Golden Globe Nominees: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5, missing “Frost/Nixon”
Who’s missing? “Revolutionary Road”

I had this weird thing about “Doubt” and “Frost/Nixon” never quite crossing hairs – it had to be one or the other but not both. As it turns out, I was pretty much right, since this is the only category where both are in fact nominated. “Doubt” got five nominations because of this and four acting mentions, and that’s good for it since it’s the only one here without a Best Picture or Best Director nomination. This is somewhat of a blow to “Revolutionary Road,” but it’s not a huge deal. Whatever happened to well-written comedies? Shouldn’t “Happy-Go-Lucky” or “In Bruges” have been here? I remember a time not long ago when “Love Actually” got nominated in this category.

Who will win? I’m thinking a The Curious Case of Benjamin Button sweep.
