I dont think Dinklage is getting in. He hasnt been nominated since season 1, and he had nothing to do this season.November 27, 2015 at 1:58 pm #365813
I don’t see Dinklage or Headey getting in.November 27, 2015 at 4:26 pm #365814
These categories can be so random at times, I agree with the above mention of Peter Dinklage not getting in. I just don’t think he will be back after an absence as long as his. Here are my current predictions:
Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
Ted Danson (Fargo)
Damian Lewis (Wolf Hall)
Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline)
Christian Slater (Mr. Robot)
Comments: The Globes love their new shows, I think Christian Slater will ride the success of his show and get nominated. Damian Lewis is a past winner for Homeland and was good in Wolf Hall. Ben Mendelsohn fits the breakthrough performance. Which leaves this category to Ted Danson and Tituss Burgess. I think Fargo will be awarded enough elsewhere for Tituss Burgess to win.
Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black)
Lena Headey (Game of Thrones)
Melissa McBride (The Walking Dead)
Jean Smart (Fargo)
Comments: I think Headey will get in similar to how Joanne Froggatt got in last year. They both had quite big and important storyline on their shows. I’m hoping that Melissa McBride will get in how Monica Potter got in a few years ago. Both very different performances but strong performances that are the best on their respective shows. I think Mo’Nique is a lock but then I thought Julia Roberts was a lock last year as well, so we will have to see. Uzo should be back as her shows only acting nomination. Jean Smart should win this category.November 27, 2015 at 4:33 pm #365815
Niecy Nash, Scream Queens**
Lea Michele, Scream Queens
Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey
Uzo Aduba, Orange is the New Black
Allison Janney, Mom
Jean Smart is going lead in my opinion and I don’t buy Headey. Like at all. I would also be surprised seeing Regina King, it’s not a lifetime achievement committee like the Emmys. If they see her actual performance, she’s out.
Finn Wittrock, American Horror Story
Damian Lewis, Wolf Hall
Ted Danson, Fargo
Jonathan Banks, Better Call Saul**
Hugh Laurie, VeepNovember 27, 2015 at 5:15 pm #365818
I sure like how you tried to discredit Regina’s performance. She was better than every nominee you even listed. LMFAO! Niecy Nash and Lea Michelle? Like, no.
I don’t expect Flop Queens to get anything for this season.
Only person that deserves a nomination from AHS is Mr. Flick of the Wrist.
I was surprised no one is really picking Smollet. I mean he could ride that Empire wave right to a nomination.November 27, 2015 at 6:12 pm #365819
If you’re not picking Julie Walters to be nominated for “Indian Summers,” you are way, way off base. She is probably winning if you look back at the type of people that usually receives that category’s prize.November 27, 2015 at 8:44 pm #365820
For supporting actor I am currently predicting Kit Harington and Taylor Kitsch. There is almost always a nomination in this category from an HBO program. Harington received the most buzz because of finale. The HBO nom is usually for a miniseries but I don’t see Michael Kenneth Williams getting nominated, that is why I am predicting Kitsch.November 27, 2015 at 10:28 pm #365821
Harington actually fits the Globes criteria for being a young and unknown performer with a buzzed material from a buzzed show.
Oh, wait. That was only valid if you’re female and beautiful. LOL.November 27, 2015 at 10:41 pm #365822
The Supporting Actress category is doing my head in, I’m definitely not sold on anyone except Gaby Hoffman (Transparent). As much as I love Nash in Scream Queens, I just don’t feel like the show will make a splash at the Globes.
Supporting Actor: Jonathan Banks, Tituss Burgess, Jaime Camil, Ben Mendelsohn & Jussie Smollett. Camil is a left-field prediction & Smollett will definitely get in ala Chris Colfer (Glee). If we argue that the Globes love musicals and that Empire will make a splash, wouldn’t it make sense to nominate the breakout musical star Smollett + his role (at least in season 1) felt important.November 28, 2015 at 1:39 am #365823
^But wasn’t Colfer more showier, more campy and…. louder than Smollett? You can’t say they are in a similar situation just because they play two gays in two musical shows. In fact they are like the polar opposites of themselves and couldn’t be more different. Jamal is more calm, subtle character and feels more like a real person you could see on the street than a caricature like Kurt and that’s why Globe voters probably won’t go for it.
