Golden Globes Predictions: Film Nominations – Special Features #35

It’s beginning to look a lot like, well, awards season. Some critics groups have already announced their winners, while other groups are still waiting for their brief moment in the spotlight. As the wait for the BAFTAs and Oscars goes on, the first major televised awards show is about to announce the films, shows, and performers who they have nominated for their coveted awards. So, today, I am going to try to predict the nominees for each and every film category for the upcoming Golden Globe Awards.

Now, I should bring up that the Golden Globes are not the Oscars. They are comparable, sure, but the predictions for this show are not necessarily identical to my predictions for the Oscars. For my Oscar predictions, go here.
