My Golden Globes Predictions.

Eek, suddenly remembered that Golden Globes is tomorrow morning (Malaysian time), so I'll be making my predictions right now. Yep, I love keeping track on these award shows that lead to the Oscars, been doing that ever since I was a kid. So... here we go!

Oh wait, before I go there, I just wanna tell y'all that I've just watched my Resident Evil 2 DVD last night. And it's surprisingly entertaining. I think it's way better than the first movie.

All right, back to the Golden Globes. I'm not predicting for every single category, just the film-related ones.

Best Picture - Drama: I'm going with Million Dollar Baby instead of The Aviator. Both movies are drawing equally rave reviews, but I was pretty underwhelmed by the latter flick, so yeah, Million Dollar Baby it is.

Best Picture - Musical or Comedy: Sideways. I'll delete this blog immediately if I'm wrong.

Actor In A Leading Role - Drama: This is a tough one. It's either Leonardo Dicaprio (The Aviator)or Johnny Depp (Finding Neverland). Um... I'll go with Leo. Johnny was good in Finding Neverland, but he didn't go nuts like Leo did in The Aviator, Golden Globes peeps like people who go nuts in biopics. Look at Russell Crowe for A Beautiful Mind.

Actor In A Leading Role - Musical Or Comedy: As much as I want Jim Carrey (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) to win this one, Jamie Foxx (Ray) is the hot favourite for the Oscars, so yes, he'll win this one. I used to like watching 'The Jamie Foxx Show' on TV years ago, but never had I ever expected him to become an Oscar hot favourite, man.

Actress In A Leading Role - Drama: Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby)'s the hot favourite. So I'll go with her. But there's a possibility that they might honour Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake) instead since Hilary had won both the Golden Globes and the Oscar before.

Actress In A Leading Role - Musical or Comedy: I thought Kate Winslet was terrific in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (she was better in this movie than in Titanic). But most peeps sez that Annette Bening's the favourite for this one. I'm sticking with Kate.

Actor In A Supporting Role: Thomas Haden Church (Sideways) has been winning a couple of awards during the past few weeks, so I think he'll get this one as well.

Actress In A Supporting Role: Virginie Madsen (Sideways). She's going through what Thomas Haden Church's going through (won a couple of awards during the past few weeks), so she'll win this one too.

Director: It's between Martin Scorsese (The Aviator) and Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby). Um... I doubt Marty's going to get away empty-handed from any award shows after the humiliation he suffered during the 2002 Oscars (his Gangs in New York got nominated for ten awards, but won zero). So yeah, Marty wins this one.

Screenplay: I'm rooting for Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind's Charlie Kaufman. But Alexander Payne will win for Sideways.

Foreign Film: The House of Flying Daggers is pretty shitty. The Motorcycle Diaries is freaking awesome. But The Long Engagement is an epic, large-scaled French film, so it'll win... even though I'm rooting for The Motorcycle Diaries.

That's all. Let's how accurate my predictions are tomorrow.
