International journalists who live in L.A. pick these awards, so anything goes. But I predict that Poehler will be funny, Fey will laugh at her own jokes, and that these folks will win:
The buzz about Boyhood should officially begin tonight.
Spoiler: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Tonight, Bird is the word.
Winner: Richard Linklater, Boyhood
Spoiler: Ava Duvernay, Selma
Two choices the Globes would love to reward. Some historical accuracy issues give Linklater the edge — and they'd love to reward this project.
Spoiler: Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game
The easiest bet of the night.
Winner: Michael Keaton, Birdman
Spoiler: Ralph Fiennes, The Grand Budapest Hotel
Keaton would be a clear bet, but the Globes sometimes shock with a clearly comedic movie.
Winner: Julianne Moore, Still Alice
Spoiler: : Jennifer Anniston, Cake
Anniston has a strong campaign going, we'll see how it works out.
Actress (Comedy or Musical)
Winner: Emily Blunt, Into The Woods
Spoiler: : Amy Adams, Big Eyes
The toughest call of the night. None of these nominees will likely get an Oscar nomination. I'm betting that they reward the musical portion of the category here.
Winner: J.K. Simmons, Whiplash
Spoiler:: Ed Norton, Birdman
I'm rooting for both of these unforgettable performances.
Winner: Patricia Arquette, Boyhood
Spoiler:: Emma Stone, Birdman
It could go either way.
International journalists who live in L.A. are picking the best foreign movie -so who knows. Force Majeure could win. Ida is a tough topic. IF they saw it, it wins.
Winner: The Lego Movie
Spoiler: The Book of Life
Spoiler: The Theory of Everything
Birdman's score is not eligible at the Oscars; the Globes have the best opportunity to recognize Birdman for one of the best scores this year.
Winner: Glory, Selma (John Legend and Common)
Spoiler: Yellow Flicker Beat, Hunger Games (Lorde)
I have a vision of Lorde on stage, but it's hard to bet against Glory. In this category, everything is awesome.
