With leading 9/10 odds from our TV Experts, Issa Rae (“Insecure”) is predicted to win Best TV Comedy Actress at Sunday’s 2017 Golden Globes. This would be Rae’s first Globe win for her breakthrough role in the critically acclaimed HBO comedy. Four of our Experts are predicting Rae to prevail: Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) and Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly).
Just behind Rae with odds of 6/1 is four-time Globe winner for “Sex and the City,” Sarah Jessica Parker (“Divorce”). Parker is a Globe fave, having been nominated for almost every year she was eligible for her seminal HBO comedy classic, and one of the three remaining experts — Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby) — thinks she will return to the podium for her latest starring role in the Sharon Horgan-penned HBO comedy.
In third place to win is Emmy queen Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”), also sitting pretty at 6/1 odds. This is her fourth consecutive nomination from the HFPA without a win. Her last win was in 1994 (her first ever nomination) for “Seinfeld,” so Globe voters might finally want to join their Emmy brethren and hand her a trophy after such a long dry spell. Our expert Ken Tucker (Yahoo) is predicting her to prevail.
Next up is last year’s winner Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), who is the number one choice for our last remaining expert Christopher Rosen (Entertainment Weekly), also with 6/1 odds. Rounding out the category are new nominee (and recent Emmy nominee) Tracee Ellis Ross (“black-ish”) at 50/1 odds and previous winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) at 80/1 odds.
According to our overall combined odds featuring the predictions of all Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users (those who did the best at their winner picks last year), and Users, the top choice is also Rae with an almost unassailable 27/20 odds based on the support of nearly 500 people making their predictions. Louis-Dreyfus is in second place with 9/2 odds, neck and neck with Parker at 5/1 odds. Then comes Ross at 6/1, Bloom at 14/1 and Rodriguez at 80/1.
