OSCAR WATCH: Golden Globe Awards

When I was predicting the Critics Choice awards on Wednesday, I said that we would have a consensus by now. Yes, The Artist is still the film to beat but it's seems to be strangely lacking those important "coattail" wins in the other categories (specifically Director and Screenplay). Based on my predictions (I correctly guessed 10 out of 14), there seemed to be some upsets. In retrospect, I should have remembered that the HFPA really do worship the stars. So despite losses on Thursday, the wins by Meryl Streep (Best Actress), Martin Scorcese (Best Director), Madonna(Original Song) and Steven Spielberg(Animated Feature) actually weren't that shocking. From the major categories - Christopher Plummer(Supporting Actor), George Clooney (Actor), Octavia Spencer (Supporting Actress) and Woody Allen (Best Original Screenplay) seem well on their way to Oscar glory. Best Director and Best Actress looks like a photo finish to me. Here is the full list of winners:
