Poll: Will 'Avatar' win best drama picture at the Golden Globes?

December 29, 2009 |  6:45 pm


"Avatar" may be beloved by film critics (83 score at Metacritic) and moviegoers ($232 million at box office), but what about voters at Hollywood awards?

At the Golden Globes, "Avatar" is nominated for best drama picture against "The Hurt Locker," "Inglourious Basterds," "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" and "Up in the Air." Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association love it, but it's not their typical choice for winner. Usually, they prefer more snooty stuff like recent champs "Slumdog Millionaire," "Atonement," "Babel," "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Aviator."

However, Golden Globes voters did choose a box office fantasy six years ago — "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" — so they're not above doing so again. What do you think they'll do? Give us your vote below, then check out our poll asking how many Oscars you think "Avatar" can win. We say it can reap up to nine nominations, including best picture.
