Golden Globe Nominees: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5, picking “The Martian” over “The Big Short”
What’s missing? Carol, The Martian, The Revenant, Joy, Mad Max: Fury Road

This list isn’t too surprising, with comedy The Big Short, which I’m hoping to see tomorrow, taking a spot I thought would go to “The Martian,” which still had a good showing today. Room fared better than some (including me expected), earning a Best Motion Picture – Drama mention. Steve Jobs unfortunately did not, but I’m glad that it’s still here, giving Aaron Sorkin his sixth nomination. The Hateful Eight didn’t make the cut in the top race either but is here, setting Quentin Tarantino up for a possible third career Globe. Spotlight, which didn’t score as resoundingly as I and others expected, rounds out the race. I’ve only seen three of these, but the three I have are all excellently written.

What will win? Even though it’s not nominated in the top field, I’ll pick Steve Jobs right now.
