We spend an awful lot of time filling these pages with sports previews and predictions, but it is worth remembering that there are a ton of other things to wager on here at YouWager.

If you are a bit of a TV and movie buff, why not have some fun this weekend by taking a crack at the potential winners of the Golden Globes, which you can catch on TV this Sunday night, January 6. We are going to take a look at the major categories to see if we can pick some winners, so let’s head down the red carpet and take a look at the nominees for Best Motion Picture Drama.

Crazy Rich Asians +1800

While many viewed this movie as a piece of fluff that basically rehashed every love story in the history of cinema, there was just something about Crazy Rich Asians that made it a breakout hit. The movie drew some comparisons to a big winner from a few years back – My Big Fat Greek Wedding – but I don’t see this one having the same success as that movie.

Mary Poppins Returns +1400

It’s always a risk to bring back a beloved character decades after the original hit the theaters, but that is exactly what Disney did, installing Emily Blunt to take over the Mary Poppins role from Julie Andrews.

The end result was a whole lot better than most people expected, mostly because the filmmakers chose to embrace the look and feel of the original, delivering a fresh new take that still felt familiar to those who loved the original Mary Poppins movie.

Vice +240

Politics isn’t usually much of a laughing matter, but the makers of Vice mined real events and characters to deliver some dark comedy gold. Former Batman star Christian Bale is almost unrecognizable as former VP Dick Cheney, while Sam Rockwell delivers another outstanding turn as George W. Bush. Given the current state of political affairs in the US, this one could prove to be too divisive to get the win.

The Favourite +165

Period pieces are very often a hit in the movie awards world, but The Favourite very much plays against type when compared to the likes of Howards End or Remains of the Day. Instead of being a deeply serious look at that moment in history, The Favourite goes all out for laughs in a manner that can best be described as bawdy and a little over the top. It’s a tone of fun for those who like their humor on the R-rated side of things, and it has a real shot at winning.

Golden Globe Winner Prediction: Green Book -125

This movie, which tells the tale of a white nightclub bouncer and his friendship with a black piano player in 1950’s NYC, looked like a she-in to win before controversy reared it’s ugly head. That all began when Viggo Mortenson, one of the stars of the movie, used the N-word at an interview panel promoting the film.

While everyone involved forgave the star, social media went into full-on meltdown. That aside, this is a great movie filled with outstanding writing and killer performances that is deserving of the win. Will the Hollywood Foreign Press focus on the work or the controversy?
