Golden Globe Nominees: Best Drama Series

My predictions: 3/5, missing “The Americans” and “Pose
Who’s missing? The Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us, Counterpart

I didn’t even notice one of the biggest snubs until I got to this category to write about it! After winning this category last year, “The Handmaid’s Tale” got left out of this race despite two acting bids. That’s a real disappointment considering it was my choice for Best Drama Series this past season. “This Is Us” being dropped after two seasons is less of a shock, and I’m sad about “Counterpart” but not surprised. Instead, we get one departing series for the first time, The Americans, and four brand-new shows. I didn’t get into Pose but I understand that people like it a lot. Homecoming and Killing Eve were expected, and both did well, with two and one acting nominations, respectively. I’m most excited about Bodyguard, which I swapped into my predictions after realizing that it was eligible in this category rather than the miniseries race. This is an interesting list to be sure even if it wouldn’t really mirror my own.

Who will win? Of all the new shows, which one wins? I’ll bet on Homecoming right now.
