What does NGNG mean?

No Guts No Glory.

Basically, your underdog pick to upset.

Ah! I heard that term on another Oscar blog and wondered what it meant then!

k_obrien said...

Yes -- It's from Awards Daily.

Or as Ryan C. explained it to me (I thought NGNG was a film and spent a good hour trying to figure out which one): NGNG stands for a collaboration between George Clooney and the makers of "Memoirs of a Geisha" called "Night Good, Night Geisha."

I think you did much better than me, haha - I guessed 7/14, which I guess it's good for my Golden Globes predictions that are mostly rubbish at all times.

I didn't even try to guess any of the TV winners -- thank God for that. At least I got Extras right!
