2018 Golden Globes Predictions

Sunday marks the 75th anniversary of The Golden Globes, Hollywood’s biggest party of the year and I am here once again to lay out my predictions. There are very few heavy front runners if any in any category.

Best Screenplay
This the category that could set the tone for a lot of the movie side of awards night. I expect this to come down to two films and these two films will be scooping up a lot of awards this season. It’s very tight between Lady Bird and Three Billboards but I expect Lady Bird to begin its strong run with a win here.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
The Shape Of Water
Lady Bird
The Post
Molly’s Game

Best Supporting Actress Motion Picture
This is the one category I’m most excited for and once again it’s very tight between two nominees. Allison Janney has her 6th nomination and is looking for her first win as Tonya Harding’s mother LaVona. Laurie Metcalf has her 3rd nomination also looking for her first win as the over bearing mother Marion in Lady Bird. I may be a little biased by my fandom but I’m looking at Allison Janney to walk away with gold here.

Allison Janney – I,Tonya
Laurie Metcalf – Lady Bird
Octavia Spencer – The Shape Of Water
Hong Chau – Downsizing
Mary J. Blige – Mudbound

Best Supporting Actor Motion Picture
Once again it looks to be a two horse race, this time between Christopher Plummer in his brilliant last minute performance as J. Paul Getty and Sam Rockwell as a bigoted local police officer in Three Billboards. I think that Sam Rockwell will finally get some hardware to take home.

Armie Hammer – Call Me By Your Name
Richard Jenkins – The Shape Of Water
Willem Dafoe – The Florida Project
Christopher Plummer – All The Money In The World
Sam Rockwell – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Best Actress Motion Picture Musical or Comedy
It’s becoming a broken record but it once again appears to be between two nominations in Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird and Margot Robbie in I, Tonya. If they end up tying for this I wouldn’t be happier. But since the likelihood of that happening is very slim I have to give the advantage to Saoirse Ronan although I genuinely feel that one isn’t better than the other.

Emma Stone – Battle Of The Sexes
Judi Dench – Victoria And Abdul
Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
Helen Mirren – The Leisure Seeker
Margot Robbie – I, Tonya

Best Actor Motion Picture Musical or Comedy
This category is pretty clear cut I believe with James Franco being the clear front runner for his portrayal of the very odd and eccentric Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist. My one problem here is Daniel Kaluuya being nominated in the musical/comedy category. Get Out was a very good movie but unless I completely misread the whole film, it was in no way a comedy.

Ansel Elgort – Baby Driver
Hugh Jackman – The Greatest Showman
Steve Carell – Battle Of The Sexes
Daniel Kaluuya – Get Out
James Franco – The Disaster Artist

Best Actress Motion Picture Drama
This is again a very exciting category with very deserving winners. There is the perennial nominee Meryl Streep and other multiple nominees and winners. I am having a hard time seeing anyone besides Frances McDormand or Michelle Williams NOT winning this. With that said nothing would surprise me but I think Frances McDormand will take home her second award and I really love her but I’m really hoping to see Michelle Williams up on stage

Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Meryl Streep – The Post
Sally Hawkins – The Shape Of Water
Jessica Chastain – Molly’s Game
Michelle Williams – All The Money In The World

Best Actor Motion Picture Drama
This is the one category I’m completely out of my element with because I have yet to see any of the performance nominated. Based on what I’ve heard and from the little I’ve seen I would have to give the advantage to Gary Oldman. This is a category of all heavyweights and one new comer so it’s anyone’s guess.

Daniel Day-Lewis – Phantom Thread
Gary Oldman – Darkest Hour
Tom Hanks – The Post
Denzel Washington – Roman J. Israel, Esq.
Timothée Chalamet – Call Me By Your Name

Best Director
I have been on the Dunkirk bandwagon since the summer and I don’t see any reason to abandon that now. I really like Christopher Nolan to finally get his just reward Sunday night for his brilliant work with Dunkirk.

Christopher Nolan – Dunkirk
Martin McDonagh – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Steven Spielberg – The Post
Guillermo del Toro – The Shape Of Water
Ridley Scott – All The Money In The World

Best Picture Musical or Comedy
As I said earlier I don’t understand Get Out being in this category even though I understand the HFPA wanting to recognize it in some way. I like Lady Bird to win here and keep its momentum going right into the Oscar race.

Get Out
Lady Bird
The Greatest Showman
I, Tonya
The Disaster Artist

Best Picture Drama
While Three Billboards is more deserving to be in the comedy category than Get Out it is in the drama category and that is deserving as well. The trouble there is that I’m sticking with my initial pick for Dunkirk to win the big prize on Sunday.
