One way or another, Lady Gaga is leaving the Golden Globes with a trophy. She’s the front-runner for Best Film Drama Actress for her role as a singer on the rise in “A Star is Born.” There’s a chance she’ll be upset by Glenn Close (“The Wife”), but even if that’s the case, there may be no stopping her in the race for Best Song. According to the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users, she may be the biggest lock of the night.
Lady Gaga co-wrote the song “Shallow” with Mark Ronson, Antonio Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, and as of this writing they get leading odds of 3/1. All 18 of the Expert journalists we’ve polled are predicting their victory: Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Erik Davis (Fandango), Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Bonnie Fuller (Hollywood Life), Tariq Khan (Fox TV), Susan King (Gold Derby), Alicia Malone (Turner Classic Movies), Jack Mathews (Gold Derby), Wilson Morales (BlackFilm), Michael Musto (NewNowNext), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Christopher Rosen (TVGuide.com), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Brian Truitt (USA Today), Adnan Virk (ESPN) and Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby).
But that’s not all. “Shallow” also has unanimous support from the Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s Globe winners for film and the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine predictions from the last two years.
The closest threat to “Shallow” is “All the Stars” from “Black Panther,” written by performers Kendrick Lamar and SZA along with Anthony Tiffith, Mark Spears and Al Shuckburgh. But none of our Experts, Editors or top users are predicting it. As of this writing there are more than 100 everyday users predicting them to upset, but that’s a fraction of the more than 2,100 users who agree with the consensus that “Shallow” will prevail. So the only question for Lady Gaga may be whether she should prepare one acceptance speech or two.
