Golden Globes Predictions

The Golden Globes airs on NBC tonight with Ricky Gervais as host. Below are my not-too-confident predictions which is a good thing since it means that most of the categories can go any which way. Sure Meryl Streep and Kathryn Bigelow will probably win along with Mad Men and Up in all of their respective categories. But for the most part, I can see a lot of different combinations of winners.

Click here to see my thoughts on the nominations: Film Nominees and TV Nominees.

Note that the above are predictions and not who I necessarily want to win. There's really only a handful of people I'm rooting for to win--Meryl Streep, Neil Patrick Harris, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Jane Lynch. As you can see, I've predicted all of them to win as well. I feel as if I'm jinxing them by doing that, but hey sometimes you got to go with your heart. I'm also rooting for Modern Family and (500) Days of Summer to win Best Comedy in TV and Film, but I'm predicting their flashier musical rivals to win over the HFPA. We'll see what happens!
