Golden Globe Predix

I don't blog about anything besides movie awards anymore... Oh, well.

The Golden Globes are this Sunday, and they will honor the best in film and television in 2008. Considered the predecessors to the Oscars, they are especially accurate in the acting categories. Not so much in the film categories. Last year, winner Atonement barely scraped a Best Picture nod at the Oscars. Still, the nominations match up fairly well, so without further ado (because there's much ado about Oscars), here are my 66th Annual Golden Globe predictions.
