Golden Globe Predictions: Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie

I’ve been predicting the Golden Globe nominations for more than fifteen years, and even if the group doesn’t have the same industry relevance as in the past, it’s still helpful and fun to see what shows and performances get honored. Here’s my assessment of the contenders in this category.

Last year’s nominees:
Paul Bettany (WandaVision)
Oscar Isaac (Scenes from a Marriage)
Michael Keaton (Dopesick)
Ewan McGregor (Halston)
Tahar Rahim (The Serpent)

Four of the six Emmy nominees from this past year are eligible, and one of the other two, Oscar Isaac (Moon Knight), has another role that could put him in contention again. Colin Firth (The Staircase), Andrew Garfield (Under the Banner of Heaven), Sebastian Stan (Pam and Tommy), and Himesh Patel (Station Eleven) will surely face competition from more recent contenders, like Evan Peters (Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story), Steve Carell (The Patient), Domhnall Gleeson (The Patient), Ben Whishaw (This Is Going to Hurt), Jesse Eisenberg (Fleishman is in Trouble), Michael Shannon (George and Tammy), Kumail Nanjiani (Welcome to Chippendales), Chaske Spencer (The English), and Daniel Radcliffe (Weird: The Al Yankovic Story). Other options who didn’t get Emmy nods include Jared Leto (WeCrashed), Ben Foster (The Survivor), Sean Penn (Gaslit), Miles Teller (The Offer), and Samuel L. Jackson (The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey).

Current predictions:
Steve Carell (The Patient)
Colin Firth (The Staircase)
Andrew Garfield (Under the Banner of Heaven)
Evan Peters (Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story)
Sebastian Stan (Pam and Tommy)
