Golden Globe Nomination Predictions

Before we begin, I'd just like to stress again that I am NOT a prognosticator. It seems a bit silly to me, guessing what other people are going to pick as the best of 2007. I just wouldn't want to stake my professional reputation on something that is completely out of my control. That said, since this is My First Blog and all, I've decided to take the opportunity to try my hand at predicting the Golden Globe nominees, most of whom I will have the incredible chance to talk to tomorrow, as I take nomination reactions for V. The HFPA is a rascally group. They're unpredictable, yet they never reinvent the wheel. I suspect they'll play it pretty safe this year, but I've decided to spice things up a bit and predict some underdogs, especially in the Best Actress, Comedy/Musical category, where I have the sinking feeling that Juliette Binoche will be overlooked despite being impossible to resist in the surprisingly charming Dan in Real Life. Without further adieu, my latenight idiocy, posted for all the world to see and make fun of. Then again, don't be surprised if I told you so. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get up soon...
