Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actress in a TV Series – Comedy/Musical

My predictions: 3/5, missing Bergen and Messing
Who’s missing? Issa Rae (Insecure), Maya Rudolph (Forever), Jennifer Garner (Camping)

This is the ninth nomination for Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown) and the seventh for Debra Messing (Will and Grace) for these roles, though the last time either of them were mentioned for them was in 1995 and 2005, respectively. Bergen, whose show doesn’t look to be continuing, previously won twice, while it’s interesting to see Messing honored here after Eric McCormack was last year, Sean Hayes was chosen by SAG, and Megan Mullally was Emmy-nominated. No one seems to want more than one actor from the show! I couldn’t be more ecstatic about Kristen Bell (The Good Place), earning her very first Globe nomination for the recently-renewed NBC comedy. Last year’s winner Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and another nominee, Alison Brie (GLOW), are also back, leaving this category freshman-free, which is bad news for Rudolph and Garner, neither of whom I was rooting for. And Rae missing out isn’t much of a surprise this far into her show’s run.

Who will win? I don’t see Bergen winning, and Bell would be a wonderful shock, so I think Brosnahan repeats.
