TV Golden Globes 2015: Who Should Win

Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie:

 

Uzo Aduba: Orange is the New Black

Kathy Bates: American Horror Story: Freak Show

Joanne Froggatt: Downton Abbey

Allison Janney:  Mom

Michelle Monaghan: True Detective

 

Who Should Win: Uzo Aduba

 

Uzo Aduba was amazing in Season One of Orange is the New Black but absolutely stunning in Season Two. Her character went through the ringer finding love in all the wrong places and she deserves this Golden Globe. My second pick would go to Joanne Froggatt but I don’t actually see that happening. Besides Maggie Smith, the HFPA hasn’t given a lot of love to Downton Abbey.

But honestly, I think the race is between Kathy Bates or Allison Janney. They are award show legends who have never really had a chance to go up against each other in the past.

 

Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie:

 

Matt Bomer: The Normal Heart

Alan Cumming: The Good Wife

Colin Hanks: Fargo

Bill Murray: Oliver Kitteridge

Jon Voight: Ray Donovan

 

Who Should Win: Matt Bomer

 

This is absolutely no offense to Colin Hanks at all who was amazingly brilliant in Fargo but Matt Bomer really did an excellent performance in The Normal Heart that no one can touch. Though there are some heavy hitters in this category, I feel confident that Matt Bomer will take it (though I might be secretly rooting for the younger Hanks).

 

Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series

 

Lena Dunham: Girls

Edie Falco: Nurse Jackie

Julia-Louis Dreyfus: Veep

Gina Rodriquez: Jane the Virgin

Taylor Schilling: Orange is the New Black

 

Who Should Win: Amy wasn’t nominated…….I don’t care.

 

Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Series

 

Louis CK: Louie

Don Cheadle: House of Lies

Ricky Gervais: Derek

William H. Macy: Shameless

Jeffrey Tambor: Transparent

 

Who Should Win: Give Louis CK a Globe!!!

 

By the way, Jeffrey Tambor is almost definitely winning but I just want Louis CK to be recognized for his amazing acting skills as well as his writing. I really love William H. Macy in Shameless but I have to put my support behind the man who deserves it most and for once that pesky Jim Parsons isn’t nominated to swoop it away from him.

 

Best Television Series- Comedy or Musical

 

Girls

Jane the Virgin

Orange is the New Black

Silicon Valley

Transparent

 

Who Should Win: Silicon Valley

 

I felt so awful not saying Orange is the New Black. Orange is the New Black is absolutely amazing…..go watch it….I know you have Netflix so stop procrastinating. But I would love to see Silicon Valley win. Besides the fact that there are the biggest underdogs, I just think it would be great for the show to win to be pretty much the only one that relies solely on its humorous writing to be successful. The others are dramadies or just dramas depending on your view point. I also say pretty much the only one because I have not watch Jane the Virgin nor do I really plan to. I might if it wins…..but who are we kidding? Transparent will win so the HFPA can prove they’re progressive.

 

Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie:

 

Martin Freeman: Fargo

Woody Harrelson: True Detective

Matthew McConaughey: True Detective

Mark Ruffalo: The Normal Heart

Billy Bob Thornton: Fargo

 

Who Should Win: I….well, um…..ugh, I don’t know!!!!! Stop making me choose!

 

This is the best category by far! I mean, there is not an undeserving actor in this category and they should all win. So let’s hope for a five way tie. I will be quietly hoping for Woody Harrelson just on the off chance that his drunk speech would definitely be the best. Love that man.

 

Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV Movie:

 

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The Honorable Woman

Jessica Lange: American Horror Story: Freak Show

Frances McDormand: Oliver Kitteridge

Frances O’Connor: The Missing

Allison Tolman: Fargo

Who Should Win: Allison Tolman

 

I know, I’m going against The Queen; Jessica Lange. But how great of a moment would it be if Allison Tolman won? And she has a really good chance. Why? Because her performance was by far the best out of all five but again, I wouldn’t be surprised it Lange takes the Globe again.

 

Best Mini-Series or TV Movie

 

Fargo

The Missing

The Normal Heart

Oliver Kitteridge

True Detective

 

Who Should Win: True Detective

 

And I can hear half of the audience groaning after it happens. You either love it or you hate it but I personally think it was brilliant. Nothing against The Normal Heart or Fargo, I am big fans of both of you but True Detective needs to win because let’s be honest they probably can’t top it with Season Two.

 

Best Actress in a Drama Series

 

Claire Danes: Homeland

Viola Davis: How to Get Away with Murder

Julianna Margulies: The Good Wife

Ruth Wilson: The Affair

Robin Wright: House of Cards

 

Who Should Win: Viola Davis

 

Um, because she’s Viola Davis. She’s had an excellent season so far and we need to see her on that stage. Maybe I’m still bitter she didn’t win a few years ago for The Help. She was robbed!! Robin Wright also deserves it for her amazing performance in House of Cards and you really can’t count out Margulies or Danes in this category but let’s hope we Viola up there taking the Globe.

 

Best Actor in a Drama Series

 

Clive Owen: The Knick

Liev Schreiber: Ray Donovan

Kevin Spacey: House of Cards

James Spader: The Blacklist

Dominic West: The Affair

 

Who Should Win: Kevin Spacey

 

If I’m going with my favorite, it’s Kevin Spacey all the way. Though I thought Dominic West was brilliant in The Affair. However, most people are calling for Clive Owen to take the Globe. I can honestly say I have no idea who’s going to win so let’s just watch and see.

 

Best Television Series- Drama

 

The Affair

Downton Abbey

Game of Thrones

The Good Wife

House of Cards

 

Who Should Win: Game of Thrones

 

Though I would love for Downton Abbey to finally be appreciated, it is pretty clear to me that Game of Thrones is overdue for a Globe. People are calling for The Good Wife to win to make the awards a little more mainstream but what’s more mainstream than the show that keeps breaking internet streaming records?? Literally after the Purple Wedding, the internet broke. Let’s watch Game of Thrones finally get the respect it deserves.
