Golden Globe awards tonight!

Here's who I would like to see win (Link to full nomination list) :

BEST MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
THE DEPARTED

Well, it's the only one I saw but I really did enjoy it. And I normally don't like mob/shoot em up kind of movies.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL - SHERRYBABY

I didn't see any of the performances by the nominees, I just think Maggie is cool. Plus I like her brother. :)

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
LEONARDO DICAPRIO — BLOOD DIAMOND
LEONARDO DICAPRIO — THE DEPARTED
In my opinion, Leo is one of the most underrated actors today, probably b/c of his pretty face. I saw both performances, so I think Blood Diamond should win it just for the accent alone - heehee.


BEST MOTION PICTURE - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
DREAMGIRLS
This is actually a category where I saw all the nominees. Dreamgirls has to win - it was a masterpiece!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
MERYL STREEP — THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
Sorry Beyonce, I loved you too but Meryl Streep ruled in the Prada movie.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
JOHNNY DEPP — PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST
I totally didn't follow the plot, but it was OK b/c of Johnny's entertaining performance!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
JENNIFER HUDSON — DREAMGIRLS
I'll be crushed (and shocked!) if she doesn't win for her amazing performance.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
EDDIE MURPHY — DREAMGIRLS
He was the surprise treat in this movie. Everyone knew J-Hud would rock it, but I thought Eddie did an awesome job, especially with his performance numbers.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA
GREY'S ANATOMY

Hello - Code Black, anyone? That and the following episodes were some of the best TV EVER.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA
ELLEN POMPEO — GREY'S ANATOMY

OK, she can be annoying at times, but the show wouldn't be the same without her. And she was awesome in that aforementioned Code Black episode.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA
PATRICK DEMPSEY — GREY'S ANATOMY

Not that I think his acting is spectacular or anything, but he is the only one of the nominees I watch.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
THE OFFICE
Tough one between this and Ugly Betty but I'm going with the Office. The show just kills me! Although I think Ugly Betty is really funny in an over-the-top way, I think Office is funny in its subtleties (sp?) which would seem a lot harder to master. And Desperate Housewives? I don't think so.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES -COMEDY OR MUSICAL
AMERICA FERRERA — UGLY BETTY
Golden Globes loves the new "It" girl (previous winners were Keri Russell and Jennifer Garner when Felicity/Alias debuted) so I hope this is a lock. Plus she's adorable on the show that calls her Ugly!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
STEVE CARELL — THE OFFICE
Another tough one! I would be happy with either Steve Carrell, Zach Braff, or Alec Baldwin with my preference being Steve since his last acceptance speech was so funny. I will be really pissed off if Tony Shalhoub wins!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
KATHERINE HEIGL — GREY'S ANATOMY
OK, the whole Denny storyline annoyed me... but still, this pretty lady deserves to win. Plus I bet she'll look really glamorous for the event so it would be great to see her on stage to accept!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
JEREMY PIVEN — ENTOURAGE
I don't have HBO, I just think he's funny. And I hope the rumors aren't true about him and John Cusack.

You have such girly picks. Though Maggie Gyllenhaal is hawt, at least in Secretary. Jeremy Piven is an overrated chode.
