Golden Globes' Predictions

Update: Final tally, 7 out of 14. Who knew that Paul Giamatti would beat out the star, Johnny Depp in the Comedy category, and it looks like there is no stopping The Social Network at this point. (Full list of winners, here.)

Tonight is the Golden Globes, one of the many award shows honoring the best in film of the past year. Unlike the Critic's Choice and the Academy, the Globes are voted entirely upon by the Foreign Press Association. The FPA has a tendency to sway more towards popular opinion, and they often come up with some of the more unoriginal award choices of the year, primarily because the Globes tend to cater to starpower more so than individual performances. The key this year, with this being the Foreign Press, I'll just say, keep an eye on The King's Speech possibly knocking out The Social Network, and keep in mind that stars typically always win here. Watch the Globes tonight on NBC, 8/7 central with host Ricky Gervais! Now, for my list of predictions (and for the nominees, check here):
