The under-appreciated 2013 Golden Globes is in full swing – heavyweights contenders

The first major awards show of the season, The Golden Globes never completely mirror the Academy Awards, which will be held on Sunday in Beverly Hills, California, by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. So far Golden Globes heavyweights are: Meryl Streep has won the most Golden Globes (8), followed by Jack Nicholson (6) and Francis Ford Coppola, Shirley MacLaine, Rosalind Russell and Oliver Stone (5 apiece).

We’re offering up our predictions for the show on who will win and who should win?

Best motion picture — drama

There are 5 contenders “Argo,” “Django Unchained,” “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln” and “Zero Dark Thirty.” “Lincoln” is our favorite.

Best motion picture — comedy or musical

The contenders are “Les Miserables,” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” and “Silver Linings Playbook.” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” is our favorite.

Best director

The contenders are Steven Spielberg (“Lincoln”), Ang Lee (“Life of Pi”), Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”) and Ben Affleck (“Argo”). “Steven Spielberg” is our favorite.

Best screenplay

The contenders are Tony Kushner for “Lincoln” (based upon Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book), David O. Russell for “Silver Linings Playbook” (based upon Matthew Quick’s novel), Chris Terrio for “Argo” (based upon Joshuah Bearman’s article in Wired), Tarantino for “Django Unchained” (inspired by the 1966 spaghetti Western “Django”) and Mark Boal for “Zero Dark Thirty” (based upon his own reporting). “Tony Kushner” is our favorite.
