List Rules Only actresses who appeared in supporting roles in TV series, miniseries or TV movies that were released in 2015

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

One of the most overlooked categories in the Golden Globes every year is Best Supporting Actress. Whether they’re in a television show, miniseries, or made for TV movie, supporting actresses do more than round out the cast. Not only do they help create a full world with an entire mythology, but they often provide a much needed female perspective in a male dominated landscape. The Golden Globes Supporting Actress in TV, miniseries, and TV movie nomination is an important way to recognize the fine work today female actors are doing on TV. 

Update: The nominees for Best Actress in Television were announced on December 10, 2015.   

Winning a Golden Globe is huge no matter what the category is, but there's something special about the best supporting actress statue. Maybe it’s because the award is given early in the evening, or maybe it’s because these actresses have so much talent but most aren't A-list celebrities. Whatever your reason for loving Hollywood’s bit players, take a look at this list and vote for the actresses you think should be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Note that this list is for actresses who appeared in a TV series, TV miniseries, or TV movie in 2015 - not actresses who appeared in movies that got a theatrical release. If your favorite supporting actress is missing, feel free to add her if she fits the criteria.
