Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, missing “Philomena” and “Rush”
Who’s missing? Blue Jasmine, The Butler, Saving Mr. Banks

One of my biggest cheers this morning was for Rush, which I was so worried would be completely forgotten this awards season. It was such a great film, and definitely a good pick for the Golden Globes. I don’t quite get the hype for Philomena, which was fine but hardly worth a mention here. It did manage to bump “Saving Mr. Banks,” which may now be an Emma Thompson-only affair, and “The Butler” is also nowhere to be found. Captain Phillips did well today, as did Gravity and 12 Years a Slave, the two frontrunners. I’ve seen this whole list, and I’m pretty happy.

Who will win? Probably 12 Years a Slave.
