Golden Globes Predictions 2015

2015/01/img_2079.jpgI’ve seen a lot of the movies nominated for Golden Globes this year, but not all. My general rule is to see everything before the Academy Awards. With most Awards-baiting movies playing in limited release until after the holiday season, it’s tough to get to everything before the Globes. I’ll try my best to predict the winners (note: I never get these right). My choice for winner of each award will be in bold.
