“I’d Like to Thank the Hollywood Foreign Press” – 2015 Golden Globe Predictions


It’s that time of year again: Awards Season!! I normally only make Oscar predictions, but I thought this year I might go after some of the other big one that are in the lead up to the Oscars – including the SAG and BAFTAS. Today however, is reserved for the Golden Globes, which are on Sunday hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. One thing I like about the Globes is that it does both film and TV and is relatively inclusive – unlike, to a certain extent, the Oscars. Without further ado: (predictions in bold)
