Golden Globe Nominees: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5, missing “The Grand Budapest Hotel” Who’s missing? Foxcatcher, Selma, The Theory of Everything

I thought this category was my best bet, and I was close to right. What we end up having is Gone Girl earning the bizarre distinction of being recognizing for writing and directing but not in the top race, while “Foxcatcher” ends up only in Best Motion Picture – Drama. The surprise here was The Grand Budapest Hotel, which Globe voters clearly loved, giving it a directing nomination too. The other three are the films we’ll be hearing about all awards season: Birdman, Boyhood, and The Imitation Game.

Who will win? I’ll go out on a limb and say Gone Girl.
