Golden Globe Nominees: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5
Who’s missing? One Night in Miami, Minari

If I had to guess which of the films I had predicted would be left off, it certainly wouldn’t be “One Night in Miami,” but for some reason that’s absent from this list. I had predicted that this list would match the Best Motion Picture – Drama field exactly, which it did, though I didn’t think that The Father would be one of those choices. This is first time in thirty years that such a match-up has happened between the two categories. I’m happy that Promising Young Woman made the cut because it was not a sure thing, and this only helps to bolster the general awards chances, both with this group and elsewhere, for the other three, Nomadland, Mank, and The Trial of the Chicago 7. It’s the kind of boost that “Minari” could have used.

Who will win? I suspect this could be Aaron Sorkin for The Trial of the Chicago 7.
