2011 Golden Globe Predictions

Is it just me, or this year’s Golden Globes WAY harder to predict than last year’s? I did pretty well last year with my guessing, but I honestly have no idea who is going to fill up half the slots this time around. That unpredictability makes for a more exciting race, but it also deflates my ego. Sad times. But here we go.
