goldenglobes2012.pngBest Drama:

The Descendants
Commentary: I only hope it can top The Artist for the Best Picture Oscar.

Best Actor (Drama):

George Clooney, The Descendants

Best Comedy or Musical:

The Artist
Commentary: Duh!

Best Actress (Drama):

Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Commentary: A minor upset. I still think Viola Davis is the Oscar favorite.

Best Actor (Comedy or Musical):

Jean Dujardin, The Artist
Commentary: Dujardin could pull an upset at the Oscars if Clooney and Pitt split the vote.

Best Director:

Martin Scorsese, Hugo
Commentary: Wow! What a great surprise.

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture:

Octavia Spencer, The Help
Commentary: This is another safe bet for the Oscar. Put it in writing now.

Best Foreign Film:

A Separation
Commentary: This one has the Oscar in the bag. It's one of the year's safest bets.

Best Screenplay:

Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris
Commentary: It was either this or Moneyball. A great pick. Maybe they should host an awards show in New York so Woody will actually show upor maybe that doesn't matter.

Best Animated Feature Film:

The Adventures of Tintin
Commentary: A big hit abroad, so no real surprise that it topped Rango.

Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical:

Michelle Williams, My Week with Marilyn
Commentary: Kristen Wiig deserved this!!!

Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture:

Christopher Plummer, Beginners
Commentary: Completely deserved. Plummer is easily the favorite for the OscarAlbert Brooks is now more of a dark horse. A classy and funny acceptance speech.

Best Original Score:

Ludovic Bource, The Artist

Best Original Song:

"Masterpiece" by Madonna

Commentary: The Globes always pick something interesting and surprising in this category. The Oscars will find a way to make a boring pick.
