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

My predictions: 4/5, missing Britton
Who’s missing? Emma Stone (Maniac), Florence Pugh (The Little Drummer Girl)

I’ve sampled every one of these performances, though the only one I’ve seen in its entirety is Laura Dern (The Tale) when her film played at Sundance before it was acquired by HBO. I’m glad she made the cut since the project doesn’t seem to be getting nearly enough attention. Both Amy Adams (Sharp Objects) and Regina King (Seven Seconds) are double nominees this year with matching bids in the film best supporting actress category, and while both movies did well, Adams’ miniseries had a much better showing than King’s. Patricia Arquette (Escape at Dannemora) made the cut, as did a more surprising and equally recent entry, Connie Britton (Dirty John), whose performance didn’t impress me nearly as much. It’s sad not see Stone here for a good performance I’ve been enjoying.

Who will win? These are all powerhouse contenders. My bet right now is on Adams with Arquette having a shot to upset.
