The Golden Globes honor the best in both film and television. While the TV prizes don’t influence the Emmys which are held in the late summer, the film awards are ideally timed to impact the Oscars. Voting for the 92nd Academy Awards started last Thursday (January 2) and ends this Tuesday (January 7).
Globe voters spread the wealth in the film nominations with “Marriage Story” receiving six followed by “The Irishman” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” with five apiece and both “Joker” and “The Two Popes” with four. “The Irishman” is our odds-on favorite to win both here and at the Oscars on February 9.
Besides the big reveal of the winners of the 25 competitive races (14 in film, 11 in TV), there will be two special presentations during the ceremony. Tom Hanks is getting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for life achievement in film. And Ellen DeGeneres is receiving the Carol Burnett Award for life achievement in television.
