Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

The competition: David O. Russell and Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle), Spike Jonze (Her), Bob Nelson (Nebraska), Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope (Philomena), and John Ridley (12 Years a Slave)

For your information: The only returning nominee in this race is Russell, who was nominated last year for “Silver Linings Playbook.” Jonze has been nominated before in the directing race, as has Russell. Comedies rarely win this award, though “Midnight in Paris” did win two years ago. All five films in this race are nominated for the appropriate Best Motion Picture prize.

Who should win? “Her” or “12 Years a Slave”

Who will win? It’s hard to know without a clear frontrunner, but I’ll bet on Her over “12 Years a Slave.”
