Michael's Top 3 Movies to shine at the Golden Globes

Michael: 2009 was famously a bad year for Hollywood stars. None of the big movies: Avatar, Star Trek, Transformers, etc, needed big names, while the likes of Depp, Cage, Murphy and Roberts all bombed with their films. Clooney is the exception because he's a major star who is smart enough to make cool, indie movies. However my top 3 movies to shine at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.
