Reel Dialogue predictions for the Golden Globes

This week saw the release of the nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. The less popular, but significant awards ceremony that audiences love to watch to get a glimpse of their favourite stars, films and television shows take home some statues. The award show is put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and this year they have made some good choices and have snubbed some great films. 

“Vice,” Adam McKay’s scathing Dick Cheney biopic, walked away with a leading six nominations with “A Star Is Born,” “The Favourite,” and “Green Book” not far behind with five nods apiece.

The Reel Dialogue team will provide our predictions for the win, our preferences to take home a statue for the category and the films that should have been included, but were forgotten. 

Reel Dialogue will focus on the film categories.
