Awards season will officially kick off this Sunday night as Hollywood will be feeling rather golden soon.
The 2019 Golden Globe nominations came out last month, much to the delight of film and TV fans everywhere. There are a lot of first-timers who are up for awards this year, and a lot of our faves here at 4 Your Excitement are also up for awards.
With the awards coming up this Sunday night, we thought we would pick who we would like to see win one of the highly coveted Globes up for grabs this year.
Without further ado, check out our Winners Wishlist below!
Best Motion Picture – Drama
If Beale Street Could Talk
A Star Is Born
Shelby: I am fairly certain this will go to A Star is Born, but my little Marvel heart really wants to see Black Panther take it home to prove that comic book movies are just as good as regular movies. Basically, I want Black Panther to stick it to the man this awards season.
Clare: I think this is likely between If Beale Street Could Talk and A Star Is Born. I’ve only seen the latter and was blown away by it so going for A Star Is Born.
Verena: I really want Black Panther to take this home, but I’m pretty sure the highly underwhelming A Star Is Born will win this one. Hollywood loves crap like that.
Emmy: Golden Globes history tells me to pick If Beale Street Could Talk but this is a wishlist so my wish is for the house of Marvel to take it home with Black Panther.
Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Crazy Rich Asians
Mary Poppins Returns
Shelby: I think this is Crazy Rich Asians’ to lose. The film was funny, charming, and diverse. Hollywood needs a good dose of all of those things and I think Crazy Rich Asians is just the film to kickstart it all. Just saying.
Clare: I have to say I haven’t seen any of these films at the time of writing this (a number only released here in Australia this week). While Mary Poppins Returns is sentimental favourite, going on what I’ve read and heard and the current mood in Hollywood, I agree with Shelby that Crazy Rich Asians will take it out.
Verena: I agree with Shelby, there’s a very good chance Crazy Rich Asians is the frontrunner for this category, with The Favorite being a close second.
Emmy: I think The Favourite is going to pull off the win here over Crazy Rich Asians. Both films were equally delightful but that Favourite cast is hard to beat.
Best Motion Picture – Animated
Isle of Dogs
Ralph Breaks the Internet
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Shelby: Uh, Into the Spider-Verse. The film is absolutely beautiful. It’s great seeing animation expand in a way that is different and surprising and aesthetically pleasing. Spider-Verse is all of those things and it has a great and interesting storyline. (Give all the awards to the comic book films this year. Do it.)
Clare: Isle of Dogs.
Verena: Full disclosure, I haven’t seen any of these films (I know, boo), but the amount of people that have been raving to me about Into The Spider-Verse has to be right, right?
Emmy: Make my winner Marvelous this year and give it to Spider-Man.
Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language
Never Look Away
Clare: Roma is the only one I’ve heard anything about and it’s meant to be fantastic so going with that one.
Verena: Sure, everyone is head over heels in love with Roma. I’m giving my vote to Shoplifters.
Emmy: Roma is breathtaking. Just watched it on Netflix. It gets my vote.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Glenn Close, The Wife
Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born
Nicole Kidman, Destroyer
Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Rosamund Pike, A Private War
Shelby: I love Rosamund Pike. I have since Pride & Prejudice, but this award is going to the queen, Lady Gaga. Hands down.
Clare: I will be heartbroken if Lady Gaga doesn’t win this one. She blew me away in A Star Is Born and deserves all the credit and acclaim heaped on her for this role.
Verena: I want to say Nicole Kidman because Destroyer is utterly brilliant, and so is Rosamund Pike in A Private War. But like with Best Film this one will go the A Star is Born. At least Gaga deserves it.
Emmy: It’s Lady Gaga’s to lose on this one. She was fantastic.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born
Willem Dafoe, At Eternity’s Gate
Lucas Hedges, Boy Erased
Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
John David Washington, BlackKklansman
Shelby: Hmm. There are three outstanding actors in this category and dang if I don’t know who to choose. Honestly, I really want Rami Malek to win. He did some stellar things in Bohemian Rhapsody. I don’t think anyone else could have embodied Freddy Mercury quite as he did.
Clare: Rami Malek was outstanding in Bohemian Rhapsody, he just needed a better film to support him. I think he will likely take this home, though Lucas Hedges for Boy Erased cannot be discounted.
Verena: I cannot wait to see Boy Erased, as it hasn’t been released in the UK yet. I agree with Shelby and Clare that Malek’s performance in BoRhap was phenomenal.
Emmy: I feel like we may be surprised and see Willem Dafoe walk off with this one for his portrayal of Van Gogh. That being said, I’d love to see Rami win it. He absolutely crushed it as Freddie.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns
Olivia Coleman, The Favourite
Elsie Fisher, Eighth Grade
Charlize Theron, Tully
Constance Wu, Crazy Rich Asians
Shelby: Let’s just go with Crazy Rich Asians everywhere, shall we? Constance Wu. The woman’s hilarious. I love her.
Clare: I love Emily Blunt and love Mary Poppins. From what I have seen she has done a superb job encapsulating the beloved nanny and so will be rewarded here.
Verena: I don’t even know what those two are on about, this one is 100% Olivia Colman’s to lose. What a #kween.
Emmy: I’m with Verena on this one though would be delighted as well to see Emily win too.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
Christian Bale, Vice
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Poppins Returns
Viggo Mortensen, Green Book
Robert Redford, The Old Man in the Gun
John C. Reilly, Stan and Ollie
Shelby: Lin-Manuel Miranda. He’s already an EGOT, right? Let’s just add to it because the dude’s got skills. So. Many. Skills. I bow down to his skills.
Clare: I agree with Shelby. Plus just look at him…. How can you not give him everything?!
Verena: Same. Can we just give all the awards to Lin-Manuel Miranda for being the best human? We don’t deserve him.
Emmy: My heart says Lin-Manuel but Christian Bale will probably walk away with this one. His method acting ways are just too damn good.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture
Amy Adams, Vice
Claire Foy, First Man
Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk
Emma Stone, The Favourite
Rachel Weisz, The Favourite
Shelby: Again, there are so many good actresses in this category. Oh no. I have the biggest soft spot imaginable for Regina King so my vote’s for her. The girl can slay and I’m all down for her winning, especially as she’s the only drama actress in a pool of comedy. Like, who does that? Putting comedy acting in a lump with dramatic acting? Why?
Clare: Unfortunately more than one nomination from a movie often splits the votes so while I have heard amazing things from both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, this is likely to play against them. If Beale Street Could Talk received rave reviews so I’m backing Regina King.
Verena: I’ve only seen two out of these films (release dates, again) and I can tell you it ain’t Claire Foy’s year to win. First Man was a disappointment. I vote for Emma Stone.
Emmy: This one is a doozy but it will most likely be between Regina King and Emma Stone, with Regina probably going for the win since drama tends to take the cake here.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture
Mahershela Ali, Green Book
Timothee Chalamet, Beautiful Boy
Adam Driver, BlackKklansman
Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
