Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 4/5, missing Reilly
Who’s missing? Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2), Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry to Bother You), Steve Coogan (Stan and Ollie)

I was scared off by a misconception that his film was considered a drama, but I think I would have predicted Coogan over costar John C. Reilly (Stan and Ollie) had I included one of them. Reilly is in a handful of films this year, so it’s good to see him honored for something. I’m particularly pleased that Robert Redford (The Old Man and the Gun) didn’t get snubbed since his film has been all but forgotten. Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns) stars in the one film here I haven’t seen but look forward to given its positive reception. Christian Bale (Vice) and Viggo Mortensen (Green Book) both have reason for celebration as their films did just as well as expected, if not better, across the board.

Who will win? It’s a competitive field, but I think Bale takes it.
