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

The competition: Deadpool, Florence Foster Jenkins, La La Land, Sing Street, 20th Century Women

For your information: “La La Land” is the overall nominations leader with seven bids. “Florence Foster Jenkins” follows with four, “Deadpool” and “20th Century Women” have two, and this is the only nomination for “Sing Street.” Only “La La Land” is nominated for Best Director, and it also contends for Best Screenplay. Musicals win this category frequently, most recently in 2012 with “Les Miserables.” The winner of this category has gone on to win the Oscar for Best Picture five times in the past fifty years, and I think it may happen again this year.

Who should win? This is a fine list. I think that “La La Land” is the best of the bunch, and I suspect voters will too.

Who will win? I don’t really see a scenario in which La La Land doesn’t take it.
