oscarhand.jpgDo the Golden Globe nominations really matter in the race for Oscar? Increasingly, people seem to be saying they really don't...certainly, its an honor to be singled out for a prize, but when the accolade comes from a dubious organization with a membership filled mostly with questionable members, whats the point?

No matter, its awards season and over at Movie City News, a group of us are playing along prognosticating what will be nominated for an Oscar next month. The latest Gurus o' Gold awards season survey was posted on Friday (and my full ballot is included below). Keep in mind these are supposed to be the films that players predict will be nominated, not our personal favorites.

BEST PICTURE 1. "Dreamgirls" 2. "Babel" 3. "The Departed" 4. "Little Miss Sunshine" 5. "The Queen" 6. "Little Children" 7. "Letters From Iwo Jima" 8. "United 93" 9. "World Trade Center" 10. "Children of Men" BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE 1. "The Lives of Others" 2. "Volver" 3. "Pan's Labyrinth" 4. "Curse of the Golden Flower" 5. "Grbavica" BEST DOCUMENTARY 1. "An Inconvenient Truth" 2. "Iraq In Fragments" 3. "Jesus Camp" 4. "Jonestown: The Life and Death of People's Temple" 5. "Sisters in Law"
