Golden Globe Nominees: Best Drama Series

My predictions: 3/5, missing “Big Little Lies” and “Killing Eve”
Who’s missing? Pose, Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us, Euphoria, Watchmen

Well, this is a bit surprising. I wouldn’t have bet on Killing Eve returning for its second season, especially with star Sandra Oh, who won the Globe last year, not nominated this time around, even if its other star Jodie Comer up this time, I didn’t anticipate such support. Past nominee The Crown is back, as is Big Little Lies, which won a different prize the last time it was eligible. So much for “Game of Thrones” getting love in its final season, and it’s as if “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which won this award two years ago, isn’t even on anymore. After being almost entirely ignored last year, Succession is here this time around, joining the only freshman show in this race, The Morning Show. I still need to finish some of these seasons, though I don’t think I’ll be watching “Succession” anytime soon, saving it for Emmy time instead.

Who will win? I’m tempted to predict “The Crown,” but I think I’ll pick The Morning Show instead.
