    What new TV Drama do you think has the best chance at the upcoming Golde Globes?

    Note: I put Red Band Society in both Comedy and Drama because it is not known for sure what it will be placed in.

    Either The Affair or How to Get Away Will Murder. It depends on the reviews of The affair

    The Affair has been getting a lot of good reviews. It got second place for the critics choice poll for best new tv drama (the first was The Flash but let’s be honest, they will never nominate that)

    The Affair. HFPA love them some Showtime.

     

    I think Gotham has a chance if it gets bigger (the only great pilot so far). They like to nominate the hit new genre shows (unless they’re on the CW).

    None of them?

    Maybe How to Get Away With Murder but even Scandal hasn’t been nominated yet. Like Gotham, it would have to be pretty big to get their attention.

    What is all of this talk about Gotham and How to Get Away with Murder?  There are two options for votes in this poll: Showtime and HBO.

    If Gotham were to get in, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
    should have gotten in last year.  It was slightly more acclaimed (74
    versus 72 on Metacritic) and much more watched (12 million versus 8
    million, 4.7 versus 3.2 rating).

    Scandal has not been nominated, Kerry Washington has not won, Grey’s Anatomy has not been nominated since 2007 and The Good Wife
    was the first nominee from the big four in three years last year and
    the only way that it got that was by becoming just about the most
    critically-acclaimed show on television (going on to win the TCA Award
    for best drama).  How to Get Away with Murder has a 65 on Metacritic.  Viola Davis is not enough to propel that to a nomination.

    Given the reviews that it has received thus far, The Affair
    will probably be the best reviewed new show of the summer and fall. 
    Also, the Globes love Showtime, seeing as they have nominated it for
    best drama the past seven years.  They have gone out of their way to
    recognize Showtime, nominating The Tudors, awarding the second season of Homeland and nominating the fifth season of Dexter, which was neither good nor new and shiny.

    Last
    year was the first in fifteen that HBO did not have a slot and the
    Globes have often double-nominated them.  They have also gone out of
    their way to nominate them, making sure that they still recognized the
    network each of the five years for them between The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire with a nomination for Rome, three for Big Love and two for True Blood.  More recently, they even nominated The Newsroom, which was pummelled by the critics.  The Leftovers
    was not pummelled by the critics and even gained in critical support
    over the season.  It also needs to be noted that no new drama premiered
    on HBO in 2013.  Their newest show was The Newsroom, but the Globes cannot be held too accountable for snubbing that since they already nominated it once to ridicule.

    Also deserving of a slot in this poll is The Strain, given that the show is FX’s answer to The Walking Dead, which was recently nominated.  The Globes also do not have an aversion to FX, nominating American Horror Story as a drama recently and going back, they actually awarded Nip/Tuck and The Shield.

    Gus Van Sant directing Kelsey Grammer on Starz resulted in a best drama nomination for Boss.  Steven Soderbergh directing Clive Owen on Cinemax deserves a slot in this poll, maybe even ahead of everything that is actually listed.

    I did say if Gotham got bigger it would have a chance (unlike all these other shows besides The Affair). Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. probably would’ve been nominated last year, but it didn’t get bigger. People turned on that bad show quick and thus no Globe love.

     

    Let’s see how Gotham does in the coming weeks. Have you watched it yet?

     

    Their newest show was The Newsroom, but the Globes cannot be held too accountable for snubbing that since they already nominated it once to ridicule.

     

    Ugh. I remember a lot of critics being all snobby and crying over Mad Men being snubbed. The show already won 3 times. Whine about something else.

    The Affair! It’s a total Golden Globe show. It’s Hip, has a young cast, and it has buzz factor. I think it looks great and wouldn’t be suprised if it gets three nomination (series, lead actor/actress) like Masters of Sex did.

    Mad Men is tied as the all-time winner in the category.

    Given the hype for the pilot, Gotham would have had to have been great to rise in the weeks after.

    I picked How To Get Away with Murder.  I think in Broadcast circles this could be the best chance they have for a new show.   I don’t see Madam Secretary getting in while The Good Wife is still around.
