But it is important to register your initial predictions now both to lock in those all-important starter odds and let Hollywood know who has the inside track for these kudos.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. awarded quite a few first-timers last year, including “Mr. Robot” and its supporting player Christian Slater, Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”), and Maura Tierney (“The Affair”) from dramas as well as “Mozart in the Jungle” and its star Gael Garcia Bernal plus Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) on the comedy side. The long-form winners were “Wolf Hall,” Oscar Isaac (“Show Me a Hero”), and Lady Gaga (“American Horror Story: Hotel”). Among last year’s winners from series, only Hamm is ineligible as “Mad Men” signed off in 2015.
However, be warned: Golden Globe voters love new shows, often at the expense of past nominees. Freshman dramas in contention include “Billions” (Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti), “Chance” (Hugh Laurie), “The Crown” (Claire Foy), “Designated Survivor” (Kiefer Sutherland), “Goliath” (Billy Bob Thornton), “The Path” (Hugh Dancy, Aaron Paul), “Pitch” (Kylie Bunbury), “Queen of the South” (Alica Braga), “Queen Sugar” (Rutina Wesley), “Stranger Things” (Winona Ryder), “This Is Us” (Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore), and “Westworld” (Anthony Hopkins).
And rookie comedies include “Angie Tribeca” (Rashida Jones), “Atlanta” (Donald Glover), “Baskets” (Zach Galifianakis), “Better Things” (Pamela Adlon), “Crisis in Six Scenes” (Woody Allen), “Divorce” (Sarah Jessica Parker), “The Good Place” (Kristen Bell, Ted Danson), “Graves” (Nick Nolte), “Insecure” (Issa Rae), “One Mississippi” (Tig Notaro), “Speechless” (Minnie Driver), and “Vice Principals” (Danny McBride, Walton Goggins).
