75th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2018 – TV NOMINATIONS

I’m ashamed. I was so in my own world that I almost forgot about television. I literally forgot the Golden Globes where on tomorrow. I didn’t even know who was hosting! (the lovely Seth Meyers!) and I haven’t written a lot about television in this past months. But I’m here!

FYI, if you’re as clueless as me, the Golden Globes air tomorrow January 7th on NBC at 5:00 p.m. PST / 8:00 p.m. EST.

I haven’t seen any (or almost any) of the movies that are nominated so I’m going to entirely skip that section. I’ll, of course, be concentrating on TV.To be fair, there are a lot of shows I haven’t seen yet. Mostly due to the studying, the busy holidays, overall lack of time and… oh yeah! I forgot about the existence of the awards! At least last year I remembered that the nominations were being announced!

Anyway, I’ll be showing the categories and guess which one will win! Just like the Emmys in 2016!

Also, can we just say it? These Globes are hella white! Very little diversity here… I’m kind of disappointed.

Without much further ado, let’s dive into it!


Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

At least in this category I’ve seen everything except Michelle’s Pfeiffer performance. Frankly, seeing how the Emmys went, it’s probable that Anne Dowd will win.

I’d also like both Chrissy Metz and Shailene Woodley to win because their performances was really good and unexpected, especially in Shailene’s case.


Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

supp role lim TV actor .PNGI loved Alexander Skargard’s performance in Big Little Lies. He was truly excellent. However much I like David Harbour and Christian Slater on their respective shows, I think it should go to Skargard.

Haven’t seen Fargo and I stopped watching Feud after the second episode.


Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

actress comedy.PNG

I recently saw Rachel Brosnahan’s performance in The Marvellous Mrs Maisel and I ADORE her! I didn’t even recognize her! She was the prostitute Doug was obsessed with on “House of Cards”!

“Better Things” this year was really good. Some episodes were so inspiring and fun, while others were a little bit meh. I’m not familiar with the other shows… “Glow” is in my watch list, as well as Insecure. I HAVE TO WATCH THEM!!!


Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

How can I decide between Aziz, Eric McCormack and Anthony Anderson? (I haven’t seen the other two).

Frankly, I’d go with Aziz. Season 2 of Master of None was amazing. I absolutely loved it. Although Black-ish themes and social issues are so important and Will and Grace has been sooooo political! I’ll still laughing about that Mike Pence portrait at the conversion camp in episode 4. AMAZING.

I can’t choose. I just… I can’t.


Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Drama

actress drama.PNG

Claire Foy.

The other actresses are probably amazing but aside from Katherine Langford and Elizabeth Moss, I haven’t seen the other women’s performance.

So… Claire Foy.


Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Drama

actor drama.PNG

Sterling K Brown.

No questions. No Doubts.

(and because I haven’t seen the other shows. Like… none of them)


Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television

lim tv actress.PNG

Nicole Kidman

The only one I haven’t seen was “The Sinner” but Kidman’s performance was PERFECT. She was so good. But she won at the Emmys, so maybe they’ll decide to give the award to somebody else. I don’t know. For me, it’s Nicole.


Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television

lim tv actor.PNG

No idea.


Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

lim tv.PNG

No idea.

Personally I’d go for Big Little Lies, since it’s the only one that I finished watching.


Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy

comedy.PNG

This is impossible. How can I choose?! I haven’t seen SMILF but even without taking it into consideration, it’s impossible.

For the quality, I’d say The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. For the cinematography, Master of None. For the political commentary, Will and Grace and Black-ish. For laugh out loud comedy, Will and Grace. For social issues, Master of None and Black-ish and Will and Grace.

So… I can’t.

Best Television Series – Drama

best tv drama.PNG

No.

No.

No.

Game Of Thrones was explosive this season. And not because of the plot (which was a bit meh). Stranger Things 2 left us TV lovers talking about it for AGES. This is Us was great. (It got too cheesy for my taste. I’ll still watch part B of season 2, but there are things that bothered me) and The Crown was sooooooooo fantastic! The Handmaid’s Tale gave us a social and political commentary that is unbelievably relevant.

