Golden Globe Predictions!

These are to be announced at 8am (EST) tomorrow so I need to get some predictions for this out there. With HFPA comes a lot of speculation – they tend to incorporate a boggling performance or two with their announcement – and with it, perhaps a more interesting result than the Oscars. Not as important and clearly done to connect to the vein of the mainstream, but they’re a fun/interesting award nonetheless. So here are the predictions

The films in best picture that are bracketed and have a cross through them are my alternative picks in case they go for six. I don’t really feel like doing that for each category, but I’ll be honest in saying what I would’ve guessed if they wind up having six nominees in any of the other categories. I’m a tad scrambled on lots of this, but whatever. They’ll either embrace Avatar or not – I figure they will but who knows if they’ll painfully ignore TDK.
