Justin Timberlake, John Krasinski and Diane Kruger have all likely gone on with their lives since announcing the 2010 Golden Globe nominees but we here at Cineplex are still mulling over the choices that were made.
We take a look at the Big 6 categories and offer our predictions, and wish lists, about who will walk home a winner when the 67th annual Golden Globes air January 17, 2010.
Now that the award season has replaced the holiday season in Hollywood, buzz is building about best pictures, winning performances, designer gowns and, oh yes, "What's for dinner?"
For your consideration: herb-crusted mozzarella and grilled eggplant salad, braised beef short ribs with artichoke sweet pepper ragout and sauteed sea bass with truffle endive fritto.
Whether or not you watch the Golden Globes because they serve as a fairly decent barometer for who will win Oscar gold or because the presence of alcohol exponentially increases the chance of a tawdry acceptance speech, this year one of the most pressing reasons to check out Hollywood's biggest party can be summed up in two words: Ricky Gervais.
The British comedic genius - yeah, I went there - killed it when he only had five minutes to work with as a presenter at last year's ceremony and had audiences doubled over in laughter when he took his Emmy back from Steve Carell in 2008. Sample dialogue: "I sat through Evan Almighty - give me my Emmy." Classic.
Here then are 10 likely phrases, remarks, gestures, sounds and jokes the talented comedian will probably utter during his time as the host of the 67th annual Golden Globes. Keep in mind that while this list is nowhere near scientific, it is based on many, many hours spent studying the craft and wizardry that is the Gervais. We'll be keeping score at home and so should you!
With movie awards season now in full swing, the Iraq war film The Hurt Locker is an early frontrunner, according to an award tracking survey by The Associated Press. But honours have been spread around to a number of movies as well. Jason Reitman's uber-relevant Up in the Air, in particular, continues to win across multiple categories. And then there's James Cameron's Avatar, another major heavyweight, particularly at the box office.
A lot could still change before the Academy Awards on March 7. In between, the Broadcast Film Critics Association, Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Screen Actors Guild, Producers Guild, Directors Guild and the Film Independent organization all dole out awards.
We've already sorted through the main six categories and made our predictions and blue-sky wishes about who should take home a shiny Golden Globe January 17. But we're not done yet.
