Netflix is gunning for glory with entries such as “The Irishman,” “Marriage Story” and “Dolemite Is My Name,” while “Joker” could add some box office mojo to the drama competition. And then there’s “Cats.”
Nominees for the 77th annual Golden Globes will be announced on Dec. 9. Predicting the Golden Globes nominations is a bit of a **** shoot, given the small HFPA membership and its penchant for surprise. But here is what Variety thinks may be in the running.

Once - Time - Hollywood - Category - Category
If “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” wasn’t competing in the comedy/musical category, I’m afraid the category would have films all directed by straight white cis men. But with “Once Upon” out...
