Every year it happens. Last year it was Rachel Bloom (“My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) the big surprise winner. So lets figure this out now: Who’s this year’s big surprise winner?December 27, 2016 at 5:24 pm #1201975841
Live Schreiber could upset, Drama series is wide open, Hiddleston could upset. Comedy actor and actress I think are pretty locked up. Drama actress is also wide open, it could go to anyone. I also think the big upset could be Chrissy Metz.December 27, 2016 at 5:49 pm #1201975857
I think on the movie side, film drama and supporting actor are the most likely upsets. I think drama is between Manchester and moonlight, but I feel like hacksaw ridge is surging at the rift time to win there. And in supporting, mahershala feels safe because it doesn’t seem like there’s a single person who is in second behind him. But I still think either bridges or Patel could upset.
On the television side, I think drama series is the most open category. Game of Thrones is the frontrunner, but something just doesn’t feel right about it. The HFPA haven’t been fans of that show so far, and I don’t see that changing this year. Plus they have an incredible opportunity to award a new show and mark an early favorite for next years Emmys, which GOT won’t be eligible for.December 27, 2016 at 5:58 pm #1201975864
Stranger Things in Drama Series is my big upset, though I don’t know why so few are predicting it.

Veep winning Comedy Actress and Comedy Series are my upsets, because while they seem to hate her and the show, this is probably the year she will win, because of the election. Kubo would be my film upset, as the Globes might finally want to award something other than a Disney film, but probably not.December 27, 2016 at 6:24 pm #1201975895
Mandy Moore will win supporting actressDecember 27, 2016 at 7:29 pm #1201975922

I think you’re on to something with Kubo. Remember how they gave How To Train Your Dragon 2 Best Animated Feature of eventual Oscar champ Big Hero 6 AND infamously Oscar-snubbed The Lego Movie? 😉December 27, 2016 at 9:58 pm #1201975984
Tom hiddleston is winning his categoryDecember 28, 2016 at 12:03 am #1201976033
With three noms, I feel like This Is Us will win something. Chrissy Metz + Series would be a surprise.December 28, 2016 at 4:45 am #1201976120

But The Crown and Westworld have three nominations too.
And Thandie Newton is in a prime position to win over Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz.December 28, 2016 at 4:51 am #1201976123
What I meant was that if a show like that (broadcast network, no big budget, name) gets three nominations they must have really liked it.
