Final Golden Globe Predictions

Golden Globe nominations will be announced tomorrow morning. I’ve gone through every category in detail and made my predictions, and I’m making two slight changes, both in categories related to limited series. I’ve swapped in Helen Mirren in the actress race and “Years and Years” for Best Miniseries or TV Movie since that feels like Globe voters’ cup of tea. Otherwise, I can tell it’s going to be a crowded year in a lot of categories, and whereas last year’s AFI list of top TV programs caught me by surprise by including “Pose” and “Succession,” this year’s features just one new drama series, and that’s “Watchmen,” which I don’t think I’ll make the cut. It does include the four limited series I and everyone else are predicting. I’m least confident about the drama actor race, but I’m just not sure what to pick instead. As always, I’d love to see some fantastic, creative, unexpected choices across the board. Full reactions by category beginning Monday morning, though probably not quite as early as nominations are announced given that I’m currently in Los Angeles.

No guts, no glory:
Big Little Lies” shut out
Undone” scores a Best Drama Series nomination
Diego Luna scores a Best Drama Actor bid for “Narcos: Mexico
