Golden Globes Winners 2015

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization responsible for giving away the Golden Globe awards (arguably, the second only to the Oscars in terms of prestige), are a much more difficult group to predict than the Academy (who hand out the Oscars). Part of the reason for that is because they are a smaller group than the Academy and hence it is not difficult for a member or a group of members to influence rest of the members of the organization. Secondly, members of HFPA have also been known to be star-fixated. So, they might choose to reward an actor or a director for their star quality over the actual performance or film’s quality. I am not saying it always happens, but has happened a few times in the past. With that said, let’s have a look at who I think are going to win the Golden Globes this year — to be announced on Sunday, 11th January.
