Gunning for Globes glory

Golden Globes 2002

The comedy-musical category offers films a better chance of a best pic nom than the more selective Oscars.

BANDITS (MGM)

Despite the multistar attraction of Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton and Cate Blanchett, caper comedy is far from a shoo-in.
BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY (Miramax)

HFPA habitually nominates British comedies, especially when it’s a hit like this one.
HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (Fine Line)

The definitive dark horse, gender-bending rocker has a chance because it’s a musical like no other this year.
KATE & LEOPOLD (Miramax)

ShowEast screenings gave first indication that Miramax may have something to tubthump and, besides, HFPA adores Meg Ryan.
LEGALLY BLONDE (MGM)

Deemed a bit lightweight, pic’s ace is ever-impressive star Reese Witherspoon.
MONSTERS, INC. (Disney)

A second toon nom in this category is likely, especially with monstrously sustained B.O. and a weak slate of competitors.
MOULIN ROUGE (Fox)

Though it divides the room, Baz Luhrmann’s Montmartre fantasia has strong support, and even better, it has Nicole.
OCEAN’S ELEVEN (Warner Bros.)

Qualifying as a comedy in Globes race would be a major boost for this Rat Pack update, and if it needs any more help, there is both the massive star appeal and the Soderbergh touch.
THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS (Disney)

Many are anticipating Wes Anderson’s follow-up to “Rushmore,” though opinion among the HFPA is divided among those who have seen it.
SERENDIPITY (Miramax)

The Globes love affair with romantic comedy could aid this nearly ignored valentine.
SHREK (DreamWorks)

The ’99 win for “Toy Story 2” makes this a hotly desired prize for competitor DreamWorks, and, as the one studio pic with broad consensus appeal, it may be a favorite.
