Lupita Slave

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the Golden Globe Awards through January 12th, when the winners are announced.

With the epic snub of Oprah, this category is definitely Lupita N'yongo's to lose. Though Jennifer Lawrence is more than capable of an upset, as the Globes are probably a lot less fickle about turning her into a two time winner in just as many years (this is the organization that gave Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet and Sigourney Weaver two trophies in one night).

Our take below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees:
Sally Hawkins - "Blue Jasmine"
Jennifer Lawrence - "American Hustle"
Lupita N'yongo - "12 Years A Slave"
Julia Roberts - "August: Osage County"
June Squibb - "Nebraska"

Will win: Lupita N'yongo - "12 Years A Slave"
Could win: Jennifer Lawrence - "American Hustle"
Should win: Lupita N'yongo - "12 Years A Slave"
Shoulda been here: Margot Martindale - "August: Osage County"
