Golden Globe Musings: Best Drama 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:
The Crown
Game of Thrones
The Handmaid’s Tale
Stranger Things
This Is Us


New contenders:
Counterpart
Haunting of Hill House
Homecoming
Killing Eve
Pose
Yellowstone


Potential first-time nominees:
The Americans

Last year, it was “Westworld” that was on hiatus, and this year it’s no fewer than three of last year’s nominees. Both “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “This Is Us” seem likely to return, whereas “Westworld” may not due to an uneven second season. I’m confident in both “Killing Eve” and “Homecoming” to grab spots, but less so about “Pose” and “Haunting of Hill House,” which is why I’m going for a less standard but wholly deserving pick, “Counterpart.” I think it’s also possible that “New Amsterdam” could score a surprise mention here.

Current predictions:
Counterpart
The Handmaid’s Tale
Homecoming
Killing Eve
This Is Us
