With 8/13 odds from our seven TV Experts, “The Crown” is projected to win Best Drama Series at Sunday’s Golden Globes. Centered around the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II of England, the Netflix program stars Golden Globe nominees Claire Foy and John Lithgow. Four of our Experts are predicting the ‘Crown’ victory: Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), and Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly).
In second place is “This Is Us” with 21/10 odds. The three Experts picking that series to win are Christopher Rosen (Entertainment Weekly), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), and Ken Tucker (Yahoo). This NBC show takes place in the 1970s and modern day about various members of a family. Globe acting nominees are Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore. Much further behind are “Westworld” with 40/1 odds, “Stranger Things” with 50/1 odds, and “Game of Thrones” with 80/1 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 is also “The Crown” with 5/6 odds. Once again, the second spot is held by “This Is Us,” but is further away with 4/1 odds. We then have “Westworld” (HBO) at 15/2, “Stranger Things” (Netflix) at 10/1, and “Game of Thrones” (HBO) at 18/1.
All of the programs in this category are first-year shows except for “Game of Thrones,” which has never won the series race at the Globes despite doing so at the Emmy Awards twice. “GOT” has an acting contender this year in Lena Headey. “Westworld” has Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton. “Stranger Things” has Winona Ryder.
