Golden Globes 2017 Winners Predictions

This is a close shave to put this up before the ceremony, so I'll get right to it! Purple is my friend and long time guest, Griz.

BEST PICTURE (DRAMA)

Moonlight
Alt: Manchester by the Sea

Manchester by the Sea
Alt: Moonlight

I think Manchester may win, but a part of me thinks that the Globes may want to be cooler than the Oscars, and the cooler choice would be Moonlight.

BEST PICTURE (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

La La Land
Alt: 20th Century Women

La La Land
Alt: 20th Century Women

Could there be any other choice, really?

BEST DIRECTOR

Damien Chazelle - La La Land
Alt: Kenneth Lonergan - Manchester by the sea

Damien Chazelle - La La Land
Alt: Barry Jenkins - Moonlight

Damien should win here - his is the most showy of the contenders.

BEST ACTRESS (DRAMA)

Natalie Portman - Jackie
Alt: Isabelle Huppert - Elle

Natalie Portman - Jackie
Alt: Amy Adams - Arrival

With the buzz for Natalie, it's going to be she who wins all the awards. Her rivals, Amy and Isabelle, are worthy opponents but I think with the political climate and the seriousness of her picture, she may rise to the top of the glitter ball for this.

BEST ACTOR (DRAMA)

Casey Affleck - Manchester by the Sea
Alt: Denzel Washington - Fences

Casey Affleck - Manchester by the Sea
Alt: Denzel Washington - Fences

Casey's to lose.

BEST ACTRESS (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

Emma Stone - La La Land
Alt: Annette Bening - 20th Century Women

Emma Stone - La La Land
Alt: Annette Bening - 20th Century Women

Would the Streep sneak in and win? Emma's to lose.

BEST ACTOR (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

Ryan Gosling - La La Land
Alt: Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool

Ryan Gosling - La La Land
Alt: Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool

It pains me to not put Colin Farrell in my alternate, but my reason is this: people are going to vote for Gosling, but maybe there are people out there who still mix up the two Ryans and split vote for the Reynolds?!

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Viola Davis - Fences
Alt: Naomi Harris - Moonlight

Viola Davis - Fences
Alt: Naomi Harris - Moonlight

This must be a weak category, because Michelle and Naomi are both OK but not great in their respective films, and they're here as legitimate threats. So I'm going to go with the resurgent Viola. There would at least be an emotional speech.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

Jeff Bridges - Hell or High Water
Alt: Mahershala Ali - Moonlight

Mahershala Ali - Moonlight
Alt: Jeff Bridges - Hell or High Water

The best actors from Moonlight are not nominated, which is the sad fact here. And the best sheriff last year is not Jeff Bridges. Oh well. Jeff is at least a token award for the fun Hell or High Water, one of the few non-sequel, non-blockbuster action films of the year.

BEST SCREENPLAY

Manchester by the Sea
Alt: Moonlight

Manchester by the Sea
Alt: Moonlight

Equally possible, I think. I'm giving the edge to Manchester just in case there's a spread between the two films for Picture and Screenplay. I like covering my bases.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG

La La Land
Alt: Trolls

La La Land
Alt: Moana

I only pick Trolls because it's Justin Timberlake.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

La La Land
Alt: Arrival

La La Land
Alt: Hidden Figures

Most definitely La La Land, though Arrival has a gorgeous memorable score too.

BEST ANIMATED FILM

Zootopia
Alt: Moana

Moana
Alt: Zootopia

I'm not feeling Moana, and I think Zootopia has been a surprising success. They may want to reward that. Globes is all about bandwagonning.

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

Toni Erdmann (Germany)
Alt: Elle (France)

Elle (France)
Alt: Toni Erdmann (Germany)

Well, having seen all but Elle on this list, I'm picking the funniest and most well played internationally (at festival circuits anyway) for the win.
