Since Wednesday when the People’s Choice Awards aired, we can now officially get excited for Awards Season! That’s right – ball gowns, endearing speeches, not so endearing interruptions (echem, Kanye?), and lots of best and worst dress analyses are on their way – all accessorized with an alluring red carpet and, we’re sure, a complimentary Judith Leiber clutch. There are great movies and TV to be judged this season which is why we’re most excited for the elite Golden Globes because it combines both and it’s airing this Sunday at 8/7c on NBC, with the red carpet pre-show airing at 7/6c.
While the fashions walking into the Globes are the most exciting for us to see, the nominees and winners are the second biggest draw to the event and we’d like to cast our votes for who will be taking home the gold in our favorite categories. Note – these are who we’d like to see win as opposed to who actually will.
