Golden Globe Nominees: Best TV Series – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Mr. Robot” and “Narcos” over “The Crown” and “This Is Us”
Who’s missing? The Americans, Empire, Mr. Robot, Narcos, Outlander

This is one of the only places where last year’s winner meant nothing as is often true with the Globes, dismissing four of last year’s nominees and keeping only Emmy juggernaut Game of Thrones. Replacing last year’s four new shows are four new shows from this year, two of which I don’t watch. Those are Netflix series The Crown and Stranger Things, both of which scored an acting nomination each. This Is Us and Westworld are the two big winners, each earning two acting nominations today and ranking as the most beloved new series.

Who will win? It’s hard to decide, but I think Westworld will take it.
