The Golden Globes are a funny lot from the strange categorisation (Get Out as a comedy?!) To The shocks you often get.
I’m not a fan of them because of this. I think of it as the equavilant Of a pre season friendly in football, damned if you do win, damned if you don’t.
Personally I’m beginning to get worried about Gary Oldman winning the Oscar but I’ll take him losing this if he wins it.
It’s also quite hard to get any value as those certs are already at low odds!
But here goes!
Best supportig Actor In A Dramatic Role
Let’s just say the best actor category is already won in this and the Oscars. The supporting actor category is wide open.
When t comes to the Oscars it could be a fight to the end between Willem Dafoe, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Plummer.
Who’ll win? Who knows but I think Dafoe has this. There was talk that he’d be in the lead actor category but with Oldmans performance there’s a lot of people running scared. This meant that Dafoe has been switched to the supporting category which could be defined as confidence.
Willem Dafoe (4/6)
Dunkirk has been the early runner but it doesn’t seem to be holding up in awards season. Three Billboards was my initial pick but I’m more inclined to go for The Shape Of Water.
I’ve not had a chance to see it yet but I hear it’s a great film that’s also a technical marvel.
The Shape Of Water (7/4)
And if the Shape Of Water wins best film, then I think it’s director Guillermo Del Toro could win his category.
Often working within the realms of fantasy, Hollywood could be about to award someone of a visionary.
Del Toro Best Director (5/4)
Another close race. Frances McDormand against Sally Hawkins. And although the Shape Of Water is my Tip for the big prizes I think Three Billboards five times nominated is finally going to get a win.
Frances McDortmand Best Actress (evens)
Best Supporting Actress
This is another close one. Laurie Mercalf for Lady Bug and Alison Janney for I, Tonya
I’m going for the later. Both performances have been praised by critics but it’s Janney for me.
Alison Janney (5/2)
Three out of five.
Roll on the Oscar nominations!
