The Golden Globe nominations have arrived! While the nominees start optimistically practicing their speeches, it’s time for the rest of us to predict the winners. That’s right, it’s time to answer the big question: Who should win the 2016 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama? The 2016 nominees for best actress in a drama were released on December 10, so out of the nominations, who do you think should win? These five Golden Globes best actress nominees were selected by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association from the scores of amazing performances this past year. While Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, Rooney Mara, Alicia Vikander, and Saoirse Ronan were all noteworthy in their own right, only one actress’s name can be in that little envelope.
Brie Larson is seen as a potential frontrunner by critics and oddsmakers alike for her performance in Room. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, both nominated for Carol, could take home the Golden Globe as well. Saoirse Ronan’s role as an Irish immigrant in Brooklyn has earned rave reviews. Alicia Vikander and stars opposite of Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl. Could Redmayne’s much-talked about performance help Vikander’s chances?
No category is without controversy. While many cinephiles may think Emily Blunt should have been nominated for her performance in Sicario, these are the remaining five actresses who now have the chance to take home a Golden Globe for best actress in a drama in 2016. Vote up the actress picks you believe gave a golden performance, and vote down any that you think shouldn’t even get to walk the red carpet.
