Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 4/5, picking Kazan over Mirren
Who’s missing? Zoe Kazan, Emma Watson, Michelle Williams

So much for Kazan showing up when her film got shut out entirely, but I was right that Watson wouldn’t make the cut. The surprise was Helen Mirren (The Leisure Seeker), who I guess I should have expected though I hadn’t heard enough about her being a contender. I haven’t seen the film, and I also haven’t seen Judi Dench (Victoria and Abdul) in hers. I’m relieved that Emma Stone (Battle of the Sexes) made it in even though her film isn’t going over as well as I thought it would. The other two are the other real Oscar contenders, whose films scored four and three nominations, respectively: Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya).

Who will win? It might be Robbie, but I think Ronan will take it.
