My 7th Annual Film Awards, in the Style of the Golden Globes


No nominations in my regular awards, but here? It gets some love.

You may recall I’d done my 2014 awards in this fashion. I’d drawn this up for fun, but after posting my official awards, I figured I’d post this as well. Because this year was so dominated by Dramas, the Comedy awards give some under-appreciated films the respect they deserve.

  3. The Big Sick
  4. Lady Bird
  5. Coco

The 74th Golden Globe Awards Predictions


The multiple categories for Picture, Actor, and Actress and the single category for Screenplay may limit the effect the Globes have on the Oscars. But they can’t be overlooked as a step on the way there.

And here are my final predictions for them.
