Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 3/5
Who’s missing: Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia), Anne Hathaway (One Day), Keira Knightley (A Dangerous Method), Helen Mirren (The Debt), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Rachel Weisz (The Whistleblower)

Things are looking up for Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) and down for Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), as the former scored nominations today and yesterday and the latter was snubbed at both ceremonies. I’m not sure quite what to make of the inclusion of Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), a film which popped up additionally for Best Original Score but nowhere else. Michelle Williams, represented in the comedy race, needs a spot, so she may be out for the SAG list, which also included Globe nominees Viola Davis (The Help), Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), and Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin).

Who could win? Could it be anyone but Streep?
