Welcome to Round 2 of Movie Fanatic' Golden Globes predictions. Today we have predictions in three more of the major movie categories. Then, it's your turn! You tell us who you think will take home the gold in the major categories.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
- Amy Adams - The Fighter
- Helena Bonham Carter - The King's Speech
- Mila Kunis - Black Swan
- Melissa Leo - The Fighter
- Jackie Weaver - Animal Kingdom
Our Prediction: Melissa Leo - The Fighter
This one is totally based on the buzz she's been getting around her role as Mark Wahlberg's overbearing mother in the drama. Amy Adams also did an amazing job in the film, and it's her third time being nominated without a win, but we think the big kudos are going to go to Leo this year.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
- Christian Bale - The Fighter
- Michael Douglas - Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
- Andrew Garfield - The Social Network
- Jeremy Renner - The Town
- Geoffrey Rush - The King's Speech
Our Prediction: Christian Bale - The Fighter
Christian Bale did so much to prepare for this role, losing tons of weight and researching the character to understand how his mind works; but it was really his performance that makes him the one to beat in this category. His dedication to the mannerisms and mindset of drug addicted Dickie really shows in his performance. Although the other actors in this category did a good job, no one else really comes close to Bale's outstanding performance this year.
BEST DIRECTOR - MOTION PICTURE
- Darren Aronofsky - Black Swan
- David Fincher - The Social Network
- Tom Hooper - The King's Speech
- Christopher Nolan - Inception
- David O. Russell - The Fighter
Our Prediction: David Fincher - The Social Network
There are a few categories this year that seem to be a given with the buzz surrounding the films. We might be surprised, but I think this is one of those categories. David Fincher has been on top during this year's award season and that isn't going to slow down with the Golden Globes. Although Aronofsky's Black Swan is a close second and is also getting a lot of buzz, Fincher is going to take home the gold this year.
