11 Golden Globe Predictions!

The Golden Globe Nominees came out today!

So we thought we’d share with you our picks. How did we reach these conclusions? We jumped!

Here are the our top 11 categories along with our predictions on who’ll take home the globe:

1. Motion picture, drama

“Carol” 94
“Mad Max: Fury Road” 97
“The Revenant” 83
“Room” 96
“Spotlight” 98

Mix Predicts: “Spotlight” will take home the Golden Globe!

Why? It tells the story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the Catholic church’s child molestation and cover-up scandal. It’s a story that hits you right in the feels, and no one has told it yet.

2. Motion picture, comedy

“The Big Short” 86
“Joy” 55
“The Martian” 93
“Spy” 93
“Trainwreck” 85

Mix Predicts: “The Martian” will take home the Golden Globe!

Why? Remember when people thought it was based on a TRUE story? They managed to make a movie so realistic that it fooled half of the audience into thinking it actually happened, we’d say that’s some good storytelling.

Speaking of Why.. WHY is “The Martian” in the comedy category?

3. Actress in a motion picture, comedy

Jennifer Lawrence, “Joy”
Melissa McCarthy, “Spy”
Amy Schumer, “Trainwreck”
Maggie Smith, “The Lady in the Van”
Lily Tomlin, “Grandma”

Mix Predicts: Lily Tomlin will take home the Golden Globe!

Why? This role is perfect for Lily Tomlin, her character is so boisterous, that if it were anyone else… you’d hate it. But Lily manages to make it hilarious.

4. Actor in a motion picture, comedy

Christian Bale, “The Big Short”
Steve Carell, “The Big Short”
Matt Damon, “The Martian”
Al Pacino, “Danny Collins”

Why? Two words: Glass. Eye.

5. TV series, drama

“Empire” 8
“Game of Thrones”9.5
“Mr. Robot” 8.9
“Narcos” 9
“Outlander” 8.5

Mix Predicts: Game of Thrones will take home the Golden Globe!

Why? Because believe it or not, it hasn’t won yet!

“Mozart in the Jungle” 8.2
“Orange Is the New Black”8.4
“Silicon Valley” 8.5
“Transparent”8
“Veep” 8

Rachel Bloom, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”
Jamie Lee Curtis, “Scream Queens”
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep”
Gina Rodriguez, “Jane the Virgin”

8. Actor in a TV series, comedy

Aziz Ansari, “Master of None”
Gael García Bernal, “Mozart in the Jungle”
Rob Lowe, “The Grinder”
Patrick Stewart, “Blunt Talk”
Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent”

Mix Predicts: Patrick Stewart will take home the Golden Globe!

9. TV movie or miniseries

“American Crime” 7.3
“American Horror Story: Hotel” 8.3
“Fargo” 9
“Flesh and Bone” 8.1
“Wolf Hall” 8.3

10. Actress in a TV movie or limited series

Kirsten Dunst, “Fargo”
Queen Latifah, “Bessie”
Felicity Huffman, “American Crime”
Sarah Hay, “Flesh and Bone”
Lady Gaga, “American Horror Story: Hotel”

Mix Predicts: Queen Latifah will take home the Golden Globe!

Why? It’s the first time in a long time that she’s had a chance to show how much she’s capable of, she’s larger than life in this role.

11. Actor in a TV movie or limited series

Oscar Isaac, “Show Me a Hero”
Patrick Wilson, “Fargo”
Idris Elba, “Luther”
David Oyelowo, “Nightingale”
Mark Rylance, “Wolf Hall”

Why? A show with a new cast every season it a unique situation, Patrick came into his role like he’d been playing it for years.

 

So that’s it! That’s what we think is gonna happen!
