Golden Globe Predictions

Golden Globe Predictions

In honor of the Golden Globes’ fantastic decision to make Ricky Gervais the ceremony’s first host in some 15 years (that upped my excitement in watching the show by a good 50%), I figured I’d take a first shot at predicting this year’s nominations. Some of my category decisions (“Up In The Air,” “A Serious Man,” “Inglourious Basterds” as comedy/musicals?) are not at all official, so bear with that…. and I’m also just copping out and going for 6 in each category since half of them will probably end up like that anyway (there’s an asterisk beside the one to go if its just 5).

Best Drama:
An Education
The Hurt Locker
The Lovely Bones*
A Single Man
