Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 4/5, picking “Quartet” over “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”
What’s missing? Magic Mike, Ted

This category looked pretty secure in terms of four nominees, and, as tends to be the case, the fifth nominee was a total wild card. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen scored three nominations, and I’m going to have to watch it on DVD this weekend before I dub it another “The Tourist.” The frontrunners are clearly Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook, both of which earned four nominations. Sadly, Moonrise Kingdom earned just one, which is a shame, especially since its score isn’t eligible for the Oscars. Rounding out the list is The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which had a great couple of days with two matching SAG bids, for ensemble and for Maggie Smith, to go with this citation and the Best Actress mention for Judi Dench. I’m still missing two of these films, but it looks like a fun category to me.

What could win? I think it’s Les Miserables without a question.
