The Golden Globes:
Who Should, Could and Will Win
and who Won!
By Mitchell Burns
Tonight the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will award the second best award, after the Oscar, to a group of deserving winners while Ricky Gervais, in his third time hosting, will mock everyone in attendance. Gervais has made me laugh more than any host of the academy awards since Billy Crystal in 2003, So I am glad that Gervais is back (and Crystal for that matter). 
There are a few movies on the Golden Globes ballot sheet that I have not seen, but I promise I will see them all before the Academy Awards on Feb. 26th. I have seen most of the movies mentioned, and most I have liked, some I have loved and some just didn’t stick out enough to even be nominated. Below, I will state who I think should win, Who I think Will win, and Who I think Could win (If the person that I think will win doesn’t) 
*** And now I have edited this blog, since the Globes are over, to show who won, and which categories I got right, wrong or horribly wrong. Look for the highlighted Portions to see where I made the right pick!!

The Descendants, The Artist, Modern Family, Homeland, Octavia Spencer, Meryl Streep, and Clooney were the big winners of the night, while Gervais leaned towards the safe side and wasn’t as funny as previous years! read on!!
