2013 Golden Globes: Best TV Drama Actress Nominees
Glenn Close won two Emmys and a Globe at the beginning of Damages' five-season run. Since then, however, the legal drama's buzz has chilled (moving from basic cable's FX to DirecTV's exclusive Audience Network in Season 4 didn't help). It's typical of the Globes to recognize an actress early in a show's run and then to keep nominating her reflexively year after year. Then again, with Damages going off the air, this will be the last chance for the Globes to let Close take a victory lap. Odds for victory: Middling.
