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.

SN: “Fargo” Official Reaction Post

fargo-trailerOfficial Reaction Post: “Fargo”

Season 2, Episode 3: This episode showed how fearless our main protagonist is and, through confrontation, showed us a lot about many of the characters. Still loving every minute of this exceptional series.

Season 2, Episode 2: In true “Fargo” fashion, the problems continue piling on top of one another. Still a great start to what is shaping up to be another compelling season.

Season 2, Episode 1: Great start. Still question the lack of critical thinking from Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons’ characters at the end. One thing I’d like to point out is how well this episode dealt with emotional response, especially in Kieran Culkin’s wonderful performance. Struggling to react, or how each character reacted to tragic situations emotionally, made the whole thing feel much more real.

Golden 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.

Looks interesting. Oscar Isaac has become a more commonly known name after giving a knock-out performance in “Inside Llewyn Davis,” but it’s really nice to see Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst back in action.
