the-walk-the-movieGolden Globes: Updated Predictions – May 2015

So much is going on in the world of film right now. Many potential award candidates have wrapped production, have had test screenings, and some will be premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival which starts Wednesday May 13th.

After an impressive showing at Cinemacon, we have our eyes on Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s “The Revenant.” On the comedy side we are really paying attention to John Wells’ “Adam Jones” and Jean-Marc Vallée’s “Demolition.” You can’t really resist Meryl Streep as a rocker in “Ricki and the Flash” either. Probably the only real lock here.

So here are all our pre-Cannes predictions. We will likely modify the Oscar predictions right after Cannes has concluded and the Golden Globes predictions will follow.
