The Golden Globe Awards are of course tomorrow night. Typically I'll throw in my two cents and list my predictions. This year is no different. I'll rank Meryl's category and then just list who I think will win in some other major film races.
Actress in a Supporting role
1. Patricia Arquette (Boyhood)
2. Emma Stone (Birdman)
3. Meryl Streep (Into the Woods)
4. Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game)
5. Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year)
Best Picture Drama: Boyhood
Best Picture Musical/Comedy: Birdman
Best Director: Richard Linklater (Boyhood)
Best Actress Drama: Julianne Moore (Still Alice)
Best Actor Drama: Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything)
Best Actress Musical/Comedy: Julianne Moore (Maps to the Stars)
Best Actor Musical/Comedy: Michael Keaton (Birdman)
Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)
This is probably Meryl's only chance at an award this season, and it's a long shot, but stranger things have happened. I'd love to see Emily Blunt take home the trophy for Musical/Comedy Actress, but I'm predicting Julianne Moore to take BOTH lead acting categories. Has that ever happened? Kate Winslet won Drama Actress and Supporting Actress six years ago, but I'm not sure anyone has won both leads. If Florence Foster Jenkins somehow gets released by the end of next year could we see Meryl in Moore's place for both Florence and Ricki and the Flash? Never know!
Oh, and anyone think HBO has hired a new director for Master Class?!?! I'm probably the only person in the world who's holding on to that one, but until I hear confirmation otherwise or Meryl starts filming a different project, I'll carry the torch of hope. Enjoy the Globes.
