an unhealthy obsession with the cinema.
GOLDEN GLOBE PREDICTIONS.

ALRIGHT, LADIES AND GENTS, IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN. AWARDSSSSS SEASON. Tune in for the golden globe nominations, who I hope will win, and who will probably win predictions featuring yours truly!!! 

This will only include the film section of the award nominees, so, here we go!!

Best drama

Argo (who will probably win)
Django Unchained (who I hope will win)
Life of Pi
Lincoln 
Zero Dark Thirty

This is a tough year. I’ve yet to see Lincoln, but I’ve seen the other four and while I think Lincoln stands a great chance, Argo manages to be epic without being too controversial, like films ‘Django Unchained’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. Lincoln might be a period piece with strong performances, but Django has proven to be the best film of the year, with Argo coming in a close second, but the voters tend to play it safe around the awards season. Life of Pi was incredible, a beautiful depiction of friendship and survival, but it hardly stands a chance against Django or Argo. While Zero Dark Thirty was haunting and tense, it didn’t top Bigelow’s last Best Picture of the year, The Hurt Locker. 

Best comedy or musical

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Moonrise Kingdom (underdog)
Les Miserables (definite winner)
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Silver Linings Playbook

This is hardly a fight due to the production of Les Miserables being so incredibly influential for any future musical directors. It’s truly revolutionary and lead by an extraordinary cast, but Moonrise Kingdom was the beautiful small film that didn’t try too hard but came out on top. I root for either film, to be honest, but Les Mis is locked as a win.

Best screenplay

Chris Terrio (Argo)
Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) (who will probably win/hopeful win)
Tony Kushner (Lincoln)
David O Russell and Matthew Quick (Silver Linings Playbook) 
Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty)

There’s not a doubt in my mind that Tarantino’s clever script featuring some of his greatest dialogue will come out on top. Highly regarded as one of his best films yet, Django is certainly his strongest work yet, critical of the flaws of America, but remaining whimsical about it too. If he doesn’t win, may it go to David O’ Russell and Matthew Quick for the gorgeous storyline of Silver Linings Playbook, featuring one of the most unique storylines in years.

Best director

Ben Affleck (Argo) (he’s earned his win)
Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty)
Ang Lee (Life of Pi)
Steven Spielberg (Lincoln)
Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) (winner in my heart)

While everyone knows Tarantino is my favorite director, Ben Affleck proved that he was great at many things this year, topping his last hit, ‘The Town’ with Argo, letting Hollywood know he’s not a one hit wonder and he’s here to stay. Tarantino might be the director of the decade, but Affleck has earned his award.

Best actor in a drama

Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) (who will probably win)
Richard Gere (Arbitrage)
John Hawkes (The Sessions)
Joaquin Phoenix (The Master) (who should win)
Denzel Washington (Flight)

Joaquin Phoenix gave the greatest performance of his career in the emotionally driven ‘The Master’, but due to all the controversy he’s stirred up, and his dislike of awards, he might not even show up the ceremony. Daniel Day Lewis IS Lincoln in his role as the assassinated president, and he’s a method actor, one of the few and one of the best. While it probably is a tight year, it’s gonna go to Daniel Day-Lewis.

Best actress in a drama

Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) (should win/will win)
Marion Cotillard (Rust and Bone)
Helen Mirren (Hitchcock)
Naomi Watts (The Impossible) (might win)
Rachel Weisz (The Deep Blue Sea)

Chastain has become a huge Hollywood favorite after her roles in The Help and The Tree of Life. Watts gives a beautiful performance, so I’m torn between just giving it to Chastain or giving Watts the recognition she deserves. However, I have to say Chastain will win.

Best actor in a comedy or musical

Jack Black (Bernie)
Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) (who should win/will win)
Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) (might win)
Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hudson)
Ewan MacGregor (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen)

The true battle is between Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper in extremely different roles and totally different situations. While Cooper handles his role with magic, Jackman gives Jean Valjean the makeover he needs. As a Broadway actor/film actor, in a Broadway play turned film, he is in his comfort zone and should win by default.

Best actress in a comedy or musical

Emily Blunt (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen)
Judi Dench (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)
Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) (WINNER)
Maggie Smith (Quartet)
Meryl Streep (Hope Springs)

I don’t even know why they bothered making a category, the award will definitely go to Lawrence. This role is just as good as Winter’s Bone, and she is a truly talented actress. She will win.

Best supporting actress

Amy Adams (The Master) 
Sally Field (Lincoln)
Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) (WINNER)
Helen Hunt (The Sessions)
Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy)

Amy Adams delivered one of the strongest female performances I’ve ever seen in a film, but Hathaway managed to move people to tears after only being on screen for a total of 20 minutes. This is her year. Hathaway will certainly win.

Best supporting actor

Alan Arkin (Argo)
Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained) (WINNER)
Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master) 
Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln)
Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) (possible winner)

All of these men have given each other a run for their money, but the real battle lies between two stars of the same film. DiCaprio vs. Waltz. While I want to be biased and say just give DiCaprio an Oscar already, I have to say, Waltz has topped himself (didn’t know that was even possible) with an eloquent badass role, and he’s still the good guy. But DiCaprio is a force to be reckoned with, I have to say he WILL WIN.

Best foreign film

Amour (WINNER)
A Royal Affair
Kon-Tiki
Rust and Bone
Untouchable

Although I’m pretty pissed The Intouchables wasn’t nominated, I’m stunned they recognized Rust and Bone, one of the most touching films of the year. However, this award will definitely go to Amour, whose lead actress might even be nominated for an Oscar.

Best animation

Brave (will win)
Frankenweenie
Hotel Transylvania
Rise of the Guardians (should win)
Wreck-It Ralph

It’s typical for the princess film to receive the award, especially if it incorporates her learning a lesson and bettering her relationship with her parents. However, Rise of the Guardians teaches an even better lesson, that it doesn’t matter what you believe in as long as you believe in something, that you’re never truly alone, and you must always have faith. In my heart, Rise of the Guardians has already won. But if Wreck-It Ralph somehow comes out on top, I can’t say I’ll mind it winning. 

Best original score

Mychael Danna (Life of Pi)
Alexandre Desplat (Argo)
Dario Marianelli (Anna Karenina) (should win)
Tom Tyker, Johnny Klimek, Rein Holdheil (Cloud Atlas)
John Williams (Lincoln) (winner)

Everything Dario Marianelli touches is absolute GOLD, but John Williams, man…..John Williams is a true legend. He’ll win by being HIM, since he set the standard.

Best original song

'For You' (Act of Valor)
Not Running Anymore (Stand Up Guys)
Safe and Sound (The Hunger Games) (should win)
Skyfall (Skyfall)
Suddenly (Les Miserables) (might win)

I’m not too surprised Skyfall’s theme song was nominated because it is truly epic and the epitome of what a Bond film song should sound like, but Les Mis is a musical and…that speaks for itself. But the sweet and soothing ‘Safe and Sound’ from The Hunger Games stands as much of a chance for representing protection, the opposite of what the Captiol wants.

HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY TWO CENTS, TUNE IN SUNDAY TO SEE IF I WAS RIGHT/WRONG/COMPLETELY OFF.
