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

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced soon, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anyone important. A reminder that last year’s nominees mean zilch at the Globes and that the race is almost entirely unpredictable.

Last year’s nominees:
Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Honourable Woman)
Jessica Lange (American Horror Story: Freak Show)
Frances McDormand (Olive Kitteridge)
Frances O’Connor (The Missing)
Allison Tolman (Fargo)

Like last year, all I’ve seen from this race is those performers from two anthology series both in their second series. Kirsten Dunst (Fargo) is a sure thing, and Rachel McAdams (True Detective) was the best thing about her very disappointing show, so she’ll probably make the cut. Queen Latifah (Bessie) is a lock, and she may be joined by the likes of Nicole Kidman (Grace of Monaco), Angela Lansbury (Driving Miss Daisy), or Kristen Wiig (A Deadly Adoption). Felicity Huffman (American Crime) is a probable nominee, and I think that Lady Gaga (American Horror Story) would make a fun addition to this list, especially for this group.

Current predictions:
Kirsten Dunst (Fargo)
Lady Gaga (American Horror Story)
Felicity Huffman (American Crime)
Queen Latifah (Bessie)
Rachel McAdams (True Detective)
