According to the combined predictions of our Experts, Editors, Users, Top 24 Users (the highest scorers predicting last year’s Globe winners), and All Users, the Golden Globes will evenly spread the wealth to four TV programs: “House of Cards,” “Orange is the New Black,” “True Detective,” and “Olive Kitteridge” are expected to take two awards apiece.
After losing Best Drama Series and Best Drama Actor (Kevin Spacey) last year to “Breaking Bad‘s” indomitable swan song, Netflix’s “House of Cards” is forecast to win both of those races this year. It would be the first Drama Series win for an online program, and also the first ever Globe win for double Oscar champ Spacey, nominated this year for the eighth time.
But the Netflix party won’t stop there. The online streaming service will also take Best Comedy Series for “Orange is the New Black” and Best TV Supporting Actress for scene-stealer Uzo Aduba, who won a Comedy Guest Actress Emmy for her role last summer.
HBO will also have cause to celebrate. The premium cable network is expected to win Best TV Movie/Limited Series for “True Detective” and Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actor for Matthew McConaughey, who won a Globe just last year for his big-screen role in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
Another HBO miniseries will likely grab a pair of prizes as well: “Olive Kitteridge,” which is favored to win Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actress for Frances McDormand and Best TV Supporting Actor for Bill Murray.
A few other shows will win one award apiece. Viola Davis will prevail as Best Drama Actress for ABC’s soapy legal drama “How to Get Away with Murder.” It will be her first win after two previous nominations.
Best Musical/Comedy Actor will go to Jeffrey Tambor for another online series, Amazon Prime’s “Transparent,” in which he plays a transgender woman. Despite being a TV veteran, this is Tambor’s first Globe nomination.
