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

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Sarah Silverman, Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Charlotte Rampling

This category was my only 100% race today, and it’s a good thing considering yesterday’s shocking surprises. Both Rooney Mara (Carol) and Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) got successfully promoted from the supporting race to here, though I got confused when I heard Vikander’s name called in the supporting race during the choppy livestream of the nominations, but that’s just because she was nominated there for “Ex Machina.” She could well be a double Oscar nominee if she stays in these categories. Cate Blanchett (Carol) is here as expected, and Brie Larson (Room) saw her film get a Best Motion Picture – Drama nomination while the fifth nominee, Saiorse Ronan (Brooklyn), is the sole representative of her film today. I’m planning to see “The Danish Girl” tonight, and then I’ll have seen this entire category.

Who will win? I think Larson unless one of the “Carol” women takes it.
