This Sunday, the 67th annual Golden Globe awards will invade televisions across North America. While the Oscars qualify as the most prestigious night of Hollywood backslapping, the Golden Globes is the night that movie stars take home the trophies. Expect no exceptions this year when A-listers sweep up all the major categories to drunken applause from the equally famous audience. The following list represents the official Metro predictions for Golden Globe winners in 2010.

Best Picture:
The Hurt Locker has swept the critics awards and has a shot at an Oscar, but expect Up In The Air to take the Best Picture prize in drama. Between a lead role for Hollywood royalty George Clooney, able direction from Juno’s Jason Reitman, and gently comic social commentary, a win is practically guaranteed. None of the nominees in the musical/comedy are particularly stellar, so the trophy will probably go to the raunchy The Hangover.

Best Actor:
Jeff Bridges has been one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood for decades and this will probably be the year that he gets a collection of statues for his impressive work in Crazy Heart. Expect Matt Damon to take home well-deserved top honours in the comedy category for The Informant!.

Best Actress:
Sandra Bullock set a record at the box office this year for bringing in more cash than any other actress. For that reason alone she will inevitably score a Golden Globe for The Blind Side. It certainly doesn’t hurt that her stiffest competition comes from Meryl Streep’s memorable turn in Julie And Julia, which has been relegated to the comedy category. Streep is locked in to win that prize before becoming the Best Actress favourite at every other ceremony in 2010.

Best Supporting Actor:
Christoph Waltz should have been given this award when Inglourious Basterds was released in August. No one else comes close in his category and no other actor in any category more richly deserves an award this year.

Best Supporting Actress:
Comedienne Mo’Nique has been an awards favourite ever since her incredibly personal performance in Precious debuted at TIFF. Mo’Nique will give her first of many tear-filled acceptance speeches in 2010 this Sunday before releasing whatever unfortunate lowbrow comedy she has lined up next.

Best Director:
This fall, everyone wanted to beat up on James Cameron for being overindulgent during the production of Avatar. Now that it’s on track to become the highest grossing film of all time, the director will be rewarded. Let’s just hope that he doesn’t declare himself the “king of the world” again come Oscar time.
