Well one thing is for sure. 'The Hurt Locker', 'Up in the Air', Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, George Clooney, Mo'Nique, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Waltz and Katherine Bigelow are all locks for Oscar.
But with so many critically loved films like 'Inglourious Basterds', 'Precious', 'The Messenger' and 'A Serious Man' you would hope for there to be a little diversity.
But these are critics. They are not the Academy. Sweeping the critics does not mean winning an Oscar or even being nominated. Don't believe me, as Sally Hawkins.
The Golden Globes are announcing tomorrow and what should we expect? I am fully expecting a 'Precious' snub. Perhaps not in the acting categories, but definitely in Best Picture, Director and Screenplay. The Golden Globes want STARS and big names (they always do. So you could be looking at nominees like Mariah Carey, Robert Downey Jr, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon, Emma Thompson and a slew of the 'Nine' women.
Wait and see tomorrow.
