2016 Golden Globes Winners Predix: Will Spotlight take the spotlight? Or the Revenant rises?

submit to reddit

Time for wild predix! As usual, Griz's predictions in purple

Alt. The Revenant

Alt: The Revenant

Editor: I've actually seen all the films in this category so I feel I should be able to predict this one. Yet, I'm not quite sold on my choice. Spotlight is about journalism, which is somewhat a home field for the Globes' members, so I'm betting on self-interest voting. HOWEVER, having seen the Revenant, if they'd like to throw their predictive support towards a heavy weight, Leonardo's epic film may take the ball from a more subdued Spotlight. The other films don't factor much into the race. Unless Mad Max wins everything! HA.

The Big Short
Alt. The Martian

The Big Short
Alt. The Martian

Editor: The race is between the crowd-pleasers Short and Martian. I'd say The Big Short because of a very hot McKay touch.

Alejandro González Iñárritu - The Revenant
Alt. George Miller - Mad Max: Fury Road

George Miller - Mad Max: Fury Road 
Alt: Alejandro González Iñárritu - The Revenant

Editor: I'd think the two show-y directorial presentations are the front runners, and AGI gets it for a more "artsy" film. Although, Ridley Scott may sneak in just because.

Leonardo Di Caprio - The Revenant
Alt. Michael Fassbender - Steve Jobs

Leonardo Di Caprio - The Revenant
Alt. Michael Fassbender - Steve Jobs

Editor: It would be foolish for the Globes to reward this to anyone else but Leo. They like their TV viewership too much.

Matt Damon - The Martian
Alt. Steve Carrell - The Big Short

Christian Bale - The Big Short
Alt: Matt Damon - The Martian

Editor: That Matt Damon, he's just so likable! He'll be rewarded for carrying that movie to the bank, though Globes probably cares more that he's so darn likable.

Brie Larson - Room
Alt. Alicia Vikander - The Danish Girl

Cate Blanchett - Carol
Alt: Saoirse Ronan - Brooklyn

Editor: Cate Blanchett basically reprises her Jasmine role from Blue Jasmine, so I'm not sure Globes would go for that. Alicia is the window to The Danish Girl, and the hot newcomer of the year. But, being nominated twice just means you're more likely to lose twice. It's Brie's to lose.

Jennifer Lawrence - Joy
Alt. Amy Schumer - Trainwreck

Jennifer Lawrence - Joy
Alt: Melissa McCarthy - Spy

Editor: There's a very good chance the red-hot new comedienne Amy Schumer wins against her new bestie, J. Law. But, it's J. Law. Her star power and the actingness of her role win hearts.

Idris Elba - Beasts of No Nation
Alt. Sylvester Stallone - Creed

Mark Rylance - Bridge of Spies
Alt: Sylvester Stallone - Creed

Editor: I haven't seen Spies, and don't really want to so I have no idea how Mark Rylance got here, never mind winning. Wouldn't it be something if Stallone wins an ACTING award though? I think they'll give it to Elba, because Globes doesn't care if Beasts is not released in the theatre. And because Idris is handsome.

Jane Fonda -Youth
Alt. Alicia Vikander - Ex-Machina

Jennifer Jason Leigh - The Hateful Eight
Alt: Alicia Vikander - Ex Machina

Editor: Alicia's chance of winning is greater in this supporting category, but ... Jane Fonda. I think Globes likes the spitfire performance. It's very, um, European.

Alt. The Big Short

Alt. The Big Short

Editor: Spotlight is more serious of the two, so given the Globes' recent trend of superseriousness, I'd say the strong contender Big Short loses out (probably not by much).

Son of Saul
Alt. Mustang

Son of Saul
Alt. Mustang

Editor: It's safe to say Son of Saul is going to win the Oscars. Globes ain't no stray cat.

Inside Out
Alt. Anomalisa

Inside Out
Alt. Anomalisa

Editor: It's too bad I couldn't make Anomalisa happen before the Globes, so I really can't tell how this category plays out. However, given that Inside Out is some kind of a heart-warming success, it's likely the forgone-conclusion winner here. 

The Hateful Eight
Alt. The Revenant

The Hateful Eight
Alt. Carol

Editor: Two powerful scores, one for the win. I'd bet on the famous Western composer.

Love & Mercy
Alt. Fifty shades of grey

Fifty Shades of Grey
Alt: Love & Mercy

Editor: I wish, wish so much that Youth would win its most deserving spot here, because that Simple Song is soul-shifting. Sigh. I am going for star-power instead.
