Golden Globes statuette

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.

Blue Valentine will get some HFPA love. Expect well-deserved nominations for both Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.

• 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.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Garrett Hedlund for Country Strong have a "strong" chance of receiving noms in the lead acting categories for Musical or Comedy performances.

-Award season favorites Natalie Portman, Jeff Bridges, Annette Bening, Matt Damon, James Franco, Christian Bale and Colin Firth will all receive nominations.

Josh Duhamel will say something funny and off script. He's being joined by Katie Holmes and Blair Underwood to read off the nominees.
