Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture - Drama

My predictions: 4/5, picking “Darkest Hour” over “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”
Who’s missing? Darkest Hour, The Florida Project, Mudbound, Phantom Thread

The results of this category don’t mean much other than to confirm that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is indeed a strong awards contender, whereas “Darkest Hour,” which was the type of film Globe voters like, may not make much of a splash aside from its lead star. Call Me By Your Name is, someone unexpectedly, the only film on this list that didn’t earn a Best Director bid, and Dunkirk is the only other one with no screenplay mention. The Shape of Water scored the most bids and The Post also did well. The latter is the only best picture nominee in comedy or drama that I haven’t seen - hoping to see it soon so I can comment.

Who will win? I think either The Post or “The Shape of Water.”
