Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie

My predictions: 3/5, missing Banderas and Bruhl
Who’s missing? Jonah Hill (Maniac), Benicio Del Toro (Escape at Dannemora)

I don’t usually watch miniseries or TV movies (none of which are nominated here), and the one that I’ve been following most closely recently, “Maniac,” got shut out. The other one that I invested in did much better, and I’m thrilled to see Hugh Grant (A Very English Scandal) and his show did get nominated. Like Geoffrey Rush last year, Antonio Banderas (Genius: Picasso) got in without his show nominated. The same is true for Benedict Cumberbatch (Patrick Melrose), while Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and Daniel Bruhl (The Alienist) made the cut along with their series. I’ve only watched the first episode of each of the latter three, so I can’t comment too much on the quality of the performances.

Who will win? Criss might have more buzz, but I’ll give the edge with this group to Grant.
