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:
The Loudest Voice

Last year, this category offered up the startling snub of “When They See Us,” and this year, the field is considerably more stacked with contenders. Only one TV movie has been nominated in the past five years, and this year could be the time for Bad Education. Two of the three Emmy nominees for Best Limited Series, Mrs. America and Unorthodox, seem like sure things. The other selection, Little Fires Everywhere, is likely to be overshadowed by newer entries like The Queen’s Gambit, Small Axe, I May Destroy You, or The Undoing. Two Emmy-eligible offerings that didn’t make the cut, Normal People and The Plot Against America, are also possible. Additionally, look out for The Good Lord Bird, The Comey Rule or season four of Fargo.

Current predictions:
Mrs. America
Normal People
The Queen’s Gambit
Small Axe
