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

The competition: Annette Bening’s creative mother (20th Century Women), Lily Collins’ beauty queen (Rules Don’t Apply), Hailee Steinfeld’s troubled teenager (The Edge of Seventeen), Meryl Streep’s ear-piercing socialite (Florence Foster Jenkins), and Emma Stone’s aspiring actress (La La Land).

For your information: Streep is a record holder with thirty career nominations and eight wins, including two wins in this category. She’s also receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award this year. This is Bening’s eighth nomination, and she also has two wins in this category. Stone has been nominated twice before, and this is the first nomination for both Collins and Steinfeld. “20th Century Women,” “Florence Foster Jenkins,” and “La La Land” are all nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical.

Who should win? I didn’t have a chance to see Collins or Steinfeld’s films, but I’d vote for Stone out of the rest.

Who will win? This is a very competitive category where Stone, Bening, and Streep could all win. I’ll give the edge to the young star of the buzziest film.
