The race for best drama picture at the Golden Globes is a close contest between "Avatar" and "Up in the Air," according to the predictions of these pundits: Thelma Adams (Us Weekly), Scott Bowles (USA Today), Lane Brown (Vulture, New York Magazine), Erik Davis (Cinematical), Edward Douglas (ComingSoon.net), Scott Feinberg (AndTheWinnerIs), Marshall Fine (Star Magazine, Hollywood and Fine), Paul Gaita (The Circuit, The Envelope), Pete Hammond (Notes on a Season, The Envelope), Courney Hazlett (Scoop, MSNBC), Dave Karger (Entertainment Weekly), Tariq Khan, (Fox News), Peter Knegt (Indie Wire), Kevin Lewin (World Entertainment News Network), Guy Lodge (InContention), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Mark Olsen (L.A. Times), Steve Pond (The Odds, TheWrap), Nathanial Rogers (FilmExperience), Sam Rubin (KTLA), Sasha Stone (AwardsDaily), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Jeff Wells (Hollywood-Elsewhere), Chuck Walton (Fandango), Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today).

We'll be adding more predictions from other prophets soon, so keep checking back to Gold Derby. As for me, well, I need more time to noodle some of these races. I've included some predix below; more to follow. Forecastng the Globes is always a puzzle. This year is harder than most.
