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

The competition: Caitriona Balfe’s time traveler (Outlander), Claire Foy’s ruler (The Crown), Maggie Gyllenhaal’s innovative prostitute (The Deuce), Katherine Langford’s suicidal teenager (13 Reasons Why), and Elisabeth Moss’ unwilling surrogate (The Handmaid’s Tale).

For your information: Foy was last year’s champion, and she’s back along with Balfe, earning her third consecutive nomination. Moss was nominated previously in this category for “Mad Men” and she won for “Top of the Lake” in 2013. Gyllenhaal has two previous film nominations and a win for “The Honourable Woman” in 2014. This is Langford’s first nomination. Only Foy and Moss have their shows nominated for the top prize.

Who should win? I don’t watch Balfe’s show and didn’t watch past the start of Gyllenhaal’s or Langford’s shows, but I like Moss a lot.

Who will win? Given Globe voters’ enthusiasm for new series, I think Moss is a sure thing.
