CoupleDumb’s predictions for the 67th annual Golden Globe

What (or who) do we have to do to win one?


          Picture, Drama: “Avatar,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Inglorious Basterds,” “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,” “Up in the Air.” – Didn’t see any of them. Why? Because we have three kids. That hasn’t changed since last year.

          Picture, Musical or Comedy: “(500) Days of Summer,” “The Hangover,” “It’s Complicated,” “Julie & Julia,” “Nine.” – At least we’ve seen one of these but really wanted to see all the other ones. We support ‘It’s Complicated’ for the win because the combination of Steve Martin and Meryl Streep is like peanut butter and bananas.

          Actor, Drama: Jeff Bridges, “Crazy Heart”; George Clooney, “Up in the Air”; Colin Firth, “A Single Man”; Morgan Freeman, “Invictus”; Tobey Maguire, “Brothers.” – Ooh! Yeah! We don’t really care about this one. If pushed we would say George Clooney because he is handsome. By ‘we’ I mean Lee.

          Actress, Drama: Emily Blunt, “The Young Victoria”; Sandra Bullock, “The Blind Side”; Helen Mirren, “The Last Station”; Carey Mulligan, “An Education”; Gabourey Sidibe, “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.”- Sandra Bullock will win because she is wonderful and probably would be fun at a dinner party. The others are, with the exception of Helen Mirren, boring. Helen, as I understand it, is a whore and whores are always fun.

          Director: Kathryn Bigelow, “The Hurt Locker”; James Cameron, “Avatar”; Clint Eastwood, “Invictus”; Jason Reitman, “Up in the Air”; Quentin Tarantino, “Inglorious Basterds.” – I wouldn’t give it to Cameron or Tarantino because they are arrogant and their speeches blow. Eastwood would scare me. So either Bigelow or Reitman.

          Actor, Musical or Comedy: Matt Damon, “The Informant!”; Daniel Day-Lewis, “Nine”; Robert Downey Jr., “Sherlock Holmes”; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, “(500) Days of Summer”; Michael Stuhlbarg, “A Serious Man.” – Robert Downey Jr. is writing the rules for portraying arrogant addicts. Love him!

          Actress, Musical or Comedy: Sandra Bullock, “The Proposal”; Marion Cotillard, “Nine”; Julia Roberts, “Duplicity”; Meryl Streep, “It’s Complicated”; Meryl Streep, “Julie & Julia.” – So difficult. NOT! Meryl Streep for whatever.

          Supporting Actor: Matt Damon, “Invictus”; Woody Harrelson, “The Messenger”; Christopher Plummer, “The Last Station”; Stanley Tucci, “The Lovely Bones”; Christoph Waltz, “Inglorious Basterds.” – Another DON’T CARE category. If pushed, I say Tucci because he is a great supporting actor.

          Supporting Actress: Penelope Cruz, “Nine”; Vera Farmiga, “Up in the Air”; Anna Kendrick, “Up in the Air”; Mo’Nique, “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire”; Julianne Moore, “A Single Man.” – I will have to say Cruz since she is Spanish and we could talk crap together about the other nominees. I have a really rich fantasy life.

          Foreign Language: “Baaria,” “Broken Embraces,” “The Maid (La Nana),” “A Prophet,” “The White Ribbon.” – We love Pedro Almidovar! Broken Embraces!

          Animated Film: “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” “Coraline,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Up.” – We loved Up! Sure we cried through the first 15 minutes but we loved it.


          Series, Drama: “Big Love,” HBO; “Dexter,” Showtime; “House,” Fox; “Mad Men,” AMC; “True Blood, HBO. – True Blood because Paul and I like to pretend he’s Bill and I’m Sookie and … it’s very well written.

          Actor, Drama: Simon Baker, “The Mentalist”; Michael C. Hall, “Dexter”; Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”; Hugh Laurie, “House”; Bill Paxton, “Big Love” – Oh, I like Jon Hamm cause he’s really cute.

          Actress, Drama: Glenn Close, “Damages”; January Jones, “Mad Men”; Julianna Margulies, “The Good Wife”; Anna Paquin, “True Blood”; Kyra Sedgwick, “The Closer.” – This one is tough. I like so many of them. Paul is sensing a Kyra win here.

          Series, Musical or Comedy: “30 Rock,” NBC; “Entourage,” HBO; “Glee,” Fox; “Modern Family,” ABC; “The Office,” NBC. We love ‘Glee’! Best show in years!

          Actor, Musical or Comedy: Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”; Steve Carell, “The Office”; David Duchovny, “Californication”; Thomas Jane, “Hung”; Matthew Morrison, “Glee.” – We love Glee but Thomas Jane in Hung is great and big.

          Actress, Musical or Comedy: Toni Collette, “United States of Tara”; Courteney Cox, “Cougar Town”; Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie”; Tina Fey, “30 Rock”; Lea Michele, “Glee.” – Lea Michele because she is awesomely wonderful like Barbra Streisand without the pretentious fuckery.

          Miniseries or Movie: We like to call it Drama ADD. We really can’t pay attention to a miniseries and since they are true stories, we rather read a synopsis.

          Supporting Actress, Series, Miniseries or Movie: Jane Adams, “Hung”; Rose Byrne, “Damages”; Jane Lynch, “Glee”; Janet McTeer, “Into the Storm”; Chloe Sevigny, “Big Love,”- This one is easy. Jane Lynch! Anyone who has seen Glee knows what we mean. She rocks. And that’s how CoupleDumb ‘C’s it!

          Supporting Actor, Series, Miniseries or Movie: Michael Emerson, “Lost”; Neil Patrick Harris, “How I Met Your Mother”; William Hurt, “Damages”; John Lithgow, “Dexter”; Jeremy Piven, “Entourage.”- Michael Emerson is the thing of nightmares. Ben for the win!
