You gotta love the wacky and unpredicatable Hollywood Foreign Press. A day after the Broadcast Film Critics Association announced their nominees, it's the HFPA's turn. They will share their nominations tomorrow morning with the world, and I'll be there bright and early at The Beverly Hilton Hotel covering for E! News. Here are a few quick predictions for tomorrow's big announcement. With 30 actors receiving nominations in the film categories, there are always a few surprises.
• Jacki Weaver from Animal Kingdom will get nominated for Best Supporting Actress. If you haven't seen the movie yet, stop reading this blog and go watch it right away! She's terrific in it.
• Maybe we'll hear Russell Brand's name read tomorrow? Look for the British star to receive a surprise nomination for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for Get Him To The Greek.
