Golden Globe Musings: Best Comedy Series


Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced soon, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anyone important. A reminder that last year’s nominees mean zilch at the Globes and that the race is almost entirely unpredictable.

Last year’s nominees:
Black-ish
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Master of None
SMILF
Will and Grace


New contenders:
Barry
Forever
Kidding
The Kominsky Method


Potential first-time nominees:
GLOW
The Good Place


Returning series:
Atlanta
Murphy Brown


Both “Master of None” and “SMILF” are out of the running this year, and “Atlanta,” the champ from two years ago, is back and all but guaranteed to score a slot. “Barry” is equally locked, and though there are a handful of new shows is consideration, it seems like it might well be time for “The Good Place” to finally break through, and for another show snubbed in this race last year, “GLOW,” to earn its spot. I wonder if we’ll get a surprise like “SMILF” this year.

Current predictions:
Atlanta
Barry
GLOW
The Good Place
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
