Boy was I off. The Golden Globes last night were not an enjoyable watching experience, as I only correctly predicted 4 of the 14 movie awards. Some were slight miscalculations, with my alternate picks ending up willing, while others seemed complete out of left field.
The biggest surprise of the night for me was that the award for Best Picture – Drama went to The Descendants, with George Clooney also picking up the award for Best Actor – Drama. I’m not sure if this will repeat come Oscar time, but both are now definite frontrunners.
Not so surprising was The Artist‘s win for Best Picture – Comedy/Musical. It also won for Best Actor – Comedy/Musical and Best Score. I think that The Artist is going to be the true film to beat during the Oscars.
The Oscar nominations are announced in just over a weeks time and it will definitely be an interesting race.
