  1. I thought that Hitchocock was going to be under comedy not drama?

  2. Golden Globe for Best Actress (Motion Picture Musical or Comedy) = Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook)
    Golden Globe for Best Actress (Motion Picture Drama) = Jessica Chastain (ZDT) (or Cotillard)

  3. Sasha Stone

    I went by Gold Derby’s list …I think Tom knows what he’s doing in that regard.

  4. I think they’ll nominate Matthew Mcconaughey, unlike the Oscars.

  5. In Best Song category are 5 nominees.

  6. I just want Tom Cruise to get nominated for ROCK OF AGES. I love that movie! :D

  7. Brett McNeill

    It’s a sad day when it comes down to Seven Psychopaths and Ted for Best Pic and Psychopaths is the leap of faith. Also I think if Perks of Being a Wallflower was being judged as a Comedy, it would have gotten so many nominations. As it is I feel like Magic Mike will get at least three (Pic (comedy, actor and S actor)

  8. If Jennifer is nominated for Drama (Hunger Games) and Comedy (SLP) = double nominee! Who knows? After all, The Santa Barbara International Film Festival said that Jennifer Lawrence will be presented with its Outstanding Performer of the Year Award on Jan 26. For Silver AND Hunger Games…

  9. Ascaris born

    les mis, lincoln, and pi will dominate the globes.

  10. The race is definitely tightening up in a few places. So exciting. I may just have to do this again next season!

    SLP winning best comedy/musical
    ZDT winning best drama
    Chastain best drama
    Lawrence best comedy
    Cooper best comedy
    DDL best drama
    MM or Leo best supporting
    Sally Field best supporting
    That’s all I got for now. Still need to firm up a few spots.

  11. Hitchcock is crazily being considered a Drama. Would have gotten in as a Comedy I believe, at least for Actor and Actress.

  12. The Sessions is considered a Drama? That’s odd.

    Also, I think they might place Anna Karenina in the Comedy/Musical category a la Pride & Prejudice, if only because of how beautifully it’s all choreographed.

  14. Filling this out, I think I must be expecting some really wacky Globe nominations this year. Is it just a really odd year? I feel as though a lot of obvious choices just didn’t feel right to me.

    Come nominations morning, my predictions will either make me look like a psychic or an idiot. (Probably the latter)

  15. I hope Anne Hathaway wins at least 1 award this award season! She’s definitely dedicated to her craft.

  16. As doubtful as it is my fingers are crossed for The Perks of Being a Wallflower to get a nomination for something. Even though it’s a Drama I do think if they’d campaigned it for Comedy it could have been nominated. The only possibility I could see right now is Emma Watson getting a Best Supporting Actress nomination.

    While I didn’t predict it I could easily see Pitch Perfect being nominated for Best Picture (Musical/Comedy).

  17. OT – Bigelow and Boal are scheduled to be on Charlie Rose tonight.

  18. Antoinette

    @steve50 Thanks. Watching it.

  19. Tero Heikkinen

    Casey, I think you are very close.

    Quick check says Bill Murray = Tom Cruise.

  20. @tero
    Thanks. And yes I could see cruise sneak in here (ala his nomination for tropic thunder)

  21. What about the most viable surprises ? My take :

    Anna Karenina in main categories (they gave Atonement Best Picture)
    Halle Berry (if they nominated her for ‘Frankie & Alice’…)
    Rebel Wilson or Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect was a critically acclaimed sleeper hit)
    Seth Macfarlane (I could see him surprise in Comedy Actor)
    Channing Tatum (breakout star of the year with two strong Comedy-contenders)
    Nicole Kidman (the HFPA does love her…also they LOVE star-power)
    Whitney Houston (sentimental vote for Sparkle)
    Maggie Smith scoring 3 (!) nominations (Quartet, Marigold, Downton Abbey)
    Lindsay Lohan (the controversy-addict HFPA could easily go for her atrocious ‘Liz’)

    I also wouldn’t be surprised at all, if the HFPA once again decided to nominate the ‘it girl(s)’ in multiple categories : Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises) and/or Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games).

  22. Casey, Tom Cruise could sneak in, the HFPA loves nominating big stars for lesser films (The Tourist, anyone?), but I don’t think the Tropic Thunder-comparison will fly. That was critically acclaimed AND a Box Office hit, Rock of Ages is neither.

  23. Am I the only one, who feels The Master (and maybe even Django) could get the truegrit-treatment from the HFPA ?

  25. Argh! My computer….

  26. I don’t know what to think. Django Unchained is a Western (Remember when True Grit didn’t score a single nod?), but it’s Tarantino and the Globes love him.

    Lincoln is a very American story, but it IS Spielberg, DDL, Sally Field, TLJ.

    Moonrise Kingdom is almost too American, but it may be quirky enough for them ala Little Miss Sunshine.

    Tom Cruise and RDJ got nominated, but Melissa McCarthy missed out on what we had assumed would be a very easy nomination. What shall happen to Matthew McConaughey?

    Alexandre Desplat has 4 eligible scores (5, if you count Rust & Bone)…how will they vote? My favorite of the 4 is Moonrise Kingdom (a mix of his stellar work in CCBB and Fantastic Mr. Fox)…Argo is probably the popular favorite, while Rise of the Guardians is more likely to get him a song nomination. Zero Dark Thirty could likely be a worthy contender. Could he nab 2 score nods and a song nod? If so, which composer does he bump out?

  27. phantom, I too could see Kendrick or Wilson being nominated for Pitch Perfect. I didn’t predict it yet I do have a difficult time seeing them shutting this film out.

    BTW, why is Imogene one of the choices? Are they having a qualifying run for that or something? Because I haven’t seen any ads for it and it’s not getting released until next year.

  28. Moonrise Kingdom is a comedy? In what universe?

  29. sorry but for the song you can only pick 1 song and two write ins? is that correct?

  30. alan of montreal

    Smashed is a comedy?

  31. m1, of course Moonrise Kingdom is a comedy! It’s certainly not a drama.

  32. Come on Golden Globes, nominate The Perks of Being a Wallflower for something!

  33. Might there be a good chance that Django Unchained ends up being nominated in the comedy categories? It is the HFPA.
