Golden Globes 2021 movie predictions: who should win?


The 78th Golden Globe Awards will take place on March 1, 2021 at 6.30 a.m. according to Indian time. This time, the ceremony was delayed for two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), they are typically distributed in early January each year. While the Oscars or the Oscars recognize the best in big-screen entertainment or at least the feature film format, the Golden Globes cover both television and film.

The ceremony will be held in both Los Angeles and New York with nominees from all over the world. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the event together from the Rainbow Room in New York and the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.

Here are our predictions in the movie categories:


Best Film – Drama

The father
Promising young woman
The Chicago 7 trial

The race is tight here, and honestly any movie among these could win and no one would yell “Snub!”. Nomadland is arguably the best film rated here and has also been called the best film of 2021 more times than any other on the list. Still, we think The Trial of the Chicago 7 may well end up winning.

Best Film – Musical or Comedy

Next movie Borat
Palm springs

By far the funniest movie of 2020, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is set to win the Golden Globe in this category.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama

Riz Ahmed – Sound of Metal as Ruben Stone
Chadwick Boseman (posthumously appointed) – Ma Rainey’s Dark Background as Levee Green
Anthony Hopkins – The Father as Anthony
Gary Oldman – Mank as Herman J. Mankiewicz
Tahar Rahim – The Mauritanian as Mohamedou Ould Salahi

While 2020 has been rich in fantastic individual performances despite fewer film releases, no performance can come close to Riz Ahmed’s phenomenal turning point in Sound of Metal.

Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

Viola Davis – The Black Background of Ma Rainey as Ma Rainey
Andra Day – The United States vs. Billie Holiday as Billie Holiday
Vanessa Kirby – Pieces of a Woman as Martha Weiss
Frances McDormand – Nomadland as Fern
Carey Mulligan – A Promising Young Woman as Cassandra “Cassie” Thomas

Again, an extremely difficult choice. Viola Davis and Frances McDormand are veterans who have proven themselves time and time again. But this time, Vanessa Kirby deserves the trophy because of her subtle but extraordinary performance in a complex role.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

Sacha Baron Cohen – Borat’s subsequent film as Borat Sagdiyev
James Corden – The Ball as Barry Glickman
Lin-Manuel Miranda – Hamilton as Alexander Hamilton
Dev Patel – The Personal Story of David Copperfield as David Copperfield
Andy Samberg – Palm Springs as Nyles

Sacha Baron Cohen can be so shocking and outrageous that it’s easy to forget that he is also an exceptional actor. Behind the facade, there is a serious performer who only emerges after multiple viewings of his films. We think Baron Cohen should accept this.

Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical

Maria Bakalova – Borat’s subsequent film as Tutar Sagdiyev
Kate Hudson – Music als Kazu “Zu” Gamble
Michelle Pfeiffer – French Release as Frances Price
Rosamund Pike – I Care A Lot as Marla Grayson
Anya Taylor-Joy – Emma as Emma Woodhouse

If Borat provided the humor in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Maria’s wild tutar was the heart. Maria Bakalova was quite convincing in the role and is expected to clinch the trophy.

Best Supporting Actor – Film

Sacha Baron Cohen – The Trial of the Chicago 7 as Abbie Hoffman
Daniel Kaluuya – Judas and the Black Messiah as Fred Hampton
Jared Leto – The Little Things as Albert Sparma
Bill Murray – On the Rocks as Felix Keane
Leslie Odom Jr. – A Night in Miami as Sam Cooke

Daniel Kaluuya has generated a lot of positive buzz due to his performance in Judas and the Black Messiah, a film which is itself a favorite. He should win.

Best Supporting Actress – Film

Glenn Close – Hillbilly Elegy as Bonnie “Mamaw” Vance
Olivia Colman – The Father as Anne
Jodie Foster – The Mauritanian as Nancy Hollander
Amanda Seyfried – Mank as Marion Davies
Helena Zengel – News from the World as Johanna Leonberger

Olivia Colman is the first in this category. The Father may not be as talked about in award circles as a few other films, but Colman’s performance has been praised by many.

Best Director – Film

Emerald Fennell – Promising Young Woman
David Fincher – Mank
Regina King – A Night in Miami
Aaron Sorkin – The Chicago Trial 7
Chloé Zhao – Nomadland

Regina King’s directorial debut received universal critical acclaim, but most analysts believe HFPA Chloe Zhao will take that for Nomadland, arguably the best film of 2020.

Best Screenplay – Film

Emerald Fennell – Promising Young Woman
Jack Fincher (posthumously appointed) – Mank
Aaron Sorkin – The Chicago Trial 7
Florian Zeller and Christopher Hampton – The Father
Chloé Zhao – Nomadland

It’s hard to overstate how much HFPA loves Aaron Sorkin, and it’s hardly outrageous. He is known for his sharp scripts and lively dialogue. The Chicago 7 trial was a court drama and was practically carried by its dialogue. He deserves to win this trophy.

Best Original Music

Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste – Soul
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross – Mank
James Newton Howard – News from the World
Alexandre Desplat – The Midnight Sky
Ludwig Göransson – Tenet

There were a lot of good things in Mank. One was the score, which was not only fit for the time, but was also worth listening to, regardless. Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross should take this for Mank. However, we won’t be surprised if Ludwig Göransson pulls off an upheaval.

Best Original Song

“Fight for You” (D’Mile, HER and Tiara Thomas) – Judas and the Black Messiah
“Hear My Voice” (Celeste and Daniel Pemberton) – The Chicago Trial 7
“Io sì (Vu)” (Niccolò Agliardi, Laura Pausini and Diane Warren) – The life to come
“Speak Now” (Sam Ashworth & Leslie Odom Jr.) – A Night in Miami
“Tigress & Tweed” (Andra Day and Raphael Saadiq) – The United States vs. Billie Holiday

Extremely subjective category, we think “Tigress & Tweed” is the best song among the nominees and should win.

Best animated feature film

The Croods: A New Age
Above the moon
Wolf walkers

This one is easy. Soul was the best animated film of 2020, and is expected to win in this category.

Best Foreign Language Film

Another Round (Denmark)
La Llorona (Guatemala)
Life to Come (Italy)
Minari (United States)
Two of us (France)

Minari is Steven Yeun’s most personal film, a moving portrayal of South Korean immigrants living in America in the 1980s. It is expected to win in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
