Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock: His Last Vow), Richard Jenkins (Olive Kitteridge)

Unlike SAG yesterday, this category played out exactly as I thought it would, and that means I’ve seen four of the nominees. Cumberbatch, who did still score a film nomination, is nowhere to be found, but his “Sherlock” costar Martin Freeman (Fargo) did score a bid along with Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo). Both Matthew McConaughey (True Detective) and Woody Harrelson (True Detective) are here, and Michelle Monaghan even scored a supporting nomination for her terrific work opposite them. Mark Ruffalo (The Normal Heart) is the fifth nominee, and Matt Bomer is his only costar to score an accompanying nod.

Who will win? I’d guess McConaughey, but who knows with four nominees from two projects.
