Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a TV Series – Drama

The competition: Caitriona Balfe’s time-traveling nurse (Outlander), Viola Davis’ fearsome legal educator (How to Get Away with Murder), Eva Green’s monster-fighting heroine (Penny Dreadful), Taraji P. Henson’s music magnate (Empire), and Robin Wright (House of Cards).

For your information: This is the second consecutive nomination for Davis, and the third for Wright, who won in 2013. Balfe, Green, and Henson are first-time Globe nominees. Last year’s winner, Ruth Wilson, is not nominated this year despite being eligible. Balfe and Henson’s shows are both nominated for Best TV Series – Drama. Unlike the corresponding actor field, this category doesn’t always favor freshmen winners.

Who should win? I actually watch just one of these shows – Wright’s – so I can’t offer an informed opinion here!

Who will win? I think Henson will triumph, but I don’t know much here!
