Who Will Win the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama? (PHOTOS)

2013 Globes: TV Actors
We rate the contenders in the Best TV Drama Actor race.
The five actresses up for a Golden Globe this Sunday in the TV Drama category — Connie Britton (ABC’s Nashville), Glenn Close (Audience Network’s Damages), Claire Danes (Showtime’s Homeland), Michelle Dockery (PBS’ Downton Abbey) and Julianna Margulies (CBS’ The Good Wife) — are all about prestige. But prestige isn’t enough to win you a trophy.

These five are all acclaimed thespians on critically adored shows. Except for relative newcomer Dockery, they have long histories of awards-worthy work going back two decades or more. But the Globe voters like novelty and buzz, and in the end, those may prove more important than merit in this category.

Take a look at the gallery above and let us know in the comments below whether you think our predictions for Sunday’s Globes ceremony are on target. And keep an eye out every day this week for more handicapping in the Globes’ TV races.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs live on Sunday at 5PM ET/8PM PT on NBC.
