Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Supporting Role

The competition: William Shatner’s wacky lawyer on “Boston Legal”, Ted Danson’s white-collar criminal on “Damages”, Donald Sutherland’s family patriarch on “Dirty Sexy Money”, Kevin Dillon’s faded actor on “Entourage”, Jeremy Piven’s smarmy agent on “Entourage”, and Andy Serkis’ unrepentant killer in “Longford”.
For your information: Shatner won in 2004 for “Boston Legal” but this is his first nomination since. Danson has ten previous nominations, while Sutherland has seven. Dillon and Serkis are first-time Globe nominees, while Piven has his fourth consecutive nomination in this category.
Who should win: Piven deserves a win for his unendingly amazing work on the show. Sutherland is great on “Dirty Sexy Money”, and Serkis, though he was fantastic, had a very minor role in “Longford”.
Who will win: It is between Danson and Sutherland, and Danson has multiple nominations for his show behind him. I still give the edge to Sutherland.
