Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series

The competition: Uzo Aduba’s hyperactive inmate (Orange is the New Black), Joanne Froggatt’s loyal handmaid (Downton Abbey), Regina King’s Muslim defendant (American Crime), Judith Light’s Jewish mother (Transparent), and Maura Tierney’s scorned wife (The Affair).

For your information: This is the second consecutive nomination for both Froggatt, who won last year, and Aduba. This is the first nomination for King, Light, and Tierney. Aduba and King both won Emmys this past year. “American Crime,” “Orange is the New Black,” and “Transparent,” are all nominated for the corresponding top award. The last time that an actress won this award two years in a row was over thirty years ago.

Who should win? I haven’t seen King’s performance or finished this season of “Transparent,” but my enthusiastic vote in for Tierney.

Who will win? Anyone could actually win here. I’ll go with King with hopes that Tierney will triumph.
