NEWS: Your Home For Golden Globes Talk...

So, since I literally have nothing better to do on a Sunday night (besides Brinner, which will be emmaculate), I have decided to throw up all of the information that one needs to be prepped for the Golden Globes tonight.

Now, what should one expect tonight? Here is a few footnotes for your enjoyment...

1) This is Slumdog's Year - Over the past couple of years, there has always been that one little "indie film that could". First, we had Sideways, then there was Crash, and most notably, there was Little Miss Sunshine and Juno, both Fox Searchlight releases. However, while Crash DID win the Oscar for Best Picture, none of these films listed have been half as beloved by everyone (minus myself), as Slumdog Millionaire has been. I would be shocked if Danny Boyle didn't take Best Director, and I would be speechless, if not ecstatic, if Slumdog did not take Best Picture. It will.

2) It's the final round in the Best Actor category - This year may be one of the deepest at the respective Best Actor and Actress categories, however, there is no single battle being raged any more heated then between Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn. Verbal shots (allegedly), and critic awards going back and forth, look for the winner of the award tonight to maybe have the final round k.o. leading into this year's Academy Awards.

3) Mishap aside, Anne Hathaway WILL win Best Actress - This should be the award that finally lets her know that a tiara or a bridal gown shouldn't be her go to attire

4) Penelope Cruz will get back on the winning horse - She lost at the Critic's Choice Awards, but aside from that meaningless award, she has nearly swept every critic award, and this should be no different

5) Best Actor (Comedy/Musical) may be the most open category of the year - Two separate nods for the leads in In Bruges have the most online buzz, but don't be surprised if Dustin Hoffman pulls of an upset of sorts. Oh, James Franco and the critical darling that is Javier Bardem are no slouches either.

6) Watch for a possible win by Robert Downey in the Best Supporting Actor category - This may be the most out there pick, but a few people online have been buzzing that this could be the momentum that RDJ needs to get his much talked about Oscar nod. Do I see this happening, no, but it's not out of the question...

7) How will the show work? - Last year there was no show, so this is the Golden Globes return to not only television, but three hour broadcast.

That's all for right now, come back as the night progresses for updated winners and my thoughts on the respective film categories...
