In just a couple of hours, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will announce the nominees for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. SAG yesterday didn’t particularly help in getting a clearer idea of who’s in contention, unlike last year when 24 of the 25 nominees replicated their nominations at the Globes. That means that most of these are guesses, and I probably won’t reach the dizzy heights of 6th in the leader board at Gold Derby, that I got last year predicting these awards.
