This may be our second to last Golden Globe Predictions unless something significant happens.

The HFPA recently stated that both “The Martian” and “Joy” would be considered comedies. Other notable activities included rejecting Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander’s placement as “Supporting Actresses.”

We have made all of these updates. We have also done the Television categories. You can keep watch here to see if anything changes between now and the week before the nominations are announced.

Room-trailerGolden Globes: Updated Film Predictions – October

We have updated our Film Predictions for the Golden Globes. We were going to do the television shows as well, but it seems like not much has changed there.

Click here to see Movie and Television predictions.

Big steps have been made by “Joy,” “Spotlight,” and “Room.” However, there are still many films to be seen. “I Saw the Light” gets pushed to 2016, making the “Musical/Comedy” categories even more obscure.

Golden Globes: 2016 Television Predictions – September

fargo-season-2-trailerjpg-6457e3_1280wGolden Globes: 2016 Television Predictions – September

So many intriguing new Fall shows are about to start coming out, and before we know it, in December, we may be seeing some of them sneak their way into a couple Golden Globe nominations.

You have to kind of mirror the Emmys here, but the Golden Globes tend to take Television nominations in a different way. These predictions are real early, and predicting an “unseen” television show is twice as difficult as a movie.

We think that “Fargo,” “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Transparent” will all make welcome returns while newcomers such as “Empire” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” may break out. Meanwhile “American Horror Story: Hotel” will likely hold down many of the “Mini-Series and TV Movie” categories.

So here is our complete Television Predictions. We’ve also updated all of our Golden Globe movie predictions which can all be found here.

SN: “Carol” excels at Cannes Film Festival

carolSN: “Carol” excels at Cannes Film Festival

Director Todd Haynes is receiving a bulk of praise after his film “Carol” debuted at Cannes earlier today to almost universal acclaim.

There are currently 3 recorded reviews on Rotten Tomatoes for “Carol” one gives the film an “A” while another gives the film 5/5 stars.

Outside of director Todd Haynes, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara have been receiving a good deal of accolades for their respective performances. Both are strong contenders for acting awards at the festival, but also strong early bird contenders for the Oscars.

Regarding the Oscars, there is still a gray area in whether Mara or Blanchett will be pushed in Lead or Supporting. It is likely that The Weinstein Company will separate them, though both may end up qualifying as lead performances. For now, in our own predictions, we will hold Blanchett (likely the new front-runner) in the lead actress category while placing Mara in the Supporting Actress category.

Our awards predictions will be updated shortly after the conclusion of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Golden Globes: Updated Predictions – March

We still have only movie categories predicted. For a reflection of what the television categories may look like check out our Emmy Predictions.

“The Danish Girl” and “Snowden” really appear to be in a strong position, with newly added award season release dates. Meanwhile in the, very scarce (as usual), comedy categories “Ricki and the Flash” seems baity enough to bring Meryl Streep her next Golden Globe.
