Golden Globes: Final Predictions
“American Hustle” will win big tonight. At least that’s what we’re predicting. It’s been a long time since the Golden Globes have had so many categories that could go either direction. “Gravity” vs. “12 Years a Slave” will be the biggest rivalry of the night.
Both Television and Film Nomination Predictions are listed below.
So here are our predictions and odds for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards:
Film: 1st Annual M10 Nominations
VIDEO GAME and TELEVISION nominations will be announced before the end of the weekend. Here are the first annual M10 nominees for film.
Gravity leads with 7 nominations. Her follows with 6 nominations. American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street follow with 5 nominations.

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: Are NYFCC and NBR winners “Her” and “American Hustle destined for gold?
Full Chart of winners after the jump.
It’s not really a rare occurrence that the New York Film Critics Association and the National Board of Review disagree with each other. They are usually the first precursors of the year, and truthfully they often mean very little for later ceremonies. Still, these decisions can have factors in the race to the Oscars.
Yesterday prognosticators were blindsided by “American Hustle” not only winning the NYFCC’s coveted best picture title, but also winning awards for its screenplay and Jennifer Lawrence’s supporting performance. Many had predicted it’d have some success with awards, but not that it’d breakthrough critical darlings “12 Years a Slave” and “Gravity.” Early consensus has stated that the film is good, but not that good.
Oscar: The 9 films that could win “Best Picture”
This list won’t just be the top 9 films on the Best Picture prediction page. It also won’t be the 9 I think will make it with nominations (though very possible). Many other films not on the list could be nominated, but won’t compete for the win, the same way “The Blind Side” or “District 9” didn’t compete in 2010 and how “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” didn’t compete in 2011.
At this point in the race we have seen all but four of the major contenders. We, as a film-going audience, haven’t seen them, but critics have, and we have been given a general consensus on the film.
So here are the top 9, possible Oscar Winners. I can guarantee one of these nine films will be our Oscar Best Picture winner.
Summary: A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly-purchased operating system that’s designed to meet his every need.
Status: It wasn’t until the trailer was announced that anyone thought this film was going to even be done this year. Writer/Director Spike Jonze (who is notorious for spending long hours in an edit room) has made a film with a bizarre premise, the trailer looks like the film has a lot to say and it will now close the New York Film Festival with a push from executives who are confident in the quality of the film and its award chances.
