Recently, lots of award bloggers posted their predix for best comedy/musical pix at the Golden Globes and all of them — strangely — missed a contender very likely to be nominated.

Gold Derby has learned from reliable sources that members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association "absolutely love" "Red," that snarky thriller starring Bruce Willis as a former C.I.A. cat on the run plus Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich. Audiences adored it too ($80 million at the box office) and so did a few critics like the New York Post's Kyle Smith, who cheered, "'Red' has more snappy joy in store than practically all of last summer's busted blockbusters."

Expect it to bag noms for best comedy/musical picture, actor (Willis) and maybe even supporting actor (Malkovich as a conspiracy-minded LSD tripper) and supporting actress (Mirren as a machine-gun-toting Rambo).

Other leading contenders for best musical-comedy picture are "Alice in Wonderland," "Barney's Version," "Burlesque," "How Do You Know," "The Kids Are All Right," "Made in Dagenham" and "Nowhere Boy."

By the by, one film that will not be nominated for best comedy/musical picture -- despite what many top pundits say --  is "Get Low." Sony Pictures Classics confirms to Gold Derby that it was submitted to HPFA as a drama, not a comedy as has been reported erroneously across the web.
