    However is it possible Small Axe spoils in Series?

    https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/awards/story/2021-02-10/golden-globes-predictions-film-television

    I mean, anything is possible. I wouldn’t bet on it, though.

    Has anyone seen this?

    a lot of the tv journalists I follow on Twitter are talking about this. I don’t know how shocking any of it is but it makes the HFPA and Globes look so shady and even more illegitimate lmao. Also, look at the details about Emily in Paris. I wonder if we’ll see any form of industry response/protest/backlash

    I wonder if it’s going to affect the awards chances of some of the shows/films that win (i.e. will a win for The Queen’s Gambit hurt it when it comes into competition with I May Destroy You later, Hugh Grant with Ewan McGregor?)

    I hate how all of these anti-HFPA articles come across as the critics just being angry that they nominated stuff they didn’t like. I mean I think it’s stupid that Emily in Paris got nominated but at the end of the day just because the critics have decided something isn’t good shouldn’t mean it should be ignored if other people like it. For example, I thought the first season of The Politician was exceptional but it would never have got any recognition if not for the HFPA being separate to the critics. So for me personally, I was grateful to have a show like the Globes in that scenario.

    And it’s especially frustrating because what journalists really should be going after the HFPA for is stuff like all the female TV nominees being white and, even more so, the inclusion of that ableist piece of shit Music on the film side. These things get mentioned of course but ultimately all take a back seat to the fact that they’re pissed that an awards show is choosing things that weren’t hot on metacritc.

    And the truth is that this is one of many open Hollywood secrets that people who know better are playing into the outrage from people who don’t know how the sausage is made for their clicks on their articles reacting to this and likes and RTs for their “witty/above it” tweets about it. It’s so boring, transparent, and late. I use to blame outsiders (for lack of a better word) for the hashtag outrage when award season comes along, but I don’t anymore bc at the end of the day, these things aren’t as important to people that aren’t in the industry. It’s the industry and people who cover the industry for a living that has to finally draw a line in the sand and determine whether these things matter. Is it about integrity and being about the work or do you want acknowledgment for said work. If it’s the latter (spoiler it always is!), then they either need to know what time it is and play the game accordingly or stand up and change the rules of the game so the process doesn’t seem as gross.

    I do understand the scepticism around a potential The Crown sweep (I myself am sceptical and am predicting it to lose supporting actress) because of this being its fourth season but I do have to ask how many shows have surged at the Globes in their third or fourth seasons without any Emmy success the previous year?

    Whilst I’m not anticipating The Crown winning each category it’s nominated in here, I do feel that the fact it has gotten the most nominations of both film and television and that this season has done so well may be an indicative sign that the nominations were harder for it to achieve than wins. A bit like Schitt’s Creek.

    Haha we have very similar should wins forwardswill (although I don’t really have a should win in Limited/Movie Actor).

    The categories I am most on the fence about are S. Actor and Series. I can see the HFPA awarding Schitt’s Creek like Fleabag last year and just going for the breakout creator and the show but Ted Lasso is a very tempting prediction for me to make and I keep getting Ben Whishaw vibes off of John Boyega.

    I strangely feel so confident about Murphy winning (which is ironic because she was the one I was the most sceptical of winning at the Emmys) that I am mulling putting my super bet on it.

    How are they similar? Just because they are both British?

    How are they similar? Just because they are both British?

    Both are in buzzy and acclaimed Amazon/BBC limited series (that are nominated for the Series category at the Globes), deliver the most acclaimed performances on their shows even if they aren’t the most buzzed about or hyped aspects of them and both have film careers and are parts of beloved franchises (even if they’re not exactly that well known). They are both British as well but I don’t think that helped Whishaw or is why Boyega might win. I have a feeling he’ll win both CC and the Emmy too like Whishaw.

    But the small Whishaw vibes is not the only reason I’m predicting Boyega over Levy (and I probably will keep that prediction even though I know it’s a risky one). There’s the quirky stat of each winner in this category since 2014 being from a Series nominee and each winner in this category since 2001 from a limited series/movie being from a series/movie nominee. Of course stats can be broken but it is an interesting one nonetheless. I also think that Small Axe is second in limited series so there’s that too. And I think the backlash over the snubs of black actors could play to his advantage. Here he is as one of only three people of colour nominated on the television side this year for acting and the only one nominated for being in a drama. It also helps that he is an outspoken supporter of Black Lives Matter and someone who attracted attention last summer for being an outspoken supporter of BLM so I think the HFPA might award him to give themselves a self congratulatory pat on the back after what’s happened over the past weeks with them.

    Judging by those predictions, particularly the Murphy should win over Anderson, it’s pretty evident you haven’t seen the crown or have bias against it.

    Murphy was good in schitts creek and has the comedy Emmy to show for it now, but against Gillian’s exceptional portrayal of a historical figure in an acclaimed drama series means there’s not a chance she should be taking it home.

    Not to mention, The Crown season 4 is clearly deserving of any drama award, that much is undeniable & the clear frontrunner spot is very well earned.

    Forwardswill and I are two of the biggest fans of The Crown on this site but like them (although probably not for the same reasons) I think Murphy should win. Anderson was phenomenal in The Crown (I won’t stop saying that even though that seems to be an unpopular opinion on this particular site) and I am rooting for her to win the Emmy and BAFTA but Alexis is an iconic character and Murphy’s performance is a tour de force.

    So whilst I won’t mind Anderson winning (or really anyone in this category because they were all phenomenal) I am rooting for Murphy here.
