Golden Globes 2018 Winners: Oprah was here

submit to reddit

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
The good:
- Oprah's speech - not a dry eye in the house!
- Look at all the different LBD!
- Natalie Portman's zinger about the all male director slate!

The meh:
- Seth Meyer's opening monologue

The bad:
- My prognostication
- Seth Meyer's jokes delivered with other people

BEST PICTURE (DRAMA)

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

Huh. They really liked Three Billboards. It just leapfrogged into front runner status? The power of TIFF's People Choice Winner!

BEST PICTURE (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

Lady Bird

I did say it was unstoppable. And I was correct, for, like, twice tonight.

BEST DIRECTOR

Guillermo del Toro - The Shape of Water

"I mean, Nolan should win, but the foreign press may want to reward Guillermo for his most accessible film yet."<-- Why didn't I go with this?

BEST ACTRESS (DRAMA)

Frances McDormand - Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

YES! I don't mind being wrong here (again with the Alts... sigh).

BEST ACTOR (DRAMA)

Gary Oldman - Darkest Hour

Finally.

BEST ACTRESS (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

Saoirse Ronan - Lady Bird

"It's Margot vs. Saoirse time. If Lady Bird is going to win its best picture category, Saoirse will rise. But I feel like Margot Robbie is a much better schmoozer, and she may have already worked her magic with the group. And it's a showier role. This is my risky bet." <-- Why did I change it last minute?

BEST ACTOR (COMEDY/MUSICAL)

James Franco - The Disaster Artist

"This one is too easy." <--- I should give this up.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Allison Janney- I, Tonya

I'm going to have to do better on the Oscars! Jeebus!


BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

Sam Rockwell - Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

I'm happy for him - an actor with so many years in the dog house finally getting his due! It also means Willem Dafoe is not a slam dunk?

BEST SCREENPLAY

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

"Gerwig didn't get a nomination for directing, so this is hers to lose." <--- Holy crap she did lose. But look at all the other people coming to comment on her behalf - Oscars nomination here you go, Gerwig!

BEST ORIGINAL SONG

The Greatest Showman

"It's Mary J. Blige." <--- Apparently does not matter to the Globes. The winning song sucks, guys.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

The Shape of Water

"I think this is a lock (famous last prognostication word)." <--- This.

BEST ANIMATED FILM

Coco

Phew, an actual 'sure thing' I got something right.

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

In the Fade (Germany)

"The Square has production tips in three major foreign countries. I'm going by the number." <--- Haha I'm the 'Alt.' queen tonight. This has to be a record for failing of some sort. Whoo!

The Alt Queen, an accurate description! I just did the tally and you had 3 correct plus TEN alts! And I had 7 correct plus 5 alts! It wasn't even close, nearly every time we differed in predictions it was in my favour!

Better luck next time. :P

I blame myself for underestimating Three Billboards simply because I didn’t like it that much. I also blame my having bumped my head before making these predictions and off set my brain. :p
