Will there be any suspense beyond who Ricky Gervais will zing?
Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series - Comedy Or Musical
Laura Dern, "Enlightened"
Zooey Deschanel, "The New Girl"
Tina Fey, "30 Rock"
Laura Linney, "The Big C"
Amy Poehler, "Parks and Recreation"
Should Win: Amy Poehler is TV's best comedic lead actress, though that shouldn't take anything away from what is actually a very good nomination field of funny women.
Will Win: Zooey Deschanel seems like the ultimate Golden Globe darling and she's my pick. But don't be even slightly surprised if Laura Dern pulls off the upset. She's a former Miss Golden Globe who has also won two competition Globes for good measure, plus she helped create and develop her challenging show. In fact, think of Deschanel as 1a, but Dern as a close 1b.
