Golden Globes 2014 Nominations and Predictions

It's that time of year again, when Awards Ceremony Nominations start creeping up on us, reminding that yet another year of film and television is almost over. The week the big nomination announcement has come from the Golden Globes, so I thought that it would be fun to take a look at who is up for an Award, and try to predict who will win.

Of course, after I write this, opinions are likely to change - because they always do - but this is how things stand at the moment:
Matt Damon
(Behind the Candelabra)
Chiwetel Ejiofor
(Dancing on the Edge)
Idris Elba
Al Pacino
(Phil Spector)
Michael Douglas
(Behind the Candelabra)

Who I Think Will Win: Either Matt Damon or Michael Douglas.
(12 Years a Slave)
(Dallas Buyers Club)
(Captain Phillips)
(All is Lost)
(Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom)

Who I Think Will Win: This is a tough one to call, but I think it'll be a toss up between Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tom Hanks and Idris Elba, with strong bets on Idris Elba.

(The Wolf of Wall Street)
(American Hustle)
(Inside Llewyn Davis)

Who I Think Will Win: Either Leonarda DiCaprio, Christian Bale or Joaquin Phoenix.
Jason Bateman
(Arrested Development)
Don Cheadle
(House of Lies)
Michael J. Fox
(The Michael J. Fox Show)
Jim Parsons
(The Big Bang Theory)
Andy Samberg
(Brooklyn Nine-Nine)

Who I Think Will Win: I really want to say Michael J.Fox because he's a Legend from my childhood, but I think I have to say Jim Parsons, purely because Sheldon is an amazing character and Parsons plays him so perfectly

(Breaking Bad)
Michael Sheen
(Masters of Sex)
(House of Cards)
(The Blacklist)
(Ray Donovan)
Who I Think Will Win: Although I have never watched a single episode of Breaking Bad, I read enough of the hype around it to think that there's a strong chance that Bryan Cranston will get this one.
Helena Bonham Carter
(Burton and Taylor)
Rebecca Ferguson
(The White Queen)
Jessica Lange
(American Horror Story: Coven)
Helen Mirren
(Phil Spector)
Elisabeth Moss
(Top of the Lake)
Who I Think will Win: Hmm, I think this this will be either Helena Bonham Carter or the delightful Helen Mirren.
(Blue Jasmine)
(Saving Mr. Banks)
(Labor Day)
Who I Think Will Win: Oh gawd, I really would not want to be picking the winners of any of these categories eek, although it is really great to see so many British actresses in these categories. But, I think I have to say that my bet would be on Cate Blanchett.
(August: Osage County)
(Enough Said)
(American Hustle)
(Before Midnight)
(Frances Ha)
Who I Think Will Win: Greta Gerwig. Don't ask me why, it's just a feeling I have (and could easily be wrong!)
Zooey Deschanel
(New Girl)
Lena Dunham
Amy Poehler
(Parks and Recreation)
Edie Falco
(Nurse Jackie)
Who I Think Will Win: I'd really love for it to be Zooey Deschanel, who is totally deserving, but I think that it will probably go to Lena Dunham.
(The Good Wife)
(Orphan Black)
(House of Cards)
(Orange Is the New Black)
Who I Think Will Win: It's tough to choose an actress when you've never even heard of one of the shows (that's bad, isn't it? But I'm more a film person!), but I'm going to say Kerry Washington.
The Croods
Despicable Me 2
Who I Think Will Win: It's always a shame that there aren't more films in the Animated Feature Film category, but out of these three - and from what I have seen of how well they've all done, I think I'd place bets on frozen winning.
Alfonso Cuaron
Steve McQueen
(12 Years a Slave)
David O. Russell
(American Hustle)
Paul Greengrass
(Captain Phillips)
Alexander Payne
Who I Think Will Win: Oh, so difficult. If it was any other film, I'd go for Alfonso Cuaron, but unfortunately it is not. Therefore, this is actually easy and I have to say David O. Russell.
Blue is the Warmest Color
The Past
The Hunt
The Wind Rises
The Great Beauty
Who I Think Will Win: I'm opting out of making a selection in this category, because I'm not really big on Foreign Language Films (my Film Lecturers' passion for the French New Wave made me sceptical about such things, which is kinda sad), so it doesn't seem fair.
12 Years a Slave
Captain Phillips
Who I Think Will Win: Rush. C'mon, it has Chris Hemsworth and fast cars - how could it not win?? No, seriously, I'm not a Formula One fan, but I have family who are, and they thought that Rush was a great representation of the sport and the people involved, so it gets my vote.
American Hustle
The Wolf of Wall Street
Inside Llewyn Davis
Who I Think will Win: Either American Hustle or Her.
Steven Price
John Williams
(The Book Thief)
Hans Zimmer
(12 Years a Slave)
Alex Ebert
(All is Lost)
Alex Heffes
(Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom)
Who I Think Will Win: Oh no no no. You cannot put John Williams and Hans Zimmer in the same category and expect me to choose! I think that John Williams might pip it - because it's The Book Thief - but I also think that Hans Zimmer is a strong contender, because he's always amazing!
(Hunger Games Catching Fire)
Let It Go
Ordinary Love
(Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom)
Please Mr Kennedy
(Inside Llewyn Davis)
Sweeter Than Fiction
(One Chance)
Who I Think Will Win: Atlas. Only because it is the only award that Catching Fire has been nominated for (although, it's not really the kind of film that gets heavily acknowledged by Awards like the Golden Globes anyway), so my vote goes to Atlas.
John Ridley
(12 Years a Slave)
Bob Nelson
Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell
(American Hustle)
Jeff Pope
Spike Jonze
Who I Think Will Win: Spike Jonze.
(12 Years a Slave)
(Dallas Buyers Club)
(American Hustle)
(Captain Phillips)
Who I Think Will Win: If I was predicting on hotness, it would be a toss up between Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto, but I'm not - honest - therefore, I think I'll go for Michael Fassbender (who is totally ugly *cough*)
Rob Lowe
(Behind the Candelabra)
Josh Charles
(The Good Wife)
Aaron Paul
(Breaking Bad)
Corey Stoll
(House of Cards)
Jon Voight
(Ray Donovan)
Who I Think Will Win: Aaron Paul.
(12 Years a Slave)
(American Hustle)
(August: Osage County)
(Blue Jasmine)
Who I Think Will Win: Either Jennifer Lawrence or Sally Hawkins, although I think Hawkins would be a little bit more deserving (not that Lawrence isn't deserving of course).
Jacqueline Bisset
(Dancing On the Edge)
(The White Queen)
(Modern Family)
Who I Think Will Win: Probably Monica Potter.
American Horror Story: Coven
Behind the Candelabra
Dancing on the Edge
Top of the Lake
White Queen
Who I Think Will Win: Behind the Candelara
The Big Bang Theory
Modern Family
Brooklyn 99
Parks and Recreation
Who I Think Will Win: The Big Bang Theory hands down, but I wouldn't be surprised if Girls pipped it.
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
House of Cards
Masters of Sex
The Good Wife
Who I Think Will Win: Stupid question: Downton Abbey (duh!)
