Predicting The Winners at The 77th Golden Globe Awards

The 77th Golden Globe Awards air tonight, which means it’s time for us to engage in the very pointless act of trying to predict the winners in each film category as a warm up to correctly picking the winners at the Academy Awards. Predicting the winners at The Golden Globes tends to be just aimlessly stabbing in the dark, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association do seem to be a lot more concerned with getting the right famous people into a room with them than with actually awarding the proper people, but nevertheless, this site is basically dedicated to exactly this sort of thing, so we’re going to take a shot at it anyway. I’m only going to tackle the film categories as I’ve watched a tragic lack of television this year. I’m also including my picks for what should win in each category. My picks and predictions will be represented in the following, extremely complicated way:

Will Win
Should Win
