Golden Globe Musings: Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

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:
Dolemite Is My Name
Jojo Rabbit
Knives Out
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

The likeliest nominee here is Hamilton, but it’s always possible that voters will choose to ignore this curiously eligible filmed stage production. Other frontrunners include Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Palm Springs, The Prom, On the Rocks, and The King of Staten Island. I don’t have as much confidence in The Personal History of David Copperfield or Eurovision Song Contest, but they’re possible too, as are Let Them All Talk, Emma, and French Exit. I don’t think it’s likely at all, but I’d love to see a surprise appearance from The Climb here.

Current predictions:
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm
On the Rocks
Palm Springs
The Prom
