It's awards season and the nominations for the 2019 Golden Globe best actor in a television series are in so you can make your predictions on which actors will win. Half of the best actor nominees across both the drama and comedy or musical categories have earned their first Golden Globe nomination, while the other half are veterans with multiple wins - but which actor from a 2018 show will take home the prize in each category?

The 2019 Golden Globe Best Actor nominees for a musical or comedy category include: Jim Carrey in Kidding, Sascha Baron Cohen in the political satire show Who Is America, five-time nominee Michael Douglas for The Kominsky Method, first-time nominee Bill Hader for Barry, and Donald Glover as Earnest Marks in Atlanta - a role he already received a Golden Globe for in 2017.

In the Golden Globe's drama category, the actors include Jason Bateman in Ozark and four first-time nominees: Stephan James in the psychological thriller Homecoming, Richard Madden in Bodyguard, Billy Porter in Pose, Matthew Rhys in FX period spy thriller series The Americans.

Vote for the 2019 Golden Globe-nominated lead actors from a tv show most likely to win the drama category and the musical or comedy category. After casting your votes, wait for the big night on January 6, 2019, to see if your Golden Globe predictions prove accurate.
