With the Golden Globes only a day away, Hulu has made its predictions for winners in several categories (both real and imagined).
Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy
Laura Dern (Enlightened)
Tina Fey (30 Rock)
Laura Linney (The Big C)
Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation)
Zooey Deschanel (New Girl)
Who Should Win: Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”)
“Leslie Knope 2012″ should be the motto for every Parks and Rec. fan—whether it’s for City Council or Golden Globe. As mentioned in our 2011 end-of-year review of the show, Ms. Poehler has had a breakthrough season filled with campaigns, relationships, and hijinks that no one other than she could play with such heart and conviction. The character of Leslie Knope has evolved past the shadow of Michael Scott and “The Office” gang and has really pushed the show to new levels, making Thursday nights on NBC something to talk about once again. With her superb reviews, and critical recognition for the show in the past (with, not to mention, 5 Emmy nominations in the same category) I’m thinking her first GG nomination will be enough to have Amy bring home the Golden statue.
