The most famous, Golden Globes traditionally serve as an anticipating tool for the Oscars. But it divides the main categories into "drama" and "comedy" (the best movie, the best actor or actress) as much as the barometer.
Forecasts are slim because unlike in Oscar or other competitions, it is not the film professionals who voted but there are hundreds or more members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
AFP analyst Paul Dargarbaidian says, "Golden Globes are thought to be unpredictable, and so make them entertaining, but this year, there's a lot of eligibility in the big category, so anything is possible." For a special company, ComScore.

Named in the "Best Dramatic Actor" category, Bradley Cooper is known to have a neck and neck with Ram Malack, especially for the portrayal of Queen Group's singer, Freddy Mercuri, in "Bohemian Rhapsody".
On the comedy side, Christian Ballet's performance, strangely with Dick Cheney, can earn a Golden Globe for the best actor.
But the film "Vice" itself divides criticism deeply, which can win hard competition against competitive fighters like "Green Book", "La Priyal" and all three actresses (among the queen, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Coleman in Emma Stone, in her favor ) And "Mary Poppins Returns" have long been waiting for.
Emily Blunt, who takes over the role of home carer with magical authorities for 54 years after Julie Andrews, will also face Olivia Coleman in the "Comedy Best Actress" category.
