Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a TV Series – Comedy/Musical

The competition: Anthony Anderson’s proud patriarch (Black-ish), Aziz Ansari’s talkative dreamer (Master of None), Kevin Bacon’s adored author (I Love Dick), William H. Macy’s depraved patriarch (Shameless), and Eric McCormack’s liberal lawyer (Will and Grace).

For your information: Anderson, Ansari, and Macy have all been nominated exactly once before for these roles. McCormack was nominated five times in a row from 1999 to 2003. Bacon won for “Taking Chance” in 2009 and was previously nominated for his film work in “The River Wild.” Anderson, Ansari, and McCormack all have their shows nominated for the top prize. The last three eligible winners of this category – Gael Garcia Bernal, Jeffrey Tambor, and Andy Samberg – all aren’t here, along with last year’s winner Donald Glover.

Who should win? I couldn’t stand Bacon’s show and don’t regularly watch Anderson’s. I like McCormack and Macy but I’ll fully behind Ansari here.

Who will win? I think Ansari will win unless McCormack upsets.
