Emily Blunt (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen)
Judi Dench (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)
Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook)
Maggie Smith (Quartet)
Of the above list, Meryl is probably in second or third place as far as likelihood of winning. I'd be amazed if Jennifer Lawrence didn't take this handily, although HFPA historically loves Meryl, as this is is 27th nomination overall (a record of course). The Golden Globe ceremony will be held on Sunday, January 13. The full list of nominees can be seen here.
