This year marks the 75th awarding of the Golden Globes, honoring the best in film and television as determined by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

It also marks the first time that I’ve attempted to predict them.

Despite having devoted considerable energies to Academy Awards previews over the past decade, I’d never undertaken to predict their earlier, often portentous peers. Sure, the Globes might not have the same gravitas as the Oscars, but they still warrant at least a little attention.

(Note: While the Golden Globes recognize television as well as film, my focus is on the cinematic side of things. So while I made picks in all categories, I only went in depth on the cinematic side of things.)

Let’s go to the Globes.
