Final Golden Globe Predictions


The Golden Globes air tonight! Last year, there was only one freshman drama series contending, and now we’re back to having four out of five as new shows like in 2015 and 2016. “The Handmaid’s Tale” didn’t have much trouble triumphing last year, but now it’s not even nominated, and the only non-freshman is departing series “The Americans,” also honored for the first time. Having no frontrunner is sort of cool, and though I’m predicting “Homecoming,” I’m rooting for “Bodyguard,” which would be a cool choice. On the comedy side, will “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” repeat as expected, or another show end up winning? Regarding the limited series categories, I’d love to see “A Very English Scandal” win the top prize, but I don’t think it’s likely. Like I championed Thandie Newton to no effect two years ago, I’m hoping that Yvonne Strahovski can win this year in that same category. I’m paying much more attention to the film categories, where I’ve seen everything, but I’ll enjoy these races too. Predicted winners are below – click on category headings for full analysis, and leave your thoughts in the comments! Head over to MoviesWithAbe.com for film predictions.
