Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones win an Award

FOR ”Chicago”

WHY? Golden Globes voters must have really enjoyed Zeta-Jones and Zellweger’s man-murdering vaudevillians who vie for the spotlight on screen — because these dual nominations are as close as we’ll get to a real-life rematch. Even though Zeta-Jones has the smaller role, choosing between these two is a tough call: Both women display precise footwork, surprisingly strong singing, and a whole lot of that old razzle-dazzle. These gals aren’t likely to resort to the shady escapades of their characters as they compete for the Globe, but the Beverly Hilton should get metal detectors, just in case.
