    Hello guys,

    I just wanted to check your opinion on this: why is almost nobody predicting “Three Billboards” to win Drama at the GG?

    In my opinion the HFPA quite like the movie (6 noms and strong chance of
    winning with McDormand and on Screenplay) and I see both “Dunkirk” and “The Post” quite weak in the other top categories.

    I understand “TSOW” could be the frontrunner, but I see a possible scenario with “TSOW” winning with Hawkins and Del Toro and “3B” winning Best Drama and Screenplay.

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Because Frances McDormand projects don’t have a hot history at the Globes (see the Fargo and Olive Kittredge shutouts).

    Because the “experts” have been slow on 3B all year.

    They really have no clue. Wait until 3B has a “shocking” win.
    SAG domination was just the beginning…

    I HATED Three Billboards so much I am one of the only people on the planet who will argue it is not Oscar-worthy, but Razzie-worthy. With that said, I’ve been predicting Frances McDormand and the film itself in Drama Picture since the beginning.

    I still have Lady Bird winning Screenplay. I don’t think the Directing snub hurts it that badly. Martin McDonagh could win for Three Billboards there too, but for now I’m predicting Gerwig to win that as a sort of consolation prize for her snub in Directing, which received a ton of mainstream backlash.

    You can’t let your opinions negatively influence your predictions, you have always got to be careful about that sort of thing.

    Yeah was not a fan of Three Billboards myself really outside of Frances and Sam.

    I agree with this, I can see it perfectly happening. Although with Lady Bird I’m a little confused: I really think Robbie could upset, heck, I even think that Get Out could win Comedy/Musical.

    In Drama I really think it’s “TSOW” Vs. “3B”, kind of like in Best Drama Actress. Not sure about which one will prevail. Sometimes I think “TSOW” could sweep.

    It having some comedic elements may hurt it when you have 100% dramatic films like The Shape of water and Dunkirk in the same category. On the HFPA never really liking McDormand, I agree with that. You would think she would’ve won a GG already with Fargo or Olive Kitteridge, but no. With that being said, I do have her prevailing in Drama Actress by the skin of her teeth over Hawkins.
