Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) is as close to a lock as we have at the 2018 Golden Globes, according to the nearly 1,000 people who’ve made their predictions at Gold Derby. However, one of our Top 24 Users and another one of our All-Star Users instead believe that Katherine Langford (“13 Reasons Why”) will pull off a shocking upset for Best TV Drama Actress. Do you agree or disagree? Hurry and make your own Golden Globes predictions right now.
Moss has already proven victorious with the Golden Globes, winning for the miniseries “Top of the Lake” (2013). In addition, she was nominated for “Mad Men” at the 2011 ceremony. Moss now has overwhelming 2/13 odds to claim a bookend trophy for Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” in which she plays one of underprivileged handmaids who’s forced to bear children for the rich and powerful. Moss won a pair of Emmys this fall for both producing and starring on the show, and the Golden Globes will likely follow suit.
But Langford (25/1 odds) could surprise us all for “13 Reasons Why” when the Golden Globe winners are announced on January 7. She portrays a teenage girl who dies by suicide after suffering a string of betrayals and traumas in high school on Netflix’s young-skewing drama. As our editor Daniel Montgomery points out, the Golden Globes are suckers for young starlets, and Langford fits the same mold as past breakthrough champs like Claire Danes (“My So-Called Life”) and Keri Russell (“Felicity”).
Rounding out the list of Best TV Drama Actress nominees, Claire Foy (“The Crown”) comes in third with 28/1 odds, Caitriona Balfe (“Outlander”) is fourth with 33/1 odds, and Maggie Gyllenhaal (“The Deuce”) is fifth with 50/1 odds. Of note, Foy just won this category last year for playing a young Queen Elizabeth II. If Foy prevails again she’ll join an exclusive club with Danes, who for “Homeland” is the only person in the history of this category to win two Golden Globes in a row.
