My Predictions for the Golden Globes 2017

golden-globe-awards

As we set out into the New Year, we can be assured glam and style to be plenty in Hollywood as award season approaches. As always The Golden Globes sets down what movie shows made it and were not worth talking about for the past 12 months. There was a lot of good movies and tv shows this year that has been given the nod like Deadpool, Singstreet, Westword and The People Vs OJ.

Check out my Predictions for the Golden Globes 2017

FILM

Best Picture, Drama

Hacksaw Ridge


Hell or High Water


Lion


Manchester by the Sea

Moonlight

 

Seeing as none of these movies have been released to the general public yet it’s hard to know what is actually good or is just a load of hype. Though award ceremonies love a good biopic so I will have to give this one to Mel Gibsons Hacksaw Ridge.

 

Best Picture, Musical or Comedy

20th Century Women


Deadpool


Florence Foster Jenkins


La La Land

Sing Street

 

Although I would love to see Sing Street win it I feel this is not going to be a runner. More than likely it will be Hollywood’s favourite on-screen couple Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling with La La Land. I will still be saying a little prayer for Sing Street though

 

Best Actor, Drama

Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic

Denzel Washington, Fences

Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge

Joel Edgerton, Loving

Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea

 

This is a tough category, and again as the majority of movies have not been released, it is hard to know who had the best performance. I am going to go with the main rumors with this one and give it to Casey Affleck. His performance is supposed to be outstanding and it is one of the reasons why I am interested to see this movie.

 

Best Actress, Drama

Amy Adams, Arrival

Jessica Chastain, Miss Sloane

Isabelle Huppert, Elle

Ruth Negga, Loving

Natalie Portman, Jackie

 

As I said before Hollywood loves its Biopics and the Golden Globes is no exception. Natalie Portman is an excellent actor, she never takes on a project unless she gives it her all. I would like to see Amy Adams receive this going for Arrival though Natalie Portman playing Jackie Kennedy will be hard to beat.

 

Best Actor, Comedy

Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool

Hugh Grant, Florence Foster Jenkins

Ryan Gosling, La La Land

Colin Farrell, The Lobster

Jonah Hill, War Dogs

 

Although the favourite is Ryan Gosling, I am going to give this one to Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool was the unexpected Marvel movie that didn’t take itself seriously. Ryan’s performance as the comical superhero with serious issues was excellently executed. I normally can’t stand his movies but this one I loved. If he can win me over he deserves this award.

 

Best Actress, Comedy

Annette Bening, 20th Century Women

Lily Collins, Rules Don’t Apply

Hailee Steinfeld, The Edge of Seventeen

Emma Stone, La La Land

Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins

 

Golden Globes loves newcomers and I think this could be Hailee’s year to take the award. Hailee’s performance as a teenager trying to find her way in the world in The Edge of Seventeen was terrific. More than likely this award will go to Emma Stone but I will continue to cheer for you, Hailee.

 

Best Supporting Actor

Mahershala Ali, Moonlight

Jeff Bridges, Hell or High Water

Simon Helberg, Florence Foster Jenkins

Dev Patel, Lion

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nocturnal Animals

 

Jeff Bridges, because it’s Jeff Bridges need I say more?

 

Best Supporting Actress

Viola Davis, Fences

Naomie Harris, Moonlight

Nicole Kidman, Lion

Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures

Michelle Williams, Manchester by the Sea

 

This is a tough category but I think Viola Davis who has already won a Tony in 2010 for her performance in the same role will win again.

 

Best Director

Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge

Damien Chazelle, La La Land

Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea

Barry Jenkins, Moonlight

Tom Ford, Nocturnal Animals

 

I think this is going to be Mel Gibsons year with Hacksaw Ridge. Though with other movies by these directors already nominated in multiple categories, it is going to be a tough win for Mel.

 

Best Screenplay

Damien Chazelle, La La Land

Tom Ford, Nocturnal Animals

Barry Jenkins, Moonlight

Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea

Taylor Sheridan, Hell or High Water

 

Again only one of these movies has been released yet. Therefore I am going to the rumor mill for this one and give it to Manchester by the Sea.

 

TELEVISION

 Best Series, Drama

The Crown

Game of Thrones

Stranger Things

This Is Us

Westworld

 

The Crown was an excellent TV show on Netflix this year. While I would prefer to give this award to either Game of Thrones or Westworld. The Golden Globes does not seem to like any Fantasy style TV Shows.

 

 

Best Series, Comedy/Musical

Atlanta

Blackish

Mozart in the Jungle

Transparent

Veep

 

I am going to give this award to Veep. While all the buzz has been around Atlanta, I am not too fond of the show myself and prefer the antics of the Veeps office.

 

Best Mini-Series or TV Movie

American Crime


The Dresser


The Night Manager


The Night Of

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

 

This was the most talked about TV show of the Summer and deserves the win for their excellent portrayal of the OJ Simpson trial.

 

Best Actress, Drama

Caitriona Balfe, Outlander

Claire Foy, The Crown

Keri Russell, The Americans

Winona Ryder, Stranger Things

Evan Rachel Wood, Westworld

 

Winona Ryder performance in the instantly beloved Netflix show Stranger Things will surely get the prize in this category

 

Best Actor, Drama

Rami Malek, Mr. Robot

Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul

Matthew Rhys, The Americans

Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan

Billy Bob Thornton, Goliath

 

Though this award will more than likely go to Billy Bob, I felt Bob Odenkirk’s performance in the spin-off series to Breaking Bad deserves this award.

 

Best Actress, Comedy

Rachel Bloom, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep

Sarah Jessica Parker, Divorce

Issa Rae, Insecure

Gina Rodriguez, Jane the Virgin

Tracee Ellis Ross, Blackish

 

Julia won this award at the Emmys for her performance in Veep. Will she do it again at the Globes? I think she will

 

Best Actor, Comedy

Anthony Anderson, Blackish

Gael García Bernal, Mozart in the Jungle

Donald Glover, Atlanta

Nick Nolte, Graves

Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent

 

I love Donald Glover as an actor and even though I didn’t like the TV show, I think there has been so much hype about the series, I believe he will walk away with the trophy.

 

Best Actor, Mini-Series or TV Movie

Riz Ahmed, The Night Of

Bryan Cranston, All the Way

Tom Hiddleston, The Night Manager

John Turturro, The Night Of

Courtney B. Vance, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

 

Again when it comes to the People Vs OJ it has to be Vance. He did a great job in this series and this needs to be recognised

 

Best Actress, Mini-Series or TV Movie

Felicity Huffman, American Crime

Riley Keough, The Girlfriend Experience

Sarah Paulson, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

Charlotte Rampling, London Spy

Kerry Washington, Confirmation

 

Of all the People Vs OJ nominations this has to be the one to win. Her performance was outstanding and how she morphed into the prosecution lawyer was excellent. Out of all the nominations overall, she deserves the win the most.

 

Best Supporting Actor

Sterling K. Brown, The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

Hugh Laurie, The Night Manager

John Lithgow, The Crown

Christian Slater, Mr. Robot

John Travolta, The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

 

I think the people Vs OJ are going to be the big winners of the night and it will be no exception with Brown.

 

Best Supporting Actress

Olivia Colman, The Night Manager

Lena Headey, Game of Thrones

Chrissy Metz, This Is Us

Mandy Moore, This Is Us

Thandie Newton, Westworld

For a person who was playing a robot, her performance was nowhere near robotic. I would also love to give this award to Lena. Both actors play a ruthless women who are willing to sacrifice for their children. Who will win out we will just have to wait and see.
