foxx - Django Unchained
Dark Horse: Ben Affleck - Argo

I don't care how much people think he hammed it up: I love Phoenix in The Master. That boy can act.


Bradley Cooper
Hugh Jackman

Tommy Lee Jones X Ewan McGregor (?!)
Bill Murray

Channing Tatum X Jack Black (!)
Alt.Mark Wahlberg

• Jack Black - Bernie VV
• Bradley Cooper - Silver Linings Playbook
• Zach Galifianakis - The Campaign
X Ewan McGregor (?!)
• Hugh Jackman - Les Misérables
• Mark Wahlberg - Ted
Alt: Channing Tatum - 21 Jump Street
Dark Horse: Paul Rudd - This is 40

Will Tatum get nominated for Magic Mike or 21 Jump Street? Or will he split his own two-headed votes? To be announced! << GUESS NOT.

Jessica Chastain

Marion Cotillard
Keira Knightley X Rachel Weisz - got her as alternate!
Helen Mirren
Naomi Watts 

Alt. Rachel Weisz

• Jessica Chastain - Zero Dark Thirty
• Mario Cotillard - Rust and Bone
• Keira Knightley - Anna Kareninina
X Rachel Weisz
• Helen Mirren - Hitchcock
• Naomi Watts - The Impossible
Alt: Emmanuelle Riva - Amour
Dark Horse: Quvenzhané Wallis - Beasts of the Southern Wild

I'm not really sure about any of these actresses. I think they are probably voted on how often they get nakkkid in the movies. Mirren, Watts, Knightley, or Weisz? Mirren wins. Dat sass.


Judi Dench
Jennifer Lawrence
Laura Linney X Emily Blunt
Maggie Smith
Meryl Streep
Alt. Anna Kendrick

• Jennifer Lawrence - Silver Linings Playbook
• Judi Dench - The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
• Meryl Streep - Hope Springs
• Rebel Wilson - Pitch Perfect
X Emily Blunt
• Leslie Mann - This is 40
X Maggie Smith
Alt: Anna Kendrick - Pitch Perfect
Dark Horse: Shirley MacLaine - Bernie

There's a real chance Katniss may win something something this year.

Alan Arkin
Javier Bardem X Christoph Waltz
Leonardo diCaprio!

Philip Seymour Hoffman 
Matthew McConaughey
X Tommy Lee Jones
Alt. Tommy Lee Jones

• Alan Arkin - Argo
• Robert De Niro - Silver Linings Playbook
X Christoph Waltz
• Leonardo DiCaprio - Django Unchained
• Philip Seymour Hoffman - The Master
• Tommy Lee Jones - Lincoln
Alt: Javier Bardem - Skyfall
Dark Horse: Matthew McConaughey - Magic Mike

Go Leo! I'm so going to get owned in this category.

Amy Adams

Sally Field
Ann Hathaway
Helen Hunt
Nicole Kidman 

Alt. Maggie Smith

• Amy Adams - The Master
• Sally Field - Lincoln
• Anne Hathaway - Les Misérables
• Helen Hunt - The Sessions
• Maggie Smith - The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel X Nicole Kidman
Alt: Judi Dench - Skyfall
Dark Horse: Ann Dowd - Compliance

There are too many actresses vying for the five spots, any of these gals can be left off the ballot. Well, except for Ann Hathaway and Helen Hunt. Nicole has to be there because they luuurve her.


The Master X Django Unchained (!!)
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty

Alt. Django Unchained

• Argo
• Les Misérables
X Django Unchained (!!)
• Lincoln
• Silver Linings Playbook
• Zero Dark Thirty
Alt: Django Unchained
Dark Horse: Moonrise Kingdom

The Master deserves to be there. But this is not about deservedness, is it now. It's about spreading. Just spreading. I don't know. I'm sleepy.


A royal affair
The Intouchables
Rust and Bone

War Witch X Kon-Tiki
Alt. Barbara
• Amour
• Holy Motors
X Kon-Tiki
• The Intouchables
• A Royal Affair
• Rust and Bone
Alt: Headhunters
Dark Horse: Caesar Must Die

I have no clue, but Tabu is not going to be nominated, and that makes me sad panda.

Paranorman X Hotel Transylvania

Rise of the Guardians
Wreck-it Ralph
Alt. Wreck-it Ralph
• Brave
• Frankenweenie
• ParaNorman
X Hotel Transylvania
• The Pirates! Band of Misfits
X Rise of the Guardians
• Wreck-It Ralph
Alt: Rise of the Guardians
Dark Horse: Hotel Transylvania

Are they going for 3 or 5? I don't know, and I'm not sure I care. No, I'm certain I don't care.

Anna Karenina 

Life of Pi
The Hobbit X Cloud Atlas
Alt. The Master

• Anna Karenina
• Argo
• The Hobbit
X Cloud Atlas
• Lincoln
• Life of Pi
Alt: The Master
Dark Horse: Brave

What do I know? I can't hum any of this.

Um ...

Something from Brave X "Not Running Anymore," Stand-Up Guys
Something from Les Mis (Suddenly)
That Adele song from Skyfall (Skyfall)
Something from The Hobbit X "For You," Act of Valor
Something else X "Safe and Sound," The Hunger Games
That's all I got.

• Brave
X "Safe and Sound," The Hunger Games
• The Hobbit
X "Not Running Anymore," Stand-Up Guys
• Les Misérables
• Life of Pi
X "For You," Act of Valor
• Skyfall
Alt: Brave
Dark Horse: Frankenweenie


I faded.

Okay so I tallied our predictions.. We didn't do that bad after all!

You got 52 (+3 alternates) correct while I got 52 (+2 alternates)! You win by the slimmest margin in the history of everything! I'd actually have +3 too since I had Tarantino as a dark horse for director, but it'd be unfair to count that since you didn't do any dark horse picks.

The only category we sucked at was song.. But looking at the nominees (Act of Valor? The Stand Up Guys? Huh?) I imagine most people sucked.

Thanks for the tally. I was going to do it, but I looked at the number of red strikes and they looked depressing so I didn't. Yay for willful ignorance.
