Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

My predictions: 3/5, picking Hunter and Leo over Blige and Chau
Who’s missing? Holly Hunter, Melissa Leo, Michelle Pfeiffer

I’m surprised that Holly Hunter is here even though she wasn’t the standout of her completely shut-out movie for me, and I’m sadder about Melissa Leo’s omission. It’s interesting that both Mary J. Blige (Mudbound) and Hong Chau (Downsizing) both made it in despite their films being ignored elsewhere (Blige’s managed a song nomination). I haven’t seen the latter, so I can’t comment on it yet. Expected frontrunners Allison Janney (I, Tonya) and Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird) are both here, as is a great representative from the most-nominated film, Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water).

Who will win? I think that Metcalf should be able to take it, but this is a competitive category.
