NoBo’s Guide to the Golden Globes

HOLLYWOOD – Ricky Gervais is back to host the 69th Annual Golden Globes on Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 8PM on NBC, 7PM if you’d like to see what everyone is wearing. The Golden Globes are the unofficial opening of awards season, and there are a host of great movies nominated, many that have been reviewed here at NoBo in the past few weeksas we recapped 2011.

Gervais, hot off of last years berating of Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr, and the cast of Sex and the City (being gay and scientologist, a drug addict, and too old, respectively) is again hosting, sure to bring his trademark snarky humor.

Check out the NoBo Guide to the Golden Globes to make your own predictions or as you sit down to watch on Sunday!

The films in blue are the NoBo Editor’s Choice while the films in red are the likely winner. If we believe our choice is the likely winner, the film will be in green.
