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

My predictions: 4/5
Who’s missing? Sanrda Bullock (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), Carey Mulligan (Shame), Vanessa Redgrave (Coriolanus), Naomi Watts (J Edgar), Evan Rachel Wood (The Ides of March)

I did actually predict all five of these nominees, but I put Berenice Bejo (The Artist) in the lead category instead to make room for SAG-snubbed Shailene Woodley (The Descendants). What’s quite puzzling is that Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) was snubbed despite her film getting in for best picture and best actress, especially since this was the group that was going to nominate her, not SAG. Either way, the Oscar chances of Carey Mulligan aren’t looking too good now with six solid contenders for five slots, but Vanessa Redgrave, who could still surprise. Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) is looking good to make it to the Oscars, and she’s joined by Jessica Chastain (The Help), who got picked for the right movie, and costar Octavia Spencer (The Help).

Who could win? Spencer, probably.
