It’s award season again, and The Golden Globe nominees are out so that people can start the official furor over snubs, bad picks, and who will wear what on the red carpet.

For those who have had their finger on the pulse of the prediction world, there aren’t too many big surprises, although there are a few snubs that will get mentioned as the internet heats up.

The question that really hits hard immediately is how well will these nominees match up with the Critics Choice Awards nominees and the Oscar nominees. I have a feeling there will be some differences between these and the Critics Choice Awards, and since those are usually the best predictor of the Oscars, there may be some shuffling, and room for more movies to get a shot at some award this year.

Take a look below, and be sure to mention your picks for most irritating snub.
