With runaway 1-to-10 odds from our seven TV Experts, “The People v. O.J. Simpson” is projected to win Best TV Movie/Limited Series at Sunday’s Golden Globes. The 10-part FX anthology focused on the murder trial of famed football running back Simpson and starred Globe nominees Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown, and John Travolta. All seven of our Experts are predicting the victory: Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly), Christopher Rosen (Entertainment Weekly), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), and Ken Tucker (Yahoo).
In second place is the HBO program “The Night Of”” with 33-to-1 odds. Globe acting nominees are Riz Ahmed and John Turturro. Further behind is “The Night Manager” from AMC with 40-to-1 odds starring nominees Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman, and Hugh Laurie. In the fourth spot is ABC’s “American Crime” with 66-to-1 odds and starring nominee Felicity Huffman. The last position is held by “The Dresser” from Starz with 80-to-1 odds.
According to our overall combined odds featuring the predictions of all Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users (those that did the best at their winner picks last year), and Users, the top choice remains “Simpson” once again with 1-to-10 odds. It is followed by “The Night Manager” (25-to-1 odds), “The Night Of” (33-to-1 odds), “American Crime” (66-to-1 odds), and then “The Dresser” (80-to-1 odds).
At the Emmy Awards in September, “Simpson” prevailed for Best Limited Series and picked up acting wins for Paulson, Vance, and Brown. “The Night Manager” won for directing and score. “American Crime” won for supporting actress Regina King. “The Dresser” received no nominations there. “The Night Of” aired in the summer and will potentially compete at the next Emmys.
