My Predict. Edict

It's been hard figuring a coherent, non-repetitive review for that movie, so in the mean time, here are my predictions for the Golden Globe Awards press conference tomorrow night. I'm also not putting in anything about Atonement in the "Should Win" sections, where it may actually apply. Maybe once I'll finish it I'll revise them. And some of said choices are rlly pathetic.

I take it by your 'should win" section that you didn't love "atonement". :(

Ha, I just did this myself... although I did tv too, so eat dust (or something...)!

We seem to be in alignment with most of them, which either shows that we are mentally connected or these things are ridiculously predictable.

P.S. she definitely IS a liar

You know, as soon as Atonement finished, the first thing I said was 'That will win Best Score'.

I think There Will be Blood could be a dark horse... But since it hasn't come out here yet, No Country deserves it!

I said that until I finish the Atonement review, I wouldn't put it in the "Should Win" sections where it actually [wink]belongs[/wink].

And RJ: No, no I didn't. Those (and Mortensen, sadly) are the "pathetic" ones. Especially Roberts.

And no she isn't.

So Julia Roberts was that good? Or not?

She was good. Just good. She's only there because I can't technically write "Saoirse Ronan, Atonement" there yet.
