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

My predictions: 4/5, picking Streep over McCarthy
Who’s missing? Meryl Streep

I did pretty well here, not expecting the love for Melissa McCarthy (Spy), who this group snubbed for “Bridesmaids” before she eventually landed an Oscar nomination for the role. Her film surprisingly scored a Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical nomination, along with that of another nominee: Amy Schumer (Trainwreck), who presenter Dennis Quaid was visibly excited for given his frequent starring on her show. Jennifer Lawrence (Joy) rebounded from yesterday’s SAG snub with an okay showing for her film, which also appeared in the top category only. Lily Tomlin (Grandma) is a double nominee this year with a mention on the TV side of things for “Grace and Frankie.” Rounding out the list is Maggie Smith (The Lady in the Van), who I’m embarrassed to say is the only nominee in this race whose performance I’ve seen. Time to get on that.

Who will win? I think Lawrence will eclipse the others.
