2015 Golden Globes Nominations Predictions


The ultra-prestigious and never ridiculous Hollywood Foreign Press Association is on the cusp of announcing its nominees for the 2015 Golden Globes. We should take these nominations very seriously, as the many, many dedicated and serious-minded members of this fine organization consider only the artistic merits of each film, performance, and craft achievement in a given year. That is to say, their choices matter a great deal and are perhaps objectively the film world’s greatest offerings.

I jest, of course, but it is a great deal of fun trying to predict what stars will attract the HFPA’s gaze this year. I’m expecting a lot from Gone Girl and Into the Woods, which have both been mostly absent from the circuit so far. But we’ll find out for sure soon.

    I’m really hoping Begin Again squeezes in Musical or Comedy. It’s a long shut, but both Ruffalo and Knightley will already be nominated for something, why not give them multiples? lol

      Doesn’t seem out of the question to me, especially Knightley as that category is super thin. Haven’t seen the film yet, though, so I can’t say if that’d be a good inclusion or not 🙂

    Do you think they’ll put something ala Pia Zadora or…. The Tourist?

      Seems unlikely as it’s a relatively deep year in Musical/Comedy categories, but the precedent is certainly there haha.
