Golden Globe Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Comedy or Drama Series

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:
Jennifer Coolidge (The White Lotus)
Kaitlyn Dever (Dopesick)
Andie MacDowell (Maid
Sarah Snook (Succession)
Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso)

This category is newly focused on just comedy and drama without limited series or TV movie contenders, which is still a blend of two very different fields. Julia Garner (Ozark), last year’s Emmy winner, was nominated here the last time she was eligible, and Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Thandiwe Newton (Westworld), and Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale) are past nominees who could easily return. From the corresponding Emmy fields, watch out for Sheryl Lee Ralph (Abbott Elementary), Janelle James (Abbott Elementary), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), Patricia Arquette (Severance), and Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria). New contenders include Elizabeth Debicki (The Crown), Lesley Manville (The Crown), Olivia Cooke (House of the Dragon), Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon), Christine Baranski (The Gilded Age), and Denise Gough (Andor), and it’s always possible that Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), or Sarah Goldberg (Barry) could earn their first nominations. She was nominated in the leading category last year, and it’s likely Hannah Einbinder (Hacks) will stay there rather get transplanted to this field.

Current predictions:
Patricia Arquette (Severance)
Olivia Cooke (House of the Dragon)
Elizabeth Debicki (The Crown)
Lesley Manville (The Crown)
Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul)
