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

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Alison Brie (GLOW), Debra Messing (Will and Grace), Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek)

Unlike the corresponding actor category, this race had four out of five nominees still eligible, and three of them are off the list in favor of three freshman nominees, who are all actually here without their shows being nominated for the top award: Kirsten Dunst (On Becoming a God in Central Florida), Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll), and Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), whose inclusion here excites me most. It’s a no-brainer that Emmy winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) made the cut, which is great, and she joins the two-time defending champ Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).

Who will win? Given that none on the newbies got their shows nominated, I think this goes to Waller-Bridge without much trouble.
