The Screen Actors Guild nominations should give us a better idea of what these categories should look like, but we’re posting our finals a day before they are announced this time.
We usually try to bring out our final predictions the day that ballots are due, we’re a little behind this time, but we think our predictions are really strong for this one.
Here are the Predictions:
Motion Picture – Drama
Bridge of Spies
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Hateful Eight
Straight Outta Compton
Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical
The Big Short
I’ll See You in My Dreams
Diary of a Teenage Girl
The Lady in the Van
Infinitely Polar Bear
The Screen Actors Guild will announce both their film and television nominees Wednesday morning.
Usually SAG voters eyeball the front-runners, however many of them miss the late films (Joy, The Hateful Eight, The Revenant), and they usually throw us a curveball or two.
See here are our quick predictions on what will go down Wednesday morning, once the nominees are announced we will scramble to finalize our Golden Globe predictions factoring in what we’ve seen this season.
Here they are:
The Big Short
Wow. There are a lot of great film to look forward to next year. Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg, David O. Russell, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Tom Hooper, Stephen Frears, Joel/Ethan Coen, Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog, Gus van Sant, Terrence Malick, and Ridley Scott all have films in the mix.
The big story though is the release of a 40 year-old film written/directed by Orson Welles. So we could potentially have a strong line-up of contenders.
Again, this early on most of these predictions are guided by the talent attached to the project (both on and off camera), the potential release dates, and the distribution. Because it is so early we only have Best Picture, Directors, and the acting categories predicted. Take from these what you can to make your own predictions as well!

Many would have strong arguments that state that Golden Globes matter very little to the Oscar race. I think, in some cases, they matter a lot. Even since their slates started showing up more clean (No More “The Tourist” incidents) the H.F.P.A. has been given us some solid selections in each category.
This year there were a couple notable things that occurred. A couple notable films/shows that were left out of contention, and a couple of reasonable twists, and some unreasonable. So let’s take a look at these nominations and see what was good, what was bad, and what was just ugly. (more…)
Awards: Final Golden Globe Predictions
One of the most widely acknowledged awards shows will announce its nominees 5:15am PT/8:15am ET. After what we have seen with the Screen Actors Guild nominees you should be expecting attention from “The Butler,” “Enough Said,” and “August: Osage County.” Among the usual front-runners.
After tomorrow the Golden Globes Page will only predict winners of the categories and we’ll see how we did.
So here are the Final Golden Globe Predictions: (more…)
Awards: SAG Predictions
The Screen Actors Guild awards can be a little bit difficult to predict. They happen early in the year where it is hard to tell which December films SAG has seen and hasn’t seen. For example “Django Unchained” got nothing last year, because not one had seen it yet. Even though it had a very strong acting ensemble.
This year “The Wolf of Wall Street” has reportedly screened for the nominating committee, but what about the members? It is likely “The Wolf of Wall Street” won’t go anywhere here, but I’m going to take that road and say that it will get some attention (But I won’t completely fall for it here).
So here are my final locked-in predictions for SAG (with my runner-up choices):
Julianne Moore, Still Alice
Reese Witherspoon, Wild
Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl
Felicity Jones, The Theory of Everything
Jennifer Aniston, Cake
