This year’s winners will most likely include Leonardo DiCaprio for his role in the “The Revenant.” The actor’s raw performance has made him a favourite in almost all the award shows this season.
Among the women, Cate Blanchett might go on to win the award for Outstanding Performance by a female actor in a leading role.
In the drama category, we predict that “Mad Men” will bag the award for it’s stellar performance in the 50s period drama.
