Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

The competition: Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Israeli businesswoman (The Honourable Woman), Jessica Lange’s circus leader (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Frances McDormand’s retired schoolteacher (Olive Kitteridge), Frances O’Connor’s grieving mother (The Missing), and Allison Tolman’s eager deputy (Fargo).

For your information: This is Lange’s third consecutive nomination and her seventh overall in this category. O’Connor was nominated back in 2000. Gyllenhaal and McDormand have both been nominated in the film races before, two and four times, respectively. “Fargo,” “Olive Kitteridge,” and “The Missing” are also nominated for Best Limited Series or TV Movie.

Who should win? I’ve only watched one hour of Gyllenhaal’s series and all of Tolman’s excellent work.

Who will win? I’ll defer to the reputation of McDormand for my prediction here.
