Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 3/5, picking Cheadle and Mortensen over Hill and Reynolds
Who’s missing? Don Cheadle, Robert De Niro, Michael Keaton

He got up at 5:15am to announce the nominees, but Cheadle didn’t make the cut here. Instead, we got two bizarre nominees, one predicted by others - Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) – and the other a bit more shocking, Jonah Hill (War Dogs). I’ll have to see both films to judge those performances. Viggo Mortensen ended up in the drama race, and we got three nominees that most expected. Colin Farrell (The Lobster) made it in even though his film didn’t, while Hugh Grant (Florence Foster Jenkins) was one of the four mentions for his movie, and Ryan Gosling (La La Land) saw his film clean up very nicely.

Who will win? I think Gosling is the frontrunner in a big way.
