Golden Globe '07 Results

Back in mid December I predicted the winners of the Golden Globes, based on pretty much no information. I thought it might be fun to have a look at the results. I only watched about an hour of the Globes themselves.... honestly it just got too lame for me. I see them as the middle of the road awards show, and with the Oscar nominations being announced this coming Tuesday, the Globes will shortly fade into the background and we can all move on with our lives.

haha... like it was even stopping us before.

Ok, here's the list:

Best Picture Drama - Babel
Best Actress Drama - Helen Miran (The Queen)
Best Actor Drama - Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland)

Of the winners versus my predictions I only got a mesley 8 total right out of 25. Ouch.
Did you guys play along too? How did you do? Make better choices than me?

I'm game. You send me the list and I'll fill it out and get it back to you. I'll even put a monetary wager on it. Hope you're licensed.

last year on the site they had a pretty decent ballot form, I assume they will again this year after all the nominations have been announced Tuesday morning.
