What or who do you think could surprise us with a win. I have two:
I could see Emma Stone win the GG and Arquette still go on to win at SAG and the Oscars. Remember Portman did upset Blanchett for Closer, and Blanchett still went on to win SAG and the Oscar for the Aviator.
The other I coud see is the Apple in the basket of Oranges: Jake Gyllenhaal the only performance nomintated not based on an actual person. I could see why they would respect a performance not based on any source material.January 5, 2015 at 6:42 pm #171360
I could see them choosing Emma Stone or Jessica Chastain over Arquette, and I can also see where they would give Anniston a globe….January 5, 2015 at 7:43 pm #171361
I said Oyelowo in another thread but now I’m leaning towards Cumberbatch over Keaton.January 5, 2015 at 8:24 pm #171363
Jessica Chastain winning in supporting
Cumberbach winning in Drama ActorJanuary 5, 2015 at 8:32 pm #171364
I don’t see GGs going gaga over Boyhood and giving it 3 wins. It will win Drama Picture and Director but I’m predicting Streep for Supporting Actress.
I also think Jake Gyllenhal could very well spoil over Redmayne or Oyelowo.January 5, 2015 at 9:29 pm #171365
Not predicting this, probably more of a no guts no glory kinda situation. But what if they give Julianne comedy actress so they can get jennifer on the stage for drama actress? That’d be some hijinks.January 5, 2015 at 9:46 pm #171366
Jake Gyllenhaal. Nightcrawler is on a roll right now.January 5, 2015 at 10:32 pm #171367
Grand Budapest Hotel for Picture and Actor (Ralph)
Steve Carell for Actor
Meryl Streep for Supporting

Cumberbatch is in Drama, Keaton is in Comedy. [/quote]
Oh sh*t, my bad. I guess I’m goin’ with Cumberbatch over Redmayne (the presumed frontrunner based on the pundits).January 5, 2015 at 11:58 pm #171369
I know people are going to argue against me because of PGA but I have a feeling David Oyelowo could win for drama actor. He is British, but playing a very famous American. There could be a lot of vote splitting between Redmayne and Cumberbatch. Voters also will have watched A Most Violent Year for Chastain which means they get to see Oyelowo in two great roles. They might also remember his body of work over the years. The HFPA also clearly likes Selma even if the guilds haven’t so far and Oyelowo has been all over the talk show circuit and Brad Pitt has been helping him. If Oyelowo loses it would probably be to Gyllenhaal though for exactly what people are arguing with the apple and oranges theory.January 6, 2015 at 3:47 am #171370
I have a feeling they could snub Arquette in favor of Emma Stone who’s sooo their type of a winner. She’s a rising star, she’s well-known, she seems funny and nice and while not really a great actor, she’s quite decent. And they obviously like the film a great deal. Does anybody know if Arquette is likable?! I mean, just take a look at her. She has the bitchy vibe and this could do some damage, especially with the HFPA. Meryl is always a possibility, but she’s not winning this. And she doesn’t need it. I have a feeling she’ll be huge next year with the rock star film. This will be her Globe. This time around she simply doesn’t really have the narrative.
Lead Actor is a toss-up. Anybody could win. Maybe not Carell, but each one of the other four has a shot. I’m going to predict Oyelowo or Cumberbatch. I haven’t decided it.
Why does everybody assume Linklater is a lock? I somehow don’t see him winning here. DuVernay?
Screenplay is so up in the air. I think The Imitation Game or The Grand Budapest Hotel will take it in the end. It depends on how much Harvey wants the win here.
Score is crazy. Song is crazy.
Actress in a Comedy/Musical could be Blunt or Moore.
That’s it, pretty much.January 6, 2015 at 4:08 am #171371
Watch interviews of Patricia Arquette, especially from this year while promoting Boyhood, and you’ll see how fascinating it is to listen to her talk about the movie and the industry at large. She’s not bubbly, she’s just super real and I’m sure any other actors who know her feel the same way.
With that said, I wouldn’t be shocked at all if the Globes spoil the party for a bit and award Emma Stone’s Birdman hystrionics over Arquette. Reminds me of Virginia Madsen sweeping every single critics award only to lose to Natalie Portman at the Globes. Sideways was a similarly sized hit I reckon? Obviously not as discussed as Boyhood and never really in the running for Best Picture.
I still expect Patricia to win the Oscar when all is said and done though.January 6, 2015 at 5:03 am #171372
Norton winning over Simmons.
as for Arquette, I’m 90% sure she is losing the Globe, but I can’t make up my mind who will win. I wouldn’t be suprised at any of the other 4 ladies pull off a win
