According to Gold Derby’s combined odds, the race for Best TV Supporting Actress at the 2018 Golden Globes will be a nailbiter between Laura Dern (“Big Little Lies”) and Megan Mullally (“Will and Grace”). But who will ultimately triumph? Our industry experts, website editors and Top 24 users are split in their predictions, with Dern getting slightly better odds (2/1) than Mullally (4/1). Can Mullally beat the odds and take down frontrunner Dern? Let us know who YOU think will win by sounding off down in the comments section.
Dern is already a three-time Golden Globe winner for “Afterburn” (1992), “Recount” (2008) and “Enlightened” (2011). In addition, Dern served as Miss Golden Globe at the 1982 ceremony thanks to being the daughter of famous folks Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd. Dern won an Emmy earlier this year for her role as conceited neighbor Renata Klein on HBO’s limited series “Big Little Lies,” and is the favorite to now repeat at the Globes.
However, might the Hollywood Foreign Press Association instead want to throw a bone to Mullally for the buzzed-about comeback season of “Will and Grace”? NBC’s popular sitcom has never won a Golden Globes — yes, you read that right — so now would be the perfect time to honor the show. Mullally earned four back-to-back Globe noms (2001-2004) during “Will and Grace’s” original run, but lost each time for her role as wealthy assistant Karen Walker.
Besides Dern and Mullally, some of the other performers in the running for Best TV Supporting Actress at the 2018 Golden Globes are Chrissy Metz (“This Is Us”), Shailene Woodley (“Big Little Lies”), Ann Dowd (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”), Alexis Bledel (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Winona Ryder (“Stranger Things”).
