My Golden Globes Picks

While may of you are betting on the NFL games and sweating your DFS line-ups (For once, I have a couple of promising ones!), but tonight begins the season I wish wagering was more popular in: Movie and TV awards.

Should you choose to make some predictions with friends, these are my picks for this year. I should preface that I am much more confident in my movie picks than my TV ones, because the TV voters tend to get cuckoo crazy with whatever is new and amazing. The movie ones though, I feel pretty strongly about, so we shall see how I fare in a few hours. The bolded ones are my picks to win.
