Starting Sunday 15 Jan with the Golden Globes and ending at the 84th Oscars on 26 Feb, Hollywood is about to go red carpet crazy. Here are Charlie Lyne's top tips

The Iron Lady

Reasons it'll do well This highly subjective (and opportunely forgetful) look back at the career of the mischievous milk snatcher refashions Maggie as both a feminist crusader and a sympathetic victim, thanks in no small part to a typically winning performance from 16-time Oscar nominee Meryl Streep. Don't count her "Out Out Out" of the Best Actress category.

Reasons it won't There's evidence to suggest that the film has already alienated people on both sides of the political spectrum, with liberals furious over its "humanising" effect on Thatcher and Tories upset that it doesn't make her look formidable enough.

Would definitely win Best Power Hair
