Who'll win big at the 2011 Golden Globes?

The 2011 Golden Globe Awards will recognize this year's most compelling film and television performances by the world's brightest stars. Check out who's nominated and who's favored to win!

Golden Globes

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be held on January 16, and last year's hilarious host Ricky Gervais is returning with his biting humor to guide the night into history.

Widely hailed as a predictor of the Oscars, this precursor to the Academy Awards gives a glimpse of what we can expect to see on that glittering stage just a few weeks later.

Our predictions for the big winners? Black Swan for Best Motion Picture (and pretty much everything else for which it is nominated), Johnny Depp for Alice in Wonderland, Michael Douglas for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (cancer means automatic award, just ask Michael C. Hall) and Mad Men continuing their Best Drama winning streak.
