We will hopefully posting a podcast tonight with our predictions explained. So watch this space for that.
On Sunday, two things are going to happen. The Golden Globes and Donald Trump’s first speech since the impeachment trial. Why this matters is that Twitter will have its bloody meat to chew on for the day and night and thus, I’m not 100% sure it will be 100% focused on the Golden Globes. Maybe it will. Trump has such a hold over all news and social media that I expect there will be some kind of meteoric plunge. But maybe I’ll be proven wrong. Who knows.
I’ll be posting our predictions below, but first you should check out:

Most seem to think the Globes will split the top awards, with Chloe Zhao winning for Best Director and The Trial of the Chicago 7 winning Best Picture. I am predicting Chicago 7, based on the Globes’ love for Aaron Sorkin overall. But I’m a little uncertain as to whether the film itself will resonate with those voters or if something else might upset in that top category. I see some over at Gold Derby taking a chance with other movies, like Mank or Nomadland or Promising Young Woman.
