Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Motion Picture – Drama

The competition: Carol, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Room, Spotlight

For your information: All but “Room” are nominated for Best Director, and only “Room” and “Spotlight” and up for Best Screenplay. “Carol” has five nominations, “The Revenant” has four, “Room” and “Spotlight” each have three, and “Mad Max: Fury Road” has two. In the past ten years, only three of the winners have gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar.

Who should win? I’ve been championing “Room” and “Spotlight” as the two films everyone should see this year for awards purposes (and because they’re great). “Spotlight” is definitely my favorite of this race.

Who will win? It’s been underperforming all of awards season, but I think Spotlight has what it takes to win this award.
