What a fantastic year for movies 2018 was. Honestly, this could be anyone’s year to bring home a bunch of awards. Even though I don’t usually watch the Golden Globes,  I think they are a great predictor for who will win at the Oscars, so I do my best to anticipate who will walk away with those coveted trophies. This year I decided that it would be fun to actually share those predictions with y’all. Based on the various trades and my overall knowledge of the industry, I have compiled a list of who I think will, should and could win at the Golden Globes this Sunday. I can’t wait to come back and see what I got correct and incorrect. Enjoy!
