Golden Globe Nominees: Best TV Series – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Affair” and “House of Cards” over “Empire” and “Outlander”
What’s missing? The Affair, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, House of Cards

Now this is a bit surprising, but very much in the style of the Golden Globes. Their winning series from last year, “The Affair,” is gone completely. Dismissed are two series that had been nominated regularly in the past, including one that I really didn’t expect to be gone so soon, “House of Cards.” Joining popular show Game of Thrones, the only returning nominee, are four brand new shows. Two of them I don’t watch, Empire and Outlander, and two I couldn’t be more excited about: Mr. Robot and Narcos. This list is cool if only because it honors five different networks: FOX, HBO, USA, Netflix, and Starz. I’d prefer a handful of other shows be represented here alongside those last two.

What will win? It’s looking like Outlander right now.
