Golden Globe Predictions

I'm not a big fan of the Golden Globes, but I do like make predictions. That's the only reason I'm acknowledging the Oscar's -Lite ceremony on Sunday that everybody else calls the Golden Globes. It's basically a popularity contest instead of a reward for good work.

I poo-poo the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They are a group of "journalists" whose sole purpose is to cozy up to celebrities. it's well known that they bribe celebrities and throw parties for them. These are the same celebrities who they are supposed to impartially judge and decide which movies are of worth. Anyone else see the conflict of interest here?

So, with that in mind, I make the following picks for Sunday night's show. I have also included a few categories that I think should be added to the ceremony. (We all love how long these dumb shows last...right?)

Nominated Movie Picked Because Of Big Name Stars, But Has No Business Being Nominated
The Tourist - Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie

Nominated Move Picked Because Of neat Special Effects, But Has No Business Being Nominated
Alice In Wonderland (2010)
