Well, those are MY predictions. What are yours? Am I completely off? Will Amy Adams take it from Meryl Streep? Does Joaquin Phoenix have a chance at a win? Will Jennifer Lawrence win? Do you think Jared Leto’s performance is better than Dustin Hoffman’s in Tootsie? Will Disney’s “Let It Go” beat out “Please Mr. Kennedy”? So much to guess and to look forward to. The Golden Globes are in a few hours. Don’t miss ’em…and come back and compare your and my predictions with the actual results!golden_globe_awards_ceremony

  1. I’m glad 12 Years A Slave won – very worthy and Steve McQueen is so deserving of the plaudits as he’s doing such consistently good quality work.
