Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 4/5, picking Blunt over Huppert
Who’s missing? Emily Blunt

This category didn’t offer any surprises. I bet against Isabelle Huppert (Elle), whose film also got nominated for Best Foreign Film, thinking she would stage an Oscar comeback later, but I’m glad to see she made it in now. Amy Adams (Arrival) made the cut for the much better film and performance despite her other movie earning three nominations. Natalie Portman (Jackie) is still the frontrunner even though the movie isn’t nominated elsewhere, and Ruth Negga (Loving), whose film didn’t do that well with the nominations, and Jessica Chastain (Miss Sloane), representing her film’s only nomination, round out the list.

Who will win? It will be Portman.
