Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 2/5
Who’s missing? Cristin Milioti (Palm Springs), Rashida Jones (On the Rocks), Meryl Streep (The Prom), Meryl Streep (Let Them All Talk)

There are only six films overall that I haven’t seen that earned nominations today, and a full half of them are in this category. This race always throws in a few startling nominees, and that’s definitely the case with Kate Hudson (Music), whose film also earned a nod in the top category, and Rosamund Pike (I Care a Lot). Both those and Michelle Pfeiffer (French Exit) are even more interesting as picks since none of them have come out yet. I’m disappointed that Milioti didn’t make the cut, though at least her film and costar Andy Samberg did. It’s strange that two opportunities to honor Meryl Streep were passed up, and instead we get relative newcomers like Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) and double nominee Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma), a film I still need to see and will now make time to watch. More thoughts when I’ve seen at least half the category!

Who will win? Without having seen much, I’ll pick Bakalova.
