Golden Globe Nominees: Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture

My predictions: 2/5, picking only Elba and Rylance
Who’s missing? Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Jacob Tremblay, Benicio Del Toro

So this list only ports over three nominees from yesterday’s SAG slate, but still manages to leave off Keaton and Ruffalo, a very puzzling omission given how much it seems that the film was loved, earning three top nominations today. SAG nominee Christian Bale got moved to the lead race, making room for Paul Dano (Love and Mercy), making it clear that I have to see that film as soon as I can. And I really didn’t want to have to see Sylvester Stallone (Creed) in his film, and even passed up the opportunity to do so earlier this week in the hopes that he wouldn’t be nominated. I’m ecstatic that Michael Shannon (99 Homes) is here, and even though he wasn’t really supporting, it’s hardly a big deal since he was so good. Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation) and Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies), who are also both nominated for their TV work in the same category, are the sole representatives of their films.

Who will win? I’m not sure there is a frontrunner, but I’ll say Dano for now.
