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

The competition: Amy Adams’ linguist (Arrival), Jessica Chastain’s lobbyist (Miss Sloane), Isabelle Huppert’s video game designer (Elle), Ruth Negga’s devoted wife (Loving), and Natalie Portman’s first lady (Jackie).

For your information: This is the seventh nomination for Adams, who won back-to-back trophies in 2014 and 2015. This is the fourth nomination for Portman, who picked up trophies for “Black Swan” and “Closer.” This is the fourth nomination for Chastain, who won in 2012 for “Zero Dark Thirty.” This is the first nomination for both Huppert and Negga. None of these movies are up for Best Motion Picture – Drama, but “Elle” is contending for Best Foreign Film.

Who should win? I haven’t seen Chastain’s performance. I’m totally behind Adams and Huppert though I doubt either will win.

Who will win? I think that Portman is a lock.
