Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a TV Series

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), Betty Gilpin (GLOW), Alexis Bledel (The Handmaid’s Tale)

This was a very expected list, as evidenced by my perfect score here. I’m very happy to see Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale) deservedly recognized over last year’s nominated costar Dowd (who is also good, of course) for her standout season two work. It’s also great to see Emmy winner Thandie Newton (Westworld) back, representing her show, which is absent in all other categories. She’s joined by the comedy Emmy winner Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), nominated for the second season of her show that just premiered yesterday and which I haven’t had a chance to start yet. Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects) and Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) round out the list for miniseries I stopped watching after episode one.

Who will win? It’s hardly guaranteed in a competitive category like this, but I’m betting on Strahovski.
