My 2018 Golden Globe predictions -- the one I think they’re going to give the awards to, not necessarily my personal picks!
(The Golden Globes will be broadcast from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, Jan. 7th at 8/7c on NBC. Seth Meyers will host, and Oprah Winfrey will accept the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award... )
And here are my picks ......
Best Motion Picture, Drama - THE SHAPE OF WATER (I’d probably would pick “Call Me By Your Name” or “The Post”) Best Actress, Motion Picture, Drama - SALLY HAWKINS, “The Shape of Water” (I wouldn’t mind Meryl Streep or Michelle Williams taking it, but Frances McDormand really deserves among the others) Best Actor, Motion Picture, Drama - GARY OLDMAN, “Darkest Hour” (No doubt he will win both here and the Oscar!) Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical - LADY BIRD (strongest and most popular contender) Best Actress, Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical - SAOIRSE RONAN, “Lady Bird” (who else? .. i don’t see any from the others taking this ..) Best Actor, Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical - JAMES FRANCO, “The Disaster Artist” (I would go for Ansel Egort just because I love this guy .. Daniel Kaluuya also deserves this) Best Supporting Actor, Motion Picture - WILLEM DAFOE (although I think Sam Rockwell and/or Christopher Plummer also deserve this) Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture - ALLISON JANNEY, “I, Tonya” (I would pick Hong Chau for this, she’s truly remarkable in “Downsizing”) Best Director - GUILLERMO DEL TORO, “The Shape of Water” (he deserves it, although I’m also impressed with Ridley Scott and Christopher Nolan) Best Screenplay - THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI (deserving! .. “The Shape of Water” also has a shot ..)
Best Television Series, Drama - THE HANDMAID’S TALE Best Actress, Television Series, Drama - CLAIRE FOY, “The Crown” (although, Elizabeth Moss from “The Handmaid’s Tale” or Maggie Gyllenhall from “The Deuce” may take it ..) Best Actor, Television, Drama - STERLING K. BROWN (a favorite but I’d like to see Jason Bateman of “Ozark” or Freddie Highmore of “The Good Doctor” take this now ..) Best Television Series, Comedy - THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL (.. or “Will & Grace” will?) Best Actress, Television Series, Comedy - RACHEL BROSNAHAN “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (I have no idea but she seems to be the best one I think they would give this award to ..) Best Actor, Television Series, Comedy - ERIC MCCORMACK, “Will & Grace” ( ... Aziz Ansari of “Master of None” second pick? ..) Best Limited Series or TV Movie - BIG LITTLE LIES (no competition?) Best Actor, Limited Series or TV Movie - maybe KYLE MACLACHLAN? (I like Jude Law in “The Young Pope”) Best Actress, Limited Series or TV Movie - NICOLE KIDMAN, “Big Little Lies” (any of the contenders deserve to win and this category is tough!) Best Supporting Actress, Television Series - LAURA DERN, “Big Little Lies” (.. I’d go for Ann Dowd, too.. ) Best Supporting Actor, Television Series - ALEXANDER SKARSGARD, “Big Little Lies” (.. just deserving!)
