Golden Predictions 2011
For almost two decades I have been an avid watcher of the Golden Globes, the precursor to Hollywoods holiest of awards shows, the Oscars. Despite the possible implications behind winning an award at the GG's, they always give off a fun, relaxed atmosphere and, of course, the show always promises to showcase the best and worst of red carpet fashion.
On the eve of the 2011 Golden Globes, I wanted to take the opportunity to channel my inner psychic and put out some predictions prior to the awards being presented. These predictions are based solely on information I have stumbled upon in the media over the past months, coupled with my own personal opinions.
Disclaimer(s) - I have not seen the movie 'The Kings Speech', which from what I understand is a strong contender in all categories for which it is nominated.

I apologize for the brevity of this post, just wanted to make sure it was properly posted before the actual awards so I'm not tempted to 'cheat' in any way.
I decided I 'win' if I hit 75% or better.
Happy fashion bashing everyone!!!
