Golden Globes 2017: Who will win?

For movie-lovers and those working in the entertainment industry, it's that time of year.

The biggest film and entertainment awards ceremonies are just around the corner and, as per tradition, it kicks off with the Golden Globes this Sunday, 8th January.

Jimmy Fallon, American comedian and television host notably known for Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show, will be at the helms of the 74th Golden Globe Awards, to be held on Sunday, 8th January 2017 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

Fallon is a veteran of many Golden Globes, having presented awards in a variety of categories in the past.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has, since 1944 selected both the nominees and winners for the ceremony, which awards recipients across the film, television and music industries. Composed of notable journalists and photographers from approximately 56 countries this organisation has been at the heart of the golden globe ceremony since its inception in 1944.

In the film segment of the awards, this year’s front-runners include “La La Land” (seven nominations), “Moonlight” (six nominations) and “Manchester by the Sea” (five nominations).

Colin Farrell (“The Lobster”), Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”), Jonah Hill (“War Dogs”), Hugh Grant (“Florence Foster Jenkins”) and Ryan Gosling (“La La Land”) will compete for the title of Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. On the other hand, the nominees for Best Actor in a Drama include Denzel Washington (“Fences”), Viggo Mortensen (“Captain Fantastic”), Andrew Garfield (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Joel Egerton (“Loving”) and Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”).

In the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy category, Emma Stone (“La La Land”) will go up against Annette Benning (“20th Century Women”), Lily Collins (“Rules Don’t Apply”), Hailee Steinfeld (“The Edge of Seventeen”) and Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins”). The nominees for Best Actress in a Drama include Ruth Nega (“Loving”), Natalie Portman (“Jackie”), Jessica Chastain (“Miss Sloane”), Isabelle Huppert (“Elle”) and Amy Adams (“Arrival”).

Television series having had the greatest impact this year include “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us” and “Westworld”, all earning nods in the drama category. “Atlanta,” “black-ish,” “Mozart in the Jungle,” “Transparent” and “Veep” were recognised in this year’s Best Comedy category.

“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” leads the Best Limited Series or TV Movie category with 5 nominations, against “American Crime,” “The Dresser,” “The Night Manager,” “The Night Of”.

Multi award winning and “Florence Foster Jenkins” star Meryl Streep, is in for a very special evening as she has been announced as this year’s recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment." The 67-year-old actress, considered by many as the best actress of her generation, is certainly a worthy winner of this special award. Streep is a three-time Oscar winner, she has earned 29 Golden Globe nominations and has won eight in her 40-plus year career in film.

The 74th Golden Globe Awards will be presented from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Sunday, 8th January 2017 from 8-11 p.m. ET.
