The Golden Globes will be hosted this Sunday by Ricky Gervais, and if previous performances are any indication, they should be a hoot!
With all that in mind, here are my picks for who should win some of the categories (given the nominees…not gonna add people in who don’t even have a chance!).
Also, some categories have been left out because I haven’t seen enough of the movies/shows to make an opinion.
Best Motion Picture, Drama – Spotlight — Top movie of 2015, hands down, and should be awarded this accolade.

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy – The Big Short — This complex scenario was made simple in this great movie based off the Michael Lewis book.
Stay tuned in upcoming posts for my Big Short review.
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy – Christian Bale, The Big Short — His performance as Dr Michael Burry is a notch above some of the other candidates.
Best Supporting Actress in any Motion Picture – Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina — An understated movie and her role as Ava, her performance shines through in a very quiet movie.
Best Director, Motion Picture – Tom McCarthy, Spotlight
Best Screenplay, Motion Picture – Spotlight, with a close second place by The Big Short.
Best Motion Picture, Animated – Inside Out — One of the best Animated movies in years.

Best Original Song, Motion Picture – Love Me Like You Do, Fifty Shades of Grey — Any follower of my blog knows that Ellie holds a special place in my heart.
Best Television Series, Drama – Mr. Robot
Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy – Mozart in the Jungle — While OITNB and Transparent should rule this category, the fact that they are a little too serious at times may lower their value.
My review of Mozart can be read here.
Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama – Robin Wright, House of Cards
Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama – Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul — It’s hard to follow-up to a successful show, but Bob does a good job grabbing in the Breaking Bad crowd.
Best Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy – Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy – Aziz Ansari, Master of None

Best Supporting Actress in a TV Show – Uzo Aduba, Orange is the New Black
