Let's try to predict some of the biggest Golden Globes winners for 2021. We'll see if we're right this Sunday (February 28).
Best Picture, Drama
- The father
- Nomadland - should win, will win
- Promising young woman
- The Chicago 7 trial
Nomadland has alreadywon awards in Venice and Toronto. With her Best Actress sign for star Frances McDormand, as well as Best Director and Best Screenplay for Chloe Zhao, it's a big cry for the best picture. David Fincher's Mank is right behind and leads the nominations with six.
Best Actress in a Dramatic Film
- Viola Davis, Ma Rainey 's Black Bottom - will win
- Andra Day, The United States vs Billie Holiday
- Vanessa Kirby, Pieces of a Woman
- Frances McDormand, Nomadland - should win
- Carey Mulligan, promising young woman
As delightful as Carey Mulligan's performance is in Promising Young Woman, this race feels like a two-hander between Viola Davis and Frances McDormand. McDormand wins Critics' Awards for her performance as a woman who leaves her small town to travel to the American West. Davis est always a big favorite, for his tour de force performance as legendary blues sin ger Ma Rainey.
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama
- Riz Ahmed, Sound of Metal
- Chadwick Boseman, Ma Rainey 's Black Bottom - should win, will win
- Anthony Hopkins, The Father
- Gary Oldman, Mank
- Tahar Rahim, The Mauritanien
A fitting posthumous victory for Chadewick Boseman doesn't seem to doubt his invested performance as an avid trumpeter. Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins are distant second.
Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
- Borat Subsequent Moviefilm
- Palm Springs - Should Win
- The Prom - Will Win
As problematic as James' flamboyant performance is Cordon in The Prom, it's hard to see Borat wina golden statue on the star-studded Netflix movie (Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington). In the Perfect World, the charming romantic time travel comedy Palm Springs would win the belt and crown.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
- Maria Bakalova, Borat Later Films - should win
- Kate Hudson, Music
- Michelle Pfeiffer, French release
- Rosamund Pike, I Care a Lot
- Anya Taylor-Joy, Emma - va win
Following Meryl Streep's snob for The Prom, this category feels like anyone 's game. Rosamund Pike's memorable crook, Marla Grayson of I Care a Lot, is a formidable wild card, but Maria Bakalova deserves an award for the act of juggling playing Borat's teenage daughter. But, just for fun, let's say that Anya Taylor-Joy, who deserves to be known, will win (although she should win pour The Queen 's Gambit in the Best Actress (Limited Series) category).
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
- Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm - will win
- James Corden, The Prom
- Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton - Should Win
- Dev Patel, The Personal Story of David Copperfield
- Andy Samberg, Palm Springs
Now that we go with Hamilton as a movie-film, Lin-Manuel Miranda has a huge chance to gain even more recognition for his memorable Broadway musical. But Sacha Baron Cohen might just give it his own very different creation, putting his body on the line to prank Borat's sequel and his commentary on American culture.
Best TV Series, Drama
- The Crown - should win, will win
- Land of Lovecraft
- The Mandalorian
Despite some confusion over the veracity of its story, The Crown stepped up its game for Season 4, featuring Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher. Its richly produced world is pretty much second to none, making it our choice, closely followed by Lovecraft Country and Ozark.
Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy
- Emily in Paris
- The Flight Attendant
- The Great
- Schitt 's Creek - will win
- Ted Lasso - should win
C There's really a connection between Schitt 's Creek and Ted Lasso, but after the first full sweep of the Emmys, it would be nice for Ted Lasso to get some recognition as well. Shout out at the compulsive thriller-comedy The Flight Attendant.
Best Limited Series or TV Movie
- Normal People
- The Queen 's Gambit - - should win, will win
- Small ax
- The cancellation
The Queen 's Gambit should win an award for increasing the popularity of chess alone. A complete package with a compelling Anya Taylor-Joy at heart, Netflix's success is a deserved winner.
