Predict the Globes...


Tonight is the night!  The Golden Globes will light up our evening by handing out awards to people not nominated for Oscar and we'll lose our shit because that means that predicting the Oscar winners is going to get harder and harder.  Alas, here are my last minute predictions (sort of what I've been thinking for a while, regardless of Oscar nominations Tuesday).  The thing is, these winners were voted on before Oscar made their announcement, so the Globes didn't have a chance to try and 'predict the Oscars' here...they had to vote blindly and then hope they got it right.  Chances are, they didn't (Affleck and DiCaprio should be winning tonight with no chance of winning an Oscar).

Here's what I'm thinking:

Winner: Argo
Alternate: Life of Pi

Best Motion Picture (Comedy/Musical)
Winner: Les Miserables
Alternate: Silver Linings Playbook

  1. Other than Silver Linings Playbook in Screenplay and Wreck-It Ralph in Animated Feature, these are my exact winner predictions. I wonder if Lincoln and Frankenweenie will take those categories instead.

    1. It's such a toss at this point...I'm preparing myself for some shocks...like Life of Pi.
