Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 5/5
What’s missing? Beasts of the Southern Wild, Flight, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,The Master

It’s always exciting to guess the top category correctly. This list makes complete sense given Globe voters’ historic tastes, and it’s just a shame that the wonderful “Beasts of the Southern Wild” couldn’t make the cut. Hopefully it can still fit into Oscar’s expanded field. Lincoln has a whopping seven nominations, while Argo and Django Unchained each have five. Zero Dark Thirty has four, and Life of Pi has three. It’s a competitive category, and ultimately it should boil down to the battle between “Lincoln” and “Argo,” with one underdog film poised to upset. I think that, like in 2009 with “The Hurt Locker,” it’s not going to happen until after the Globes. All of these films are nominated for Best Director as well.

Who could win? I vote for Argo over “Lincoln.”
