With leading 5/6 odds from our TV Experts, Claire Foy (“The Crown”) is predicted to win Best TV Drama Actress at Sunday’s 2017 Golden Globes. This would be Foy’s first Globe win for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in the expensive Netflix drama. Four of our Experts are predicting Foy to be coronated: Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby) and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby).
Just behind Foy with odds of 7/5 is reigning Critics’ Choice champ Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”). While this is Wood’s third nom after “Thirteen” (2003) and “Mildred Pierce” (2011), the three remaining experts — Lynette Rice (Ent. Weekly), Christopher Rosen (Ent. Weekly) and Ken Tucker (Yahoo) — think she will finally prevail for playing a robot who gains sentience.
In third place to win is Winona Ryder (“Stranger Things”) with 40/1 odds. Since she’s a past winner for “The Age of Innocence” (1993), might Globe voters use this as an opportunity to welcome someone new into their winner’s club?
Next up is my official pick to win, Caitriona Balfe (“Outlander”), however the experts only give her 66/1 odds to prevail. And in their fifth-place position is Keri Russell (“The Americans”) who, at 80/1 odds, should cherish the Globe she won for “Felicity” (1998).
According to our overall combined odds featuring the predictions of all Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users (those who did the best at their winner picks last year), and Users, the top choice is also Foy with 10/11 odds based on the support of nearly 600 people making their predictions. Once again the second spot is held by Wood, who’s close behind with 13/5. We then all have Ryder at 7/1, Balfe at 16/1, and Russell at 50/1.
“The Crown” is nominated for three Golden Globes, tied for the top spot among all series along with “Black-ish,” “This Is Us” and “Westworld.” Besides Foy, it’s also up for Best Drama Series and Best TV Supporting Actor (John Lithgow).
