Golden Globes TV predictions slugfest: Can ‘The Affair’ beat ‘House of Cards’? (Video)

With three strong frontrunners — Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taylor Schilling and Gina Rodriguez — aiming to take home the Golden Globe for Best TV Comedy Actress, how are we possibly supposed to predict a winner? That’s just one of the topics Gold Derby editors Tom O’NeilChris Beachum, Daniel Montgomery and I discuss in our newest slugfest. Watch the video below.

Among the other burning topics we can’t agree on:

Is “House of Cards” really the frontrunner we all consider it to be? Don’t forget, the Globes love fresh fare and nothing is newer than “The Affair.”

Can anyone take down Matthew McConaughey (“True Detective“) as Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actor? What about red-hot British star Martin Freeman (“Fargo“)?

Will Kathy Bates (“American Horror Story: Freak Show“) scare voters away because she’s on a horror show, meaning Uzo Aduba (“Orange is the New Black“) or Joanne Froggatt (“Downton Abbey“) might actually win?

Could Starz’ Frances O’Connor (“The Missing“) overtake HBO’s Frances McDormand (“Olive Kitteridge“)? Don’t forget, Globes voters love to spread wealth to all the networks.

  1. Remember the 2010 GG when Barrymore, who lost the Emmy beat Lange Emmy winner (both were in Grey Gardens) and Bacon who lost the Emmy, beat the Emmy winner Gleason. It was almost a make up award to the people who should’ve won Emmys. Couldn’t we see this with Bomer–make up win for the Emmy he didn’t but should’ve won?

  2. I find it strange that Allison Janney nomination streak is never mentioned on this site. She was in the ‘catch-all’ category for the first two years, and than bumped up in years 3 and 4 into the lead category. Being one of the rare nominations where someone is in the sophmore years and makes the grade with globe voters. And now she is nominated in a chuck lorre comedy (which hasn’t done much compared to the emmys). How is it she hasn’t won, let alone continues to get nominated. She seems to have the Will and Grace factor of cool enough to bring to the party, not cool enough to take home.
