As we teased yesterday, we are going to be spending much of this week spotlighting some of the TV nominees for the 2015 Golden Globes airing next week, with us doing as good of a job as possible in the process trying to figure out who in the world is going to win.
The category of Supporting Actor to us is really the best proof possible that this category really should be split up. You have five actors here, and only two of them are from shows regularly classified as an actual series. There is zero comedy representation, and that’s always a sad thing to behold. With that being said, at least this category is fairly up in the air, and we can see almost anyone (except for maybe Alan Cumming) taking home the gold.
The Nominees – Bill Murray (“Olive Kitteridge,” HBO), Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan,” Showtime), Matt Bomer (“The Normal Heart,” HBO), Alan Cumming (“The Good Wife,” CBS), Colin Hanks (“Fargo,” FX)
Who should win – This is an interesting field, given that Bomer and Hanks are the only two that we would have nominated, with Peter Dinklage being the most egregious snub. We feel like Hanks was brilliant, but Bomer completely transformed himself for his role in Ryan Murphy’s television movie. It would be a great testament to “The Normal Heart,” and also all of the great work Matt’s put in over the years without recognition.
Who will win – Our money’s on Murray, mostly because he is the biggest star in the category, and while the Golden Globes don’t always give in to star power with nominations, they do sometimes with winners. We’d much rather see him win for “St. Vincent” than a miniseries that many viewers probably have never heard of.
