Golden Globe 2017 Prediction

Okay so first thing first, I didn't watched all movies or TV series. I will only predict those which I've watched. Therefore, the nomination here is INCOMPLETE. Okay, here it goes.

Best Motion Picture, Drama
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water

Manchester By the Sea
MoonlightPrediction: Manchester By the Sea OR Moonlight
Actually I'm leaning for Moonlight more than MBS but MBS will be the first. I don't even know why Lion is on the list, but then it is a Weinstein Company film so yeah.

Best Motion Picture, Musical, or Comedy
20th Century Women
Florence Foster Jenkins 
La La Land
Sing Street
Prediction: La La Land

Honestly, I really enjoy Florence Foster Jenkins among the rest, but La La Land is a movie about Hollywood so yeah, it will win. It's an Oscar darling anyway. Deadpool? Not a chance.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama
Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea
Denzel Washington, Fences
Joel Edgerton, Loving
Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge
Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic
Prediction : Casey Affleck. Manchester by the Sea
Among the nominees, it is as clear as crystal that the fight is between Affleck and Washington. However, my pick is on Affleck.

Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
Amy Adams, Arrival
Jessica Chastain, Miss Sloane
Isabelle Huppert, Elle
Ruth Negga, Loving
Natalie Portman, Jackie
Prediction : Natalie Portman, Jackie
Portman is my pick here. This is actually her best acting, more than her Black Swan. I don't know Chastain's acting because I didn't watch Miss Sloane.

Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
 Emma Stone, La La Land
Annette Bening, 20th Century Women
Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins
Hailee Steinfeld, The Edge of Seventeen
Lily Collins, Rules Don’t Apply
Prediction: Emma Stone, La La Land
Emma Stone won Venice's Best Actress award, so it is safe to say she's going to be a potential winner. Despite I really want Meryl Streep to win, but I think GG is eyeing Stone more. I honestly don't know why Collins is on the list but I didn't watch Rules Don't Apply so I don't know.

Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical, or Comedy 
Ryan Gosling, La La Land
Hugh Grant, Florence Foster Jenkins
Colin Farrell, The Lobster
Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool
Jonah Hill, War Dogs
Prediction: Ryan Gosling, La La Land OR Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool.
Gosling is more logical winner because La La Land is a musical darling. However, Reynold gives a good acting without even taking his mask off. It's admirable. However, I don't know if GG will take a risk in giving the title to a superhero movie when there's more critically accepted a movie like La La Land.

Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion PictureViola Davis, Fences
Michelle Williams, Manchester by the Sea
Naomie Harris, Moonlight
Nicole Kidman, Lion
Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures

Prediction : Viola Davis, Manchester by the Sea
Easy to predict since she is the front runner among the rest. I didn't see Lion so I don't know Kidman's acting. 
Best Performance By an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Mahershala Ali, Moonlight
Dev Patel, Lion
Jeff Bridges, Hell or High Water
Simon Helberg, Florence Foster Jenkins
Michael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals
Prediction: Mahershala Ali, Moonlight

I don't even see a threat here for Ali.

Best Director, Motion PictureDamien Chazelle, La La Land
Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea
Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Tom Ford, Nocturnal Animals
Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge
Prediction: Damien Chazelle, La La Land OR Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge
Chazelle has more potential to come out as the winner but with Gibson, who knows?


Best Screenplay, Motion Picture 
Manchester by the Sea
La La Land
Nocturnal Animals
Hell or High Water

Prediction : Manchester by the Sea OR Moonlight
Honestly, I cannot exactly predict this one. IF Manchester won then the possibility to win the best drama motion picture opened wide.
