349/365: The Golden Globe Nominations

Earlier today, the nominations for the 69th Golden Globe Awards were announced. The awards will take place January 15, 2012 – so come back then to see the results!

As I usually do on the blog (depending if I remember early enough in advance), I list the nominees with my predictions on who I WANT to win and who I THINK will win.

First off though, after last year’s “controversial” hosting job, Ricky Gervais has been asked to host for the 3rd time! (This is going to be awesome… unless they try and censor him or tone him down this time around.)

Anyway, on with my picks!

Underline = who I WANT to win | Italics = who I THINK will win

I didn’t pick who I wanted to win for some – as I hadn’t seen them or know anything about any of the nominees.

  1. I get so excited for awards season! It’s a little crazy. Love that Ricky Gervais is hosting again.

    I want Rooney Mara to win, but I doubt she will. I also want Joseph Gordon Levitt to win. He was FANTASTIC in 50/50. Michelle Williams was amazing as Marilyn and I think she’ll win.

    I have a feeling Ryan Gosling will win something with the double nomination and it’s looking like it’ll be for Crazy Stupid Love, but we’ll see.

    I hear Michael Fassbender has an intense performance in Shame, so I am happy we got nominated as he seemed to be left out up until now.

    Over all I am pretty ok with these. Not all of them are who they ususally nominate, and I am thrilled that Rooney Mara got one. It gives me high hopes for the movie.
