Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a TV Series

My predictions: 2/5, picking only Harris and Stonestreet
Who’s missing? Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Sam Waterston (The Newsroom)

This category is always unpredictable, and I’m happy to see some fun inclusions. After being snubbed last year, Mandy Patinkin (Homeland) is a welcome presence, especially considering the fact that he’s been great in season two of the Showtime series. Max Greenfield (New Girl) is a great choice too, and it’s nice to see him even with his series, nominated last year, snubbed in the top race. Danny Huston (Magic City) is a surprising selection, but, having seen the first two episodes of the show, he’s far and away the best thing about it, and it’s refreshing to see a performer nominated not just for his name or his series. Two-time Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) is back with his third consecutive nomination, and he’s joined by Ed Harris (Game Change), as the lone non-series representative. It’s certainly an eclectic category.

Who could win? Difficult to say – maybe Patinkin?
