>Here is an updated list of my favorite nominees for this year’s Golden Globes, along with a few guesses. Most of my definite favorites are within the film categories. Some guesses are based on certain wins at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards, while I’m sticking to definite favorites in certain other categories.
