My predictions: Golden Globe Awards 2011 (updated)

Originally posted on The Gold Knight Blog

It's time for bacchanalian party of the year: the Golden Globe Awards. Ricky Gervais is the ringleader for the second year of an evening where celebrities eat and, notably, drink — an awards show without the required gravitas. Last year Gervais was the first host in 15 years for the show by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Here are my predictions (marked in blue and winners highlighted **) for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Enjoy and feel free to leave comments.

Josh Duhamel, Katie Holmes and Blair Underwood announced the noms in December. "The King's Speech" received seven nominations, "The Fighter" and "The Social Network" six.
