Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5
Who’s missing: George Clooney (The Ides of March), Paul Giammati (The Ides of March), Armie Hammer (J Edgar), Tom Hanks (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Ides of March), Nick Nolte (Warrior), Brad Pitt (The Tree of Life), Max von Sydow (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), Christoph Waltz (Carnage)

I came close to perfection here, and I’m quite happy about my mistake, since I think that Viggo Mortensen (A Dangerous Method) was easily the best part of the otherwise snubbed David Cronenberg film, and I’m happy to see him recognized. No such luck for SAG nominees Armie Hammer and Nick Nolte, and despite the abundant love for “The Ides of March,” none of its supporting stars are here either. Instead, SAG-less Albert Brooks (Drive) makes an appearance, despite no other love for his film, and joins Jonah Hill (Moneyball), whose chances are looking better and better every day, and locked contenders Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn) and Christopher Plummer (Beginners).

Who could win? Probably Plummer.
