73rd Golden Globes

Tomorrow Is the 73rd Golden Globe Awards and here at UK Films we have all the information you will need. At the Golden Globes there are actually 25 awards! 14 of them are in Film and 11 are in TV.  So in this lengthy article you will find out the nominations for Film only are and who we think will win the awards.

Best Actor Drama:                                                                                                                          eddie-redmayne-getty-main                                                                                         Bryan Cranston – Trumbo – Dalton Trumbo

Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant – Hugh Glass

Michael Fassbender – Steve Jobs – Steve Jobs

Eddie Redmayne – The Danish Girl – Lili Elbe/Einar Wengener

Will Simth – Concussion – Dr. Bennet Omalu

Here at UK Films, we have narrowed it down to two contenders. Eddie Redmayne peformed brilliantly in The Danish Girl whilst Leonardo DiCaprio also peformed fantastically in The Revenant, but there can only be one winner so we think the winner would be:
Eddie Redmayne

Best Actress Drama:saoirse-ronan-03

Cate Blanchett – Carol – Carol Aird

Brie Larson – Room – Joy Newsome

Rooney Mara – Carol – Therese Belivet

Saoirse Ronan – Brooklyn – Eilis Lacey

Alicia Vikander – The Danish Girl – Gerda Wegener

We think that it’s the closest award at the Golden Globes, but we had a vote and we think it will be:


Best Actor Comedy:
Christian Bale – The Big Short – Michael Burry

Steve Carrell – The Big Short – Mark Baum

Matt Damon – The Martian – Mark Watney

Al Pacino – Danny Collins – Danny Collins

Mark Ruffalo – Infinitely Polar Bear – Cam Stuart

It’s between two actors. Steve Carrell in The Big Short and Matt Damon in The Martian. Even though Matt Damon had that regrettable mansplaining incident he still seems a favourite, so we think it will be:

Matt Damon

Best Actress Comedy:

Jennifer Lawrence – Joy – Joy MaganoJennifer-Lawrence-Movies-e1428381972968

Melissa McCarthy – Spy – Susan Cooper / Carol Jenkins / Penny Morgan

Amy Schumer – Trainwreck – Amy Townsend

Maggie Smith – The Lady In The Van – Miss Mary Shepherd / Margaret Fairchild

Lily Tomlin – Grandma – Elle Reid

We’ve worked it down to the two BFF’s, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer. Both had a brilliant 2015 with Jennifer Lawrence in the final segment of The Hunger Games and Joy. Schumer was in the hit movie Trainwreck. The winner though, is had to be said well deserved is:

Jennifer Lawrence

Best Motion Drama:


Mad Max: Fury Road

The Revenant



It’s had to be said, it’s a close one. All Five are all so different but there is a winner, but we think it will be close:
Mad Max: Fury Road

Best Motion Comedy:
The Big ShortThe-Big-Short-Trailer

The Martian




Ever since the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) It looked like it would be The Martian, but that was before The Big Short. Sure, films like Joy could provide an unlikely upset but it should be:

The Big Short

Best Supporting Actor:imgres-1

Paul Dino – Love and Mercy – Bryan Wilson

Idris Elba – Beast Od No Nation – Commandant

Mark Rylance – Bridge Of Spies – Rudolf Abel

Michael Shannon – 99 Holmes – Rick Carver

Sylvester Stallone – Creed – Rocky Balboa

While Paul Dano, Idris Elba, and Michael Shannon would all be worthy winners for their strong work in 2015, the way I see it, this race is between just two actors: Mark Rylance and Sylvester Stallone. So we have come to a decision:

Mark Rylance

Best Supporting Actress:
Kate Winslkate-winslet-2-1024et – Steve Jobs – Joanna Hoffman

Alicia Vikander – Ex Machina – Ava

Helen Mirren – Trumbo – Hedda Hopper

Jane Fonda – Youth – Brenda Morel

Jennifer Jason Leigh – The Hateful Eight – Daisy Domergue

Tricky One. Never count out Helen Mirren, but that pull is likely stronger at the Oscars than at the Globes. It should be between Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kate Winset:
Kate WinsletRidley_Scott

Best Director:

Todd Haynes – Carol

Alejandro González Iñárritu – The Revenant

Tom McCarthy – Spotlight

George Miller – Mad Max: Fury Road

Ridley Scott – The Martian

This is an easier one. Sure, the best-drama winner often matches up with the best-director winner, but this just isn‘t feeling like that kind of year, with affections and voting camps split all over the place. We think though it will be:

Ridley Scott

Best Screenplay:

Emma Donoghue – Roomadam-mckay-charles-randolph-big-short

Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer – Spotlight

Charles Randolph and Adam McKay – The Big Short

Aaron Sorkin – Steve Jobs

Quentin Tarantino – The Hateful Eight

At this point, Room’s awards prospects seem to have faded considerably, so we can probably count Emma Donoghue out. I think a surge for The Big Short’s clever, whizzing, explanatory script could nab it a surprise win:

Charles Randolph and Adam McKay – The Big Short

Best Original Score:

Carter Burwell – Carol

Alexandre Desplat – The Danish Girlennio-moriccone

Ennio Morricone – The Hateful Eight

Daniel Pemberton – Steve Jobs

Ryuichi Sakamoto, Alva Noto – The Revenant

Why on earth do the Golden Globes give out a best-original-score award when it mostly seems concerned with rewarding celebrity and putting on a good show? Anyway we think it will be the 87 year old composer:

Ennio Morricone

Best Original Song

“Love Me Like You Do,” – Fifty Shades of Greylove-mercy-official-trailer-0

“One Kind of Love,” – Love & Mercy

“See You Again,”- Furious 7

“Simple Song #3,” – Youth
