Golden Globes 2016

With just a few hours before the Golden Globe awards, which takes place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., Caribpress’ entertainment editor, Samantha Ofole-Prince, breaks down who the likely winners and possible losers could be in the movie category.

La La Land earned 7 Golden Globe nominations

Damien Chazelle’s musical masterpiece “La La Land” has the most nominations and is a sure bet to snag at least three of the seven nominations it has received. A film filled with comedy, drama and gorgeous visuals, the romantic musical, which stars actors Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone will likely receive a Globe for best motion picture (musical or comedy), a best actor nod for Gosling, and for sure a best score accolade for composer Justin Hurwitz.Moonlight

Barry Jenkin’s beautifully crafted heartfelt film Moonlight follows a close second with six nominations and is likely to receive an accolade for best screenplay for Jenkins. Nominated for best supporting acting accolades are its stars Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali, who is likely to win an accolade over Jeff Bridges in “Hell or High Water. But with Nicole Kidman, Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis and Michelle Williams, who is nominated for her small part in “Manchester By the Sea” all vying for the Globe, Kidman is likely to win the accolade for her role in the indie drama “Lion” in which she plays a mother who adopts a young Indian boy.Manchester By The Sea should earn Casey Aflleck an accolade

Kenneth Lonergan’s piece “Manchester By The Sea,” which follows a janitor in mourning, earned five nominations and is likely to snag three. Definitely a best motion picture accolade (drama), it’s a sure bet to beat out “Moonlight,” “Lion” and “Hell or High Water” and will also net a best actor nod for its star Casey Affleck.

 

Ms Streep is a sure bet to win a Globe“Florence Foster Jenkins,” a sad drama about an aging socialite who dreams of a music career will surely receive one of the four accolades for its star Meryl Streep. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the Golden Globes, are simply besotted with the eight-time Golden Globe winner, and although she’s slated to receive their highest honor, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, it’s likely the best actress accolade will be the cherry on top.

Jimmy Fallon will host the 74th Golden Globe Awards, which takes place Sunday and honors the best in film and American television of 2016.
