Of the 11 television categories presented at this year’s Golden Globes, HBO won a whopping four trophies. Thanks to “Big Little Lies,” which took home the most Globes since “John Adams,” the paycaster came out as the biggest champ, more than double its closest rivals. Streaming networks Amazon and Hulu both won a pair of trophies for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” respectively. The remaining three Golden Globes were handed out to FX, NBC and Netflix.
For an awards show that’s notorious for spreading the wealth among networks, studios and shows, it’s not surprising to see that the 11 categories were divided among six different outlets. That’s not far off from last year, when only five TV networks proved victorious.
Gold Derby’s predictions on the TV side were 82% accurate, meaning if you had just copied our official odds category-by-category, you would have gotten nine correct out of 11. The two races we failed to call were Best TV Comedy Actor (we opted for NBC’s Eric McCormack for “Will & Grace” over Netflix’s Aziz Ansari for “Master of None”) and Best Movie/Mini Actor (we chose HBO’s Robert De Niro for “The Wizard of Lies” instead of FX’s Ewan McGregor for “Fargo”).
