Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “Our Brand Is Crisis” over “Spy” and “Trainwreck”
What’s missing? Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Our Brand Is Crisis, Grandma, The Lady in the Van

What we have here are two films that experienced major SAG shutouts but rebounded today: The Martian and Joy, both from experienced directors with plenty of awards nominations in the past. The Big Short earned a screenplay nomination and two acting bids, so it may be a serious contender. Rounding out the list we have two lower-brow comedies, Spy and Trainwreck, both of which are available on DVD and I should probably plan to see soon to offer more insight on this category!

What will win? I think it will be The Martian.
