2023 Golden Globes Predictions: Best Picture Drama, Best Comedy/Musical

Winford Hunter

As the Hollywood International Push Association continues to march towards a attainable comeback, whether or not the talent and studios take part or not, the mere point out of a Golden World nomination will be helpful in this wide-open Oscar year.

As the early period precursors start off to trickle in like the Gothams and the Hollywood Songs in Media nominations, the more mainstream titles will not get its initially official appear until finally the National Board of Evaluation, New York Movie Critics and Los Angeles Critics Associations weigh in. Those could give some clues to what the now in excess of 200 member corporation may perhaps select.

We need to assume love for some of the common suspects these kinds of as Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” (Universal Photographs) and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking” on the drama side though Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” and The Daniels’ “Everything Everywhere All at Once” ought to thoroughly occupy the comedy facet of the household.

If there is a single matter the Globes really like, it is large names, no make any difference what the opinions. To not take into consideration that possibly of Harry Styles’ performances in Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Be concerned Darling” and Michael Grandage’s “My Policeman” can acquire attention is a failure to glance by its record. This is the exact team that went all-in on Aaron Taylor-Johnson in “Nocturnal Animals” (2016), and even gave unsolicited shocking mentions to Renée Zellweger in “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason” (2004) and double noms for Johnny Depp for “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Tourist” (2010), each trashed by journalists.

Even though the box office earnings for “Ticket to Paradise” had been extraordinary adequate, the George Clooney and Julia Roberts car was divided amongst critics. I nevertheless would not depend both of the stars out of the discussion in their respective comedy races.

And don’t rely out the biggest names in songs. Aside from Styles, who pens the initial track from “Don’t Get worried Darling,” it’ll be hard to resist Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Taylor Swift’s “Carolina” from “Where the Crawdads Sing” and Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick.”

The group could also embrace a film like Variance Film’s “RRR,” irrespective of not becoming the formal submission for India. The group has picked options in the previous this sort of as “Portrait of a Woman on Fire” (2019) and “Blue is the Warmest Colour” (2013), which had been not France’s formal submissions through their respective many years. Friendly reminder that the movie is also suitable for very best photo (comedy or musical) following the group amended its policies in 2021 right after not enabling “Minari” (2020) and “The Farewell” (2019) to compete in the top rated races.

Due to the fact 1990, there have been 404 Golden Globe statuettes handed out in the film classes. Two hundred 9 of them went on to get the Oscar (noteworthy: the HFPA divides its leading classes amongst two genres for drama and comedy/musical). Will that subject this time as they find redemption, primarily with outstanding figures in the awards dialogue who have spoken out versus them just before this kind of as Tom Cruise, Viola Davis and Brendan Fraser? We’ll see how it performs out.

The initial set of predictions for the film groups are underneath. The television projections will follow at a later date. The Golden Globes are scheduled to air on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.
