My headache just went away. Never mind all of that torment I just went through trying to figure out who's going to win best drama actor at the Golden Globes. The world's reigning Oscar and Globes seer Pete Hammond already has it figured out.
Forget all of those film critics' awards to Philip Seymour Hoffman for "Capote." Hammond predicts a different winner. "I would say probably Heath Ledger," he emails me when I ask him what he thinks will happen. "They like the glamour boys more than anything else and the pic is their leading contender whereas Hoffman is 'Capote's' sole nom. If these two clash, however, and split that small HFPA vote, Clive Owen in support last year while saying that Morgan Freeman would still go on and win the Oscar. It's the movie star thing. I don't know that Hoffman is quite that for them. Who knows? Maybe they'll really go crazy and give it to Russell Crowe again. Don't hold your breath, Ledger!"
