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

My predictions: 3/5
Who’s missing? Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher), Mila Kunis (Friends with Benefits), Natalie Portman (No Strings Attached), Julia Roberts (Larry Crowne)

I regret making two last-minute moves that messed me up: promoting Bérénice Bejo, who earned a supporting nod, to this category, and getting rid of Jodie Foster (Carnage), who was joined by costar Kate Winslet (Carnage) here. Both actresses were a lot of fun in the film, as were absent male costar Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly. Charlize Theron (Young Adult) is here representing her film, nominated no where else, and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) managed to make it in even though SAG-nominated costar Melissa McCarthy is nowhere to be found. Rounding out the list is the only legitimate Oscar contender on this list, Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn), whose film also earned a Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical mention.

Who could win? I’m betting it will be Williams.
