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

My predictions: 4/5, missing Rockwell
Who’s missing? Sam Elliott (A Star is Born), Russell Crowe (Boy Erased), Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther)

I’m genuinely surprised to see Sam Rockwell (Vice) included after seeing the film yesterday and finding his role to be very minor. I guess it’s hard not to honor last year’s winner, though he did get in at the expense of Elliott, whose film scored everywhere else it was expected to. Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman) wasn’t the only element of his film to get in, even though it was looking that way. Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) joins his costar Melissa McCarthy, while Timothée Chalamet (Beautiful Boy) got in all on his own. And then there’s Mahershala Ali (Green Book), whose film did very well overall.

Who will win? I feel like Ali is far enough ahead here.
