Golden Globes 2019: Why This Year’s Ceremony Is Hard to Predict

Screen Talk, episode 226: Ahead of the year's first big awards show, there are a few obvious frontrunners in major categories. Or...are there?

"A Star Is Born"

“A Star Is Born”

Awards season waits for no one. As the first week of 2019 comes to a close, Sunday’s Golden Globes broadcast provides the first major ceremony of the year, and while it may not predict the Oscars, many of the major contenders for that other big awards show are also in the running this weekend. That includes “A Star Is Born,” the obvious frontrunner in more than one category. Or…is it? With “BlackKklansman” gaining momentum and “The Favourite” still in the game, anything could happen this Sunday, and it isn’t unreasonable to expect a few surprises in several categories. But it still doesn’t hurt to make some educated guesses.

Enter this week’s episode of Screen Talk, in which co-hosts Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson return from their vacations to debate the Globes possibilities and which categories are going to be the toughest to predict. They also touch on the movies they watched over the holidays, including one significant awards season contender that Kohn has been avoiding for months.
