TV

Caitriona Balfe, Outlander
Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale
Sandra Oh, Killing Eve
Julia Roberts, Homecoming
Keri Russell, The Americans

Kerri Russell deserves this for all the work she has done on The Americans, but the Globes will most likely go with the safe choice.

Richard Madden, Bodyguard

Barry
The Good Place
Kidding
The Kominsky Method
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Should Win: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Will Win: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

There is no more deserving show this year more than The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and it should cleanup although Barry could upset.

Kirsten Bell, The Good Place
Candice Bergen, Murphy Brown
Alison Brie, GLOW
Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Debra Messing, Will & Grace

Brosnahan is perfect in this role and should take the win, there is no other choice.

Sacha Baron Cohen, Who Is America?
Jim Carrey, Kidding
Michael Douglas, The Kominsky Method
Donald Glover, Atlanta
Bill Hader, Barry

Should Win: Donald Glover

Only reason Hader gets the win is Barry is nominated for best series and Atlanta is not.

Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
The Alienist
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Escape to Dannemora
Sharp Objects
A Very English Scandal

Should Win: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

Will Win: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

Versace was such a gut punch this year and considering there is no competition, this one should win easy.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie
Amy Adams, Sharp Objects
Patricia Arquette, Escape at Dannemora
Connie Britton, Dirty John
Laura Dern, The Tale
Regina King, Seven Seconds

Should Win: Regina King

Will Win: Amy Adams

Both women are deserving of the gold, but Amy Adams is the bigger name and will most likely get the win.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie
Antonia Banderas, Genius: Picasso
Daniel Brühl, The Alienist
Darren Criss, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Benedict Cumberbatch, Patrick Melrose
Hugh Grant, A Very English Scandal

Should Win: Darren Criss

Will Win: Darren Criss

This guy gave one of the best performances in anything this year as a haunting serial killer. He will certainly get the win.

Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie
Alex Bornstein, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Patricia Clarkson, Sharp Objects
Penélope Cruz, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Thandie Newton, Westworld
Yvonne Strahovski, The Handmaid’s Tale

Should Win: Alex Bornstein

Will Win: Alex Bornstein

Bornstein really is the definition of an excellent supporting character and really shouldn’t be challenged.

Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie
Alan Arkin, The Kominsky Method
Kieran Culkin, Succession
Edgar Ramírez, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Ben Whishaw, A Very English Scandal
Henry Winkler, Barry

Should Win: Henry Winkler

Will Win: Henry Winkler

Winkler gave a great moment when he won the Emmy and the Globes will love to get a similar moment.

Movies

Best Motion Picture, Drama
A Star Is Born
Black Panther
If Beale Street Could Talk
BlacKkKlansman
Bohemian Rhapsody

Should Win: A Star is Born

Will Win: A Star is Born

This category is wide open, but Cooper’s directorial debut seems to be such a large force. Don’t be surprised if Black Panther pulls it out.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born
Glenn Close, The Wife
Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Nicole Kidman, Destroyer
Rosamund Pike, A Private War

Should Win: Nicole Kidman

Will Win: Lady Gaga

The Globes wants Lady Gaga to be on that stage accepting the award. This one is virtually a lock.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama
Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born
Willem Dafoe, At Eternity’s Gate
Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
Lucas Hedges, Boy Erased
John David Washington, BlackKklansman

Should Win: Bradley Cooper

Will Win: Rami Malek

It’s a two-horse race in this category but the love for Malek as Freddie Mercury seems to be too much so a win is completely likely.

Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical
The Favourite
Green Book
Mary Poppins Returns
Crazy Rich Asians
Vice

Should Win: Mary Poppins Returns

Will Win: Green Book

Green Book is a feel-good crowd pleaser that won a lot over but does have controversy around it. Should it falter, Mary Poppins Returns should get the win.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical
Olivia Colman, The Favourite
Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns
Elsie Fisher, Eighth Grade
Constance Wu, Crazy Rich Asians
Charlize Theron, Tully

Should Win: Emily Blunt

Will Win: Olivia Coleman

The Favourite women are all amazing and they should all be frontrunners, but Emily Blunt gave the best performance of the year to me.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Christian Bale, Vice
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Poppins Returns
Viggo Mortensen, Green Book
Robert Redford, The Old Man & the Gun
John C Reilly, Stan & Ollie

Should Win: Robert Redford

Will Win: Christian Bale

Bale completely transformed his body for Vice and that will elevate him over Redford who is giving it one last go in his career.

Best Animated
Incredibles 2
Isle of Dogs
Mirai
Ralph Breaks the Internet
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Should Win: Incredibles 2

Will Win: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Seems like a late entry in Spider-Verse has unfortunately made everyone forget about Incredibles 2. Should be a win for Sony.

Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language 
Capernaum
Girl
Never Look Away
Roma
Shoplifters

Should Win: Roma

Will Win: Roma

This isn’t even close. Shoplifters is good, but Roma is a best picture contender, so it will easily get the win.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Emma Stone, The Favourite
Rachel Weisz, The Favourite
Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk
Claire Foy, First Man
Amy Adams, Vice

Should Win: Rachel Weisz

Will Win: Emma Stone

Emma Stone is just the bigger name and is very deserving, but Weisz out-shined her in the same movie to me.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Mahershala Ali, Green Book
Sam Rockwell, Vice
Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Timothée Chalamet, Beautiful Boy
Adam Driver, BlacKkKlansman

Should Win: Mahershala Ali

Will Win: Timothée Chalamet

Chalamet was just here last year and Ali two years ago. Both are terrific, but Hollywood’s new golden boy will probably win.

Best Director in a Motion Picture
Alfonso Cuaron, Roma
Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born
Spike Lee, BlacKkKlansman
Adam McKay, Vice

Peter Farrelly, Green Book

Should Win: Bradley Cooper

Will Win: Alfonso Cuaron

Just a case of the Globes not willing to give a first-time director the win. Cuaron made a great film, but Cooper deserves the trophy.

Best Screenplay
Roma
The Favourite
If Beale Street Could Talk
Vice
Green Book

Should Win: The Favourite

Will Win: The Favourite

The Favourite has such a fast-paced, quippy screenplay that is fully entertaining. With multiple wins already, this should add to their haul.

Best Original Score
A Quiet Place
Isle of Dogs
Black Panther
First Man
Mary Poppins Returns

Should Win: Mary Poppins Returns

Will Win: Black Panther

There is no bad score in these nominations, all are deserving. With Black Panther being as big as it is, they should get their lone win here.

Best Original Song
“All the Stars,” Black Panther
“Requiem for a Private War,” A Private War
“Revelation,” Boy Erased
“Shallow,” A Star Is Born
“Girl in the Movies,” Dumplin’

Should Win: “Shallow”

Will Win: “Shallow”

“Shallow” is THE moment in what will be the winner of best drama and the song is beautiful. While Kendrick Lamar could put up a challenge, Cooper and Gaga will get the win.
