Sunday, January 16th we will get the first hints on who might win the Oscars. Golden Globe is the first step there – and the winners of a Golden Globe is often a favorite for the Oscars, too.
IMDB has en excellent list HERE of all the nominees. And i will concentrate on giving my opinion on some of the nominees.
For Best picture we have Black Swan, The Fighter, The King´s Speech, Inception and The Social Network. I have only seen two of them; Inception and The Social Network. I liked them booth so either one can win in my opinion but i guess either The Social Network or The King´s Speech will win. In the Best Actor-categories we see Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Colin Firth (The King´s Speech) James Franco (128 hours), Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine) and Mark Wahlberg for The Fighter. I thought Jesse was good in The Social Newtork – maybe not “Winner”-good but solid. I am looking forward to see James performance in 128 hours and guess he will win. For Best Director we see the people behind the movies that are nominated for Best Picture (Check the link above if you want to see the names) but i am hoping for Christopher Nolan just because i like him!
For Best Animated Film i really hope for How to train your dragon – great, great movie! But i hink Toy Story 3 will win this. Denmark is nomineted for Best Foreign Languege Film with “Hævnen” (Literally translated “The Revenge” but the movie is called “In a Better World”) but i have not seen this yet. I will as soon as i can.
For Best Television Drama we have some interesting ones – Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife, Mad Man and The Walking Dead. For Best Television Musical or Comedy we have The Big Bang Theory, The Big C, Glee, Modern Family, Nurse Jackie and 30 Rock. Once again, check IMDB for a full list (Link in the beginning of the post) – extra fun is of course Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Go Sheldon! Im also hoping for Eric Stonestreet in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television-category.
