2011 Golden Globe Predictions

Here are my 2011 Golden Globe Predictions.  These awards don’t necessarily mean a whole lot in comparison to the Guilds and other precursor awards.  The Golden Globes seem a bit silly at times as you can plainly see by the multiple nominations for Johnny Depp and Burlesque.  Nevertheless, it’s very interesting to see just where these films stand at this point in the race.  The King’s Speech could up its stock with a win and make it a tight Oscar Best Picture race between The King’s Speech, Inception and front-runner, The Social Network.  There are some locks as well like Christian Bale, Aaron Sorkin & Natalie Portman.  A win for these three all but officially locks an Oscar win in late February.
