Awards season kicks off again with the Golden Golbes!
Best Picture — Drama
What a bizarre spread this year. You’d think that “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “A Star is Born” would both make a bid for the Comedy or Musical category but I suppose they are attempting to be taken more seriously...
Another category where it feels like some films were slipped in to try to increase their odds of taking home a statue.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama
Ugh this is where starpower will outshine talent.
Heavy hitters abound in this category (not saying they’re all deserving) but it makes for a more interesting race.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy
This is just getting ridiculous.
This may be the category I feel has the somewhat most deserving nominees.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture
The biggest question here is will “The Favourite” cannibalize it’s own odds?
Best Director — Motion Picture
I’m still utterly confused as to how some of these films keep getting nominations.
Best Motion Picture — Animated
I never thought I’d see the year where I think a Marvel film dethrone Pixar. I suppose it’s all in the same family.
The only film from this group I had the chance to see was “Roma” which appears to be the frontrunner anyway. “Shoplifters” apparently could upset.
I honestly don’t know who I would want to win (aside from “A Quiet Place” just so it can have some recognition).
This is Lady Gaga’s to lose.
Best Television Series — Drama
“Killing Eve” deserves to win. “Pose” would be an amazing triumph. “The Americans” will probably take home the award as a parting gift for their final season.
It took me a while to come around to “Barry” but once I did I get why the hype surrounded it. That being said “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (which I’m sorry but I can’t stand) will likely win.
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Apparently to qualify for this category you must be depressing and dark? With the somewhat exception of “A Very English Scandal” which is not technically a bed of roses. I’m thinking “Sharp Objects” takes home the prize.
Billy Porter gave one of the best performances of the year, but I assume Rhys will ride “The Americans” swan song season.
Tough competition here, I dearly wish for Sandra Oh to win, but these are some fierce competitors. I’m thinking Elisabeth Moss might eek out a timely win.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy
I would love for Baron Cohen to win purely to hear his acceptance speech. Carrey could dark horse as it’s still en vogue to have movie stars switch over to television. Glover or Hader are also worthy nominees.
I don't quite understand the logic of bringing back "Murphy Brown" or "Will & Grace" and also feel like the nods are somewhat misplaced. I'd love to see Alison Brie win but I assume Rachel Brosnahan will continue to sweep even though I can’t stand “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
Criss gave an outstanding performance in “Versace” and could surprise people with a win. While I never saw “Genius: Picasso” it could be an upset win? I personally didn’t find “Patrick Melrose” compelling enough to earn an award but again, movie stars on TV do well.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television
A few veterans in this category who might shake things up, but I’m thinking Ramirez or Whishaw.
PLEASE give this to Thandie Newton. In fact how did “Westworld” not get more nominations than this?!
