The Golden Globe Picks for 2010
January 15, 2011

Predicting the future is impossible and folly for anyone with an ego, whether it is the direction of stocks and the economy or the winners of awards. So, let’s give it a try because it’s too much damn fun! The Golden Globes are the most eclectic of awards because the judges are so strange. Why? They are foreign and they are reporters…who can figure these people out? From their website, here is the description of who the judges are and how they choose their winners:
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is a non-profit organization, the members of which are international journalists based in Southern California. The HFPA has about 90 members who disseminate information about movies and television to the world through their various publications throughout the world. HFPA members attend more than 300 interviews and countless movie and television screenings throughout each year.”

You can see they don’t write about entertainment but “disseminate information”. It’s good to see they do attend screenings though, as that’s probably a good thing. You can tell they’re a bit quirky by their email address instructions:
Email: info at hfpa.org - Note: when sending an email, the spaces and "at" must be replaced by "@"

pg. 2

Anyone who won’t put the “@” in their email address and hyperlink it on their own web site is a bit odd, don’t you think? So, given this in-depth analysis of the organization behind the Golden Globes and their tendency to pick repeat winners, MarketBOB (that’s me) foolishly handicaps the nominees and predicts the future winners. Of course, this also reflects my own personal tastes and impeccable judgment as a movie reviewer and supporter of the Python school of rewarding “something completely different”. Hell, someone has to support artists trying to break out of the everyday conservative rut of doing the same damn thing for a few bucks.

Inception Warner Bros. Pictures UK LTD.; Warner Bros. Pictures

The King's Speech See-Saw Films and Bedlam Productions; The Weinstein Company

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical Johnny Johnny Paul Jake Kevin Depp – Alice Depp – The Giamatti – Gyllenhaal – Spacey – in Tourist Barney's Love And Casino Wonderland Version Other Drugs Jack And the winner is: Johnny Depp, hey he’s nominated twice…two chances to win. Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture Amy Helena Mila Melissa Leo – Jacki Adams – The Bonham Kunis – The Fighter Weaver – Fighter Carter – The Black Animal King's Swan Kingdom Speech And the winner is: the fight between the Fighter actresses, obviously the reporters like the film and both of them, but go with the younger Amy Adams who’s been due for a win for a while. Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture Christian Michael Andrew Jeremy Geoffrey Bale – The Douglas – Garfield – Renner – The Rush – The Fighter Wall Street: The Social Town King's Money Never Network Speech Sleeps And the winner is: Christian Bale is great in almost anything, big or small budget but we need to reward actors for more than just box office appeal although Andrew Garfield make his character likeable in a sea of nerdy idealists.

Toy Story 3 will take it.

And the winner is: Why are there six nominees in this category? The repeat choice is 30 Rock, my 12-year-old with no vote would go with The Big Bang Theory. How many foreign reporters are 12-year-olds? Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series - Comedy Or Musical
Toni Collette – United States Of Tara (SHOWTIM E) Edie Falco – Nurse Jackie (SHOWTIM E) Tina Fey – 30 Rock (NBC ) Laura Linney – The Big C (Showtime ) Lea Michele – Glee (FOX )

And the winner is: Tiny Fey can do no wrong, and has won before. Besides, she might say something amusing about Sarah Palin in her acceptance speech.
