Three movie stars, a double-nominee and an up-and-coming actress who has already worked with one of her competitors make up the five impressive contenders for Best Actress – Limited Series, Anthology or Motion Picture Made in Television at the 80th annual Golden Globe Awards.
Julia Roberts in Gaslit, Jessica Chastain in George & Tommy and Amanda Seyfried in The Dropout are the highest-profile names in this category, an unexpected celebration of TV’s Golden Age for the trio who made their careers in film.
Julia Garner is the only double nominee at the event this year, with both the titular role in the limited series, Inventing Anna, produced by Shonda Rhimes, and as doomed Ozark casino worker Ruth Langmore in the nominated TV drama, Ozark.
If Garner wins both awards, she’ll be in a select group of only five women in Globes history to secure two Golden Globes on the same night: Sigourney Weaver, Helen Mirren, Joan Plowright and Kate Winslet.
The fifth nominee is Lily James, the breakout titular star of the 2015 film Cinderella and, coincidentally the 2018 film sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which also co-starred Amanda Seyfried.
Jessica Chastain has now been nominated for eight Golden Globes, including her 2013 win as Best Actress in the Motion Picture drama Zero Dark Thirty, and Julia Roberts tops that number of nominations marking her tenth nomination. In the limited series Gaslit, she plays Martha Mitchell, the larger-than-life wife of President Richard Nixon’s loyal campaign chairman John Mitchell (Sean Penn) and the big mouth that ultimately helped lead to Nixon’s downfall.
Roberts has already won three Golden Globes for her roles in Steel Magnolias (1990), Pretty Woman (1991) and Erin Brockovich (2001). In a previous TV interview with the Golden Globes website, the actress reminisced about her memorable first time at the Globes when she won.
“I didn’t know what to expect and I didn’t know what was going to happen and it was just all so new and terribly exciting and then I won, so I was ready to explode by the end of the night,” Roberts said in the interview with HFPA member Scott Orlin. “I think when I left, I had to surgically remove the hanger from inside my mouth, I was smiling all night looking around at people and getting to meet people. It’s such a great social atmosphere and I didn’t anticipate that being the case.”
