Rodney’s Picks for the 2011 Golden Globes

While I don’t put a lot of stock in the Golden Globes, they are supposed to be a measuring stick to what we might see at the Oscars. Still I have a lot of time giving credibility to an association that can’t have separate categories for Comedies and Musicals. Why are those together again?

Anyways, tonight will be the 68th Annual Hollywood Foreign Press awards ceremony to recognize some of the great films of 2010.

The Official Globes website has all the nominations, but I am just referencing the Movie related Noms. (and Bolding my picks)

“THERE’S A PLACE FOR US” — THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER
“YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LAST OF ME” — BURLESQUE

There are a couple double-dippers this year, as they have Depp double nominated for two different films, and Burlesque hitting up two songs. And I had a hard time deciding if I liked How to Train your Dragon more than Toy Story 3 because I loved them both for different reasons, but I think Toy Story will win out.

Christian Bale was hardly a “supporting” actor in The Fighter, so if they consider him secondary to the film he did a hell of a job.

So what are your picks?
