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

The competition: Colin Farrell’s single romantic (The Lobster), Ryan Gosling’s struggling pianist (La La Land), Hugh Grant’s entertainer (Florence Foster Jenkins), Jonah Hill’s arms dealer (War Dogs), and Ryan Reynolds’ crude superhero (Deadpool).

For your information: Farrell won this award in 2008 for “In Bruges.” Grant won in 1995 for “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and has been nominated twice more since then. This is Gosling’s fifth nomination and Hill’s second, with Reynolds as the lone newbie in the race. “Deadpool,” “Florence Foster Jenkins,” and “La La Land” are all nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical.

Who should win? These are all great choices – I’d vote for Gosling.

Who will win? It’s hard to know. It should be Gosling but I have a feeling it could end up being any of the rest except Hill, with Reynolds as the likeliest spoiler.
