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

My predictions: 4/5, missing Wallis
Who’s missing? Angelina Jolie (Maleficent)

This is a fun category, and I’m glad that Jolie isn’t here since I was never really behind the classification of her role in this race. Last year’s winner Amy Adams (Big Eyes) is back despite not appearing to be an Oscar contender this year. It should be noted that this is the first Globe nomination for Quvenzhané Wallis (Annie) despite her Oscar nod for “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and it could well be appropriate for her to earn recognition without her film being nominated since it really doesn’t look good. I’ve actually seen just one nominee in this category, Helen Mirren (The Hundred-Foot Journey), and my review of that will be up soon. Julianne Moore (Maps to the Stars) is a double nominee this year, but neither of her films have played in theatres for more than a week each so far. Emily Blunt (Into the Woods) was the only actor in her film besides Meryl Streep to earn a mention. More thoughts once three of these films open on Christmas and I have the chance to see them!

Who will win? I’ll go with Adams for now.
