Hello and welcome to the movie blog of author John DeFrank - FilmZ and Guy Sobriquet Malone - Researcher


2017 GOLDEN GLOBES FILM PREDICTIONS

The Golden Globes sneaked up on my, so here we go just hours before they begin:

Picture - Drama
Will win: Manchester by the Sea; Should Win: Moonlight
The family drama wins out over the startling coming of age film

Actress - Drama
Will win and should win: Natalie Portman (Jackie)

Actor - Drama
Will win: Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea); Denzel Washington (Fences)
A competitive field where any choice would be good

Picture - Musical/Comedy
Will win and should win: La La Land
The darling of the festival circuit will pull in the most awards tonight

Actress - Musical/Comedy
Will win and should win: Emma Stone (La La Land)
All nominees are deserving, but--La La Land

Actor - Musical/Comedy
Will win and should win: Ryan Gosling (La La Land)
See above

Supporting Actress
Will win and should win: Viola Davis (Fences)
If you are a betting person, this is the lock (though Naomie Harris is amazing in Moonlight)

Supporting Actor
Will win and should win: Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water) or Dev Patel (Lion) could surprise

Director
Will win and should win: Damien Chazelle (La La Land)
La La Land hits the big four, but Mel Gibson's bid for redemption in Hacksaw Ridge is excellent, too

Animated Film
Will win: Zootopia; Should win: Kubo and the Two Strings
Both are terrific, but I like the fable-like Zen quality of Kubo

Foreign Language Film
Will win: Elle; Should win: Toni Erdmann
This award is for Isabelle Huppert

Screenplay
Will win: Manchester by the Sea; Should win: La La Land
La La Land is just too engaging

Score
Will win and should win: La La Land
When you see this you will want the soundtrack

Song
Will win and should win: City of Lights (La La Land)
If How Far I'll Go (Moana) wins, it wouldn't surprise.

Full disclosure: Where we live, several of the nominated movies either have just arrived or never will.  In those cases, I must rely on the in-depth and thorough research of Guy S. Malone, Researcher. Also, I just saw La La Land yesterday, and I am basking in the glow of its charm.
Hugs, FilmZ
