72nd Golden Globes Predictions

An oft-felt sentiment particularly at this juncture of the Oscar race is that suddenly the whole thing seems a foregone conclusion. Right now, there's no stopping Boyhood from nabbing the top honors; Michael Keaton's "feels good to be back home" speech at the Gotham Awards will very likely repeat come Oscar night; and Julianne Moore will finally ascend the podium as a winner. Surprises will probably be nonexistent, though pleasant ones like Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl would be very welcome. The lack of suspense notwithstanding, hope remains for the show itself as the power couple Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler reprise their hosting roles. Anyway, here's my predictions:
