Golden Globe Predictions

I suppose I should go and take a stab at predicting the Golden Globe noms which will be announced in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.  So here they are.  I have predicted five nominees in each category bjt the HPFA has gone with six on more than one occasion - which is where the alternate choices come in.   Of course some of them I maybe cheat a little by naming as many as four alternates.
