Fearless Golden Globes Film Predictions, from Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon to Jennifer Lawrence vs. Amy Schumer

Fearless Golden Globes Film Predictions, from Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon to Jennifer Lawrence vs. Amy Schumer

No matter who wins at the Golden Globes Sunday night, Hollywood will be reveling all weekend, both leading up to the star-studded live awards show hosted by an unfettered Ricky Gervais, and after, as the winners move from party to party through the Beverly Hilton to celebrate —and lick their wounds. Leonardo DiCaprio will not only celebrate his sure win for “The Revenant” at the Fox party (where comedy contender Jennifer Lawrence will be on hand), but always hangs with his peeps at the Weinstein celebration as well (partnered with Netflix this year). Universal will host comedy contender Amy Schumer, who may beat Lawrence, who has earned four Globe nominations and two wins in recent years. Warner Bros/InStyle is often the last stop of the night, as they not only offer Godiva chocolates but good dancing. And everyone in film and TV gathers by the covered Hilton pool for the HBO festivities. 

Herewith our fearless predictions (TV will be separate). Check my votes at Gold Derby to see a more detailed ordering of my predictions.

Lawrence is excellent in Joy but the movie really let her down. Thought this would be the year of Fassbender, but no chance with that unbelievable performance from DiCaprio.


Carol deserves to win several awards. Your predictions are lacking….Spotlight was predictable…a good film, but not great.

Jennifer Lawrence: ‘her acting in "Joy" not too good to win.’

Don’t you mean "not good enough to win"? Because what it seems to say is the exact opposite.


Jennifer Lawrence received excellent reviews for JOY even if the film did not. Lawrence is regarded as the one of the best actresses of her generation…if not the best so, deal with it.


Whaat…J Law? She was pathetic in Joy. Leo will win it in drama category & Matt Damon is undoubtedly the only choice to win his category. Both deserve Oscar It would be appropriate if either Matt or Leo gets an Oscar


and, for Best Picture in Comedy/Musical, Trainwreck deserve it.


Best Song: Love Me Like You Do (Fifty Shades of Grey)
Best Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin (Steve Jobs)
for Best Supporting Actor and Actress, it’s exactly wrong. the (should be) winner are Stallone (Creed) and Vikander (Ex Machina)


Larson and DiCaprio deserves it. but, Lawrence? her acting in "Joy" not too good to win. For Comedy, I guess Schummer/McCarthy will win, with Actor is Mark Ruffalo. remember, The Martian and The Big Short is not comedy movie.


I hope Melissa McCarthy win Best Actress Comedy/Musical as I don’t think Spy would have done as well with any other actress in the lead role.

Danilo Canzanella

Best Soundtrack: Ennio Morricone (The Hateful Eight)
Best supporting actress: Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina)
Best director: George Miller (Mad Max Fury Road)


Can’t wait to see JENNIFER LAWRENCE at the Golden Globes!
