Amanda’s 2022 Golden Globes Predictions

By: Amanda Guarragi

It is the most hectic time of the year; award season. This year, the Golden Globes look a bit different and that is because of the backlash the HFPA received with their nominations and lack of diversity in its members. The Globes will not be televised, so it’s going to be an odd little award show, if you ask me. Nonetheless, award season will kickoff and there are some wonderful films in contention. So without further ado, here are my picks for each category:
