80th Golden Globe Awards – Early Film Predictions

The Golden Globes are set to return to our TVs this year after announcing their awards via a press conference due to the controversy surrounding HFPA. The nominations will be announced on December 12th, with the hardware being passed out live on NBC (and streaming on Peacock) on January 10th.

The biggest question heading into the Globes will be whether all the changes made internally will show up when the HFPA announce their nominations. With that being said, in looking back at previous years, you always know that the Globes like to have the stars show up. We’ll have to wait to see if they show up or not, so let’s dive into my first set of predictions for the Golden Globes.
