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

The competition: Pamela Adlon’s strong-willed mother (Better Things), Alison Brie’s wrestler-actress (GLOW), Rachel Brosnahan’s chatty comedienne (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Issa Rae (Insecure), and Frankie Shaw’s single mom (SMILF).

For your information: There’s only one nominee back from last year, and that’s Rae, here for the second season of her show along with new addition Adlon. Brie, Brosnahan, and Shaw all earn their first Globe nominations for their freshmen series. Only Brosnahan and Shaw’s shows are up for the top prize. The last three eligible winners in this category – Tracee Ellis Ross, Rachel Bloom, and Gina Rodriguez – all aren’t here.

Who should win? I didn’t watch more than an episode of Brie’s show, but I like all these choices. I’d probably vote for Rae or Brosnahan.

Who will win? Globe voters usually like new things, and I feel like Brie or Shaw could be popular but Brosnahan is likeliest.
