Golden Globe Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5, missing Streep
Who’s missing? Anna Kendrick (Into the Woods), Naomi Watts (St. Vincent)

Here go the Golden Globes again – a few years ago they snubbed Melissa McCarthy for “Bridesmaids” after she got a SAG nomination and her film earned other Globe mentions. McCarthy’s latest film “St. Vincent” earned two other Globe nominations, but surprise SAG nominee Naomi Watts isn’t here. Oh well. In her place, we get Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year). I just saw the film last night – Chastain is good, but the film is even better, and it’s a shame it didn’t show up anywhere else. Meryl Streep (Into the Woods) looks like she may well be headed towards an Oscar nomination, accompanied by sure things Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game), and Emma Stone (Birdman), all of whom saw excellent showings from their films this morning.

Who will win? I think Arquette will take this.
