The first major awards show of the season, The Golden Globes never completely mirror the Academy Awards, which will be held on Sunday in Beverly Hills, California, by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. So far Golden Globes heavyweights are: Meryl Streep has won the most Golden Globes (8), followed by Jack Nicholson (6) and Francis Ford Coppola, Shirley MacLaine, Rosalind Russell and Oliver Stone (5 apiece).
We’re offering up our predictions for the show on who will win and who should win?
