The 2018 Golden Globes Thread
« on: January 07, 2018, 11:43:51 am »
...in which we try our hand at awards predictions and lose to Cutler once again.

My predictions:
Best Picture (Drama): The Shape of Water
Best Picture (Comedy): Lady Bird
Best Actor (Drama): Gary Oldman
Best Actress (Drama): Frances McDormand (though it's practically a coin flip between her and Hawkins; that said she hasn't won a Golden Globe so this'll be a compensation prize)
Best Actor (Comedy): James Franco
Best Actress (Comedy): Saoirse Ronan (Margot Robbie could upset though)
Best Supporting Actor: Sam Rockwell (Dafoe winning wouldn't be too surprising)
Best Supporting Actress: Laurie Metcalf
Best Director: Guillermo del Toro
Best Screenplay: Three Billboards (Lady Bird could win here too)
Best Animated Film: Coco
Best Foreign Film: The Square
Best Score: Alexandre Desplat (The Shape of Water)
Best Song: "Remember Me" (Coco)

Best TV Drama: The Handmaid's Tale
Best TV Comedy: The Marvelous Miss Maisel
Best Actor (TV Drama): Sterling K. Brown (Highmore might pull a win for his performance as Jed Groff though)
Best Actress (TV Drama): Elizabeth Moss
Best Actor (TV Comedy): Eric McCormack
Best Actress (TV Comedy): Rachel Brosnahan
Best Limited Series/TV Movie: Big Little Lies
Best Actor (Limited Series): Kyle MacLachan (Winging it but they'll probably want to award this show one last time)
Best Actress (Limited Series): Nicole Kidman
Best Supporting Actor: Alexander Skarsgard
Best Supporting Actress: Laura Dern

Trump Counter: 25, including speeches.

I mostly agree, with these alterations:

Best Picture (Drama): Three Billboards
Best Actor (Drama): Timothy Chartreuse (or whatever his name is) from Call Me By Your Name
Best Supporting Actress: Allison Janney
Best Director: Nolan

I don't know enough (or care enough) to predict the TV awards.

Also, Lady Bird for Screenplay.

Three Billboards is a potential upset for Best Picture but I think TSoW's nomination majority gives it a tremendous lead. Chalamet' win depends entirely on whether the HFPA is still salty about Oldman calling them rigged (if they really were why'd they nominate him?); Janney and Nolan are my Runner-ups.

Rockwell, but Dafoe winning would be fine.

2/2

Rockwell seems like a pretty cool guy.

It's mildly amusing to see them beat around the bush about Barnum.

The Post looks good but it's not my biggest priority. I, Tonya comes near me the same week.

Predicting Sterling K. Brown. 5/5

The Handmaid's Tale will win. 6/6

Trump Counter: 8 or 9(?); depends on whether the "Preventing from making The Handmaid's Tale a reality" counts.

Damn.

3/6
It won last year. The rule is that the Globes love new shows and European productions.

Pretty sure that's just a positive common sense message...

True, hence the lack of certainty in my statement.

Also, Skarsgard. 7/7
