Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 4/5, missing Gyllenhaal
Who’s missing? Miles Teller (Whiplash), Bradley Cooper (American Sniper)

When this category was announced, I was racking my brain to think who Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) had replaced, but then I realized that Michael Keaton was the fifth SAG nominee yesterday, and so David Oyelowo (Selma) was actually the one taking his spot as that entirely absent film made a decent showing today with four nominations. Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) made the list, and his film even managed a Best Motion Picture – Drama bid, and he joined Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), whose films did very well today.

Who will win? Probably Redmayne but maybe Oyelowo.
