Award season has just started picking up and you know what that means—fun, fashion, and lots of films. The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards are being held this Sunday and, as an important precursor to the Oscars, plenty of predictions are sure to be made based off the major winners and nominees. Since the opinions of critics and audiences are always famously at odds, make your own judgments before the big announcements and be sure to catch all of the year's best films before the show.
