Golden Globe Nominees: Best Director – Motion Picture

My predictions: 3/5, picking Tarantino and Boyle over Haynes and Miller
Who’s missing? Quentin Tarantino, Danny Boyle, Lenny Abrahamson

The two films I picked that didn’t get in here were recognized for their screenplays, while the two that made the cut over them weren’t, so maybe I was just predicting the wrong race. Todd Haynes (Carol) and George Miller (Max Max: Fury Road) getting in show that the critics’ awards that have been handed out so far have been accurate in showing what’s most beloved this year. This is the first nomination for both of them, along with Tom McCarthy (Spotlight). This is the third nomination for Ridley Scott (The Martian), the lone comedy contender in the bunch, and the third for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (The Revenant), who lost this award last year before winning the Oscar. More on this race once I’ve seen the remaining two films.

Who will win? I think it may well be Miller.
