If Anyone Ever Wins a Golden Globe, Who Will It Be?

With no awards show planned and the stars staying home, how will this year's Golden Globe winners receive their awards? Will Billy Bush traipse to Angelina Jolie's mansion and leave a statue on the porch? Will Harvey Weinstein dispatch an assistant to walk from New York to L.A. to pick up his Globe? Will some intern throw the awards in Priority Mail flat-rate boxes and ship them around the country?

However it happens, it seems probable some winners will be announced this weekend. Who will win and why? We don't know, but we're happy to fake it!
