The 65th Annual Golden Globes Predictions!

When Babel won the best picture last year, it was a sign of change. A change of attitude towards foreign talent. Alejandro Inarritu of Mexican descent scored highly in Hollywood's toughest league. One wonders what will this year bring? For the first time in a really long time, we have not five but seven contenders for the ultimate crown. With a whole host of good-looking films with immense potential, and new filmmaking personalities stamping their ground, it's a bumper crop really.
