Las Vegas Makes Its 2015 Golden Globes Predictions
Las Vegas Sports-Betting Service, DocSports.com Announces Predictions for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards
Handicapper, Raphael Esparza explains his picks as provided by sportsbook, Bovada.
Best Motion Picture, Drama
"The Imitation Game" 4-1
"The Theory of Everything" 15-1
"Boyhood" is the clear favorite in this category and I still can’t believe took 11 years to make from start to finish. Breaking "Selma" at 14-1 has outstanding value and if you are looking to score big on an underdog jump on this price. Still Boyhood will be hard to beat and Boyhood is my predicted winner.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
Julianne Moore "Still Alice" -800
Rosamund Pike "Gone Girl" 14-1
Reese Witherspoon "Wild" 6-1
Felicity Jones "The Theory of Everything" 16-1
Jennifer Aniston "Cake" 20-1
Really shocked that Julianne Moore was such a big favorite in this category. In my eyes this category is between Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon and getting Witherspoon at 6-1 is mind blowing. I would love to say Mrs. Witherspoon wins here but I just watched "Still Alice" and if I laid heavy chalk I would be playing the -800 but I can’t play this price. Julianne Moore wins here and well deserved.
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama
Eddie Redmayne "The Theory of Everything" -200
Steve Carell "Foxcatcher"
Benedict Cumberbatch "The Imitation Game" 2-1
David Oyelowo "Selma" 15-1
Jake Gyllenhaal "Nightcrawler"
Sorry oddsmakers I think you have the wrong favorite here. No disrespect to Eddie Redmayne but the favorite here should have been Benedict Cumberbatch. I’m shocked how high David Oyelowo is. If he wins, the books will get crushed. My winner is Benedict Cumberbatch but you know I will have a live ticket on David Oyelowo.
Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
"Into The Woods" 6-1
"The Grand Budapest Hotel" 6-1
"St. Vincent" 30-1
I loved the movie "Birdman". Michael Keaton and Ed Norton were outstanding but wow -600 in this category. I’m throwing out "Into the Woods"-it will probably win- but I’m picking an upset here. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" was well written and at 6-1 I’m throwing out the huge underdog in this category.
Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Julianne Moore "Maps to the Stars" 12-1
Amy Adams "Big Eyes" -110
Emily Blunt "Into the Woods" +100
Helen Mirren "The Hundred Foot Journey" 25-1
Quvenzhane Wallis "Annie" 25-1
Wide open is this category and I’m sure the TV viewers want to see Quvenzhane Wallis win but sorry she has no shot. I loved Amy Adams in "Big Eyes" but it wasn't her best acting as of late. I see Emily Blunt stealing this from Amy Adams. I might throw down some coin at Helen Mirren at 25-1 just because it’s Helen Mirren.
Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Michael Keaton "Birdman" -1000
Bill Murray "St. Vincent" 20-1
Ralph Fiennes "The Grand Budapest Hotel" 8-1
Christoph Waltz "Big Eyes" 20-1
Joaquin Phoenix "Inherent Vice" 10-1
This category is Michael Keaton to lose and I don’t see him losing. He was brilliant in this movie and if he doesn't win I would be shocked. Joaquin Phoenix at 10-1 looks tempting but again Michael Keaton should start writing his speech.
Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture
Jessica Chastain "A Most Violent Year" 12-1
Keira Knightley "The Imitation Game" 20-1
Patricia Arquette "Boyhood" -700
Meryl Streep "Into The Woods" 12-1
Emma Stone "Birdman" 7-1
Some books don’t have this category up because how heavy favorite Patricia Arquette is and that is probably smart. She should have no problem winning Best Supporting Actress but it does look and feel weird to see the all mighty Meryl Streep at 12-1.
Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
Ethan Hawke "Boyhood" 20-1
Robert Duvall "The Judge" 30-1
Edward Norton "Birdman" 6-1
J.K. Simmons "Whiplash" -1000
Mark Ruffalo "Foxcatcher"
Some books don’t have this category up because how heavy favorite J.K. Simmons is and that is probably smart again. How funny that this category has some big actors in it and the heavy favorite is a not so house sold name but after you watch this movie and see Simmons win he will be a house hold name.
Best Director – Motion Picture
Ava DuVernay "Selma" 12-1
Wes Anderson "The Grand Budapest Hotel" 20-1
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu "Birdman" 4-1
David Fincher "Gone Girl" 20-1
Richard Linklater "Boyhood" -500
Here is another category that I don’t agree with the oddsmakers. Yes "Boyhood" was good, but the Director for "Birdman", Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu did an outstanding job. I'm taking one of the underdogs here and calling for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu to take home the prize.
