    They never have been influential. Over and over they pick one winner and oscar picks another. Lets go down the list: Borehood-Birdman, 1917-Parasite, La La Land-Moonlight, etc…The differences are even more stark this year. I think last time they agreed was Argo.

    Not in the acting categories.

    Not anymore than the box offices. Promising Young Woman has the worst box office of all the movies in contention that have put out numbers.

    There are many valid arguments to make but that is the biggest lie.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    Globes as expected had a record low Nielsen rating. So SAG, BAFTA and Critic’s Choice’s audience will be extremely small. We might actually have an Oscars where people just vote without paying attention to who has won before or is “sweeping.” 

    Even if voters don’t watch the televised awards shows, they are likely to read or see who the winners are in newspapers, or online.  I think voters will pay as much (or as little) attention to the results of the precursors as they have in the past, but the low Nielsen ratings may mean that the speeches winners give may have (perhaps marginally) less influence.

    In the early 2000s they weren’t so influential

    Regardless of the scandal, the Golden Globes are losing their relevance more and more each passing year.
    They are constantly mocked and not taken seriously even by the actors and filmmakers.

    This should be their last year, they should be abolished.

    Why will the precursors not influence the Oscars this year? Is it because the unexpected contender won? The Globes has been the ones pioneering the Oscar winners for years now. I don’t see why that should change now. It’s an unusual year. Getting all time lowest ratings is expected.

    Anticipate "Hold My hand".

    Lady Gaga is a genius

    There’s a good possibility that the precursors will have different winners for several key categories. That’s how it should be.

    The only locks are Zhao for Director and Boseman for Actor. I think Kaluuya is getting closer to lock status. Everything else is up in the air, and I love it!

    Glenn Close did well for The Wife. I thought that was enough to get her to the Oscar stage. I’ll always wonder what she’d have said there had she won.

    Not to mention that her loss robbed of us of seeing her walk up the stage stairs with the long gold train of her outfit trailing behind her.

    It’s a shame that they succumbed to the pressure. They have their own criteria for choosing members. Why should a private organization be told who to include among their membership all based on superficial reasons?
