Our two dozen pro pundits predicted the 14 film races at the Golden Globes and both Thelma Adams (Us Weekly, Thelmadams.com) and Sasha Stone (AwardsDaily) foresaw 12 of the winners. Thelma was the only one of us to get Foreign Language Film right with her prescient pick of “In a Better World.” And Sasha was one of only two to foresee Paul Giamatti (“Barney’s Version”) winning Comedy/Musical Actor; the other was Guy Lodge (In Contention).
Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood), Dave Karger (Entertainment Weekly), Guy Lodge (In Contention), Steve Pond (The Odds, The Wrap), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Keith Simanton (IMDB) all scored 11 correct.
Coming in with 10 right were Scott Feinberg (ScottFeinberg.com), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Peter Knegt (Indie Wire), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby, The Envelope), Nathaniel Rogers (Film Experience), Kris Tapley (In Contention), Jeff Wells (Hollywood-Elsewhere) and Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today).
At nine were Tim Appelo (Hollywood Reporter), Lane Brown (New York Vulture), Erik Davis (Cinematical), and Chuck Walton (Fandango). Joseph Kapsch (Zap2It) and Anne Thompson (Indiewire) scored eight and Bob Tourtellotte (Reuters) got seven.
