Golden Globe Predictions – Television

One thing about the television side of Golden Globes that can often make them better than the Emmys is the groups’ openness to nominating fresh, new shows and performers right off the bat. We’ve gotten inspired nominations and wins in the past (everything from Felicity to Mozart in the Jungle) and it makes for a wilder group and a significantly tougher set of predictions.

Expect to see some new shows like Homecoming, Pose, Kidding and Forever here but also expected noms for The Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us and the final season of The Americans

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
