Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight”
Who’s missing? Fences, Loving, Nocturnal Animals, Silence

I’m surprised to have done so poorly here, but I’m actually pretty pleased with the results. I haven’t seen Hacksaw Ridge, which scored a surprise Best Director bid also, and I’m intrigued to watch it now. I haven’t posted my reviews yet (next week), but I really liked Lion and Manchester by the Sea. No one is surprised about Moonlight, which was very good, and I couldn’t be more excited for what I think is definitely one of the best films of the year if not the best, Hell or High Water. What’s most interesting is that all these films are out already, with later releases like “Fences” and “Silence” omitted.

Who will win? I’m torn between Moonlight and “Manchester by the Sea,” but would give the edge to the former right now.
