The TV nominations could be called a giant shot in the dark, but they aren’t my main focus. Original Song is difficult also. Globes love the celebrity so I’m expecting Mary J or Elton John to win this. Surprisingly, Screenplay is difficult this year, but I’m expecting the Globes to follow the BFCA and award Woody Allen for his clever “Midnight in Paris.” Don’t rule out “The Descendants” or “The Artist” here. Actress Drama is a race between Davis and Streep, neither would be a surprise. I think Clooney’s winning streak will continue, though the Globes could easily award Brad Pitt for his work in “Moneyball.” I’m one of the few out there predicting “The Help” over “The Descendants.” “The Help” is probably the eventual SAG ensemble winner, and is most likely winning at least one acting award (probably two); it’s a universally loved feel good movie.

That’s what I got for now. Check back later on in the week for a post-Globe analysis. Cheers!
