Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series

The competition: Uzo Aduba’s hyperactive inmate (Orange is the New Black), Kathy Bates’ bearded lady (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Joanne Froggatt’s loyal handmaid (Downton Abbey), Allison Janney’s zany mother (Mom), and Michelle Monaghan’s long-suffering wife (True Detective).

For your information: All these nominees are new this year, though Monaghan is the only one who is eligible for the first time. This is Bates’ seventh career Globe nomination – she has won twice – and Janney’s fifth. This is the first nomination for the other three. “Downton Abbey,” “Orange is the New Black,” and “True Detective” are nominated for their corresponding top awards.

Who should win? I haven’t seen Bates and don’t want Janney regularly but I’ll enthusiastically throw my support behind the underrated Monaghan.

Who will win? I feel like this will be Bates, but maybe Janney.
