Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie

The competition: Idris Elba (Luther), Oscar Isaac (Show Me a Hero), David Oyelowo (Nightingale), Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall), Patrick Wilson (Fargo)

For your information: This category’s name is important, since Elba has actually been nominated for this same role here three times before. Wilson was nominated in 2003 for “Angels in America,” and two other stars from the last iteration of his series were recognized here last year. Isaac and Oyelowo have both been nominated once before for film work. Both Elba and Rylance, who is a first-time Globe nominee this year, are also nominated for in the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture category. “Fargo” and “Wolf Hall” are both recognized as nominees for Best Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie.

Who should win? I’ve only seen Wilson’s work, but he’s great.

Who will win? I’m not sure, but I think it will be Oyelowo.
