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

Jennifer Lawrence, First Woman to Top Annual Box Office in 40 Years

    ” Kate Winslet wins Best Actress for Labor Day”

    Are you on drugs?

    Why not someone possible…like Dench or Bullock?

    Julia Louis Dreyfuss in Enough Said for best actress in a movie comedy

  3. January 10, 2014

    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.

  4. January 10, 2014

    Cocaine’s a hell of a drug. lololol

    Cocaine, the whole point of No Guts, No Glory is to predict something that would NEVER happen. Thems the rules of the game.

    1. Tom Hanks Best Actor Drama for Captain Phillips
    2. Greta Gerwig Best Actress C/M for Frances Ha
    3. Sally Hawkins Best Supporting Actress for Blue Jasmine.

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

    That said:
    Best Actor/Comedy/Musical: Oscar Isaac
    Best Pic/Comedy/Musical: Inside Llewyn Davis
    Best Supporting Actor: Michael Fassbender

    “Cocaine, the whole point of No Guts, No Glory is to predict something that would NEVER happen. Thems the rules of the game.”

    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

  9. Bondisteve
    January 10, 2014

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

  10. m1

  24. Cory
    January 10, 2014

    “Yeah but Winslet would really never ever ever happen.”

    Winslet is happening as we type. As you read these words, Kate Winslet exists. Kate Winslet is happening.

    1. Kate ‘The GREAT’ Winslet (Flushed Away, Revolutionary Road) wins BEST ACTRESS IN A DRAMA for Labor Day (2013)
    2. Kate Winslet (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Holiday) wins best supporting actress in a write-in vote for her role in Movie 43 (2013)
    3. wait, actually, re: sunshines message, “I won’t watch GG because Kate Winslet will not be present. I don’t care of it anymore!” – is this true?? If so, my third NGNG will be me paying a lick of attention to the awards show. ;)

  33. Bryce Forestieri

    Just saw LEWYN DAVIS and HER back to back, and they’ve done me in. I’m exhausted. For tomorrow maybe GRAVITY *not* winning anything like Picture, Director, and much less Actress. I can’t go through the backlash. Bye.

  34. John Oliver

  36. Zach
    January 10, 2014

    Best Comedy/Musical: The Wolf of Wall Street (because in an ordinary year this would be a possibility, but there’s no way it’s beating Hustle without Scorsese and script nominations)

    Best Song: “Sweeter than Fiction,” One Chance (Taylor Swift) (I’m pulling for Frozen but switched my prediction from Llewyn Davis to Mandela)

    Best Screenplay: Nebraska (because they would never. But they sure liked the movie enough.)

  49. Ian Midlane

    NGNG: American Hustle sets new record with six wins.

  50. joe

    My predix
    Motion picture drama. Gravity
    motion picture musical comedy. American hustle

  51. Viviana
    January 11, 2014

    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.

    Gravity Best Drama

  52. Joao Mattos
    January 11, 2014

    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.

  53. Jackson B
    January 11, 2014


    Philomena DRAMA
    Hayden P for Supporting TV Actress from NASHVILLE

  54. January 11, 2014


    1. HER wins screenplay
    2. TWOWS wins Picture C/M
    3. GRAVITY only wins score and director.

  55. Al Robinson
    January 11, 2014

    Rush – Best Picture Drama
    Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) – Best Actor Musical or Comedy
    Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) – Supporting Actor

  56. The Dude
    January 11, 2014

    Daniel Bruhl wins for Rush

    12 Years a Slave wins everything it’s nominated for.

    Julie Delpy wins.

  57. January 12, 2014

    Best Comedy – Her
    Best Actress in a Comedy – Julie Delpy
    American Hustle wins nothing.

  58. Simon Warrasch
    January 12, 2014

    Daniel Brühl wins Supporting Actor
    Matthew McConaughey wins Best Actor Motion Picture Drama
    Sandra Bullock wins Best Actress Motion Picture Drama

    I have this feeling that Daniel Brühl will win over Jared Leto!

  59. Jesus Alonso
    January 12, 2014

    1. Idris Elba, Best Actor, Drama

    if there’s an upset coming, this is probably the one that would have most people facepalming themselves for not having considered it.

    2. Bradley Cooper, Best Supporting Actor, American Hustle

    star power. Pure and simple

    3. Julia Roberts, Best Supporting Actress, August.


    and I’d add Best Song to U2, star power and Mandela. Seriously, how can HFPA resist it?

  60. Daniel Kenealy
    January 12, 2014

    My three NGNG picks would be:

    1. “Philomena” takes Best Drama Film and Best Drama Actress for Judi Dench (I suppose either individually would be a single NGNG pick).

    2. “Nebraska” wins Best Musical or Comedy Film (at this point anything other than “American Hustle” is NGNG in my books).

    3. Daniel Bruhl rides the appreciation for “Rush” to a win.

  61. Pj
    January 12, 2014

    1. Daniel Bruhl upsets Leto
    2. David O Russell wins director
    3. Brooklyn 99 wins best tv comedy series

  62. Fabinho Flapp
    January 12, 2014

    Ben Affleck, Best Director, Argo. (again) ;)

    3)Gravity ends with nothing.

  64. January 12, 2014