On the other hand, Smollett’s Emmy snub doesn’t mean anything in terms of lack of support from the industry because Chris Colfer wouldn’t have gotten in Drama Supporting Actor back in 2010, either. There’s no way to understand if the industry really hates Empire or just don’t like enough to put it in the competitive Drama field. Because I’m having a hard time believing the same voter who voted for Glee just five years ago wouldn’t vote for a show like Empire considering the latter even have more prestigous and Oscar-nominated names in it and unlike Glee it also skews more older audience.
On another note, Julie Andrews example is completely irrevelant to the other veterans who have won in this category because “Indian Summers” is Brit show which is neither a critical darling nor a rating hit. And Miss Andrews wasn’t neither a sex icon nor a Globes favourite movie star when she’s young like Jacqueline Bissett, either.
They should really love Brooklyn in order to nominate her here.

Jonathan Banks, ‘Better Call Saul’
Tituss Burgess, ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’
Ted Danson, ‘Fargo’
Hugh Laurie, ‘Veep’
Damian Lewis, ‘Wolf Hall’
Spoiler: Peter Dinklage, ‘Game of Thrones’
Comment: I think Jonathan Banks is the only secure nomination for ‘Better Call Saul’. His performance was brilliant. Tituss Burgess fits the Globes profile and is a fan favorite. Danson and Laurie are veterans in this category, both multiple Globe winners and beloved in the industry. Damian Lewis is only getting in if they show love for ‘Wolf Hall’, which is quite possible. Dinklage hasn’t been nominated since season 1 and I don’t see him getting in now. However, his Emmy win could help him.
Uzo Aduba, ‘Orange Is the New Black’
Christine Baranski, ‘The Good Wife’
Lena Headey, ‘Game of Thrones’
Jean Smart, ‘Fargo’
Maggie Smith, ‘Downton Abbey’
Spoiler: Allison Janney, ‘Mom’
Comment: The buzz for ‘Orange Is the New Black’ isn’t as big as it used to be, so I’m not sure Uzo Aduba is getting in for certain, but if anyone from the show is getting in, it’s her. Christine Baranski is long overdue for some awards recognition and if Panjabi, Noth, Charles, Cumming and Margulies managed to be nominated at least once, so should she. And she should win, since the Globes didn’t reward her performance in ‘Cybill’. Headey gave an incredible performance and could enter like Froggatt did last year. Jean Smart is absolutely amazing in Fargo and Maggie Smith IS Downton Abbey.I can as well see Allison Janney getting in for ‘Mom’.

Would UnReal’s Constance Zimmer be considered for a supporting nomination or lead?November 28, 2015 at 7:17 am #365826
Boomer, could you please add the Sense8 actors to the supporting categories. Since there are 8 main characters, I’m assuming they’ll all go supporting,, even though we don’t have official confirmation yet.November 28, 2015 at 7:29 am #365827
Tituss Burgess deserves this win just like he deserved his non-Emmy win. Easily. But he won’t be nominated. I don’t think Kimmy will be remembered at all. And with Tina Fey not being a host, sucking up to her isn’t an option either. I do think Kemper has a good shot.
Constance Zimmer is a co-lead on her show, but common, it’s not happening (she deserves it though).
LOL at Christine Baranski getting nominated and Niecy Nash winning. Sure, things like Baranski for a seventh season of a show that hasn’t been their favorite can happen (didn’t Cumming get a nomination as recently as last year or the year before?), but I doubt it. I would certainly not be predicting her. And Niecy Nash winning? Man, fanboys just don’t know when to quit.
I think Jean Smart and Monique are near locks for these nominations. Then take your pick on what crazy nominations fill up the category.
For men, I don’t think there’s even a point in predicting, there are no clear favorites, just a lot of wishful thinking, some might happen, some definitely will not. I think this is the one place Hugh Laurie was ever a possibility, so there’s one nominee.
