If we know one thing about celebs, it's that people love to throw trophies at them. Ah, the entertainment industry. It's truly a magical place.

It's almost time for the 2014 Golden Globes and once again, we're doing all the work for you by picking the people who should win in the movie categories and the people who will win. Obviously, those two aren't always the same.

Here are our predictions for the big movie categories for the Globes, also known as everybody drinks and if Tommy Lee Jones is there he'll probably glare at Tina Fey and Amy Poehler the whole time:

American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams

Sony Pictures

Best Motion Picture, Drama

Should Win: 12 Years a Slave
Will Win: Gravity
12 Years a Slave is being showered with nominations for acting, but we're giving this one to Gravity for the mere fact that it was so pretty to watch. In the biz, "so pretty" means an outstanding achievement in cinematography. Plus: Sandra Bullock.

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy

Should Win: American Hustle
Will Win:
American Hustle 
Everyone is buzzing about it, and the HFPA loves Jennifer Lawrence and pretty much everyone else in this film.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama

Should Win: Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave
Will Win: Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave
It's his to lose. Sorry, Tom Hanks. You are still a national treasure.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Paramount Pictures

Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical

Should Win: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf of Wall Street
Will Win: Christian BaleAmerican Hustle
Leo might as well be called Snubby McNeverGetsAnyAwardsLove, and we have a bad feeling he'll be overlooked again.

Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama

Should Win: Sandra Bullock, Gravity
Will Win: Sandra Bullock, Gravity
She's everybody's favorite actress, but she's also hella talented so this one is all hers. Did a day go by since Gravity came out where people weren't talking about Sandy's performance? Nope.

Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy

Should Win: Amy AdamsAmerican Hustle
Will Win: Meryl Streep
August: Osage County
Honestly, Meryl could not appear in any film or piece of work for an entire year and she would still get nominated come awards season. "Meryl was seen walking down the sidewalk, and it was the greatest work in the history of cinema. Back up the trophy truck." She'll win, and we're OK with it. Especially since Jennifer Lawrence isn't in this category to snatch it from her again.

Jared Leto, The Dallas Buyers Club

Anne Marie Fox / Focus Features

Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture

Should Win: Jared LetoDallas Buyers Club
Will Win: Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club
There is way too much buzz surrounding his performance for the HFPA to ignore.

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture

Should Win: Lupita Nyong'o12 Years a Slave
Will Win: Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle
Nothing can stop the J.Law train, not even the moving performence by Nyong'o.
