2023 Golden Globes Motion Picture Nominations

Posted on December 12, 2022

The messiest and most corrupt of all the awards shows, the Golden Globes are inexplicably back and they’re acting like they still have some sway over awards season. Let’s see who they got paid to nominate this time, shall we? The television noms are in a separate post, which you can find here.

BEST MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA

“Avatar: The Way of Water”
“Elvis”
“The Fabelmans”
“Tár”
“Top Gun: Maverick”

 

Amazing how a film that hasn’t even been released yet has been nominated. We’re going to suggest that Tár should win it, but that it will probably go to Top Gun or The Fabelmans.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA

Cate Blanchett, “Tár”
Olivia Colman, “Empire of Light”
Viola Davis, “The Woman King”
Ana de Armas, “Blonde”
Michelle Williams, “The Fabelmans”

 

Cate, of course.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE – DRAMA

Austin Butler, “Elvis”
Brendan Fraser, “The Whale”)
Hugh Jackman, “The Son”
Bill Nighy, “Living”
Jeremy Pope, “The Inspection”

 

Brendan’s the favorite for the Oscar, but he loathes the Globes and has spoken out against them repeatedly, so it seems unlikely that he’ll win, although it’s possible a trophy will be extended as an olive branch.

 

BEST MOTION PICTURE – MUSICAL OR COMEDY

“Babylon”
“The Banshees of Inisherin”
“Everything Everywhere All at Once”
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”
“Triangle of Sadness”

 

Everything Everywhere, probably.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – MUSICAL OR COMEDY

Lesley Manville, “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris”
Margot Robbie, “Babylon”
Anya Taylor-Joy, “The Menu”
Emma Thompson, “Good Luck to You, Leo Grande”
Michelle Yeoh, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”

Michelle Yeoh, probably.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE – MUSICAL OR COMEDY

Diego Calva, “Babylon”
Daniel Craig, “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”
Adam Driver, “White Noise”
Colin Farrell, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Ralph Fiennes, “The Menu”

 

We bet it’ll either go to Craig or Farrell

BEST MOTION PICTURE – ANIMATED

“Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio”
“Inu-Oh”
“Marcel the Shell with Shoes On”
“Puss in Boots: The Last Wish”
“Turning Red”

Pinocchio, probably.

BEST MOTION PICTURE – NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE (FORMERLY FOREIGN LANGUAGE)

“All Quiet on the Western Front” (Germany)
“Argentina 1985” (Argentina, US)
“Close” (Belgium)
“Decision to Leave” (South Korea)
“RRR” (India)

RRR is the most likely favorite.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN ANY MOTION PICTURE

Angela Bassett, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”
Kerry Condon, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Jamie Lee Curtis, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”
Dolly de Leon, “Triangle of Sadness”
Carey Mulligan, “She Said”

Since the Globes tend to go for crowd-pleasers, we think it’s Angela’s to win.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN ANY MOTION PICTURE

Brendan Gleeson, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Barry Keoghan, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Brad Pitt, “Babylon”
Ke Huy Quan, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”
Eddie Redmayne, “The Good Nurse”

Key Huy Quan, for the same reason.

BEST DIRECTOR – MOTION PICTURE

James Cameron, “Avatar: The Way of Water”
Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert “Everything Everywhere All at Once”
Baz Luhrmann, “Elvis”
Martin McDonagh, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Steven Spielberg, “The Fabelmans”

We’re thinking Kwan and Scheinert, just to be unexpected.

BEST SCREENPLAY – MOTION PICTURE

Todd Field, “Tár”
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”
Martin McDonagh, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Sarah Polley, “Women Talking”
Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner, “The Fabelmans”

This could honestly go any way, but we’ll say Spielberg and Kushner.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE – MOTION PICTURE

Carter Burwell, “The Banshees of Inisherin”
Alexandre Desplat, “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio”
Hildur Guðnadóttir, “Women Talking”
Justin Hurwitz, “Babylon”
John Williams, “The Fabelmans”

No thoughts on this one.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG – MOTION PICTURE

“Carolina” by Taylor Swift (“Where the Crawdads Sing”)
“Ciao Papa” by Alexandre Desplat, Roeban Katz, Guillermo del Toro (“Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio”)
“Hold My Hand” by Lady Gaga and Bloodpop (“Top Gun: Maverick”)
“Lift Me Up” by Tems, Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna and Ryan Coogler (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”)
“Naatu Naatu” by M.M. Keeravani, Chandrabose (“RRR”)

It’s anyone’s guess.
