    I think Ben Affleck will join the list of actors who won a Golden Globe for Best Director without getting a corresponding Oscar nomination:
    Clint Eastwood, “Bird”
    Barbra Streisand, “Yentl”
    Paul Newman, “Rachel Rachel”

    I think Affleck takes it, not so sure Lincoln will go over well with HFPA. Bigelow did lose for THL, so they may not want to pass her over twice.

    I think directing will either go to Steven or Ang.

    “Argo” and Affleck win b/c voting was completed before the Oscar noms came out.

    No way. The only thing that could rescue ARGO would be a combined DGA+PGA victory, but I guess that’s not happening. However I think ARGO is winning Drama Pic/Director tonight at the GG…

    I’ll say ZD30 will win Drama Picture and Directing. The HFPA will be going a little out of their bounds by awarding ZD30 and more importantly Bigelow whom they passed three years ago, which would be extra cred for them which is what they seem to be gunning for after the Tourist/Burlesque fiasco. It might also be Lincoln for Picture, and Bigelow for Director.

    I do wish it’s either Argo or ZD30 for the big prize. Would be even more of a FU to the Academy.

    I hadn’t really given Ang Lee any serious consideration to win directing at the Globes, but looking at their history, the Globes have awarded more elaborate, visually appealing, big-budget box office hit, epic, sometimes fantasy films over some of the more serious or conventional films the Oscars have awarded in the directing category (Hugo over The Artist, Avatar over The Hurt Locker, and Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon over Traffic).

    The Globes haven’t been the most reliable in the last few years. However, the way all of this scheduling has gone down, this could really sway the course of the race, or something like that. Who knows? Anyhow, they’re probably going to go for Lincoln. The Globes usually go with the biggest or showiest film. This is why films like Atonement, Babel, Avatar, etc. can win. Lincoln is the kind of film that will win.

    Except the story of Lincoln is far more relevant to U.S. voters, and may not have the same appeal to Hollywood Foreign Press voters as all of the films you mentioned whose core audience isn’t geared primarily towards Americans.

    I wouldnt underestimate the play that Lincoln, the man and the movie, has with foreign voters.  I live in the town where his presidential library is located and the percentage of international vistors is not low. The respect and reverence for this man extends worldwide and I think that will extend to Gloden Globe voters who now have a chance to honor a film about him.

    Oscar nominations will not have ANY impact on tonight.. Both Affleck and Argo as well as Bigelow and Zero Dark Thirty are highly competitive. My prediction is both Bigelow and Zero Dark Thirty win however I think Affleck and Argo could win. I don’t know why but I think Spielberg and Lincoln lose tonight..

    The golden globes  might give ARGO
    the best picture and best director awards
    but we know that winning  the globe for
    picture hardly matters in correlation to the
    academy awards…If ARGO would win the
    SAG  ensemble that might say something.
    I actually think theres a split tonight with
    Affleck winning the director award but
    LINCOLN prevailing as best picture….
    Tony Kushner screenplay solidifies Lincoln..

    Kushner winning tonight has no significance to which film wins BP Drama.. He is beloved.
