Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 2/5, picking only Javier Bardem and Dustin Hoffman
Who’s missing? No one of significance, just contenders like Ben Stiller (Tropic Thunder), Ricky Gervais (Ghost Town), and the sadly snubbed Sam Rockwell (Choke)

Here we have three wonderful surprises! Not one but both of the “In Bruges” guys as well as the hilarious performance from James Franco in “Pineapple Express.” They recognized “Walk Hard” last year but made up for it with these sparkling inclusions. I’ve yet to see “Last Chance Harvey,” but otherwise this looks pretty solid, and it’s great to have such unexpected and terrific inclusions.

Who will win? It seemed like Dustin Hoffman was the only one with any shot, but could it go to one of the “In Bruges” guys? I’ll stick with Hoffman.
