I am so behind!

Posted on January 17, 2010. Filed under: News | Tags: , , , , |

You may have noticed that compared to last year there is a deplorable lack of awards chatter on this blog.  I blame my job.  But since it’s the Golden Globes tonight I’m determined to get a few lines up about the upcoming awards.  Unlike last year, there’s no obvious front runner to sweep the trophies this year; no Slumdog, no Benjamin Button, so the competition is kind of wide open.  We all know the Globes are a good indicator of The Oscars, so tonight we’ll be getting a pretty good idea of what’s to come.  Incidentally, if anything does sweep, I think it might be Nine.

A few predictions then.  In the Best Movie (Drama) category I’m thinking probably the wonderfully spelt Inglourious Basterds with the Best Musical/Comedy going to Nine.  Best Actress I expect to go to Helen Mirren, because she always wins, but I think that anyone in that category (except Sandra Bullock) is in with a shot.  Best Actor I’m thinking George Clooney and Best Animated absolutely has to be Up (that’s getting the Oscar too).  I can’t really guess about the Supporting Role awards since I haven’t seen any of the films(!) and Best Director is a tricky one, but I think they just might give it to James Cameron for being brave enough to make Avatar.  Michael Giacchino should be in with a shot for his score of Up,  but James Horner (Avatar) is stiff competition  (I haven’t even heard the score yet but the fact that he wrote it means I have no doubt it’s brilliant).

As for the telly awards, that’s kind of wandering off point a bit, but in my book House wins everything. Except musical, that’s Glee.

I’ll try to keep a bit more on top of these awards. Let me know your predictions!
