Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

The competition: Sally Hawkins’ chatty sister (Blue Jasmine), Jennifer Lawrence’s diva wife (American Hustle), Lupita Nyongo’s abused slave (12 Years a Slave), Julia Roberts’ anger-prone daughter (August: Osage County), and June Squibb’s sarcastic wife (Nebraska).

For your information: Nyongo and Squibb are Globe first-timers, but the other three women have all won Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical trophies. Lawrence won last year, and Hawkins won in 2008. Roberts has won three times – each time in a different category – out of a total of seven previous nominations. Lawrence, Nyongo, and Squibb’s films are all nominated for top awards.

Who should win? Lawrence or Squibb

Who will win? Without Oprah, it’s anyone’s game, but I’m guessing Lawrence.
