Golden Globes 2016 Nominations

SHARE

The Golden Globes nominations have been announced. Did your favourite movie or TV show make the list?

I’m a tad late to the show here. The Golden Globes nominations were announced on December 10th, so naturally, I talk about it 11 days later. No biggie. Here’s the list of nominees, followed by a brief summary of my thoughts on each award and my predictions on who will win.

Motion Picture, Drama

Carol
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Revenant
Room
Spotlight

Overall, a great list. Although, I’m quite surprised Brooklyn and The Hateful Eight did not make the cut. With that being said, it would be tough to take out a film or two from the list above to make room for the two mentioned.

Should win: Spotlight

Will win: Carol

Motion Picture, Comedy

The Big Short
Joy
The Martian
Spy
Trainwreck
