The time for the 2011 Golden Globes is upon us. The stars have walked the red carpet, endured countless "Who are you wearing?!" queries, engaged in chit-chat about their picks for who'll win. But now it's time to find out who will actually win
, who'll miss their award because they're in the bathroom and who host Ricky Gervais will make fun of the most (our bet: Charlie Sheen).
We'll be watching the show and updating this blog in real time, so be sure to refresh the page every minute or two for a play-by-play of the night and some insightful (or at least entertaining) commentary. Check out our GOLDEN GLOBES LIVE BLOG below! Read More...
The Golden Globes air tomorrow, Sunday, January 16th at 8 p.m. ET — have you filled out your ballot?

Don't forget to log on tomorrow and follow our live commentary during the show!
Who's responsible for Golden Globe nominations and votes?
That'd be the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — a group of 90 international journalists who report on the U.S. film industry. The HFPA represents over 55 countries outside the U.S., and new membership admittance is restricted to five per year (with MPAA accreditation and yearly clip submissions required to maintain status). Every awards show has its own exclusive voting base — therefore, the Globes' viewpoint is unique in that its nominations and winners are chosen by foreign journalists. Read More...

Earlier this week, we asked you, the loyal MTV Movies Blog readers, which movies, actors, directors, writers, composers and songs you thought should win at this year's Golden Globes -- and you responded to the tune of almost 8,400 votes.
The verdict? "Inception" dominated with four victories, earning your stamp of approval in the Best Picture - Drama, Best Director and Best Screenplay for Christopher Nolan, and Best Score for "Hans Zimmer. While Zimmer and Nolan won their categories handily, the Best Picture - Drama race was a tight one, with "Inception" prevailing by just a few percentage points over runner-up "Black Swan" and third-place finisher "The Social Network."

What were you pleased as punch about during your high-school years? Reppin' a spot on the debate team? Leading your soccer squad to the state finals? Scoring straight A's?
Catch the performances of two of this year's youngest critically-acclaimed darlings and you'll wonder why the heck you spent so much time patting yourself on the back over all that trivial jazz.
Hailee Steinfeld, 14, and Jennifer Lawrence, 20, are relative newcomers to the Hollywood scene, but you wouldn't know it after watching them kick cinematic butt in "True Grit" (now in theaters) and "Winter's Bone" (currently available on DVD and Blu-ray), respectively. Steinfeld superbly holds her own amongst the formidable screen presences of veteran greats Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin, while Lawrence successfully carries the entire weight of an indie film on her petite shoulders. These ladies didn't back down from their make-or-break roles, and -- now that awards season is upon us -- they've got the roster of nominations to prove it.
Among their many nods, Lawrence is up for a Golden Globe, a SAG Award and an Independent Spirit Award, while Steinfeld is a contender for a SAG Award. But the accolades aren't all that bond these actresses. The plots of "True Grit" and "Winter's Bone" are strikingly similar. Here are five reasons why these celluloid gems are a match made in back-to-back-viewing heaven. Read More...
It's not the least bit shocking that awards-season front runners like "The Social Network," "The King's Speech" and "Black Swan" cleaned up when the 68th annual Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning. But "The Tourist"? We love Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp as much as the next person, but apparently not nearly as much as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which doles out the Globes. Despite ice-cold reviews and a lukewarm box-office reception, "The Tourist" walked away from today's nominations with three nods, including one for Best Picture. And that was just one of the big surprises. Mark Wahlberg's boxing drama "The Fighter" weighed in with an impressive six noms, while Depp was nominated twice in the same category.
As usual, there were a fair amount of prominent snubs as well. Not a single nod for "True Grit"? Seriously? And are "The Tourist" and "Burlesque" and the rest of Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy race really more worthy of a nomination in that category than "Toy Story 3"? Check out our picks for the biggest snubs and surprises of this year's Golden Globes nominations. Read More...
FROM SPLASH PAGE: We crossed one name off the list of potential "Spider-Man" directors this weekend, but what about the rumored favorite for the gig, "500 Days of Summer" filmmaker Marc Webb?
MTV News caught up with Webb on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet to get his thoughts on the rumors pegging him as Sony's most-wanted man behind the camera when Peter Parker returns to the big screen in 2012.
"Of course," Webb told MTV News when asked if he was a fan of Spider-Man. "Stan Lee, big fan ... love the 'Ultimate [Spider-Man]' stuff."
