Golden Globe Musings: Best Motion Picture – Drama

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced in just a few weeks, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anything important. A reminder that the Globes are wildly unpredictable and that it is still a bit early to gauge the reception or awards potential of a number of the so-called “contenders” at this point.

Last year’s nominees:
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Manchester by the Sea

The frontrunners in this race seem pretty clear - Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, The Post, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Call Me By Your Name. But there are a number of others that could bounce one or several of them out, including Mudbound, Darkest Hour, Phantom Thread, and a movie that I think will go the distance but I’m not sure will be chosen by this group: The Florida Project.

Current predictions:
Call Me By Your Name
Darkest Hour
The Post
The Shape of Water
