Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Battle of the Sexes” and “The Big Sick” over “The Disaster Artist” and “I, Tonya”
Who’s missing? The Big Sick, Battle of the Sexes, Baby Driver, Downsizing

It’s really sad and just so puzzling to see “The Big Sick” shut out of all categories, and I’m also surprised that “Battle of the Sexes” didn’t make the cut. I did just see the two films I didn’t predict - The Disaster Artist and I, Tonya - this past weekend, and I’m fine with both being included even though they wouldn’t make my list. Get Out only scored here and for best actor, which is fine by me since I think the enthusiasm for that film was way too high. I just saw The Greatest Showman yesterday, and I know that my wife will be thrilled that it made the cut. Lady Bird is definitely the best film here, and its four nominations should indicate that. This is an interesting list - certainly some entertaining films!

Who will win? That’s a good question. I’m tempted to select Lady Bird but it could honestly be any of them.
