Since there is allready a thread about the 2017 Emmy Predictions, I thought we could start making some predicitons for the next big award show. Is it likely that last years winners and nominees will be back? What about the Americans breaking through at the Globes? They usually tend to go for new shows but with UnReal, Leftovers and The Americans being so critical acclaimed, is there a chance they could break through?July 18, 2016 at 10:55 am #1201874217
The Leftovers will not air any new episodes in 2016.
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.July 18, 2016 at 11:15 am #1201874230
After The Americans’ Emmy nominations I expect at least one nomination for them.
Sarah Paulson will win Lead Actress in a Limited Series / TV Movie category. And of course they, too, will drop Uzo Aduba.
Westworld is going to be big in the Drama categories. I expect at least 3 nominations.
They’ll drop Empire too. Probably Robin Wright as well.July 18, 2016 at 12:25 pm #1201874283
Notable new shows that will flop:
The Girlfriend Experience
Notable new shows that will slay:
The Night Of
This Is Us
The Night Manager
Shows that may break through:
UnREALJuly 18, 2016 at 12:57 pm #1201874314
I don’t see UnREAL breaking into the Globes if it didn’t after its more successful debut season last year.
The Night Of will absolutely dominate. Sarah Jessica Parker is nearly guaranteed a spot for her new HBO show, Divorce.
Casual will probably stay in Comedy Series. You’re the Worst could make a play.July 18, 2016 at 1:14 pm #1201874333
UnReal is much more buzzed about this year than it was last year. It probably would have gotten the fifth slot in Drama Series last year had Outlander not bribed the HFPA.July 18, 2016 at 2:22 pm #1201874365

I am pretty sure, Outlander and Catriona Balfe will be back at the Globes this year. The show got more positive feedback from the critics (apparently got 85 at metacritic) and some HFPA members are die-hard fans of the show.
It would however be nice when Eva Green could come back and maybe Vera Farmiga could sneak in for Bates Motel. Not likely, but one can dream.July 18, 2016 at 2:23 pm #1201874368
Horace and Pete will definitely do better at the Globes than the Emmys.July 18, 2016 at 2:31 pm #1201874371
I am also hoping for some love for Netflix´s The Crown (if its any good) with Matt Smith and Claire Foy and Baz Luhrmann´s The Get Down.July 18, 2016 at 3:06 pm #1201874393
Claire Foy is spectacular as Anne Boleyn and “who” doesn’t love Dr Who? I believe he can play an insufferable eugenicist fairly well….
Some of these actors appear somewhat ‘typecast’ but they’ve got a heavy-weight director in Peter Morgan.
Looking forward to seeing this series become tres successful.July 24, 2016 at 12:25 am #1201879460
Can Orange is the New Black move to the drama categories? I think if it did it would have a better chance of winning.
People often say that the Golden Globes like to award the new series for their first seasons (Mr. Robot, The Affair, Boardwalk Empire, The Shield, Six Feet Under) and then they award some series several in a row including the first season (Homeland, Mad Men, L.A. Law) and then sometimes they award series later in their run (Breaking Bad, Grey’s Anatomy, 24). OITNB could possibly fall into this category. Season 4 was very good in my opinion and very fitting in drama categories.
Does the Golden Globes allow a category switch (twice)? OITNB started in Drama for season one but moved to comedy for seasons 2 and 3. American Horror Story was in Drama for season one but moved to the miniseries/movie categories from season 2 on.July 24, 2016 at 11:57 am #1201879545

I could see Winona Ryder getting in for Stranger ThingsJuly 24, 2016 at 12:57 pm #1201879569
@tom_smith, Grey’s Anatomy won for its first/second season. 24 won for its second/third and had been nominated both years before that. Breaking Bad and The X-Files are the only dramas that won later in their runs. The X-Files had already won earlier in its run and Orange is the New Black is no Breaking Bad.
