The best and brightest in American film and television will be honored this Sunday (8 PM ET, NBC) at the Golden Globe Awards, live from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. Winners will be selected by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which has run the show since the beginning in 1943.
This year’s favorite for Best Motion Picture Drama is Manchester By the Sea at –150. The only viable competitor is Moonlight at +140. Manchester By the Sea has more star power, including Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams, so it’s more likely to earn the HFPA vote. Affleck is also the clear favorite at –350 to win Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama after putting in a career-defining performance.
The Best Actress race is even more lopsided. Natalie Portman is –400 to win for her starring role in Jackie, where she portrays Jacqueline Kennedy. Both Portman and the film have received strong critical acclaim, with Oscars likely to follow. In the musical/comedy category, La La Land is the runaway favorite at –5000, with female lead Emma Stone pegged at –600 to win Best Actress, and Damian Chazelle checking in at –400 for Best Director.
