Looking for the Golden Globes' Dale Earnhardt Jr.

January 17, 2010 |  2:38 pm

For an awards season that looked so wide open just a few months ago, the race has grown surprisingly tight. The next lap of the film calendar's version of the Daytona 500 happens this evening at the Golden Globes, where a number of interesting contests will play out.

Dayt Who wins the latest round of the increasingly Quaritchian best-picture battle between "Up in the Air" and "Avatar," as the two face off in the battle for best-picture drama? Can Carey Mulligan retake some of the momentum on best actress? Can "Julie & Julia" take the last step and establish itself as a best-picture Oscar contender with a best-comedy win?

And, of course, who's most likely to pull a Christine Lahti and be in the bathroom when winners are announced? (Quick answer: the "Hangover" people.) Our picks for the winners (and backup choices) -- and perhaps some answers to these questions -- below.

We'll also be live-blogging from inside the Beverly Hilton throughout the telecast as actors, filmmakers and an assorted cast of characters make their way back stage. Follow us here at 24 Frames, and see you at the Hilton.
