Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a TV Series – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 4/5, missing Falco
Who’s missing? Laura Dern (Enlightened)

I’m glad to say that Emmy and SAG trends weren’t followed here, which means that we get to keep Zooey Deschanel (New Girl) and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), whose show miraculously got nominated for Best TV Series – Comedy/Musical for the first time ever, along with Lena Dunham (Girls). Though her show failed to make it into the top race again, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) is here, and a double nominee thanks to her film role in “Enough Said.” Puzzlingly, Globe voters did something they rarely do to fill the fifth slot: they went back to someone who hasn’t been nominated for two years and honored her. I’m fine with Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) being here since her show is always relatively fun to watch when I sit down for a few episodes every Emmy season.

Who will win? Probably Louis-Dreyfus since she hasn’t yet.
