Tonight are the 2017 Golden Globes, and all I’m asking for is Ryan Gosling to finally get the Globe he deserves. Here are our predictions:
We’ll start off with the movie categories, then get into TV.
Best Motion Picture Drama- “Moonlight” but “Manchester By The Sea” could also pull in a win.
Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama – Casey Affleck, “Manchester By The Sea”
Best Motion Picture Comedy/Musical- “La La Land”
Best Director – Damien Chazelle, “La La Land”
Best Original Song – “City of Stars”
Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture Drama – Viola Davis – “Fences” -but if she’s lucky Michelle Williams – “Manchester By The Sea” – could take it.
Best Actress in a Drama – Natalie Portman, “Jackie”
Best Supporting Actor in a Drama – This could go either way, I think Dev Patel – “Lion” – and Aaron Taylor-Johnson – “Nocturnal Animals” – both have good chances of winning.
Best Original Score – “La La Land”
Best Actress in a Motion Pictire Comedy/Musical – Emma Stone, “La La Land”
Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy/Musical – Ryan Gosling
Best Screenplay – I think any of the nominees could take this one, but I’m rooting for “La La Land”.
Best Animated Feature – “Zootopia”
Best Foreign Language Film – “Elle”
With the television categories, at this year’s Golden Globes, some of the categories could definitely go a lot of directions, with also plenty of people deserving of a win.
Best Television Series, Drama – “The Crown”
It’s nice to continually see fresh shows taking up most of nominees in this category, with “Game of Thrones” being the only returning show. That also means the HFPA could be looking to honor any of these shows. Even “Game of Thrones” could pull out a win. The HBO drama has never won in this category, but the most recent sixth season is regarded as the show’s best. Regardless, I really feel like the award will go to either “Westworld” or “The Crown,” but I’ll give “The Crown” the slight edge.
Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy – “Atlanta”
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television – “The People vs. OJ Simpson: “American Crime Story”
Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Drama – Billy Bob Thornton, “Goliath,” but don’t be surprised if Matthew Rhys pulls off a win.
Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama – Winona Ryder, “Stranger Things”
This is definitely a competitive category, but I have a feeling that Winona Ryder will come out on top. I could be completely wrong about that, however, as Evan Rachel Wood, “Westworld,” Claire Foy, “The Crown,” and Keri Russell, “The Americans,” are all very viable options as well.
Best Performance By an Actress in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy – Issa Rae, “Insecure”
Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy – Donald Glover, “Atlanta”
Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture – Courtney B. Vance, “The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story”
With the momentum of “The People vs. OJ Simpson,” in general, and the Emmy win, this seems really likely, but a win for Tom Hiddleston, “The Night Manager” isn’t entirely unlikely. Some expect a situation similar to Oscar Isaac, “Show Me a Hero,” who was shut out of the Emmys after the Golden Globes win.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television – Sarah Paulson, “The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.”
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television – John Lithgow, “The Crown”, but this is also seems to be a three-way race between him, Sterling K. Brown, “The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story”, and Hugh Laurie, “The Night Manager.”
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television – Thandie Newton, “Westworld,” but don’t count out Lena Headey, “Game of Thrones.”
