EW’s Jess Cagle includes Whiplash, Boyhood, and Into the Woods in his Golden Globe picks

There are a lot of reasons to be stoked for this year’s Golden Globes. For one, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are getting on that Neil Patrick Harris-esque bandwagon of hosting ALL THE THINGS (alright, so this is their third time hosting this specific awards show – but we’ll keep sending the request letters to the government or Beyonce or whoever decides those matters).

The lineup of nominees is pretty swell too. In the last few years, television has truly shed its “idiot box” rep and produced gems like Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black, and Mad Men. This has also been a tremendous year for cinema. With masterpieces like Birdman and Boyhood drumming up Oscar buzz and hyped up popcorn movies (e.g. Into the Woods) receiving a few nods, Sunday night is sure to bring some well-deserved standing ovations and a few surprises.

People Magazine and Entertainment Weekly’s Editorial Director Jess Cagle recently shared a few of his Golden Globes picks on EW Radio. Jessica Shaw is all for Best Supporting Actor to go to Ed Norton for Birdman; however, Cagle thinks J.K. Simmons will take the title for Whiplash.

“I’m going to go with J.K. Simmons, only because I feel like he’s the quintessential supporting actor this year, and it was a very showy role, and he did a very, very good job of it,” Cagle said.

Cagle went on to say he would not be shocked if Into the Woods received a Golden Globe or two.

“God, I loved Into the Woods,” Cagle said. “Put your surprise face on. ‘What that old gay guy liked Into the Woods?’ AMAZING.”

Cagle is most impressed with the category of Best Supporting Actress. Patricia Arquette of Boyhood is his personal pick, but with Jessica Chastain, Keira Knightley, Emma Stone, and Meryl Streep up for the award, Cagle said, “I would not be surprised if this is the exact lineup for Supporting Actress for the Oscars.”
