Golden Globe Musings: Best Miniseries or Television Film

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:
Big Little Lies
Feud: Bette and Joan
The Sinner
Top of the Lake: China Girl

I don’t usually write up this category ahead of time, but I have seen a handful of the contenders, or at least the first episode of some of the limited series. Last year, this race included all series that have ended up with more than one season. Seven of the ten Emmy nominees in the corresponding categories are eligible this year, with The Assassination of Gianni Versace and The Tale feeling like the strongest bets to me, Patrick Melrose and The Alienist up next, and then Paterno, Fahrenheit 451, and Genius: Picasso trailing behind that. This year’s new contenders include Maniac, Sharp Objects, A Very English Scandal, Escape at Dannemora, The Little Drummer Girl, Howard’s End, and The Romanoffs. I’m also watching out for the surprise inclusion of Bodyguard here but predicting it to just miss the list.

Current predictions:
The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Sharp Objects
The Tale
A Very English Scandal
