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.

Golden Predictions 2011! (Film Only)

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!!!


  1. I don't watch the Golden Globes or Oscars or any of that....which sort of displays my low opinion of the whole Hollywood thing. That said, I believe that 'The Kings Speech' is the best of the lot by far.

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


  3. I don't watch the Golden Globes, but my hubby does. I do pop in from time to time, and he gives me snippets of information, but I don't watch it myself, because I get bored watching a bunch of names getting called out for several hours. I hope you enjoyed watching it though.

  4. I'm so far behind on last years movies!
    I need to get busy...
