Drama Picture

The eventual winner of the Golden Globe Award as Best Film Drama will certainly receive an Oscar nomination in their top category as well. The past few champs have been "The Descendants" (2011), "The Social Network" (2010), "Avatar" (2009), "Slumdog Millionaire" (2008), and "Atonement" (2007). However, notice that "Slumdog" was the only one of those five champs to win the Academy Award as Best Picture.

According to our Oscars Predictions Center, the dramatic films most likely to also receive Globe bids include "Anna Karenina" (directed by Joe Wright), "Argo" (Ben Affleck), "Beasts of the Southern Wild" (Benh Zeitlin), "Django Unchained" (Quentin Tarantino), "Life of Pi" (Ang Lee), "Lincoln" (Steven Spielberg), "The Master" (Paul Thomas Anderson), and "Zero Dark Thirty" (Kathryn Bigelow).

Others to watch are "The Dark Knight Rises" (Christopher Nolan), "Flight" (Robert Zemeckis), "Hitchcock" (Sacha Gervasi), "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (Peter Jackson), "The Hunger Games" (Gary Ross), "The Impossible" (Juan Antonio Bayona), and "The Sessions" (Ben Lewin).

Further down as dark horses might be "Arbitrage" (Nicholas Jarecki), "Cloud Atlas" (Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski), "The Company You Keep" (Robert Redford), "End of Watch" (David Ayer), "Great Expecations" (Mike Newell), "Killing Them Softly" (Andrew Dominik), "A Late Quartet" (Yaron Zilberman), "Promised Land" (Gus Van Sant), "Savages" (Oliver Stone), "Skyfall" (Sam Mendes), and "Therese Raquin" (Charlie Stratton).
