Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama

The competition: Casey Affleck’s antisocial uncle (Manchester by the Sea), Joel Edgerton’s colorblind husband, Andrew Garfield’s conscientious objector (Hacksaw Ridge), Viggo Mortensen’s eccentric patriarch (Captain Fantastic), and Denzel Washington’s traditional father (Fences).

For your information: This is Washington’s eighth career nomination, with two previous wins and the Cecil B. DeMille Award last year. This is Mortensen’s third nomination and the second for Affleck and Garfield. This is the first nomination for Edgerton. “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Manchester by the Sea” are up for Best Motion Picture – Drama.

Who should win? Affleck is clearly the best, but Washington is great too.

Who will win? Unless Washington surprises, this category belongs to Affleck.
