My Golden Globe Predictions

I love award shows, and the Globes are one of my favorites because the actors get to drink, which causes them to say bizarre things instead of the usual scripted banter. And this year Cher has a nominated movie, so there’s a chance we’ll see an outfit that’s a little off-center.
I’m having friends over to watch, but in the meantime I thought I’d offer my predictions in the movie/acting categories. These picks are not necessarily the ones I want to win, but those I think those wacky foreign press people will choose.

    Haha, can I put my money on that? After your prediction with Soriano, maybe you ARE psychic? =)
    Unfortunately I have only seen “Inception” and “Alice in Wonderland”, so I can’t make any predictions myself.

    I think the Soriano prediction was a fluke, Nadine. LOL. But I’m lucky to have seen the majority of the movies this year. It was a great crop in my opinion – plenty for all tastes.

    I think Bale will win, Jeff, but I’ve heard nothing but what a rotten guy he is. Just got an email from a friend whose neighbor in LA has been in a fight with him for years over a fence he put up. He’s ornery and self-centered, but he sure is great in The Fighter.

    I assume both will be there tonight, Virginia, so you should enjoy the show. Well, I know Natalie Portman will be there. Johnny Depp? Who knows.
