Golden Globe Musings: Best Motion Picture – Drama

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced very soon, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anything important. A reminder that the Globes are wildly unpredictable and that it is still a bit early to gauge the reception or awards potential of a number of the so-called “contenders” at this point.

Last year’s nominees:
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Revenant

There are some films that are clearly popular this year, and the Globe list is always the first test of what’s really going to hold up with only five films able to be picked. Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight are the surest things. Fences and Loving very likely, and then it’s going to be a major battle for the fifth slot. Possibilities include Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, Jackie, Lion, Nocturnal Animals, Silence, and Sully. I’m very curious to see what will make the cut.

Current predictions:
Manchester by the Sea
