Golden Globe Predictions: Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

I’ve been predicting the Golden Globe nominations for more than fifteen years, and even if the group doesn’t have the same industry relevance as in the past, it’s still helpful and fun to see what films and performances get honored. Here’s my assessment of the contenders in this category.

Last year’s nominees:
Don’t Look Up
Licorice Pizza
tick, tick…BOOM!
West Side Story

Two presumed Oscar frontrunners for Best Picture are also the likely leaders here, Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Banshees of Inisherin. It’s probable that sequel Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story will join its original as a nominee in this category, and Babylon feels like a good bet even if not everyone loves it. For the fifth slot, The Menu, Bros, and Triangle of Sadness seem likeliest. Other hopefuls include Cha Cha Real Smooth, White Noise, Spirited, Catherine Called Birdy, Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, Nope, Hustle, Amsterdam, Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul, A Man Called Otto, Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, and, presuming they’re eligible here, Bodies Bodies Bodies or Bullet Train. Watch out also for two international features benefiting from being able to compete here this year: Bardo and RRR.

Current predictions:
The Banshees of Inisherin
Everything Everywhere All at Once
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story
The Menu
