Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a TV Series – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 3/5, picking Kemper and Schilling over Curtis and Tomlin
Who’s missing? Ellie Kemper, Taylor Schilling, Edie Falco, Lena Dunham

I guess I shouldn’t have swapped out Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie), a double nominee today, for Kemper, whose show was not embraced at all by Globe voters, which is a surprise though “30 Rock” merited only one nomination its first year. I didn’t see Jamie Lee Curtis (Scream Queens) coming, and I don’t think it’s a terribly worthy nomination. It’s good that Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) is still here while her show was dismissed from the top race, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) finally saw her show get tacked on as the sixth nominee in the Best Comedy Series race. And I could not be more excited by my favorite nominee today: Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), who is so great on her show.

Who will win? I’m going to go out on a limb and say Bloom optimistically. Her show is the only musical here…
