2020 Golden Globe Predictions

Updated February 26th, 2021

The Queen's Gambit (Netflix)

We think the category here comes down to Anya Taylor-Joy versus Shira Haas. Both young stars have come in like wrecking balls with their Netflix series, and both stand as representations for their series overall. A potential split may happen here, with one of the ladies winning this category, while the other sees their series win the big prize. For now we’re leaning towards recency, with Taylor-Joy pulling off the win, and Haas as the potential spoiler. 

1. Anya Taylor-Joy - The Queen’s Gambit

Orphaned at the tender age of nine, prodigious introvert Beth Harmon discovers and masters the game of chess in 1960s USA. But child stardom comes at a price.

2. Shira Haas - Unorthodox

Story of a young ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman who flees her arranged marriage and religious community to start a new life abroad.

3. Nicole Kidman - The Undoing

A modern twist to a classical "whodunnit" tale, when the life of a wealthy New York therapist turns upside down after she and her family get involved with a murder case.

4. Cate Blanchett - Mrs. America

Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly leads an unexpected fight against the Equal Rights Amendment movement during the 1970s.

5. Daisy Edgar Jones - Normal People

Follows Marianne and Connell, from different backgrounds but the same small town in Ireland, as they weave in and out of each other's romantic lives.
