meryl_&_rick_1418991034Golden Globes: Updated Predictions – March

We still have only movie categories predicted. For a reflection of what the television categories may look like check out our Emmy Predictions.

“The Danish Girl” and “Snowden” really appear to be in a strong position, with newly added award season release dates. Meanwhile in the, very scarce (as usual), comedy categories “Ricki and the Flash” seems baity enough to bring Meryl Streep her next Golden Globe.
