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

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced soon, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anyone important. A reminder that last year’s nominees mean zilch at the Globes and that the race is almost entirely unpredictable.

Last year’s nominees:
Amy Adams (Sharp Objects)
Patricia Arquette (Escape at Dannemora)
Connie Britton (Dirty John)
Laura Dern (The Tale)
Regina King (Seven Seconds)

I don’t always predict this category in such detail, but given that, once again, I’ve seen a lot of the first episodes of these limited series and actors, I figured it was worth writing about it. Emmy nominees Michelle Williams (Fosse/Verdon), Joey King (The Act), and Niecy Nash (When They See Us) are likely to be included. Helen Mirren (Catherine the Great) seems like a sure thing. I’m pulling for Merritt Wever (Unbelievable), and I’d love to see her costar Kaitlyn Dever (Unbelievable) also nominated. Kathryn Hahn (Mrs. Fletcher) would be a great choice too. Miley Cyrus (Black Mirror), Renee Zellweger (What/If), and Kerry Washington (American Son) could also show up, as could any number of others I’m not considering.

Current predictions:
Kathryn Hahn (Mrs. Fletcher)
Joey King (The Act)
Helen Mirren (Catherine the Great)
Merritt Wever (Unbelievable)
Michelle Williams (Fosse/Verdon)
