Golden Globes 2021 predictions slugfest: Experts wonder what’s up with these TV nominations?
The 2021 Golden Globe nominations left Gold Derby experts Joyce Eng and Christopher Rosen more than a little bit surprised. After all, expected contenders “I May Destroy You” and star Michaela Coel and buzzy new Netflix drama “Bridgerton” and its cast were ignored by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in favor of surprise selections such as “Emily in Paris” and “Ratched.”
Or maybe we shouldn’t have been shocked by the outcome. After all, the Golden Globes have long harbored strong feelings for the work of Ryan Murphy, something that didn’t change this year with surprise nominations for “Ratched” co-star Cynthia Nixon and “Hollywood” co-star Jim Parsons — as well as a Best Drama series for “Ratched” itself.
During the latest Gold Derby experts slugfest, Eng and Rosen discuss the Golden Globes nominations across the television landscape and cross their fingers for a big night at the forthcoming ceremony for “The Flight Attendant” and star and nominee Kaley Cuoco.
