The 73rd annual Golden Globes take place on Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the year’s best in movies and television will be honored by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Who will win on the TV side of the ledger? Find out below with our Globes predictions. (For movie predictions, head here.)
Best Television Series, Drama
Game of Thrones, HBO
Mr. Robot, USA
This is a tough one because I’m afraid my personal bias will get in the way of deciding how the foreign press will vote. But I think Empire has the edge here over Outlander, which is the other clear favorite.
Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy
Mozart in the Jungle, Amazon Video
Orange Is the New Black, Netflix
Silicon Valley, HBO
Transparent, Amazon Video
Let this be your binge guide, people! Six great comedies to watch during your leisure time. But I digress: Transparent has this category nailed.
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
American Crime, ABC
American Horror Story: Hotel, FX
Flesh and Bone, Starz
Wolf Hall, PBS
I know; you don’t recognizes the last two entries. That’s okay, they won’t win. American Horror Story will take home the prize here.
Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Drama
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Rami Malek, Mr. Robot
Wagner Moura, Narcos
Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul
Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan
Let’s give another goodbye to Jon Hamm, shall we?
Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy
Aziz Ansari, Master of None
Gael García Bernal, Mozart in the Jungle
Rob Lowe, The Grinder
Patrick Stewart, Blunt Talk
Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent
Jeffrey Tambor should once again charm the champagne-guzzling guests at the Beverly Hilton
Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television
Idris Elba, Luther
Oscar Isaac, Show Me a Hero
David Oyelowo, Nightingale
Mark Rylance, Wolf Hall
Patrick Wilson, Fargo
Let’s chant it together, ladies! Idris, Idris, Idris!
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television
Alan Cumming, The Good Wife
Damian Lewis, Wolf Hall
Ben Mendelson, Bloodline
Tobias Menzies, Outlander
Christian Slater, Mr. Robot
If only the Globe could be split in two hemispheres to honor Ben Mendelson and Tobias Menzies equally. I refuse to pick, because I love my children equally. But it’s between these two brilliant actors.
Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama
Caitriona Balfe, Outlander
Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder
Eva Green, Penny Dreadful
Taraji P. Henson, Empire
Robin Wright, House of Cards
I’m already assuming that Taraji P. Henson will have one of the best acceptance speeches of the night.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television
Uzo Aduba, Orange Is the New Black
Joanna Froggatt, Downton Abbey
Regina King, American Crime
Judith Light, Transparent
Maura Tierney, The Affair
This is an impressive roster of stars but I think Uzo Aduba will continue her run as an award show darling.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Kirsten Dunst, Fargo
Sarah Hay, Flesh and Bone
Felicity Huffman, American Crime
Queen Latifah, Bessie
It’s not enough to just get Lady Gaga at the Globes. You have to reward her, too! I pick the chanteuse for the win.
Best Performance By an Actress in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy
Jamie Lee Curtis, Scream Queens
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Gina Rodriguez, Jane the Virgin
Lily Tomlin, Grace and Frankie
Julia Louis-Dreyfus has dominated the kudos stage for, what, 45 years? I see Jamie Lee Curtis getting the love here.
