Golden Globe Predictions

As of yesterday, the HFPA announcement is a month away. Here's my second stab at Golden Globe predictions for the year. Things might shake out differently as more and more HFPA screenings take place, but as of now it's looking like:

Best Picture - Drama
"The Departed"
"The Queen"
"World Trade Center"

Best Picture - Comedy/Musical
"The Devil Wears Prada"
"Little Miss Sunshine"
"Thank You for Smoking"

Best Actor - Drama
Leonardo DiCaprio, "The Departed"
Ryan Gosling, "Half Nelson"
Peter O'Toole, "Venus"
Will Smith, "The Pursuit of Happyness"
Forrest Whitaker, "The Last King of Scotland"

Best Actress - Drama
Cate Blanchett, "The Good German"
Penelope Cruz, "Volver"
Judi Dench, "Notes on a Scandal"
Helen Mirren, "The Queen"
Kate Winslet, "Little Children"

Best Actor - Comedy/Musical
Sacha Baron Cohen, "Borat"
Aaron Eckhart, "Thank You for Smoking"
Will Ferrell, "Stranger Than Fiction"
Jamie Foxx, "Dreamgirls"
Greg Kinnear, "Little Miss Sunshine"

Best Actress - Comedy/Musical
Annette Bening, "Running with Scissors"
Toni Collette, "Little Miss Sunshine"
Beyonce Knowles, "Dreamgirls"
Meryl Streep, "The Devil Wears Prada"
Renee Zellweger, "Miss Potter"

The supportin gcategories are confusing me somewhat lately. Well, supporting actress anyway. I'll deal with that at a later date.


"Babel" does seem to be the sort of film that the HFPA would go for.

On a complete aside, it would not surprise me if Hans Zimmer got a fluke score here for "The Da Vinci Code". The HFPA loves him, and they like Columbia a fair bit as well.

Zimmer has a decent shot all around this year to be honest.
