Golden Globes predictions by film: Expect ‘A Star is Born’ and ‘The Favourite’ to grab the most nominations


We’re predicting 11 Golden Globe categories for film — everything except Best Score, Best Song and Best Foreign Film — and based on our forecasts it looks like the two top films will be “The Favourite” and “A Star is Born” when the nominations are announced on Thursday morning, December 6. Do you agree? Scroll down to see our complete predictions by film, with projected winners highlighted in gold.

These predictions are based on our racetrack odds, which are generated by combining the forecasts of thousands of Gold Derby users like you. And those odds indicate that “A Star is Born” will be nominated six times, including Best Film Drama and lead acting bids for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. But as mentioned above, our predictions center doesn’t include music categories; those will be added after the nominations announcement so you can predict the winners in all races. It seems pretty likely that “Star” will be nominated for Best Song for “Shallow” at the very least, which would bring its total to seven.

“The Favourite” is also predicted for six nominations, including Best Film Comedy/Musical and noms for its three female stars: leading lady Olivia Colman and supporting actresses Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. There’s no original song from the film, though, and the score consists of preexisting classical compositions, so six nominations might be the ceiling for this offbeat historical film.

The good news for both films is that they’re competing in different genre fields, so they won’t have to face each other in top categories, which is why they’re both currently tipped to win three awards. “A Star is Born” is the front-runner in all three drama categories while “The Favourite” will take top honors for Best Film Comedy/Musical and for Colman in addition to a victory for its screenplay.
