30/09/14 xmas film previews - variuos, mkGolden Globes: Updated Film Predictions – November

We have completely updated all of our film categories for our Golden Globe Predictions.

The HFPA thinks a little differently from the Academy. It’s not really a copy/paste situation. In the past few days we have had some momentum shifts, from the strong premiere of “Selma” at the AFI Fest to the strong presence of “The Imitation Game” at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Most of our Television categories haven’t really changed. We will have one more full updated before the nominations are announced on December 12th.
