i'm not going to bother with the international categories...but, i have guesses for those, too.

we'll find out in early feb how wrong i am.

side note: a few of us at work have some bets on all the awards happening this season (SAG, Grammys, Golden Globes)....for the record, the 2 winners had 8 correct predictions for last night's Golden Globes...while i had 7....SO CLOSE!
