BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY OR MUSICAL: Judi Dench, 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'
Everybody loves a comedy about old people and almost everybody loves Dame Judi Dench. The charming and talented Brit – most recognized these days for her role as “M” in the 007 franchise – gives a wonderfully witty performance in this film about getting old gracefully. The equally talented dramatic thespian has been nominated for a Golden Globe previously for her work in 'Shakespeare in Love', 'Chocolat' and 'Iris'. Dench won the statue in 1998 for her performance in 'Mrs. Brown' and again in 2001 for the TV mini-series, 'The Last of the Blonde Bombshells'. Chances of winning: She’s Probably Won Enough.
