We are predicting the winners of all 25 Golden Globe races including Best Drama Film and Best Comedy Series. Our forecasts are based on a combination of four sets of predictions by: 21 Experts (journalists from outlets like Deadline, Variety and TV Guide who write about the Globes); our seven Editors; Top 24 Users (those two dozen folks who scored the best predicting last year’s winners); and thousands of reader just like you.
We are predicting that “La La Land” will tie Globe the record for most wins by taking six of its seven races, equalling the achievements of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) and “Midnight Express” (1978). “La La Land” is tipped to win all three of its comedy/musical categories — Film, Actor (Ryan Gosling) and Actress (Emma Stone) — as well as for Director (Damien Chazelle), Score (Justin Hurwitz) and Song (“City of Stars”). That sweep would certainly reinforce its status as the Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture.
On the TV side, the Golden Globes often like to spread the wealth but this year two TV programs are predicted to dominate: the Netflix drama series “The Crown” and the FX limited series “The People v. O.J. Simpson” with three wins apiece. And the new FX laffer “Atlanta” will win Best Comedy Series and Best TV Comedy Actor (Donald Glover).
