Golden Globe Nominees: Best Motion Picture – Drama

My predictions: 4/5
Who’s missing? One Night in Miami, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, News of the World

This category didn’t offer up much in the way of surprises, with The Father being the only film to show up here without a corresponding director nomination. The film that missed out as a result was “One Night in Miami,” which still scored three nominations, while “Da 5 Bloods,” which was predicted by many, got shut out entirely. I don’t know if that will continue to be the case with SAG and the Oscars, but I’d say we have firm frontrunners in the other four. I’m personally very happy since my three favorite films of the year - Promising Young Woman, The Trial of the Chicago 7, and Mank - are all here. I also like both “The Father” and Nomadland, so this is a pretty solid list. They’re also all nominations leaders, the only films to score four or more bids. It will be interesting to see what wins here because I’m not sure that any one film is particularly ahead of the rest.

Who will win? I’m going to predict The Trial of the Chicago 7 for now.
