My prediction: a crapload of noms. for Brokeback Mountain. This is the kind of movie the Golden Globes loves. I also wouldn't be surprised if Walk the Line came in at a close second.

personally I am hoping that Viggo Mortensen and Maria Bello get some acting nominations for A History of Violence, as that is easily my favorite film of the year thus far.

I would like to see Reese Witherspoon and Zhang ZiYi get nods...Although Memoirs wasnt he greatest film in the world, I thought she was absolutely stunning as Sayuri, and did a good job with the role, plus well, Im pretty much infatuated with her.

I actuall think Kong might have a better chance at the Oscars than the Golden Globes. The Globes has no technical categories, which is where I am think Kong will sweep.

While a little off topic, whatever happened to the Terrence Malick pic "The New World"? I haven't seen anything about it for a while, and I heard they wanted it to be an awards contender.

The New World is set to come out at the end of the month.

I hope Crash and Cinderella Man don't get forgotten. And Memoirs of Geisha is rotten so I don't see any strong nominations for that one. I also predict Clooney getting an award or two at the Golden Globes because he won't get any at the Oscars.

I really hope they don't select Memoirs of a Geisha over Crash, Capote, Syriana, or A History of Violence. Geisha has gotten horrible buzz and reviews. I think Cinderella Man is a safe pick.

Two big surprises. No Syriana for Best Picture Drama and no 40 Year Old Virgin for Best Picture Comedy.


Wow, looking at that list of nominees, this really has been a terrible year in film.

Munich and Kong will be around for the Oscars. The Globes have never meant much of anything. At least the directors got nominated, so not a total snub.

I'm surprised Match Point got the Drama nomination. Johnny Deep nominated for Charlie... was a nice surprise. This guy is just well liked by almost everyone. He'll get the gold one of these days.

Russell Crowe, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Matt Dillon, Paul Giamatti

Match Point could make some noise for Oscar Nominations.

Yes, I like Howard. He could've gotten a nom for Crash, but there's alot of good supporting performances in that.

Is there no buzz for Eric Bana or Daniel Craig for Munich?

Gee...I've always thought of the Golden Globes as the awards show that "gets it right" when it comes to nominations...but boy, those are some pretty weak-ass nominations. What the hell movies were they watching this year?

Off topic, but the TV noms aren't much better.

I think it'll be there. There's been films before that have been released in the Summer or Spring and have been in contention (Saving Private Ryan, Fargo, Braveheart, etc.)

The Academy loves Ron Howard and Russell Crowe. Plus, they'll want to give Giamatti a Supporting nod to make up for snubbing him last year. Not to mention the fact that the cinematography is terrific.

Universal still has high hopes for this film and they will make sure voters remember it.

do you guys think that capote being released a little earlier than brokeback mountain this gives heath ledger an advantage? i think it might. though i love phillip seymour hoffman i think brokeback mountain is a much better film than capote.

Hoffman was the front runner and still is the front runner, IMO. It helps that he's playing a real character.
