If you're an awards geek (and freak) and haven't stopped by Gold Derby yet this season, then, well, you're not a true awards geek then. Tom O' Neil runs a pretty tight ship over there, predicting winners for all the big awards of the season, while doling out a number of other fun posts featuring nominee quotes, racetrack odds and more.

As he does every year, Tom has brought a number of the industry's biggest critics and pundits together in order to score a glimpse at what the future holds for the current awards season. For his most recent round of predicting the winners out of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and New York Film Critics Circle, yours truly scored the highest out of the 13 critics and pundits polled. Ahem ... high five? Okay, nevermind.

Following this morning's Golden Globe nominations, O'Neil has just released his popular racetrack odds for the Globes, predicting 'The Social Network' to top the nomination-leading 'King's Speech' because, as he says, "voters seem to prefer what's hip -- and Yankee. Remember, they're members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They speak with funny accents. They feel like outsiders and, when choosing award winners, they often make a special point for opting for what's cool -- like they demonstrated last year by picking 'Avatar' over eventual Oscar Best Picture champ 'The Hurt Locker.'"

Check out the rest of O'Neil's Golden Globes racetrack odds (for entertainment purposes only, natch) over at Gold Derby.
