Enstars Reveals Its Official 2018 Golden Globe Awards Predictions
Hollywood will gather at the Beverly Hilton to celebrate the best in the entertainment industry with the Golden Globe Awards. Enstars has made its predictions on several contested categories.
Best Motion Picture-Drama
Our Predicted Winner: The Shape of Water
The Shape of Water has been at the top of numerous awards' shortlists and even the American Film Institute named it one of the best films of 2017. Both audiences and critics have been intrigued by director and co-screenwriter Guillermo del Toro's concept of a mute girl that falls in love with a Creature of the Black Lagoon-esque mutant.
Best Motion Picture-Comedy Or Musical
Our Predicted Winner: The Greatest Showman
Following La La Land's success at the Golden Globes is no easy task, but Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, and Zendaya brilliantly brought P.T. Barnum's world to life in The Greatest Showman. While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association might acknowledge either Lady Bird or Get Out as the winner due to previous award show buzz, The Greatest Showman should be awarded this distinction.
Best Performance In A Motion Picture-Drama (Actor)
Our Predicted Winner: Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour)
Oldman completely immersed himself in the role of a lifetime: legendary Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Oldman's Churchill gave moviegoers chills as he delivered an acting master class within the United Kingdom-based historical drama.
Best Performance In A Motion Picture-Drama (Actress)
Our Predicted Winner: Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water)
Sally Hawkins's portrayal of mute janitor Elisa Esposito blew audiences away as she delivered an epic performance. While the Hollywood Foreign Press Association might give Hawkins a well-deserved win, both the Screen Actors Guild and Critics' Choice Award could recognize her career-defining performance in the future.
Best Performance In A Motion Picture-Comedy Or Musical (Actor)
Our Predicted Winner: Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman)
Jackman delivered one of the best performances of his career when he took on the United States' first entertainment entrepreneur P.T. Barnum. Between his vulnerable scenes with Michelle Williams and stunning vocal collaborations with Zac Efron and The Greatest Showman ensemble, Jackman is this year's clear winner.
Best Performance In A Motion Picture-Comedy Or Musical (Actress)
Our Predicted Winner: Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird)
Ever since Ronan picked up her first win at the New York Critics' Circle Awards, the Lady Bird lead actress has been the talk of Tinseltown. Also, Ronan's chemistry with onscreen mother Laurie Metcalf has helped the film score big at the box office.
Best Supporting Performance In A Motion Picture-Drama, Musical, Or Comedy (Actor)
Our Predicted Winner: Either Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) or Christopher Plummer (All the Money in the World)
Enstars is not sure about this category, but we narrowed it down to two industry veterans. Dafoe received a bulk of film festival awards for his performance in The Florida Project. Meanwhile, Plummer dominated headlines when he replaced disgraced actor Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty at the last possible second for All the Money in the World. We believe that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association could recognize this achievement.
Best Supporting Performance In A Motion Picture-Drama, Musical Or Comedy (Actress)
Our Predicted Winner: Either Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird) or Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water)
Enstars has narrowed the pack down to two actresses. Laurie Metcalf received numerous accolades and even a place on Entertainment Weekly's Entertainers of 2017 for her performance in Lady Bird. Meanwhile, several prestigious award associations have recognized Octavia Spencer's fantastic portrayal of the chatty Zelda Fuller in The Shape of Water.
Best Original Song
Our Predicted Winner: "This is Me" [Benj Pasek & Justin Paul] -The Greatest Showman
This year's Best Original Song contest is extremely heated, but Dear Evan Hansen and La La Land songwriting team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul have an edge. Their powerful outcasts anthem, "This Is Me," sung by both Kesha and actress Keala Settle gave listeners chills.
Best Animated Feature Film
Our Predicted Winner: Coco
Since Coco debuted during the 2017 Thanksgiving weekend, it has been an active performer at the box office. Pair that with Pixar's excellent animation and superb songs by the Frozen songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Coco might be the runaway victor of the entire 2018 award season.
Best Series - Drama
Our Predicted Winner: This is Us
The 2018 Golden Globes might be NBC's big night. It could win in four different categories. The first win might be in its tear-inducing drama: This is Us. Between dominant performances from its perfect cast ensemble. Actor Sterling K. Brown is also nominated for the Best Performance in a Television Series - Actor award.
Best Series - Musical or Comedy
Our Predicted Winner: Will And Grace
Will And Grace and the Golden Globe Awards have a complicated relationship, but we believe this incredible reboot might finally have a shot at winning this award. Actor Eric McCormick was the only cast member to receive an acting nomination. He is up for the Best Performance in a Television Series - Comedy Actor award.
Late night host Seth Meyers will host the telecast which will air live from Los Angeles this Sunday, Jan. 7.
