The winners of the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards are going to be announced this Sunday, January 8th. While we will continue our Oscar predictions, today is the day to make what can be called as the second most popular film awards show after the Oscars. This year hasn’t seen a lot of ups and downs like last year — ‘La La Land’ has continued to remain favorite to win Best Picture since September (as we predicted here). Though, both ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Manchester by the Sea’ have grown in stature over the course of last few weeks. Thankfully, ‘La La Land’ won’t have to compete with them at Golden Globes since it falls in the “Comedy or Musical” category. With that said, here’s the full list of Golden Globes (Film) predictions on who will win and who should. Enjoy!
