Golden Globes 2019

This Sunday will see the Hollywood Foreign Press Association choose the winners at the 76th Golden Globes, honoring the best in film and American television during 2018. The ceremony (complete with much drinking) will be once again held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles with Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh hosting the show.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at who is nominated, who we would like to see win and who we think will win.

Best Motion Picture – Drama

Black Panther
BlacKkKlansman
Bohemian Rhapsody
If Beale Street Could Talk
A Star Is Born

I liked Black Panther, it was great to see BlacKkKlansman nominated, loved Bohemian Rhapsody and would like to see it win, but the award goes to the straight,  white guy for, A Star Is Born.

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy

Crazy Rich Asians
The Favourite
Green Book
Mary Poppins Returns
Vice

This ones a toughie with 5 solid nominees – the Globe could go to any of them. I’d like to see it go to Vice, but I think this one goes to  Green Book, even if it isn’t really a comedy.

Best Director, Motion Picture

Adam McKay, “Vice”
Alfonso Cuarón, “Roma”
Bradley Cooper, “A Star Is Born”
Peter Farrelly, “Green Book”
Spike Lee, “BlacKkKlansman”

Although I’d like to see Peter Farrelly take home the Globe, I think the HFP go with the “Foreign” in their name and give the award to Alfonso Cuarón – though Bradley Cooper would get the Oscar (!).
