Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Mini-Series/TV Movie

The competition: Adam Beach (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee), Ernest Borgnine (A Grandpa for Christmas), James Nesbitt (Jekyll), Jim Broadbent (Longford), and Jason Isaacs (The State Within).
For your information: This is the first nomination for Beach, Isaacs, and Nesbitt. Broadbent has two previous nominations and one win. Borgnine only has one previous nomination (from 1955!) which we won.
Who should win: I did not watch “A Grandpa for Christmas” (why would I?) or “Jekyll”, but out of the other three, Broadbent deserves this, no contest, for his completely absorbed portrayal of Lord Longford. Isaacs was great too, and it would be nice to see him pick up an award.
Who will win: It should be Broadbent, but the Globes often like BBC (Nesbitt, Isaacs).
