win a night at the movies, care of fandango “awards watch”
I love awards season! My favorite awards show has always been the Golden Globes, although this year’s was bizarre and awkward and uncomfortable. Everyone seemed drunk, no one could find their way to the stage through the horribly-designed labyrinth of a seating arrangement and Diane Keaton singing the Girl Scouts’ song to Woody Allen, who couldn’t be bothered showing up to receive his Lifetime Achievement Award? Not even going there.
I’m hoping for a better Oscars.
To get you ready for the big day, Fandango is hosting an Awards Ballot Challenge, with prizes ranging from movie tickets to an A-list Hollywood vacation. Just make your picks, share them with friends and come back every week for extra entries.

I’ll be making my own predictions closer to the actual Academy Awards but, meanwhile, you can read my choices for the top categories here. Unfortunately, sigh, they’re probably not the same …
