2017 Golden Globes Predictions – Best Original Song

If there is any film category at this year’s Golden Globes where money is safe picking the upset, it is Best Original Song. This category has a lot of musical talent behind it—Justin Timberlake, Danger Mouse and Iggy Pop, Stevie Wonder, Lin-Manuel Miranda.

2017 Golden Globes Predictions – Best Screenplay

The five films nominated for Best Screenplay at the 2017 Golden Globes are all beautifully written pieces. Makes my job harder. But I think we can whittle this down to at least a three horse race, if not a head-to-head matchup.

2017 Golden Globe Predictions – Best Director

It’s the overall vision, whatever that means. Predicting Best Director sometimes feels like predicting Best Picture, and that is why the two awards often (but not always) go to the same film. So what do we do with an awards ceremony that honors two films and nominates five directors? Well, let’s see…

2017 Golden Globes Predictions – Best Supporting Actress

I like the Golden Globes Best Supporting Actress race. It is full of talent. It is full of competition. And there is no clear winner, per se. That said, let’s get to predicting!

2017 Golden Globes Predictions – Best Supporting Actor

Perhaps I am starting to sound like a broken record at this point in my predictions. But the Best Supporting Actor category isn’t even close. We have a two horse race with an unlikely chance of an upset.

Taking a look at the Best Actress races for the 2017 Golden Globes, and we finally have ourselves at least one tight race. Relatively.

2017 Golden Globes Predictions – Best Actor

The two best actor races at this year’s Golden Globes will be, in all likelihood, unsurprising. Both categories—in Drama and Musical/Comedy—are stacked with talent. But trends show that two clear front runners have emerged.
