Golden Globe Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series

My predictions: 3/5, picking Janney and Smart over Froggatt and Light
Who’s missing? Allison Janney, Jean Smart

This is a cool list, one singling out performers on shows who are clearly doing good work. Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black) and Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) are back again, though I’m not sure they both need to be nominated year after year. Regina King (American Crime) won an Emmy for her work, and while I would have liked to see her here for “The Leftovers” instead, this is still something. I haven’t yet seen season two of her show, so I can’t speak to whether Judith Light (Transparent) really is the deserving supporting actress from her show. And one nominee I’m proud to have predicted - Maura Tierney (The Affair) - made the cut for a superb supporting performance after the other three nominations her show got last year all failed to repeat.

Who will win? I think this will be Aduba since she has yet to win a Globe.
