Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Hateful Eight” and “Steve Jobs” over “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Room”
What’s missing? The Hateful Eight, Steve Jobs, The Danish Girl, Trumbo

This list makes a lot of sense given what critics have so far selected as their favorites. The Revenant is the only one that isn’t out yet, but clearly it’s a favorite. “The Hateful Eight” may not have seen by enough people. Instead, we get a strange pick from earlier in the year, Mad Max: Fury Road, that I’m going to have to make time to see and which seems like it’s headed for Oscar in a big way. Spotlight was the frontrunner, but I’m not so sure about that anymore. Carol is picking up a lot of steam, and I’m happy to see Room included here.

What will win? I think it will still end up being Spotlight.
