Golden Globe Musings: Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a TV Series


Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced soon, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anyone important. A reminder that last year’s nominees mean zilch at the Globes and that the race is almost entirely unpredictable.

Last year’s nominees:
David Harbour (Stranger Things)
Alfred Molina (Feud: Bette and Joan)
Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies)
Christian Slater (Mr. Robot)
David Thewlis (Fargo)

New contenders:
Alan Arkin (The Kominsky Method)
Ricky Martin (The Assassination of Gianni Versace)
Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace)
Henry Winkler (Barry)
Ben Whishaw (A Very English Scandal)

Potential first-time nominees:
Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale)
Marc Maron (GLOW)
Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta)
Tony Shalhoub (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)

Past nominees:
Sean Hayes (Will and Grace)

We’re looking at an entirely fresh slate this year, with both Harbour and Slater’s shows taking 2017 off. Only one Emmy winner from the three feeder categories is a contender, and Winkler is pretty much a sure thing. A handful of Emmy- and SAG-honored men passed over by the Globes last time might show up, as could a few miniseries faces. It’s near impossible to know who will show up here – these are just my best guesses.

Current predictions:
Alan Arkin (The Kominsky Method)
Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale)
Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace)
Ben Whishaw (A Very English Scandal)
Henry Winkler (Barry)
