Golden Globe Predix

The Globes are a finicky bunch. They like STARS, but they also like GLAMOUR, but they also don't wanna look behind the times. Unfortunately, Memoirs of a Geisha probably looked like a great choice at the time they made their nominations (not anymore). THey do also like to pick up the slack for people. Witness 2003 when Maria Bello (The Cooler) and Hope Davis (American Splendor) got nominated.

edit: okay, so I originally had Memoirs in Best Picture but I didn't have it in any other category other than Score. And while I actually think it will place, I'm gonna swap it out for something (History of Violence or Match Point... i can't decide)

okay, i decided to go on a limb and say A History of Violence. I went with that due to Mulholland Drive. lol. Memoirs of a Geisha is so not getting 1 nomination (score). It's gonna get more, but i can't decide who to axe. And now I need to go get ready for work. Whatever.

We'll see.

Can I just tell people that I thought Angelina Jolie would be nominated here way back in whatever month Mr & Mrs Smith, and I am not stealing the idea for Nat. I actually mentioned it a few times of various blogs (Nat i think, Polands, etc that I wouldnt be surprised she not nommed in Best Actress M/C). just so you know I have been thinking this for half the year!

Supporting Actor
Gary Beach, The Producers
Matt Dillon, Crash
Jake Gyllenhaal, Brokeback Mountain

For some reason, I don't see Clooney getting in here. I don't know why.

Supporting Actress
Sandra Bullock, Crash
Scarlett Johansson, Match Point
Diane Keaton, The Family Stone
Uma Thurman, The Producers

Okay, true story. I had a dream the other night that Sandra Bullock was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Globes. is that not weird? So I thought I'd test my REM and put her down. I don't really expect her to get in but what a story if she does!

I've probably got all this wrong. But whatevs.

See? You just do the math, and Brokeback gets 8 noms. It will be a big story. Everyone will be saying "Hollywood loves gay cowboys" etc. as it cleans up with awards.

aHoV might do well.

I think Match Point will do well.

I don't see Memoirs doing well, though I guess it might survive some categories in this one race.

How embarrassing for Rob Marshall and company to go to this ceremony and be all "yes, thank you for recognizing us, we love our picture" when in reality, people don't actually like it. It's so very George Bush at public events.

Rob Marshall creeps me out for some reason. He has an unpleasant-looking face, I think.

The few pics of Marshall I've seen have a certain creepy quality to them.

Lest we remember, Cold Mountain received 8 nominations as well. mmhmmm (not that I'm comparing their quality)
