Andrew's Golden Globe Predictions

Normally awards season leads to endless debate among film fans. Critics deciding who is honored at the year's end are invariably criticised themselves...often by those whose favorite films are represented with neither nominations nor awards. However, the nominees for this years Golden Globe ceremony are pretty wonderful if you ask me (despite the absence of The Fountain from any acting category. Hugh Jackman deserved a nomination in my opinion...or at least a screenplay nod for Aronofsky).
Here are the nominees...
