WOODBURY - Syosset's Natalie Portman is expected to walk away a winner Sunday night at the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards. She is considered the front-runner for best actress in a dramatic film for her role in Darren Aronofsky's psychological thriller "Black Swan." Her competition is Nicole Kidman for "Rabbit Hole," Halle Berry for "Frankie and Alice," Jennifer Lawrence for "Winter's Bone" and Michelle Williams for her role in "Blue Valentine." "Black Swan" is also one of the five nominees for best drama, along with "The Social Network," "The King's Speech," "The Fighter" and "Inception." "The King's Speech" has the most nominations, but David Fincher's film about Facebook has won scores of best film honors heading into the awards show. Best actor in a dramatic film is anyone's guess. Those hoping to walk away victorious are "King's Speech" star Colin Firth, Jesse Eisenberg for "The Social Network," James Franco for "127 Hours," Ryan Gosling for "Blue Valentine" and "The Fighter's" Mark Wahlberg. Another closely watched category will be best comedy or musical film, with "The Kids Are All Right" up against "Alice in Wonderland," "Red," "The Tourist" and "Burlesque." Long Island's Alec Baldwin and Edie Falco also are up for their roles in the television shows.Full list of Golden Globe nominees
