Golden Globes 2019: My predictions and the winners

Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, co-hosts of the 2019 Golden Globes

Tonight the 2019 awards season kicks off with the Golden Globes! As usual, here is my predictions piece ahead of the event, showing who I think will win versus who I want to win.

I should say that I have been very behind with TV this past year and so most of my TV choices will be guesses based on what I’ve heard/read. My movie selections will be much more educated predictions!

UPDATE: The winners are highlighted in bold.
