Golden Globe Nominees & Predictions

As we phase of the blockbusters and go into the award season, we predict who shall rise and fall at the first of the big three, The Golden Globes.

Best Motion Picture – Drama 

Hacksaw Ridge

Manchester By The Sea



Hell Or High Water

For me the standout film is Manchester By The Sea but the independent film Moonlight could cause an upset.

Winner: Manchester By The Sea
Runner-Up: Moonlight


Best Picture – Musical Or Comedy

La La Land


Sing Street

20th Century Women

Florence Foster Jenkins

It pretty much goes without saying that this one is a shoe-in for La La Land. 

Winner: La La Land
Runner-Up: N/A

Best Actor – Drama

Casey Affleck – Manchester By The Sea

Andrew Garfield – Hacksaw Ridge

Denzel Washington – Fences

Viggo Mortensen – Captain Fantastic

Joel Edgerton – Loving

For me the clear winner is the amazing Casey Affleck with his humble performance in Manchester By The Sea.

Winner: Casey Affleck – Manchester By The Sea
Runner-Up: Denzel Washington – Fences


Best Actress – Drama

Amy Adams – Arrival

Natalie Portman – Jackie

Jessica Chastain – Miss Sloane

Ruth Negga – Loving

Isabelle Huppart – Elle

Natalie Portman should be able to lock this one out but the five time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams could stop her.

Winner: Natalie Portman – Jackie
Runner-Up: Amy Adams – Arrival


Best Actor – Musical Or Comedy

Ryan Gosling – La La Land

Hugh Grant – Florence Foster Jenkins

Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool

Colin Farrell – The Lobster

Jonah Hill – War Dogs

In this category, it is a battle of the Ryan’s yet I’m pretty sure that Gosling will win over Reynolds.

Winner: Ryan Gosling – La La Land
Runner-Up: Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool


Best Actress – Musical Or Comedy

Emma Stone – La La Land

Meryl Streep – Florence Foster Jenkins

Lily Collins – Rules Don’t Apply

Annette Bening – 20th Century Women

Hailee Steinfeld – The Edge Of Seventeen

Again, La La Land is supposed to come out on top here, with Emma Stone predicted to take home her first Golden Globe. However, she’s also up against Meryl Streep (who scored a nod for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins), and everyone knows just how much award shows love Streep.


Best Supporting Actor 

Dev Patel – Lion

Jeff Bridges – Hell Or High Water

Simon Helberg – Florence Foster Jenkins

Aaron-Taylor Johnson – Nocturnal Animals

Mahershala Ali – Moonlight

With Moonlight receiving six nominations, it looks like Mahershala Ali could go home with the win for this one.


Best Supporting Actress

Naomie Harris – Moonlight

Michelle Williams – Manchester By The Sea

Nicole Kidman – Lion

Octavia Spencer – Hidden Figures

Viola Davis – Fences

Here’s to Viola Davis for Fences, though a Michelle Williams win wouldn’t be a huge surprise.

Best Original Score: Johan Johansson – Arrival

Best Foreign Language Film: Elle

Best Original Song: City Of Stars – Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling
