    Is Streep set to win her ninth Golden Globe in the New Year for A:OC? Her only chief competition is Louis-Dreyfus who I think will be honored in the TV category for Veep instead… I can’t see anyone else beating Streep to the podium.

    You can’t see Adams, in the arguable BP frontrunner (IMO), who hasn’t won a Globe Bafta Sag or Oscar yet?

    ^ No, afraid her time hasn’t come yet. Adams needs a big beefy role that will bring her a string of awards in one single season. So far, she’s always been the bridesmaid.

    Julia Louis Dreyfus deserves it the most of anyone in that category. I honestly don’t want to see Streep win another Globe for a role thats not her best. I do wish Streep was placed in Drama and Judi was thrown in Comedy where she would’ve added a second Globe to her collection.

    The one who deserves the Globe is Julie Delpy in “Before Midnight”. Her performance is unique.

    I love Streep and this particular performance
    which borders on drama. I dont think its Meryl’s
    year at all…so I dont see her winning any awards
    for A:OC…

    I think the globe will go to ADAMS
    or DREYFUSS…

    I agree that if they put Streep in comedy, Dench should definitely have been put there as well… Her role was full of laughs as well as drama… I’m not sure Dench’s performance is strong enough, however, to win any kind of award this season, similar to her Notes on a Scandal year… Definitey deserves the nods, but Streep’s matriarchal role is a more award-magnet type of performance with the boozy, drugged up, hammy kind of acting… Like it or not I think she’s the frontrunner; but yes I would love to see Louis-Dreyfus win for Enough Said

    Who knows honestly. Meryl has 8 Golden Globe awards so there’s no need to push her for a 9th. Her film is not a Comedy Picture nominee, which could be a road block- however, are voters going to pick who they think is competitive for an Oscar nod, or pick who they like the most? Honestly I think Amy Adams has a very strong chance to win here.

    I am seriously tired of Meryl getting nominated every fucking time she appears in a movie, yes she’s the best actress alive but does she really need more awards? she’s always on everybody predictions and they end up snubbing people that are more deserving.

    ^Agreed! For me the two that are least likely to win (Greta Gerwig and Julie Delpy) are actually the ones with the two best performances. Either would be a deserved win. Louis-Dreyfus is pleasant, but nothing special.

    Personally I’m rooting for the underdog, Greta, to pull a Sally Hawkins and win. Not only is her performance terrific, but she also is the funniest character of the category, so I mean, hopefully that counts for something.

    I think Louis-Dreyfuss could be vulnerable here since the film didn’t get nominated nor did Gandolfini which makes me think they are not that fond of it.

    How does Golden Globes voting work BTW, is there a nominating commitee or is it the same members (there aren’t that many, just like 70 or so I think) voting for both nominations and then winners?

    Holla!  The problem is she’s in a spot in everyone’s predictions (narrowing the field) over a year before the film is released, meaning other performances are overlooked and pushed aside from the get-go.  The Globes should be commended for giving nominations for some of the ladies in this category.  I think Adams will win, but it really would be something if Greta, Julie, or Julia manages to break through here, regardless if they are Oscar nominated or not.  It’s really become such a problem how predictor-y all the precursor awards have become, as if the Oscars are worshipped and always make the right decisions (riiight).  Seeing different people win used to be so welcome, seeing different performances nominated was so vital.  Look back at BAFTA winners in the 70s, 80s, and 90s for acting and many did not win Academy Awards, some weren’t even nominated, and some were pretty stellar performances.  Gene Hackman nominated for The Conversation (not nominated by the Academy).  Dustin Hoffman winning for Tootsie.  Sean Connery (snubbed as a lead actor multiple times) nominated and winning for The Name of the Rose.  And going way back Peter O’Toole for Lawrence of Arabia (awards worthy, duh).

    I haven’t seen A:OC yet, but it just feels like they really should give it to someone else. I think this would be an excellent year to honour Adams, even though Delpy was terrific, especially having watched the previous two films in her series. At this point, I don’t think any winner in this category would make me unhappy.

    Yes.

    Personal opinions & preferences aside (since they have no place in making predictions), Yes.

    They obviously love her, they love having her, and they evidently love awarding her. When an actor reaches a milestone like 8 Golden Globes, you cannot talk of “why would they want to reward her with a 9th”.  There is no such thing.
    At this point, it’s a tally for Streep, not a measure of worthiness and overdue for a 100th Golden Globe.  

    Taking other nominees into account (and the race in general), she is the default winner here. Her role in August: Osage County might not be as lauded as her previous ones, but she is still great in the role, and award worthy. Her appeal (and the support she has) is still very much alive. She is Meryl “The Big Kahuna” Streep after all.

    Her main competition here is Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Amy Adams, without a doubt.

    I don’t foresee the HFPA going the shock route and awarding someone else (Amy Adams for example). What would be the point?. Streep is the big contender this year among the Comedy nominees(Big 5), she IS the conversation when August:Osage County and the Best Actress race comes up in awards talks, and awarding someone else in that category would be a blatant snub.
    Amy might be in a Best Picture contender, but she isn’t remotely the “go to” actress when people talk of American Hustle (Jennifer Lawrence). She has no palpable buzz and percursor awards and honors to warrant a win at this stage.

    The only reason the internet forums think Amy Adams will win is because they want her to win. The same reason they thought Adams will take someones place and get a SAG nom.
