We all know brand new TV series do very well at the Golden Globes every year so by that logic will the Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul do well with nominations and or wins at the Golden Globes for best actor in drama best supporting actor and best drama series??September 23, 2015 at 6:33 am #362370
It took a while for Breaking Bad to really take off at the Globes, especially with Aaron Paul only getting nominated for the last season, and Anna Gunn never getting noticed. I imagine Better Call Saul may actually be totally shut out at the Globes, given the amount of competition.

I don’t expect any noms for the show but then again wouldn’t be surprised if they do recongize it. The best chance the show has imo is Odenkirk.September 23, 2015 at 1:21 pm #362372
I think its only nomination will be for Bob Odenkirk. Right now, I’m predicting Liev Schreiber.
1. Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan”
*2. Terrence Howard, “Empire”
3. Kyle Chandler, “Bloodline”
4. Rami Malek, “Mr. Robot”
5. Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards”
6. Bob Odenkirk, “Better Call Saul”
*If “Empire” goes C/M, take out Howard and move everyone up.September 23, 2015 at 1:53 pm #362373
I think Bob Odenkirk will probably get nominated, and could actually win. The show has a good chance as well of getting in. Jonathan Banks, no way in hell.September 23, 2015 at 1:58 pm #362374
The show is too classy and edgy for the idiots in Holywood Foreign Press Association to understand, just like how Breaking Bad was a few years ago before it became popular world-wide.(Otherwise it never would have gotten in their radar.) Give them some campy Ryan Murphy shows or some melancholic marriage dramas though, they’d love that.
Although it is also possible that they could embrace it no matter what, just to show the world that they’ve learned from their mistakes. Yes, this one is more likely.September 24, 2015 at 1:45 pm #362375
Going by The Affair’s success at the Globes, I think Better Call Saul or Mr. Robot (or even UnREAL) will be the shiny new toy voters will want to reward.September 24, 2015 at 3:08 pm #362376
Mr. Robot seems like the exact opposite of a Golden Globes show in every way. They like movie stars doing TV, only Showtime/HBO/FX/AMC out of cable networks, and accessible somewhat high-rated popular premises. Mr. Robot–an acclaimed, lesser-known niche cable drama–is as destined to be ignored as Rectify, The Americans, The Leftovers, and Justified before it…wait, no, it’s more destined to be ignored, because it’s on the least prestigious network of them all. It has a better shot at the Emmys, which is not saying much.September 24, 2015 at 3:18 pm #362377
They nominated Piper Perabo in Covert Affairs though, then Callie Thorne the next year for Necessary Roughness.September 24, 2015 at 7:31 pm #362379
Odenkirk and Banks seem like safe bets. I think Odenkirk could win. But I think Banks will lose to Ben Mendehlson.
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.September 24, 2015 at 9:19 pm #362380
I think Narcos and Sense8 have better chances of getting nods.September 25, 2015 at 7:10 am #362381
I think Odenkirk it’s the only lock so far. Maybe Banks has a shot, but since the supporting actor category can be random as f*ck, I’m not counting on it 100% sure. Series? Yeah, probably, but only if Orange stays at the comedy side.September 25, 2015 at 6:01 pm #362382
^ Calling anyone a “lock” at the Globes seems a little optimistic.September 25, 2015 at 6:33 pm #362383
Probably Wagner Moura for “Narcos” and “Rami Malek” for “Mr.Robot” are frontrunners by golden globe standards, oh wait, they aren’t , because they are actually deserving.September 25, 2015 at 7:29 pm #362384

I could actually see them getting in with Schreiber, Spacey, and Howard. Character-actors like Kyle Chandler and especially Bob Odenkirk would get booted. Spacey is the reigning champ and biggest movie star; Schreiber is up for a series that was first embraced by the Globes before anyone else; and Howard is, of course, on the biggest series of 2015.
As for Terrence Howard, it would be a shame for “Empire” to not go Musical/Comedy. It is a legit Musical series, and doesn’t have to be in the same genre here as the Emmys, especially when this group has a category designated for musicals. It makes no difference that it’s a dramatic musical; after all, on the film side, “Les Miz” and “Sweeney Todd” went Musical/Comedy and did just fine.
No matter what, I think it’s finally the year they give it to Liev Schreiber. It just feels like his time with this particular group. And episode-wise, Schreiber has what it takes to win at the Emmys.
