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

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Lupita N’yongo (Us), Alfre Woodard (Clemency)

I expected to get this category entirely right, with N’yongo not managing to build enough late buzz for her film and Woodard not managing to do it either since her film hasn’t yet been released. The bigger surprise here is that this is the only major nomination from her film for Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), which I find disappointing because I just saw it and really liked it. The only actress whose film is nominated for the top prize (and actually the nominations leader overall) is Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), and she’s joined by Charlize Theron (Bombshell) and Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), both of whose films have one other nomination. Rounding out the category is predicted winner Renee Zellweger (Judy), who should be able to do so even with no other bids for her film. I’m fine with this list even if I’d add in a few other worthwhile performances.

Who will win? I think Zellweger takes this without much issue.
