Despite an uneven third season (too much Dana! not enough Brody! Carrie in the loony bin!) “Homeland” is still predicted to explode at the Golden Globe this year with a slew of nominations.
Based on exclusive Gold Derby polling from our Editors, Top 24 and Users, the anti-terrorist drama is expected to be recognized in four different categories: Best Drama Series, Claire Danes as TV Drama Actress, Damian Lewis as TV Drama Actor and Mandy Patinkin as TV Supporting Actor.
Two years ago, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. put “Homeland” on the awards map, honoring it as their favorite TV Drama of 2011 and then again in 2012. The Emmys followed suit, naming it Best Drama Series for its inaugural season at their 2012 ceremony and nominating it again this year, where it lost to “Breaking Bad.”
If the Showtime series three-peats, it will join the ranks of “Mad Men” (2007, 2008, 2009) and “The X-Files” (1994, 1996, 1997) as the only dramas to pull off this feat at the Globes. Two-time champs include: “Northern Exposure,” “L.A. Law,” “Murder, She Wrote” and “Hill Street Blues.”
This year’s Drama Series line-up at the Golden Globes should be a mix of new and returning shows according to our polls. The top six vote-getters are “Breaking Bad” with 9/5 odds, “House of Cards” with 9/2 odds, “Homeland” with 9/2 odds, “Game of Thrones” with 8/1 odds, “Downton Abbey” with 25/1 odds and “Masters of Sex” with 25/1 odds.
