our predictions and possibilities for “Anatomy of a Fall”

Place your bets, no more bets. Tonight the 81st Golden Globes ceremony, the awards presented by the foreign press in Hollywood, will take place at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

Although they have lost prestige after the numerous controversies in recent years, regarding the lack of diversity and the opacity of their operation, with suspicions of passive corruption, the Golden Globes continue to be an important step in the Oscar campaign. The awards of the foreign press based in Hollywood often give ideas of what is good to award to the many undecided members or, above all, to those who have not seen all the films… For night owls, the 81st ceremony will be broadcast on Canal + from 2 a.m. But here, without further ado, our predictions about the main categories.

Best dramatic film

“Oppenheimer” by Christopher Nolan
“The Flower Moon Killers” by Martin Scorsese
«Master» by Bradley Cooper
“Past Lives” by Celine Song
“The Area of ​​Interest” by Jonathan Glazer
“Anatomy of a Fall” by Justine Triet

The rest after this announcement.

Our prediction: “The Flower Moon Killers” by Martin Scorsese

The rest after this announcement.

A very indecisive category. If at first we thought that the duel would be reduced to a clash between “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “Oppenheimer”, in the final stretch an outsider emerged: the beautiful “Past Lives” by Celine Song. However, we believe that the drama of the Osage Indians will convince voters by the strength of its symbol.

Best comedy or musical

“Barbie” by Greta Gerwig
“Poor Creatures” by Yorgos Lanthimos
“American Fiction” by Cord Jefferson
« Winter Holidays » by Alexander Payne
« May December » by Todd Haynes
“Air” by Ben Affleck

Our prediction: “Barbie” by Greta Gerwig

Much less suspense here. A box office hit, “Barbie” will crush the competition even if “Winter Break” is a true critical success.

Best actor in a dramatic film

Bradley Cooper, Teacher
Cillian Murphy, Oppenheimer
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Moonflower Killers
Colmán Domingo, Rustin
Andrew Scott, without even knowing each other
Barry Keoghan, Saltburn

Our prediction: Cillian Murphy, Oppenheimer

Two megastars against an actor in the role of his life… Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio against Cillian Murphy. The latter is the favorite of specialized sites. It is true that he is great in “Oppenheimer” and in almost every shot of the film.

Best actress in a dramatic film

Lily Gladstone, Moonflower Killers
Carey Mulligan, Teacher
Sandra Hüller, Anatomy of a Fall
Annette Bening, Unsinkable
Greta Lee, Past Lives
Cailee Spaeny, Priscila

Our prediction: Lily Gladstone, The Flower Moon Killers

She represents all the forgotten Native Americans from previous awards ceremonies. Lily Gladstone seems to have no opponent, although Carey Mulligan impresses in “Maestro.”

Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical

Nicolas Cage, Dream Scenery
Timothée Chalamet, Wonka
Matt Damon, Air
Paul Giamatti, winter vacation
Joaquin Phoenix, Beau is afraid
Jeffrey Wright, American fiction

Our Forecast: Jeffrey Wright, American Fiction

A more indecisive category. Paul Giamatti and Timothée Chalamet would be two good winners, but Jeffrey Wright’s popularity continues to increase due to his performance in “American Fiction”, unpublished in France but winner of the Audience Award at the Toronto Festival.

Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Film

Emma Stone, Poor Creatures
Margot Robbie, Barbie
Natalie Portman, May December
Fantasy Barrino, The Color Purple
Alma Pöysti, Dead Leaves
Jennifer Lawrence, The Challenge

Our prediction: Margot Robbie, Barbie

“I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world,” sang the band Aqua. Will Margot Robbie sing the hit of our Swedish friends? In any case, she can prepare for her acceptance speech.

Best foreign language film

“Anatomy of a Fall” by Justine Triet
“The circle of snow” by Juan Antonio Bayona
“Dead Leaves” by Aki Kaurismäki
“I, Captain” by Matteo Garrone
“Past Lives” by Celine Song
“The Area of ​​Interest” by Jonathan Glazer

Our prediction: “Anatomy of a Fall” by Justine Triet but…

This is the category of all hopes. If “Anatomy of a Fall” received four nominations – film, screenplay, actress (Sandra Hüller) and best foreign language film – the Palme d’Or at the last Cannes Festival only has – a priori – one real chance of winning an award. . . But the competition promises to be tough, with two outsiders: “The Zone of Interest” by Jonathan Glazer, Grand Prix at the Cannes Festival but whose experimental form can be confusing, and “The Circle of Snows” by Juan Antonio Bayona, a film- Disaster driven by Netflix and more “mainstream”. But it is above all the presence of “Past Lives” in this category that makes us doubt the victory of “Anatomy of a Fall”. Celine Song’s romantic-immigration comedy is the “Sleeper” of this awards season – the “small” film that ends up turning the tables, like “Moonlight” or “Coda” – but its presence among foreign films could divert voters towards the category of best dramatic film.
