Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

The competition: Alice in Wonderland, Burlesque, The Kids Are All Right, Red, The Tourist

For your information: This cockamamie category doesn’t make much sense at all. “Alice in Wonderland” is up for Best Actor (Johnny Depp) and Best Original Score. “Burlesque” has two original songs nominated. “The Tourist” is up for Best Actor (Depp again) and Actress (Angelina Jolie). “Red” is only nominated here. “The Kids Are All Right” is up for two Best Actresses (Annette Bening & Julianne Moore) and Best Screenplay. In this category, being a strong Oscar contender doesn’t guarantee anything: “Sweeney Todd” beat “Juno,” “Dreamgirls” beat “Little Miss Sunshine,” and “Evita” beat “Fargo.” What does that say about musicals? Yikes; I’ll be so mad if “Burlesque” wins.

Who should win: “The Kids Are All Right” or “Alice in Wonderland

Who will win: When (according to most), there’s only one good film in the mix, that film usually wins: The Kids Are All Right.
