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

My predictions: 3/5, missing Cheadle and Macy
Who’s missing? Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Matt LeBlanc (Episodes), Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)

Who cares if you won this award last year? Sorry, Andy Samberg, no return nomination for you. I’m happy to see William H. Macy (Shameless) finally recognized, but how much greater would it have been if Matt LeBlanc hadn’t been snubbed and the two of them could have been recognized along with the star of another show that used to air as part of an incomparable Sunday night Showtime block? I’m not sure I’d still include Don Cheadle (House of Lies), who missed out on a SAG bid yesterday, but good for him. No surprise to see Louis C.K. (Louie) back and Ricky Gervais (Derek) included for his latest project. This isn’t the first time that Jim Parsons has been left off this list, but the outright dismissal of his show is a shock. I am thrilled for Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), who, along with his show, made it into this race after failing to be recognized yesterday, signaling a huge triumph for Amazon.

Who will win? I can’t imagine it wouldn’t be Tambor.
