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

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Zendaya (Euphoria), Regina King (Watchmen), Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies)

I’m impressed that I managed to get all of these right, though I’m kicking myself for a mistake I made on predictions site GoldDerby, where I inadvertently selected Witherspoon for “Big Little Lies” rather than the show that I knew she’d be recognized for instead. It’s a big win for Apple TV Plus’ new series with bids for both Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show) and Reese Witherspoon (The Morning Show), while Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) are both here without their costars. That’s interesting because both shows scored Best Drama Series bids, and Comer’s costar Oh won this category last year! Rounding out the list is newcomer but past Globe winner Olivia Colman (The Crown). This is definitely a good list, and I’m all about it.

Who will win? It’s a battle between Aniston and Colman, and, perhaps foolishly, I’ll give the former the edge.
