Whether you’re a movie buff or a celeb aficionado, this year’s Golden Globes is going to be jam-packed with your favorite actors, actresses pining for a little golden statue. Even though some of our preferred actors and directors didn’t get nominated, we’re still excited to tune in on Sunday, January 5th, to see who is going to win.

Of course, with the Golden Globes right around the corner, we had to join in on the fun to guess who would win from each category. And while we want everyone to take home an award (honestly, there were SO many good TV shows and movies this year), below are the shows, movies, and people we believe are going to be awarded a Golden Globe.

Best Motion Picture – Drama

Nominations:

– Joker

– Marriage Story

– The Two Popes

1917

– The Irishman

Who actually won:

1917.

Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

Nominations:

– Dolemite Is My Name
