Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the Golden Globe Awards through January 13th, when the winners are announced.
Here’s our take on the best director category, the winner of which has not coincided with Oscar in the past three years (Globes went with James Cameron, David Fincher and Martin Scorsese to Oscars’ Kathryn Bigelow, Tom Hooper and Michel Hazanavicius). This year, three Oscar snubbees all have great chances of winning in Quentin Tarantino, Kathryn Bigelow and Ben Affleck, which would assure that would be the case again. Or maybe they’ll just give it to Steven Spielberg?
Our take below: Check out all predictions in all the categories here.
Ben Affleck, “Argo”
Ang Lee, “Life of Pi”
Steven Spielberg, “Lincoln”
Quentin Tarantino, “Django Unchained”
Kathryn Bigelow, “Zero Dark Thirty”
Will win: Ben Affleck, “Argo”
Could win: Any of them.
Should win: Kathryn Bigelow, “Zero Dark Thirty”
