I'd like to advise you, criddic, that taking out at least some of your runners-up may improve your score.

Yeah, Son of Saul is a lot more likely to win the Foreign Language category, but if I have the opportunity to predict a Finnish film for once in my lifetime, I'm not going to let it go by.

I may reconsider/change a few of these before Sunday.

Golden Globes predictions contest!

Postby anonymous1980 » Tue Jan 05, 2016 8:07 am

You know the rules but to refresh your memory:

1. Pick a winner and an optional runner-up in all the FILM categories.

2. A correct prediction with a runner-up earns 2 points.

3. A correct runner-up prediction earns 1 point.

4. A correct prediction without a runner-up earns 3 points.

5. Most accumulated points win.

6. Deadline is the moment Ricky Gervais hit the stage and start his opening monologue.

OPTIONAL BONUS TIE-BREAKER QUESTION (3 points)

How many full standing ovations will there be? (If no one is exactly right, the closest one/s without going over will get the points).
