On Sunday, eager viewers will no longer have to wait for results of the nominations of the 61st Annual Golden Globe Awards which premiere at 7 p.m. on NBC where the best movies and TV shows will get their credit. Be prepared to see some outrageous apparel on the sexiest stars in Hollywood and to hear crazy acceptance speeches. Here is my forecast on who will collect the renowned gold globe that is second in honor only to the Academy Awards, or more affectionately known as the man that every woman in Hollywood wants, the Oscar.
Based on its various nominations, “Cold Mountain” should walk away with a couple of awards, including Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama by Nicole Kidman.
Winner of the Best Motion Picture-Drama is a tossup between “Cold Mountain,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” and “Mystic River.”
Tom Cruise is predicted to win Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama for his work in “The Last Samurai.”
The much critically acclaimed “Big Fish” has a fair chance of winning Best Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy, but considering that “Finding Nemo” is the only animated movie in the category, making it unique, it could very well steal the title.
Diane Lane should receive a statue for her acting in “Under the Tuscan Sun,” but Diane Keaton puts up a good fight for it with her work in “Something’s Gotta Give.”
The Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical is perhaps one of the most difficult titles to predict, but since I am just a biased commentator, I hope Jack Black wins this one for his uproarious performance in “School of Rock.”
The Best Dramatic Television Series statue will go to either “24” or “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
The finale of “Sex And The City” will help it get a couple of awards, including Best Actress in a Comedy- Sarah Jessica Parker, and Best Television Series- Musical or Comedy.
You can’t miss this gala event and the catty criticism from Joan and Melissa Rivers on the red carpet. If you’re anywhere near a TV, you’ll undoubtedly hear about what the stars were wearing and who won. Compare them to your own predictions or mine, but always be prepared for surprises.
