Golden Globe Drinking Game

tom-hanks-diner
You’ve seen my predictions..now here is my official drinking game for this Sundays Golden Globes!

 

* Take a sip “Sky Full Of Stars” or “Bang Bang” are used in a montage.

* Take three sips if Benedict Cumberbatch is mentioned twice (GUARANTEED since he’s nominated twice)

* Take two sips for yourself, and then two sips for this blogger when Julia Louis Dreyfus loses to Gina Rodriguez.

* One sipt if Kevin Spacey wins for “House Of Cards” AND talks in Frank Underwood dialect

* Two sips if Meryl Streep wins over Patricia Arquette. Dammit.

* Two sips if you, or someone you’re with utters ‘Who the hell is Eddie Redmayne?’

* One sip when Uzo Aduba wins and cries. I love you Crazy Eyes, but no need to cry. It’s only a Golden Globe.

* Morbid, but take two sips if you gasp when someone you didn’t know died, is in the In Memoriam segment.

* Three sips if somehow “The Affair” wins anything.

* One sip if someone on your Twitter or Facebook posts about McNulty being nominated.

* Two sips if Tina Fey and Amy Poehler make you laugh and snort. Note: I’ll be drunk pretty fast with this one ^^ Not really.

* One sip each time someone is played off with the “Get the hell off stage” music”

* If someone says “I’m just happy to be nominated” take three sips. Bull shit. You showed up to win!

* Two sips if McConaughey says “Alright alright alright.” We get it. You’re alright.

* One sip EACH TIME the word ‘agent’ is used.

* One sip each time you see Fey or Poehler drinking.

* CHUG the rest of your drink at 11pm, when you realize you have to go to work the next morning, while all the celebrities are going out to turn up.

Golden Globe Television Predictions

It’s that time of year again! The Golden Globes are this Sunday…and here are my FEARLESS predictions!

 

Best TV Series – Drama

“Downton Abbey
“The Affair”
“Game Of Thrones”
“House Of Cards”
“The Good Wife”

Should Win: “House Of Cards”
Will Win: “House Of Cards”
Spoiler: “Game Of Thrones”

Analysis: With “Breaking Bad” gone, and “True Detective” in Miniseries, expect “House Of Cards” to walk away with this. The only show with any shot of beating it is “Game Of Thrones”, due to the cable factor.

 

Best Actress – TV Drama

Viola Davis “How To Get Away With Murder”
Claire Danes “Homeland”
Julianna Marguiles “The Good Wife”
Robin Wright “House Of Cards”
Ruth Wilson “The Affair”

Should Win: Viola Davis
Will Win: Viola Davis
Spoiler: Ruth Wilson

Analysis: Claire Danes has had her day, so has Julianna and Robin Wright. All comes down to Viola and Ruth. Both are very buzzed performances. Viola wins if they go for the “star power.” Ruth wins if they go with who ingenue. Viola Davis has a few nominations already under her belt with no wins, so I’m going with Viola.

 

Best Actor – TV Drama

Kevin Spacey “House Of Cards”
Clive Owen “The Knick”
James Spader “The Blacklist”
Dominic West “The Affair”
Liev Schreiber “Ray Donovan”

Should Win: Kevin Spacey
Will Win: Kevin Spacey
Spoiler: Clive Owen

McNulty in the house, everyone! Sadly, I don’t think he has a shot here. Neither does Liev. Clive Owen is a possibility as is James Spader. But with Kevin Spacey being Golden Globe-less, I think he takes it. If not, the members of the HFPA might not want to take the Metro anytime soon..

 

Best TV Series – Comedy/Musical

“Orange Is The New Black”
“Girls”
“Silicon Valley”
“Jane The Virgin”
“Transparent”

Should Win: “Orange Is The New Black”
Will Win: “Orange Is The New Black”
Spoiler: “Jane The Virgin”

OK…how the in the HELL does “VEEP” get snubbed once again? Over the horrid “Girls” and WTF nominee “Jane The Virgin?”

:side eye:

Anyway, I don’t see anyone winning here but “Orange Is The New Black.” I listed “Jane” as the spoiler because it’s the first CW show to be nominated for ANYTHING, and they’re going to push it down the HFPA’s throats. At least “Modern Family” isn’t nominated again.

 

Best Actor – TV Comedy/Musical

William H. Macy “Shameless”
Ricky Gervais “Derek”
Don Cheadle “House Of Lies”
Jeffrey Tambor “Transparent”
Louie CK “Louie”

Should Win: Jeffrey Tambor
Will Win: Jeffrey Tambor
Spoiler: Ricky Gervais

Jeffrey Tambor is getting RAVE reviews for his role in the Amazon series, and I think the HFPA will want to be ahead of the curve on this one. Ricky Gervais could sneak a win, since he’s been a host in recent years. And let’s not forget his speeches are pretty epic.

 

Best Actress – TV Comedy/Musical

Julia Louis Dreyfus “VEEP”
Gina Rodriguez “Jane The Virgin”
Lena Dunham “Girls”
Edie Falco “Nurse Jackie”
Taylor Schilling “Orange Is The New Black”

Should Win: Julia Louis Dreyfus/Taylor Scilling
Will Win: Taylor Schilling
Spoiler: Gina Rodriguez

Holy Flacco ! A “VEEP” sighting! While she deserves it, I don’t think JLD wins here. Taylor Schilling is in a show the HFPA LIKE, and her performance is pretty buzzed. Gina Rodriguez might win because..she’s new?   ::shrugs::

 

Best Actor -TV Movie/Miniseries

Mark Ruffalo “The Normal Heart”
Matthew McConaughey “True Detective”
Woody Harrelson “True Detective”
Billy Bob Thornton “Fargo”
Martin Freeman “Fargo”

Should Win: Matthew McConaughey
Will Win: Matthew McConaughey
Spoiler: Billy Bob Thornton

Alright, alright, alright..

 

Best Actress – TV Movie/Miniseries

Frances McDormand “Olive Kitteridge”
Maggie Gyllenhaal “The Honorable Woman”
Frances O Connor “The Missing”
Jessica Lange “American Horror Story: Freak Show”
Allison Tolman “Fargo”

Should Win: Frances McDormand
Will win: Frances McDormand
Spoiler: Allison Tolman

Frances McDormand wins here. The only threat is quirky Allison Tolman.

 

 

Best Supporting Actor – TV

Matt Bomer “The Normal Heart”
Alan Cumming “The Good Wife”
Bill Murray “Olive Kitteridge”
Jon Voight “Ray Donovan”
Colin Hanks “Fargo”

Should Win: Bill Murray
Will Win: Bill Murray
Spoiler: Matt Bomer

The only way I see Bill losing, is if the HFPA is pissed at the Emmy’s for not giving Matt Bomer his rightfully deserves award. Either way, good to see Matt getting recognition, he’s an underrated actor!

 

Best Supporting Actress – TV

Kathy Bates “American Horror Story: Freak Show”
Uzo Aduba “Orange Is The New Black”
Michelle Monaghan “True Detective”
Joanna Froggatt “Downton Abbey”
Allison Janney “Mom”

Should Win: Uzo Aduba / Kathy Bates
Will Win: Uzo Aduba
Spoiler: Allison Janney

Uzo Aduba is one of the biggest breakout TV stars in the past two years. The HFPA will want to reward her. And let’s face it..she deserves it.

That’s it! Tweet along with me Golden Globes night this Sunday at 8pm!
