Kicking off Awards Season on January 15

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards® take place on January 15. This year’s host, once again, is the funny Ricky Gervais.

Somewhat unpredictable, the Golden Globes® also give us a glimpse at what might be Academy Award® contenders as well as the best in television.

Watch for nominations to be released on December 15. It has already been announced that Morgan Freeman will receive this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Early predictions? Look for “War Horse,” “The Descendants” and “The Artist” to nab many nominations here en route to doing the same at the Academy Awards.

Films to watch:

War Horse (directed by Steven Spielberg)

Moneyball (staring Brad Pitt)

The Descendants (with George Clooney)

• Land of Blood and Honey (written and directed by Angela Jolie)

The Artist (silent cinema comedy)

The Rum Diary (with Johnny Depp)

Midnight in Paris (directed by Woody Allen)

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (with Sandra Bullock)

My Week with Marilyn (staring Michelle Williams as Marilyn Munroe)
