Golden Globes 2016: PREDICTIONS/NOMINEES


We are going for broke this year, predicting unexpected winners in Rami Malek (Mr Robot), Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex Girlfriend), and Lady Gaga (AHS: Hotel). Also, we are putting our money again to Steve Carrell (The Big Short). And everything, all that we have and more, for Ricky Gervais’ definitive hosting comeback.

Here are our predictions:

Best Performance in a Motion Picture – Drama 

Actor:
Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant as Hugh Glass 

Actress
Brie Larson – Room as Joy “Ma” Newsome 

DiCaprio, they say is long overdue, but how could anyone say an individual is more deserving than the eventual winner is purely subjective. His performance in The Revenant, is a hard sell, but in the year of which a leading male contender is seemingly uncontested, we can’t seem to place anyone other than Leo in the front. 

Brie Larson’s profoundly layered and unpredictably nuanced performance as a young mother trapped in a garden shed with her sired child is almost unmatched. No matter how ostensible Cate Blanchett’s performance is in Todd Hayne’s Carol, we can’t seem to shake off the fact that she has won too many recently, and the Globes is known for giving more chances to newbies and up-and-rising ladies. 

Best Performance in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy 

Actor
Steve Carell – The Big Short as Mark Baum 

Actress
Amy Schumer – Trainwreck as Amy Townsend 

We believe that Steve Carrell’s unfortunate lost last year at the Oscars is highly compensating for a Golden Globe win this year. This time, in a genre he is very much well known of. Amy Schumer’s verve-euphoria leading performance in Trainwreck is almost Oscar-worthy, the critics have spoken. We believe she has the Globe in her bag. 

Best Supporting Performance in a Motion Picture 

Supporting Actor
Sylvester Stallone – Creed as Rocky Balboa 

Supporting Actress
Helen Mirren – Trumbo as Hedda Hopper 

The supporting performance category is always the devil’s trick. There seems to be a formula, but we can’t fully decipher the ingredients. But one thing is certain in the winners’ equation: The Golden Globes always give it to veteran actors who are as much a co-leading performers in the bright spotlight in any given critically acclaimed films, regardless of niche or genre. 


Best Motion Picture 

Drama: SPOTLIGHT 
Musical or Comedy: THE BIG SHORT 

Spotlight is that awards baiting film that in the recent derbies have been courting voters to respond almost unanimously: controversial themes, great ensemble cast, and intricate plotting and narrative styles with postmodern approaches. 


The Big Short makes a great ensemble film for a comedy headlined by both comedic and dramatic actors in a screenplay written to perfection, and a cinematic execution that reflects the biting modes of the time. 

Here are the other sensational predictions for the other categories and divisions: 

Best Director
George Miller – Mad Max: Fury Road
