Golden Globes Nominations Predictions

submit to reddit

So ... I completely missed the Globes nominations. Very sad face inserted here.  Where's Dr. Strange when I need a time rewind? My friend, Griz, did his due diligence and made the predictions. I have to post them here, it's only right. And since the nominations are actually out, even though I did not have a good look at them, it would be cheating for me to 'predict' something that's already out. Instead, I'll comment on the ones I would've guessed, as applicable for each category.

BEST MOTION PICTURE (DRAMA)

Fences
Hacksaw Ridge
Manchester by the Sea
Moonlight
Silence

Alt: Arrival

Editor comment: My alternate would've been Hell or High Water. I remember people liking that film quite a bit. I would've taken out Fences from this list; I know nothing about Fences. In its place, I would have guessed Arrival to have its presence announced here, having seen the film. And I would have added Lion in place of Silence, thinking the Foreign Press would've liked a feely Nicole Kidman film. I would've kept Manchester, Moonlight and Hacksaw.

BEST MOTION PICTURE (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

20th Century Women
Deadpool
Florence Foster Jenkins
Hail, Caesar!
La La Land

Alt: The Nice Guys


Editor comment: Wow I would've sucked at this category. Let's see, I would've kept Hail Caesar and La La Land, and put The Nice Guys as an official third option, with Florence thrown in there because it's a Meryl Streep movie. The last spot would've probably gone to 20th Century Women. I would've not guessed Deadpool, because it was really raunchy. My alternate would've been Rules Don't Apply, for the Beatty factor. I would've wished The Lobster would've gotten in here. I love that movie.

BEST DIRECTOR

Damien Chazelle - La La Land
Barry Jenkins - Moonlight
Kenneth Lonergan - Manchester by the Sea
Martin Scorsese - Silence
Denzel Washington - Fences

Alt: Mel Gibson - Hacksaw Ridge

Editor comment: Okay, I'm getting sleepy ... heh. Pablo Larrain instead of Denzel Washington, and the alternate would've been Clint Eastwood.

BEST ACTRESS (DRAMA)

Amy Adams - Arrival
Isabelle Huppert - Elle
Ruth Negga - Loving
Natalie Portman - Jackie
Jessica Chastain - Miss Sloane

Alt: Taraji P. Henson - Hidden Fences

Editor comment: I would've concurred.

BEST ACTOR (DRAMA)

Casey Affleck - Manchester by the Sea
Joel Edgerton - Loving
Andrew Garfield - Hacksaw Ridge
Tom Hanks - Sully
Denzel Washington - Fences

Alt: Andrew Garfield - Silence

Editor comment: Jake Gyllenhaal in place of Joel Edgerton. Alternate: Joel Edgerton.

BEST ACTRESS (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

Emma Stone - La La Land
Annette Bening - 20th Century Women
Meryl Streep - Florence Foster Jenkins
Sally Field - Hello, My Name Is Doris
Kate Beckinsale - Love and Friendship

Alt: Hailee Steinfeld - The Edge of Seventeen

Editor comment: I would've put Hailee there in place of Kate Beckinsale. And I probably would've gone for The Lobster's Rachel Weisz in place of Sally Field, for bias reason. Alt. Sally Field.

BEST ACTOR (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

Warren Beatty - Rules Don’t Apply
Colin Farrell - The Lobster
Ryan Gosling - La La Land
Hugh Grant - Florence Foster Jenkins
Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool

Alt: Viggo Mortensen - Captain Fantastic

Editor comment: My friend said Captain Fantastic made her cry so ... probably Viggo trading place with Ryan Reynolds. I can't believe Ryan Reynolds got nominated - not that it was not a good comedic performance; it just didn't seem like an awards type of film/performance.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Viola Davis - Fences
Greta Gerwig - 20th Century Women
Naomi Harris - Moonlight
Nicole Kidman - Lion
Michelle Williams - Manchester by the Sea

Alt: Felicity Jones - A Monster Calls

Editor comment: Lupita Nyong'o in place of Greta Gerwig. I've not seen either performance, but 'who's more famous here' would've been my reasoning.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

Mahershala Ali - Moonlight
Jeff Bridges - Hell or High Water
Lucas Hedges - Manchester by the Sea
Liam Neeson - Silence
Dev Patel - Lion

Alt: Michael Shannon - Nocturnal Animals

Editor comment: I just wanna say, of the actors involved in Moonlight, the ones who deserve the most credit are the main character's actors. They should've been counted as 'supporting' or all three fore one role. Ali was okay, but it looked like he was picking up noms so I would've kept him in this group anyway. I would've put Ben Foster in there rather than Liam Neeson, as I did not hear anything about Liam but Ben was very showy in Hell or High Water. If anyone had seen Nocturnal Animals, which seemed to be picking up fewer awards than I would've thought, they would know that Michael Shannon's performance > Jeff Bridge's. But I would've put Jeff in because I would've been of little faith.

BEST SCREENPLAY

Fences
La La Land
Manchester by the Sea
Moonlight
Silence

Alt: Loving

Editor comment: La La Land, Manchester, Moonlight, agreed. Then, Nocturnal Animals and Lion. Alternate: Arrival.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG

La La Land
La La Land
Moana
Sing
Trolls

Alt: Hidden Figures

Editor comment: I would have probably taken out Trolls and added Miss Sharon Jones. I don't know why.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

Arrival
Florence Foster Jenkins
Jackie
La La Land
Moonlight

Alt: The BFG

Editor comment: I would've put in Rogue One in place of Jackie, just because it's going to be massive if the premiere reactions hold up!

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM

Finding Dory
Kubo and the Two Strings
Moana
The Red Turtle
Zootopia

Alt: Trolls

Editor comment: I would've added Sing as the alternate.

BEST FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FILM

Elle (France)
The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki (Finland)
Julieta (Spain)
Neruda (Chile)
Toni Erdmann (Germany)

Alt: The Salesman (Iran)

Editor comment: I would not have guessed Neruda, based on the fact that I've seen it and I would not have thought it was Globes material. I would've gone for Sieranevada instead, based on the same fact.
