Golden Globe Predictions

Best Picture - Drama - The Social Network
Runner-Up: The King's Speech, The Fighter
Commentary: I know that most pundits are going with TKS here to win, and it has a great shot of doing so. But I'm guessing that The Social Network continues its streak. Look out for The Fighter.

Best Picture - Comedy - The Kids Are All Right
Runner Up - Burlesque
Commentary: Because if any thing else wins, I'll just quit.

Best Actor - Drama - Colin Firth "The King's Speech"
Runner Up - James Franco "127 Hours"
Commentary: Firth seems to be a major lock for the rest of the awards season.

Best Actor - Comedy - Johnny Depp "Alice in Wonderland"
Runner Up - Kevin Spacey "Casino Jack:
Commentary: While I would be happier if one of the other nominees won, I feel that two nominations will win the night, and since The Tourist stunk worse than a landfill, I'm going with the Mad Hatter.

Best Actress - Drama - Natalie Portman "Black Swan"
Runner Up - Nicole Kidman "Rabbit Hole"
Commentary: Everything points towards Portman, but watch out for Kidman, as the HFPA loves her, and is not afraid to reward her. Could be the upset of the night.

Best Actress - Comedy - Annette Bening "The Kids Are All Right"
Runner Up - Julianne Moore "The Kids Are All Right", actually anyone except Jolie.
Commentary - Despite the Angelina Jolie nod, this is actually a nice race, but I don't think anyone stands a chance against the great Annette.

Best Supporting Actor - Christian Bale "The Fighter"
Runner Up - Geoffrey Rush "The King's Speech"
Commentary - I think that Bale is going to ride his wave all the way to a well-deserved Oscar, including this pit stop.

Best Supporting Actress - Amy Adams "The Fighter:
Runner Up: Helena Bonham Carter "The King's Speech" and Melissa Leo "The Fighter"
Commentary: I think that Leo could easily take this, but the Globes are star whores, so I think that Carter and Adams have the best shot, and I'm going with Amy for the win.

Best Director - David Fincher "The Social Network"
Runner Up - Darren Aronofsky "Black Swan"
Commentary - I think he's a lock from now on.

Best Screenplay - Aaron Sorkin "The Social Network"
Runner Up - Christopher Nolan "Inception" and David Seidler "The King's Speech"
Commentary: Better happen.

Best Animated Feature - Toy Story 3
Commentary: Duh

Best Original Score - Alexadre Desplat "The King's Speech"

Best Original Song -  Diane Warren "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me Yet" from "Burlesque"
