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.
