The Golden Globes air live from the Beverly Hilton on NBC starting at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET Sunday. These kudos honor both the best of both film and TV in 2015 and are decided by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. After a three-year break, British bad boy Ricky Gervais returns to emcee this awardsfest which will dole out 14 film awards and 11 TV trophies. Denzel Washington is to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for life achievement.
The Golden Globe Awards will spread the wealth according to the predictions of Expert film and TV journalists we’ve polled, along with Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year’s Golden Globe winners and the more than 2,000 total Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors. (Click here for our complete predictions by category.)
Among the movies in contention, we predict “Spotlight” and “The Martian” will win two each, including the top prizes of Best Picture on the drama and comedy side respectively. On the TV side, we expect “Mr. Robot,” “Transparent” and “Fargo” to dominate.
Among those expected to present are: Amy Adams, Jaimie Alexander, Patricia Arquette, Melissa Benoist, Kate Bosworth, Sophia Bush, Jim Carrey, Viola Davis, Chris Evans, Will Ferrell, Tom Ford, Jamie Foxx, Morgan Freeman, Lady Gaga, Mel Gibson, Grant Gustin, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kevin Hart, Amber Heard, Taraji P. Henson, Jonah Hill, Bryce Dallas Howard, Terrence Howard, Kate Hudson, Ken Jeong, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Keaton, John Krasinski, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Kurt Russell, J.K. Simmons, Jason Statham, Channing Tatum, Mark Wahlberg, and Olivia Wilde.
