If I Could Pick the Golden Globe Winners

It’s Golden Globes Sunday and you know what that means – a bunch of celebrities about to get their drink on. Plus, ya know, win some awards, deliver speeches, and probably end up being turned into online memes for something they do when they don’t realize the camera is on them. But, mostly it’s about the drinking.

So, really, why bother taking this seriously? It’s an awards show voted on by around 90 foreign film journalists most people haven’t heard of before. If I happened to be in that select group and had the ability to pick tonight’s winner, film categories only, here’s who they’d be:

FILM:

Best Picture (Drama)

Will Win: A Star is Born

Should Win: Black Panther

Best Picture (Musical or Comedy)

Will Win: The Favourite

Should Win: The Favourite

Best Picture (Animated)

Will Win: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Should Win: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Best Director

Will Win: Alfonso Cuarón, ROMA

Should Win: Alfonso Cuarón, ROMA

Best Lead Actress (Drama)

Will Win: Lady Gaga, A Star is Born

Should Win: Lady Gaga, A Star is Born

Best Lead Actor (Drama)

Will Win: Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody

Should Win: Bradley Cooper, A Star is Born

Best Lead Actress (Comedy)

Will Win: Olivia Colman, The Favourite

Should Win: Olivia Colman, The Favourite

Best Lead Actor (Comedy)

Will Win: Christian Bale, Vice

Should Win: Christian Bale, Vice

Best Supporting Actress

  • Amy Adams, Vice
  • Claire Foy, First Man
  • Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk
  • Emma Stone, The Favourite
  • Rachel Weisz, The Favourite

Will Win: Emma Stone, The Favourite

Should Win: Rachel Weisz, The Favourite

Either one, really. It’s a coin toss for me as to who is really more deserving between the two, but both are the clear front-runners over Amy Adams and Claire Foy playing“wife behind the man” roles and Regina King in a film which seems to have gone under appreciated so far.

Best Supporting Actor

  • Mahershala Ali, Green Book
  • Timothée Chalamet, Beautiful Boy
  • Adam Driver, BlacKkKlansman
  • Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • Sam Rockwell, Vice

Will Win: Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Should Win: Adam Driver, BlacKkKlansman

Honestly, I’m fine with anyone winning this category other than Sam Rockwell, whose caricature of George W. Bush in Vice is certainly good for a laugh or two but not to win any awards.

Best Screenplay

  • Alfonso Cuarón, Roma
  • Deborah Davis and Tony MacNamara, The Favourite
  • Barry Jenkins, If Beale Street Could Talk
  • Adam McKay, Vice
  • Brian Currie, Peter Farrelly and Nick Vallelonga, Green Book

Will Win: Deborah Davis and Tony MacNamara, The Favourite

Should Win: Alfonso Cuarón, Roma
