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

The competition: Laura Dern’s protective mother (Big Little Lies), Ann Dowd’s cruel enforcer (The Handmaid’s Tale), Chrissy Metz’s struggling sister (This Is Us), Michelle Pfeiffer’s loyal wife (The Wizard of Lies), and Shailene Woodley’s protective mother (Big Little Lies).

For your information: Dern has five previous nominations and three wins, all for TV work. Pfeiffer has six previous nominations and one win, all for film work. This is Metz’s second consecutive nomination and Woodley’s second overall, following a 2011 bid for “The Descendants.” This is Dowd’s first bid. Dowd defeated Metz and Dern defeated Pfeiffer and Woodley at the Emmys this past year. All but “The Wizard of Lies” are nominated for their respective top races.

Who should win? I haven’t seen Pfeiffer’s work. The others are all great, and I’d be happy if any of them won.

Who will win? I feel like Dern is likeliest, but it could be Dowd or Metz also.
