On Sunday night, the biggest stars in TV and movies unite for the silliest and most thrilling awards show of the season: the Golden Globes.
2017 was a great year for both film and television, so the competition is fierce. It’s hard to know who to root for, and a little difficult to predict, especially because the Golden Globes has a history of being unpredictable, with some quirky choices in nominees and winners.
In movies, Guillermo del Toro’s creature love story “The Shape of Water” led everyone with seven nominations this year. Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” each have six.
In television, the frontrunners are Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” in the drama category, Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for comedy, and HBO’s “Big Little Lies” for miniseries. But that doesn’t mean they’re the only shows that will win: the Golden Globes is a mixed bag every year, so anything could happen — such as Freddie Highmore winning best actor for “The Good Doctor,” one of the worst reviewed new shows of 2017.
Here’s who we think will be winners (and who should win) at the 2018 Golden Globes:
Best Motion Picture, Drama
“Call Me by Your Name”
“The Shape of Water”
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”
Who will win: “The Post”
You can’t underplay the fact that this award is being handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press. Journalists love movies about journalists. Spielberg’s movie has a good chance to take home the top prize of the night.
Who should win: “Dunkirk”
There honestly was no better made movie this year. Everything about Christopher Nolan’s latest movie is incredible. Hopefully the voters haven’t forgotten about its greatness (it did open in the summer).
