Golden Globes!!!

I'll post 'em, with me personal comments. Predictions for the win in red.

Best Picture, Drama
Babel
Bobby
The Departed
Little Children
The Queen

Well, The Departed is an A- grade movie, Little Children a B-grade one and The Queen a B+ one. Not bad. I'm eagerly, eagerly awaiting Babel, but the trailer to Bobby really annoyed me by playing Thomas Newman in it, plus it has Lindsay Hohan.

Best Actor in a Leading Role, Drama
Leonardo DiCaprio, Blood Diamond Haven't seen, but come on, you know how much I love this man.
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Departed HAVE seen this. Best performance by an actor, 2006.
Peter O'Toole, Venus N/S
Will Smith, The Pursuit of Happyness I saw the trailer to this. Um.
Forest Whitaker, The Last King of Scotland Well, James McAvoy's in this movie, so I'll certainly be checking it out.

Best Director
Clint Eastwood, Flags of our Fathers As predicted.
Clint Eastwood, Letters From Iwa Jima Um.
Stephen Frears, The Queen Yay! Get in there, Brits!!
Alejandro González Iñárritu, Babel As predicted.
Martin Scorcese, The Departed Well, duh!

Best Actor in a Leading Role, Musical or Comedy
Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat He was funny... I guess.
Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest Er... no.
Aaron Eckhart, Thank You For Smoking This film really irritates me now. It's just not that good.
Will Ferrell, Stranger than Fiction Good.
Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kinky Boots V. g.

Best Picture, Comedy or Musical
Borat Yes, guys, it was funny. It was also racist, sexist and disturbing. "Meh."
The Devil Wears Prada yep. deserving.
Dreamgirls Er. Haven't seen.
Little Miss Sunshine No thanks.
Thank You For Smoking No thanks. Stranger than Fiction is a million times better. As is The Holiday. And Happy Feet. And Cars. And Severance. Get the picture?

Best Actress in a Leading Role, Drama
Penelope Cruz, Volver Yes! I adore me some Pen.
Judi Dench, Notes on a Scandal N/S
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sherrybaby Haven't seen, but Maggie's cool.
Helen Mirren, The Queen Yes, yes. 3rd best lead actress 2006.And a Brit. What's not to love?
Kate WInslet, Little Children Good, good.

Best Actress in a Leading Role, Comedy or Musical
Annette Bening, Running with Scissors N/S
Toni Collette, Little Miss Sunshine Nah to the film, but Collette was excellent
Beyonce Knowles, Dreamgirls I love some of her songs, hate her acting skills.
Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada Very good performance.
Renee Zellweger, Miss Potter The poster to this film scares me a little.

Best Supporting Actor
Jack Nicholson, The Departed Meh.
Mark Wahlberg, The Departed Better than Nicholson, but still meh.
Eddie Murphy, Dreamgirls N/S, but meh
Brad Pitt, Babel Where's Gael?
Ben Affleck, Hollywoodland Good performance, but it's blatantly LEAD!!

Best Supporting Actress
Emily Blunt, The Devil Wears Prada *orgasms* I adored this performance! seriously, it was comedic paradise. Emily rocks. I've got her as the win. Wishful thinking? Nay! Critical Thinking!
Cate Blanchett, Notes on a Scandal N/S
Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls Meh
Adriana Barraza, Babel N/S, heard good things
Rinko Kikuchi, Babel Ditto

Best Screenplay
Babel N/S
Little Children I'd disagree with that.
Notes on a Scandal N/S
The Departed Yep.
The Queen Yep.

Score
The Painted Veil
The Fountain
Babel
Nomad
The Da Vinci Code

I'm yet to see Babel but I adored Santaolalla's work in Brokeback Mountain. I'm actually delighted about Hans Zimmer's nomination, it really paves his way for the chance for an Oscar nomination. His score for The Da Vinci Code, was the best thing about the movie, and far, far, better than his horrific score to Pirates of the Caribbean II. Also delighted that the wonderful Alexandre Desplat managed to get in there, but not for his score to The Queen, which I liked, but thought was a little overdone.

A little disappointmented about Iglesias missing out for Volver, my choice for best score of the year. Also, no nod for Giacchino's work on Mission Impossible III, although I knew that was never gonna happen. (sorry I wrote a lot on this category. I'm a musician so I kinda care loads about score.)

ORIGINAL SONG
Pursuit of Happyness
Dreamgirls
Bobby
Happy Feet

Laberinto del Fauno, El
Leben der Anderen, Das

I'm happy about Leo getting nodded twice as well. Both deserving. He's no longer "cute guy in Titanic", but a serious actor!

Gael's in "Babel" for all of 10 minutes.

Don't get your hopes up for the film. I think I was too excited. Bit of a letdown.

Barazza and Rinko are great, though.
