2015 Golden Globes Predictions

When predicting last year’s Golden Globe winners, I’d seen almost every film on the list, so I was fairly confident in my choices. This year, I still need to see half of the films (thanks to release timing), so my confidence in predicting winners is basically nonexistent. But whatever. Let’s predict this shit so we can watch Amy and Tina!

Please note: I didn’t include the entire list of Golden Globe nominees (since I don’t cover television). You can see the rest here. Also, I’ll have a follow-up post on Monday to discuss the overall show and whether or not my predictions were right. Here we go!
