It’s My Big Bold Golden Globe Nomination Predictions 2012!

samantha-barks-les-misThe past week or so has been a whirlwind of activity in this year’s awards derby and tomorrow will continue that momentum with the announcement of this year’s Golden Globe nominees… Expect to see a lot of the names you’ve heard so far this season like Lincoln, Les Miserables, and Argo. However, you may see some big stars in the race as the Globes love them a star… Does that mean something as crazy as Tom Cruise (Rock of Ages) and Julia Roberts (Mirror Mirror) getting nominated for Lead Acting honors in the Musical or Comedy category? It might. I think more discerning minds will prevail, but we will see…. So, just who do I think will hear their name tomorrow morning? Check out my predictions in all the major categories (Film and Television) below and check back here tomorrow for the actual nominees!
