Golden Globe Nominees: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

My predictions: 3/5, missing “Parasite” and “The Two Popes”
Who’s missing? Jojo Rabbit, The Farewell, Little Women, Bombshell

This lineup is pretty expected, even if I didn’t quite predict it. Parasite, one of my favorite films of the year, becomes the third-ever and second consecutive foreign film nominated here (at least based on my research last year). A bid here added to a better-than-expected haul for The Two Popes, which now up their Oscar chances considerably. It’s no surprise that Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and The Irishman all scored here. These are some solid scripts, even if I don’t love Tarantino’s all that much.

Who will win? I think this goes to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
