2014 Golden Globes Preview and Predictions from the Gold Rush Gang


The 72nd Golden Globe nominations are tomorrow morning and AwardsWatch’s Gold Rush Gang has the web’s best predictions right here. Looking at a cross-section of the GRG there is total agreement in Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama), Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama), Best Screenplay and Best Animated Film. From there we find some diversity and some interesting races and predictions. In Best Motion Picture (Drama) three of the four members are in line, predicting Boyhood, Gone Girl, The Imitation Game, Selma and Unbroken with just Alexander outside, predicting The Theory of Everything instead of Gone Girl. Will he be right and show us all up?

Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture and Best Director see our group of four split 2/2 with Matt M and myself opting for Emma Stone in Birdman while Alexander and Peter have Jessica Chastain in A Most Violent Year getting the nod. In Director, Matt M and Peter have David Fincher (Gone Girl) while Alexander and myself see Ava DuVernay (Selma) joining Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman), Angelina Jolie (Unbroken), Richard Linklater (Boyhood) and Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) for the mention.

Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, Best Original Score and Best Original Song look to be very contentious categories as there is no agreement amongst the four Gold Rush Gang members so we’ll be keeping a close eye on those races and who comes out on top.

Check out the full list below and don’t forget to log onto www.awardswatch.com and follow us on twitter at @awards_watch for real-time nomination announcements Thursday morning and commentary throughout the day.



About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
