We predict ‘A Star is Born’ will lead Golden Globe winners for film, but it won’t be a clean sweep

A Star is Born” didn’t earn the most Golden Globe nominations this year — that turned out to be “Vice” with six bids — but we do think it will win the most awards when trophies are handed out on Sunday night, January 6. However, it won’t be a clean sweep like it was for “La La Land” two years ago, or like it was for the Barbra Streisand version of “A Star is Born” 42 years ago. Scroll down for our complete list of predicted winners arranged by film.

Our predictions are based on the combined forecasts of thousands of Gold Derby users, and the consensus is that “A Star is Born” will win three of its five nominations: Best Film Drama, Best Film Drama Actress (Lady Gaga) and Best Song for “Shallow,” which was co-written by Gaga.

Ironically, the only awards the film is expected to lose are the ones for its writer, director and star Bradley Cooper. We think Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”) will best him for Best Director, while Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) has a slight edge against Cooper for Best Film Drama Actor. But Cooper is also a producer of “A Star is Born,” so if we’re right that it will win the top prize he’ll still take home some hardware.

Three other films are predicted to win multiple awards. We’re betting on “Green Book” to win two out of its five noms: Best Film Comedy/Musical and Best Film Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali). “The Favourite” will also go two-for-five, taking Best Film Comedy/Musical Actress (Olivia Colman) and Best Screenplay. And the aforementioned “Roma” will claim Best Foreign Language Film in addition to directing plaudits for Cuaron.
