Golden Globe Nominations: Best Supporting Actress

My predictions: 3/5, missing returning nominee Rachel Griffiths and Melissa George
Who’s missing? This category isn’t significant in relation to the Emmys, so the only omissions worth noting are a lack of love for special events “A Raisin in the Sun” and “House of Saddam.”

Some great choices here in terms of Eileen Atkins (Cranford) and Laura Dern (Recount). Griffiths isn’t a big surprise, I guess she’ll just keep on coming back until she doesn’t. The inclusion of the two “In Treatment” women is nice, though I wish that my preferred actresses Mia Wasikowska and Michelle Forbes had gotten in over Dianne Wiest and the so-so Melissa George, whose nomination comes as a huge shock (the only TV inclusion that truly surprised me, save for Kevin Connolly of “Entourage”).

Who will win? I would go with Laura Dern, but Eileen Atkins won the Emmy, so I’m wary of predicting Dern again, but for the moment, I think I will.
