      My Predictions For The 78th Golden Globes

      Don't the Oscars usually happen around this time? Mind you 2020 was a very abnormal year, especially for the cinemas. When was the last time you saw a film in a theatre? Before the pandemic, I'll bet. Whatever the situation, film has been kept alive with streaming services and cinemas giving limited admissions. That means the film awards season is still happening and so will the Golden Globes.

       

      Once again, I have my predictions in the film categories and I marked who I think will win with a * and who I think the most likely upsetter will be with a + so without further ado, here are my picks:

      Thanks for the post I can't even honestly grade your choices as this version of the GG I was not even aware it was on and plus many of the films I am unable to offer an opinion on, and shockingly I have not even look at winners.

      As you know a very distracted last year plus for us all.

      I know what you mean. If you want to watch any of the contenders, it has to be on a streaming service.
