Golden Globes: Who do you want to win?

default

With just two more sleeps before the Golden Globes kick awards season off in style - and with the dress predictions sorted - it's only natural our thoughts have turned to who the big winners will be. Here are our predictions for Sunday's ceremony.

Best Motion Picture - Drama

We'd like it to be...

Slumdog Millionaire

It would be nice for a heart-warming British film to win for once. And can you imagine Dev Patel's face if Slumdog took the Golden Globe? After all, the excitable 18-year-old has only ever appeared in Skins before Slumdog. Bless!

We think it'll be...

Revolutionary Road

With serious issues and serious acting, stylish drama Revolutionary Road reunites Kate Winslet and Leonardio DiCaprio, and has ‘award winner' written all over it.

Also nominated...

The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, The Reader

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama

We'd like it to be...

Kate Winslet - Revolutionary Road

Having been nominated seven times (not to mention receiving five Oscar nominations over the years), Kate Winslet has admitted that she's keen to take some trophies home this year - and she really deserves one for this moving performance.

We think it'll be...

Angelina Jolie - Changeling

Angelina achieved a minor miracle in Changeling, allowing cinemagoers to forget her media persona for two hours and really believe she was a mother who had lost her son.

Also nominated...

Meryl Streep - Doubt; Kristin Scott Thomas - I've Loved You So Long; Anne Hathaway - Rachel Getting Married

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama

We'd like it to be...

Frank Langella - Frost/Nixon

Langella's was breathtaking as President Nixon - we felt achingly sad for the disgraced president, regardless of his flaws. Truly unforgettable.

We think it'll be...

Sean Penn - Milk

The Academy Award Winner is compelling and convincing as gay rights campaigner Harvey Milk, in another fascinating true story from the 1970s.

Also nominated...

Leonardo DiCaprio - Revolutionary Road; Brad Pitt - The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button; Mickey Rourke - The Wrestler

Best Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy

We'd like it to be...

In Bruges

Anyone who's seen this slick, funny will agree that it's fantastic - and it's so great to see Colin Farrell doing something truly excellent with his talents.

We think it'll be...

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Heralded as a return to form for Woody Allen, there's loads of buzz around this one. And how cute would Penelope Cruz, real life boyfriend Javier Bardem and Scarlett Johansson look, collecting their award on stage together?

Also nominated...

Burn After Reading, Happy-Go-Lucky, Mamma Mia!

Elsewhere, we'd love to see rising British star Rebecca Hall win a gong for her part in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and if James Franco is successful in Pineapple Express, we'll be over the moon - if only so we can swoon over him as he makes his acceptance speech. Finally, we reckon Heath Ledger will win a posthumous Globe for his role in The Dark Knight, which could be an indication of things to come for the Oscars. But what do you think?
