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

The competition: Rachel Bloom’s singing lawyer (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Jamie Lee Curtis’ college dean (Scream Queens), Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ sarcastic vice-president (Veep), Gina Rodriguez’s spunky pregnant virgin (Jane the Virgin), and Lily Tomlin’s newfound divorcée (Grace and Frankie).

For your information: Rodriguez won this award last year, and this is the fourth consecutive nomination for Louis-Dreyfus. This is Curtis’ seventh career nomination. She has won twice, including once in this category in 1989 for “Anything But Love.” Tomlin has been nominated five times previously, and is also nominated this year for her film work in “Grandma.” This is the first Globe nomination for Bloom. Only “Veep” is nominated for Best TV Series – Comedy/Musical. No star of a musical has won this award since the 1980s.

Who should win? Bloom!

Who will win? I fear it’s too optimistic, but I’m going to bet on Bloom.
