14th Annual No Guts, No Glory – Golden Globe Edition



Believe it or not, this is our 14th year (I think) of doing No Guts, No Glory for the Golden Globes! But it has to be a really hard win to call. It can’t be one people expect to see. You have three options.

Here are mine.

1. Kate Winslet wins Best Actress for Labor Day
2. Philomena wins Best Drama
3. All is Lost wins for Best Score

    ” Kate Winslet wins Best Actress for Labor Day”

    Why not someone possible…like Dench or Bullock?

    I would pick Rob Lowe but that’s TV. And it’s nearly impossible to pick NGNG for film because there are a lot of likely winners.

    1. Best Actor Drama – Matthew McConaughey
    2. Best Supporting Actor – Bradley Cooper
    3. Best Actor Comedy – Christian Bale

    I don’t even think those are that weird.

    I agree with Antoinette – it’s a total crapshoot; anybody can win and not have it be a shocker.

    That said:

    Yeah but Winslet would really never ever ever happen.

    Upsets that could happen-

    Daniel Bruhl over Jared Leto, they loved Rush.
    Judi Dench over Cate Blanchett, they loved Philomena
    Robert Redford over MM and Ejiofor, they loved old Hollywood stars

    IMO the only true upset would be anyone beating Cate. She has this entire season in the bag.

    Sandra bullock wins best actress for Gravity. This is the performance of the year due to its physicality and the resiliency of the character, which empowers women. Blanchett was okay in what amounted to a Lifetime movie performance (cheesy and over the top) that sets women back 100 years. Banchlett will predictably win.

    Michael Fassbender for Supporting actor.

    I’m predicting five globes to “12 Years”. But this is NG, NG, so:

    – “12 Years” wins all seven.

    – A triple tie (guess last time was on Globes of 89 for Actress Drama of 88) on Best Actress/Comedy: Gerwig, Dreyfuss and Adams

    – Rush and Philomena tie up for Drama.
