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

The competition: Louis C.K.’s wry comedian (Louie), Don Cheadle’s soulless management consultant (House of Lies), Ricky Gervais’ kindhearted care worker (Derek), William H. Macy’s depraved patriarch (Shameless), and Jeffrey Tambor’s gender-changing father (Transparent).

For your information: The only returning nominee from last year, interestingly enough, is Cheadle, who has won once before. C.K. was nominated when he was last eligible in 2012. Gervais won this award in 2003 for “The Office” and was nominated again in 2007 for “Extras.” Macy has earned three Globe nominations in the past, and this is Tambor’s first nomination despite six previous Emmy mentions. Only “Transparent” is nominated for Best TV Series – Comedy/Musical.

Who should win? Tambor

Who will win? For a variety of reasons, I’ll go with Tambor.
