Golden Globes 2016: The Winners!

Hello everyone! The 73rd Golden Globes are done! Let’s see how my predictions went!

Well, this was my worst prognostication of an Awards ceremony…ever. 4/25. wow. I have a feeling that most of these winners will miss out at the Oscars.

My Predictions will be BOLD. My follow up post tonight will list the winners in GREEN, and we will see how I did.


I feel I have a pretty good grasp on the films released, but there are so many I have not seen yet. From now until Oscar Sunday, I will be cramming in as many oscar nominees as I can. These selections, while not 100% useful, do give me guidance as to what to watch before the nominees are listed.
