75th Golden Globe Awards: My Predictions

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards is coming this Sunday, January 7. Different awards show enthusiasts are discussing about their predictions on the first major awards ceremony this season. This has been considered as one of the toughest awards season in recent years because there is no assured frontrunner up to this point in all major categories. Maybe the Hollywood Foreign Press Association could help us cast our predictions. Anyways, I’m going to share to you all my predictions. Since we’re on a television website, I will mainly focus on the television categories of the ceremony.

In the Best Drama Series, I think it is an easy bet to predict The Handmaid’s Tale to win. The HFPA loves to award new shows every year. They don’t usually award the long-running shows for some reason. They love to reward what is new. Since the Hulu series is the only new show in the category, it is easy to say that it shall win the Best Drama Series. For Best Musical or Comedy Series, there are three news shows battling for the prize against a long running show and a newly revived classic. Will and Grace has never won the category so they might award it to them, but statistics said otherwise. As I’ve mentioned, they love to award new shows. My prediction in that category is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It is simply because, out of all three new shows in the category, it is the only one from Amazon. The HFPA loves that streaming service for some reason. They have awarded Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle in that category. Since they clearly love Amazon, it is safe to say that the new Amy Sherman-Palladino dramedy could easily win that prize. For Best Miniseries or TV Movie, the safest prediction here has to be Big Little Lies. No more discussions needed.

For Best Lead Actor in a Drama, in keeping with the tradition of awarding someone from a new show, the prize could go down to Jason Bateman (Ozark) or Freddie Highmore (The Good Doctor). If you will look at the winners in the past years, it usually goes to someone with a big name. So, my money is on Bateman with Highmore as Plan B. Bateman is a bigger name and I see the HFPA awarding him based on that even though Highmore gave a better performance and his show is more popular. We shouldn’t still exclude Highmore since he’s British and he can appeal to the voters. For the Lead Actress, my money is on Elisabeth Moss. If The Handmaid’s Tale could win Best Drama, it should win an acting award as well and it is safe to say that it could simply go to Moss. The only threats for her are Katharine Langford (13 Reasons Why) and a more bigger name, Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Deuce).

For Best Lead Actor in a Comedy, the safest prediction in this category has to be Kevin Bacon for I Love Dick. As I’ve mentioned, they love to award someone with a bigger name and on a new show. Bacon definitely qualifies both. The only threat on his win has to be Eric McCormack for Will and Grace. He might be from a long-running show but he has hosted their anniversary special together with Debra Messing and he has been campaigning and joking about how the show has never won any Golden Globe. They might finally give the show an overdue win through him. For Lead Actress, if The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the safe bet to win Best Musical or Comedy Series, perhaps Rachel Brosnahan is also safe to predict to win the category as the show’s acting win. The only threat for her is either Alison Brie (GLOW) or Frankie Shaw (SMILF) or let’s even consider Pamela Adlon (Better Things).

For Lead Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie, my prediction here is Robert De Niro for The Wizard of Lies. He has the biggest name in the category and his last win was for Raging Bull which is a long time ago. Perhaps they could finally award him again. It could also go to Ewan McGregor for Fargo who has never won a Golden Globe. We should also consider him. He’s also someone with a bigger name. For Lead Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie, I think the safest prediction here is Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies). She is beloved by the HFPA and her performance on the show has been praised by many so there is no wonder if she wins. But, if vote splitting ever occur, prepare yourselves for a possible Jessica Biel win. Biel is also someone that the HFPA might love.

For the Supporting Actor category, my prediction here is Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies). The reason is because I noticed a pattern that the HFPA loves to award a foreign actor. I mean, last year, they awarded it to Hugh Laurie (The Night Manager) over John Lithgow (The Crown). Skarsgard is the one qualified here as well as David Thewlis for Fargo. Since Big Little Lies has more buzz, Skarsgard has the edge. But, we shouldn’t shut out David Harbour for his unforgettable performance in the second season of Stranger Things. He might upset over those two. For Supporting Actress, the safest prediction here is Laura Dern (Big Little Lies). The HFPA loves Dern as she was a Miss Golden Globe before. If it will not be Dern, it could also go to another bigger name which is Michelle Pfeiffer (The Wizard of Lies) or even her co-star Shailene Woodley who they have nominated before for her supporting role on The Descendants.

In the film categories, I won’t give my detailed predictions. All I can say is that prepare for possible Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri sweep. Word is that the HFPA loves the film so much. We should also consider The Post given how star studded the film is. A lot can happen at the Golden Globes. We should except one category that would surprise us like when Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals) won Best Supporting Actor last year over eventual Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. I wonder what category would it be this year. That would open some possible discussion online. How about you? What are your Golden Globes predictions?
