Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a TV Series – Drama

My predictions: 2/5, picking only Malek and Odenkirk
Who’s missing? Anthony Hopkins, Wagner Moura, Kevin Spacey, Kiefer Sutherland

This is a really interesting and rare category, since it contains five men whose shows aren’t nominated for the top prize. Three nominees are back from last year, all of which I’m excited about: Rami Malek (Mr. Robot), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan). Globe voters decided to embrace the actors but not the show with Matthew Rhys (The Americans). And then we have the one new pick, and a fantastic one: Billy Bob Thornton (Goliath). This is a cool list, and an interesting statistic that I’ll have to research in terms of its matchup with Best TV Series – Drama.

Who will win? Malek didn’t win last year, so he might, but I think it will be Thornton.
