2018 Golden Globe Awards Predictions

2018 Golden Globe Awards Predictions

Though the Olympics are but a month away, the real athletic competition starts this weekend with the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards!

Hollywood's best and brightest (or in some cases just newest) stars of ALL the screens will gather Sunday night dressed in their second finest frocks for the second most important red carpet of the year. The awards will be handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, whose membership numbers fewer than 100, so their choices do make for the occasional head scratch, eyebrow raise, or spit take. Seth Meyers hosts and some lady named Oprah Winfrey will receive this year's Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.

So grab a pitcher of your second favorite mixed drink, follow along with us on Twitter @CineMunch throughout the telecast (starting at 8pm ET on NBC), and read on for my foolhardy predictions!

2017 Fall Movie Preview: Most Anticipated Films

The days of pumpkin spice and cinema for grown-ups are upon us! The year in film so far has been incredibly disappointing, but we've found some cautious optimism when looking ahead to the remainder of 2017. Below you'll find the twenty movies we're most eager to see - for better (Call Me By Your Name) or worse (Happy Death Day). Titles link to the film's trailer where available. To see what we were looking forward to in past years (as a basis for our judgment), click here, here, or here. The three most recent Best Picture winners were all featured on those lists, so perhaps one of the twenty below will join that esteemed group (looking at you, Geostorm!).

Now on with the lists, and happy movie-going!

2017 Emmy Awards Predictions

2017 Emmy Awards Predictions

The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be doled out this evening, honoring the best television had to offer in the 2016-2017 season. With "Game of Thrones" sitting this year out (it's most recent season will be Emmy eligible at next year's awards), there's a lot of new blood in the Drama categories - and Best Drama Series is possibly the most competitive and unpredictable it has ever been! That said, the Emmys also like to turn on the autopilot, so there should be a handful of repeat winners to counteract all the newness.

I've watched more scripted TV in the past year than any other (36 complete seasons of eligible shows - yikes), but that won't help me one bit with my predictions! Below are my picks for who and what might take home a golden trophy tonight in the rumored order the 27 categories are to be presented in. Stephen Colbert hosts this year's soiree, which will air live on CBS beginning at 8pm ET, and don't forget to mix a few cocktails and follow along with our commentary on Twitter all evening @CineMunch.

2017 Emmy Nominations Predictions

2017 Emmy Nominations Predictions

Nominations for the 69th Annual Emmy Awards, honoring the best of the best in television from the past year, will be announced tomorrow, July 13th. With HBO's juggernaut Game of Thrones ineligible (it didn't air new episodes within the June-May window) and a number of much-buzzed first year series looking likely to break through, there may be a healthy amount of surprises among the nominees. Though this is the Emmys, so maybe not. I'll be cheering loudly for The Leftovers and Westworld on the Drama side, all things Big Little Lies in the Limited Series categories, and Carrie Coon times two. Below are my last-minute predictions in 16 of the top categories.
