Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, missing Kidman and Pike
Who’s missing? Yalitza Aparicio (Roma), Viola Davis (Widows), Julia Roberts (Ben is Back), Natalie Portman (Vox Lux)

This category isn’t too surprising, though it would have been an easy place to reward Aparicio, who may now have to wait for the Oscars after her film scored an impressive four nominations. Contrary to popular worries, Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) made the cut, which helps to cement her Oscar potential. Rosamund Pike (A Private War) wasn’t as expected, and the same goes for Nicole Kidman (Destroyer), whose film I look forward to seeing next week. Glenn Close (The Wife) is still a very strong contender, facing off against Lady Gaga (A Star is Born), whose film is best represented among those in this category.

Who will win? I can’t see why Gaga wouldn’t win.
