Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 4/5, missing Waltz
Who’s missing? James Corden (Into the Woods), Chris Rock (Top Five)

This category doesn’t bring too many surprises other than the inclusion of Christoph Waltz (Big Eyes), who many thought would be considered supporting despite the fact that his two Golden Globe wins were in the supporting race while many perceive them to have been lead performances. Michael Keaton (Birdman) is the only likely crossover to the Oscars in this category, though I’d watch out for Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel), whose film showed up in more places than expected today. Bill Murray (St. Vincent) and Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) round out the field.

Who will win? Definitely Keaton.
