Golden Globe Predictions: The First Domino Falls Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the Golden Globe nominations will be announced. Say what you will about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and how much or little they mean for Oscar prognostication, but they represent a line in the sand during awards season. If a film or performance hits with the HFPA, it’s a reason to keep pressing on towards the Academy Awards. Globe snubs, on the other hand, don’t quite mean as much, given the lack of crossover between Golden Globe voters and Academy members. In that way, it’s almost a win-win. Still, getting in is better, obviously. So, who and what might be in line for citations by the Golden Globes tomorrow morning?

My Golden Globe predictions can be found here, so consult those, but in broad strokes: we have no way of knowing what the HFPA will do. Some things, like Hamilton being a factor here, where it won’t be with Oscar, is a given. The rest? We’ll find out tomorrow morning. Supposedly, Da 5 Bloods hasn’t played as well to voters here as something like The Trial of the Chicago 7, but it all remains to be seen. Sit tight…
