Experts Golden Globes predictions shocker: Sandra Bullock over Cate Blanchett for Drama Actress

While most of our Experts expect Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine“) to win the Best Actress Oscar, an overwhelming majority are backing Sandra Bullock (“Gravity“) to take home the Golden Globe for Drama Actress.

With seven Experts in Bullock’s corner, she has leading odds of 17 to 10 while Blanchett, with the support of just two Experts, has odds of 13 to 5. See the Experts’ latest rankings here.

Bullock won this award with her only previous bid four years ago for “The Blind Side” and then repeated at the Oscars. Surprisingly, this queen of the rom/coms has lost all three of her Comedy/Musical Actress races: for “The Proposal,” also in 2009, to Globes favorite Meryl Streep (“Julie and Julia”); for “Miss Congeniality” in 2001 to Renee Zellweger (“Nurse Jackie”); and for “While You Were Sleeping” in 1996 to Nicole Kidman (“To Die For”).

Blanchett won this award with her first bid in 1998 for “Elizabeth” and contended in this category twice more, losing for “Veronica Guerin” in 2003 to eventual Oscar champ Charlize Theron (“Monster”) and for “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” in 2007 to Julie Christie (“Away From Her”).
