Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a TV Series – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, missing Balfe and Russell
Who’s missing? Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Deuce)

There’s not much consistency with the Globes, bringing back Caitriona Balfe (Outlander) for the fourth year in a row and inviting Keri Russell (The Americans) back for one last shot after a previous nomination while omitting Wright for the final year of her show. I’m disappointed that Comer didn’t join costar and Globes cohost Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) since I think she’s the strongest part of her show, and this seemed like the place that she could get in. Julia Roberts (Homecoming) made the cut, as expected, joining last year’s winner Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale).

Who will win? It might be Oh, who will already be up on stage all night, but my money is on Roberts.
