Golden Globe Musings: Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced shortly, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anything important. A reminder that the Globes are wildly unpredictable and that, especially this year, it’s hard to know which films and performances will end up being honored.

Last year’s nominees:
Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell)
Annette Bening (The Report)
Laura Dern (Marriage Story)
Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers)
Margot Robbie (Bombshell)

The main critics’ honoree, Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), is competing as a comedy lead actress, which opens this category up a bit more. Frontrunners include Amanda Seyfried (Mank), Olivia Colman (The Father), Ellen Burstyn (Pieces of a Woman), Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy), and Youn Yuh-jung (Minari). Other possibilities are Saoirse Ronan (Ammonite), Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Helena Zengel (News of the World), and Talia Ryder (Never Rarely Sometimes Always).

Current predictions:
Ellen Burstyn (Pieces of a Woman)
Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy)
Olivia Colman (The Father)
Saoirse Ronan (Ammonite)
Amanda Seyfried (Mank)
