For the best drama, I think Inception and Black swan are in battle. I wonder why ‘127 hours’ isn’t nominated though…
The nominations for best musical or comedy are a bit sad this year. And some of them aren’t even in the right category. ‘The Tourist’ was so not a comedy. And ‘The kids are all right’ was more a drama than anything else. Not that there was much to choose from. The only one worthy of a Golden Globe is ‘The kids are all right’. Even though I secretly still hope ‘The Tourist’ wins.
For best actor it’ll definitely be either James Franco or Mark Wahlberg.
Best actress is going to Natalie Portman. No contest. And why in the world is Halle Berry nominated for ‘Frankie and Alice’??
Best actor in a musical or comedy goes to Johnny Depp. Probably for ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Best actress in a musical or comedy… ANGELINA JOLIE!!! I know, I know, it wasn’t one of her best performances and she technically doesn’t deserve it, sigh… One of the leads from ‘The kids are all right’ then.
I’m not sure about best supporting actor in drama. The nominees are all really great. But I’m guessing Christian Bale will take it home.
I really think Mila Kunis’ performance is overrated in ‘Black swan’. It’s like she’s just tagging along with the greatness of the lead actress and film itself. She was fine, but not outstanding. Helena Bonham Carter deserves the GG for best supporting actress in drama much more.
Best director… that’s a tough one. I really have no clue which one will win.
Ok, even though ‘The Tourist’ wasn’t a great film, the score was fantastic! They should’ve been nominated if not win.
‘Social network’ and ‘127 hours’ had equally great screenplays.
For best animated film I had high hopes for ‘Megamind’. But ‘Despicable me’ was nice also.
Best foreign film: ‘Biutiful’.
When I noticed the hoopla around ‘Inception’ when it got released, I thought 2011’s award season would be theirs. But ‘Black swan’ has proven a worthy competitor. What really came to my attention is the amount of great drama films and the lack of good comedies. I mean, people keep complaining about the dull nominees for the comedy section, but there really was nothing to choose from.
There’s a big chance all my assumptions are totally wrong, but isn’t that the fun of award shows? The unpredictability and surprise element.
