71st Golden Globe Awards

Award season is upon us and its one of my favorite times of year.  I am a big fan of movies and television.  Sunday night is the first big award show of the year.  The Golden Globes are voted on by the member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  There tends to be odd nominations and winners with this award show because the HFPA seems to be a little more bias to foreign films, shows, actor, and actresses.  Here are my guesses on who the winner will be.
