Golden Globe Predictions – A Final Guess

**UPDATE: Jessica Alba, Megan Fox, Ed Helms To Announce Golden Globe Nominations**

The Hollywood Foreign Press Academy will present their nominees tomorrow for 70th annual Golden Globe Awards hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  As the star-studded affair where Hollywood drinks, laughs, and wins awards together, the nominees are good catapults in kick-starting a campaign for a film or performer.  What’s interesting is SAG has already presented their nominees which makes tomorrow’s announcement anti-climatic.

I expect to see many nominations for films like Lincoln and Les Miserables.  British films and performers will get their time to shine which helps films like Anna Karenina and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  Unfortunately since they LOVE their stars, little unknowns like Quvenzhane Wallis, Dwight Henry, and Ann Dowd might all be given the shaft tomorrow but that’s to be expected.

The full predictions are down below but you can see the rankings of all the films in contention on the Golden Globe Predictions page.  It’s been a busy week here folks.

    I know the Hollywood Foreign Press likes to play with category placement for actors so they can get more people to the event … I just have a very hard time seeing Take This Waltz as a comedy. The HFP helped Michelle Williams win last year with Marilyn; but I don’t know if they’ll slip her a nom this year or not.

    But who’d take that place? Greta Gerwig for Damsels in Distress; Emily Blunt in The Five-Year Engagement or Zoe Kazan in Ruby Sparks.

  • Mikael

    I think Emmanuelle Riva will make it in instead of Keira Knightley… Although they do like Knightley… Maybe that´s just me dreaming out loud.
