Awards: Final Golden Globe Predictions
One of the most widely acknowledged awards shows will announce its nominees 5:15am PT/8:15am ET. After what we have seen with the Screen Actors Guild nominees you should be expecting attention from “The Butler,” “Enough Said,” and “August: Osage County.” Among the usual front-runners.
After tomorrow the Golden Globes Page will only predict winners of the categories and we’ll see how we did.
So here are the Final Golden Globe Predictions: (more…)
A considerable amount of races occur in Ron Howard’s “Rush,” a biographical sports film about the famous rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Summary: A re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
Status: After being screened to some high praise, particular of Daniel Bruhl’s performance, it’s hard to see Ron Howard’s “Rush” not making it. Though critics are giving it out-of-the-park reviews, they are still all-around positive. It may be all this film needs if it has a successful box-office. Universal doesn’t have many other films in the mix this year.

Summary: A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly-purchased operating system that’s designed to meet his every need.
Status: It wasn’t until the trailer was announced that anyone thought this film was going to even be done this year. Writer/Director Spike Jonze (who is notorious for spending long hours in an edit room) has made a film with a bizarre premise, the trailer looks like the film has a lot to say and it will now close the New York Film Festival with a push from executives who are confident in the quality of the film and its award chances.
