2011 Golden Globe Predictions

Well folks The nominees for the Golden Globes were announced this week and with Ricky Gervais returning as host. This could turn out to be a more exciting show  than the Oscars.   Here is a list of just the movie categories and my predictions

***Note***   These are only just guesses because I have not seen many of the nominated films listed here

Best Motion Picture - Drama

The Descendants.


The Help


The Ides of March

War Horse.

Who Will Win

The Descendants.

I hear nothing but good things about this flick which is odd because I found the ads to be rather dull.  Nevertheless Director Alexander Payne's latest has managed to garner a whopping 90 % approval on so who am I to complain. 

Best Actor- Drama

Brad Pitt- Money Ball

Ryan Gosling - The Ides of March

Leonardo DiCaprio - J. Edgar

Michael Fassbender - Shame

George Clooney - The Descendants

Who Will Win

Michael Fassbender.

I want "Shame" to be advertised more and I want the whole controversy about the NC-17 rating to be demolished.  That is the sole reason why I want Fassbender to win.  Besides it takes a lot of courage to portray sex open and honestly on screen. 

Best Actress - Drama

Tilda Swinton - We Need to Talk about Kevin

Glen Close - Albert Nobbs

Rooney Mara - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Viola Davis - The Help

Meryl Streep - The Iron Lady

Who Will Win.

Tilda Swinton - We Need To Talk About Kevin

(Clip Curtosey of BBC Films)

This was a tough choice, but I believe Tilda will take home the award as a mother who is trying to uncover the facts of an tragedy her son may have caused. 

Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy

The Artist

Midnight In Paris



My Week with Marilyn

Who Will Win.

Midnight in Paris.

(Clip Curtosey of Sony Pictures Classics )

As much as I am rooting for "The Artist".  I believe Woody Allen's time traveling comedy will pick up the award this year.  It is a movie that keeps getting better and better every time you watch it.  Even if you hate Woody Allen movies.

Best Actor - Comedy

Ryan Gosling - Crazy Stupid Love

Jean Dujardin - The Artist

Brendan Gleeson - The Gaurd

Joseph Gordon Levit - 50/50

Owen Wilson - Midnight in Paris

Who Will Win

Jean Dujardin - The Artist

I expect a win for him at the Oscars too and I have not even seen this movie yet.  A performance without saying one word is very difficult and I hope he gets some sort of compensation for his work.

Best Actress -  Musical or Comedy

Jodie Foster - Carnage

Charlize Theron - Young Adult

Michelle Williams - My Week with Marilyn

Kate Winslet - Carnage

Kristin Wiig - Bridesmaids

Who Will Win

Kristin Wiig - Bridesmaids.

(Clip Curtosey of Universal Pictures)

Yes I know it's a long shot, but the rest of the nominees are more dramatic roles than  comedic ones.  I for one would love to see a comedian take home the award.   Plus I'm sure Michelle Williams would rather be nominated for an Oscar instead of winning a comedic award at the globes.

Best Director

Woody Allen - Midnight In Paris

Michael Hazanavicius - The Artist

George Clooney - The Ides Of March

Martin Scorsese - Hugo

Alexander Payne - The Descendants

Who Will Win

Michael Hazanavicius - The Artist

(Clip Curtosey of The Weinstein Company)

It's not an easy task to make a movie that is completely silent and have it be enjoyable without being gimmicky.  Plus it has some old school charm that voters just love.

Check to see if my predictions are correct when The Golden Globe Award Show comes to your T.V. on JAN- 15 2012
