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

The competition: Jason Bateman’s financial advisor (Ozark), Sterling K. Brown’s loyal husband and father (This Is Us), Freddie Highmore’s autistic doctor (The Good Doctor), Bob Odenkirk’s crooked lawyer (Better Call Saul), and Liev Schreiber’s distraught fixer (Ray Donovan).

For your information: Schreiber is back for his fifth consecutive nomination, while Odenkirk scores his third. Emmy winner Brown is here for the first time for his show but was nominated last year for “American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson.” This is Bateman’s third overall citation – he won in 2004 for “Arrested Development.” This is Highmore’s first bid. Only “This Is Us” is nominated for the top prize.

Who should win? I didn’t watch much of Bateman and Highmore’s shows, so I’d say any of these are fine – I have no strong preference this season.

Who will win? Usually Globe voters like someone new and hot, so that could be Bateman, but I feel like Brown is more likely.
