[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Gong Yoo, Park Bo-gum, Park Bo-young, Park Shin-hye, and Namgoong Min nominated at the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards

Which drama wlll win? Which actor will go home empty-handed? And what are they going to wear on the red carpet? We'll find out on May 3rd when the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards air.

Nominations for the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards are out, and the drama categories are as hotly contested as ever. Leading the pack are ratings monster, "Goblin" (tvN) and SBS hit, "Dr. Romantic" with five nominations each, with "Oh Hae-Young Again" and "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" also making a strong showing.

My prediction is that either "Goblin" or "Dr. Romantic" will win for Best Drama, because high ratings tend to garner awards, while the Best Actor award will come down to either Gong Yoo, Han Suk-kyu, or Park Bo-gum for "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds", with Gong Yoo as the favorite to win. For best actress, I'll guess it's Seo Hyun-jin, though Park Shin-hye is also a strong possibility. But, really, I'll just be watching to see my favorites in their red carpet outfits.

Best Drama

"W" (MBC); "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" (KBS2); "Dr. Romantic" (SBS); "Goblin" (tvN); "Dear My Friends" (tvN)

Prediction: "Dr. Romantic" or "Goblin".

Best Director

Song Hyeon-wook ("Oh Hae-Young Again"); Yoo In-sik ("Dr. Romantic"); Lee Eung-bok ("Goblin"); Jeong Dae-yoon ("W"); Hong Jong-chan ("Dear My Friends")

Prediction: I have no idea, so I'll go with a prediction from left field and guess Song Hyeon-wook for "Oh Hae-Young Again".

Best Screenplay

Park Hae-yeong ("Oh Hae-Young Again"); Kang Eun-kyeong ("Dr. Romantic"); Kim Eun-sook ("Goblin"); Song Jae-jeong ("W"); Noh Hee-kyeong ("Dear My Friends")

Prediction: I'm a fan of Noh Hee-kyeong, but I'm pretty sure Kim Eun-sook is going to win. Also, does anyone else find it funny that the writer of "Oh Hae-Young Again" is named Hae-yeong (Or Hae-young)? No? Just me?
