Golden Globes Predictions

Best Picture (Drama)
Will Win: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Because the Globes and the Oscars have never agreed on Best Picture since LOTR; I'm assuming Button goes the Atonement route...)
Possibly: Slumdog Millionaire
My Preference: The Reader

Best Picture (Musical/Comedy)
Will Win: Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Possibly: Happy-Go-Lucky
My Preference: Happy-Go-Lucky

Best Director
Will Win: Danny Boyle - Slumdog Millionaire

Best Screenplay
Will Win: Simon Beaufoy - Slumdog Millionaire
Possibly: Eric Roth - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
My Preference: 

Best Actor (Drama)
Will Win: Mickey Rourke - The Wrestler (I'm guessing that the momentum shifts here)
Possibly: Sean Penn - Milk (Would be a home-run, but he's too critical of the 
Globes, and won recently)
My Preference: Sean Penn - Milk

Best Actor (Musical/Comedy)
Will Win: Dustin Hoffman - Last Chance Harvey
Possibly: Colin Farrell - In Bruges
My Preference: James Franco - Pineapple Express

Best Actress (Drama)
