Globes Winners: Read It Here First!
The Golden Globes will reveal their 2010 award-winners January 17 with a star-studded event that from its presenter list alone, promises to head to the top of the event's six-decade history.
The 2010 Golden Globes predictions are in and when it comes to 2009 movies -- SheKnows Entertainment is going out on a limb to call the Golden Globe winners!
Best Motion Picture, Drama: Avatar; The Hurt Locker; Inglourious Basterds; Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire; Up in the Air
Who will win: Up in the Air
Why: This is Up in the Air's year. There is a slew of contenders and although they are all glorious, some of them Inglouriously so, but when it comes down to the Hollywood Foreign Press who put on this little shindig, they love a film that covers travel, emotional revelation and character growth beyond compare. Up in the Air will have a big night.
Actress, Drama: Emily Blunt, The Young Victoria; Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side; Helen Mirren, The Last Station; Carey Mulligan, An Education; Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
Actor, Drama: Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart; George Clooney, Up in the Air; Colin Firth, A Single Man; Morgan Freeman, Invictus; Tobey Maguire, Brothers
Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: (500) Days of Summer; The Hangover; It's Complicated; Julie & Julia; Nine
Actress, Musical or Comedy: Sandra Bullock, The Proposal; Marion Cotillard, Nine; Julia Roberts, Duplicity; Meryl Streep, It's Complicated; Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia
Who will win: Meryl Streep will win, the question is...for which film? Julie & Julia is the moniker the presenter will emit after reading Streep's name because when it comes to capturing real people, there are performances and there are caricatures. In Julie & Julia, Streep captures the essence of an American icon while still injecting her trademark brilliance.
Why: Have you seen the movie? If not, run, don't walk and rent it -- Julie & Julia is on DVD and Blu-ray.
Actor, Musical or Comedy: Matt Damon, The Informant!; Daniel Day-Lewis, Nine; Robert Downey Jr, Sherlock Holmes; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, (500) Days of Summer; Michael Stuhlbarg, A Serious Man
Actress, Supporting: Penelope Cruz, Nine; Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air; Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air; Mo'Nique, Precious; Julianne Moore, A Single Man
Who will win: Mo'Nique may be a favorite to win the Oscar, but here at The Golden Globes, they will use another opportunity to celebrate Up in the Air. The question in this category then becomes which Up in the Air actress. The winner by an inch: Farmiga for her exquisite performance across a legend in George Clooney. If there is an upset at this year's Golden Globes, look for dark horse Anna Kendrick to be rewarded for her successful year of Up in the Air and The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Why: The two actresses that serve as Clooney's challengers on many levels are equally as brilliant across a brilliant actor. What gets us and pulls the heart strings is the relationship Farminga's character has with Clooney, and therefore, that is why she wins by a matter of inches.
