Now that the Oscar nominations are in, it's time to think about what will happen at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
The nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Thursday by Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms.
teven Spielberg's epic on the 16th president, "Lincoln," stood out in the film categories with seven Golden Globe nominations, followed closely by Ben Affleck's "Argo" and Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."
On the TV side, HBO's "Game Change" continues to shine this awards season, picking up a total of five nods. Showtime's thriller "Homeland" earned four, including two nods for its leads, Claire Danes and Damian Lewis.
The awards ceremony, to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air January 13 at 8 p.m. ET/5p.m. PT.
The five contenders for motion picture/best drama are "Argo," "Django Unchained," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln" and "Zero Dark Thirty."
"Lincoln" is the favorite. But the drama that should win is "Zero Dark Thirty," which had to be revised when real life intervened with the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound.
For Best motion picture/ comedy or musical the contenders are "Les Miserables," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Moonrise Kingdom," "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" and "Silver Linings Playbook."
For best director, Oscar nominees Steven Spielberg ("Lincoln") and Ang Lee ("Life of Pi") are up against three directors the Academy Awards snubbed Thursday -- Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Quentin Tarantino ("Django Unchained") and Ben Affleck ("Argo").
Although Spielberg likely will win some fans of Bigelow think she will win. "I find her to be an incredibly modern storyteller who takes on weighty subjects and makes profound films," her leading lady, Jessica Chastain, said at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards this week.
Jennifer Lawrence, Cooper's "Silver Linings" co-star, has some stiff competition in this category -- Meryl Streep ("Hope Springs"), Maggie Smith ("Quartet"), Judi Dench ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel") and Emily Blunt ("Salmon Fishing in the Yemen").
Despite facing off against such heavyweights, Lawrence should win for her portrayal of a promiscuous widow with a depressive disorder who ropes Cooper into a dance competition.
For the best actor, Hugh Jackman will most likely win for his portrayal of Jean Valjean, but the most truly insane performance of the year belongs to Cooper. DiCaprio called it "unbelievable." Josh Brolin called Cooper "amazing." We call him another should-be winner.
And that sums up who we think will win, but there are definitely some that believe there are others who "should" win.