I can’t decide. I’d be happy either way. (Well, not really if This Is Us wins. Sorry, I love the show so much but it’s not on the same level as the other ones)



Can’t wait for Sunday! I’ll be up all night watching it! Let me know what you think about the nominations and who you think is going to win.

Have a wonderful day and Happy Golden Globes night!

October 2017 Fall Premiere

In a couple of days it will be October and this can only mean one thing: another round of amazing tv show premieres.

And this months is just as good as September. I am still so upset that in the last post I forgot to add BBC’s “Doctor Foster”. I saw it trending on the date of its release (September 5th) and I didn’t know it was coming back for a second season so early. I was truly devastated.

This month 7 shows come back and I cannot wait.

Without much further ado, let’s get into it!

October 3rd: BLACK-ISH

image

I started watching this comedy this year, despite it being in its 3rd season. I enjoy it. I love that they talk about social issues in an accessible was to everyone. Season 3 episode 12 is probably the best. It’s about the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election. So incredible. Highly recommend it.

Anyway, it’s about a black familiy living in California and dealing with everyday life. Dre and Bow live with their 4 children and Dre’s parents. Who are completely crazy. Last season ended with Bow having their 5th child and I am really looking forward to see what’s going to happen to the Johnson’s next.

What I like about it, is not really the comedy. I don’t find it that funny, but it’s a show that helps white people understand black culture and at the same time, it portrays the normal black family living, with some of the same issues as everybody else.

What compelled me to go on with it, was the social component. They talk about race, sexism, education, culture and also a lot of stupid thing. If you are interested in a light-hearted comedy that you can watch while you do laundry (like I do), I definitely recommend it.

Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC



October 5th: SCANDAL

Scandal PosterAnother ABC show! This time produced and created by… Shonda Rhimes! The Queen of ABC dramas! This 7th will be Scandal’s last season and I haven’t watched it since season 5. Frankly, I don’t remember anything past season 3.

At one point it got too ridiculous, like Grey’s Anatomy. But with Grey’s, I am loyal to it. I liked Scandal. I bingewatched it while I was sick a couple of years ago but then I was interested in other things and I let go of it.

I might catch up on it or watch it “Bones Style”, watching the first episode of the season, the cliffhanger one in the middle and then the last 3 of the season. With this method you will have an overall knowledge of what happened. Who gives a shit about the rest.

(P.S. My app says I’m missing 28 episodes. I though they were more, so not too bad.)

Thursdays at 9/8C on ABC



October 11th: MR ROBOT

Mr Robot PosterThis show is crazy. So incredibly well made! Last season it left us all hanging, not knowing what was going to happen to Elliot and Mr Robot.

What I love most about the show is the directing. The subject in the frame is always off-centred. It gives a mysterious and documentary-like vibe and I adore it.

And can we PLEASE talk about Rami Malek? He is adorable and super talented. His performance is brilliant. Absolutely magnificent.

A warning, if you watch it and don’t understand anything, don’t worry. Nobody does. I recommended it to my cousing and he was so confused by it.

Nonetheless, it is a beautifully crafted series, another incredibly product of USA Network and I adore it.

Wednesdays at 10/9c on USA Network



OCTOBER 13th: JANE THE VIRGIN

My friend recommended this show to me a couple of months ago. I had had it in my “to watch” list since season 1, but I had forgoten about it.

This show is the best. It’s like an amazingly well-done parody of a spanish telenovela. Absolutely spectacular. The show is about Jane, a young aspiring writer who gets artificially inseminated. But as the title suggests, she is a virgin.

Risultati immagini per jane the virgin rafael

Her baby daddy? Handsome hotel owner Rafael. *wink wink*

The show is one absurdity after the other. Completely crazy. Visions, dreams, twin siblings, secret mothers, a drug lord, telenovelas, crazy fathers, evil stepmothers and more. It’s crazy. And I love it. I can’t wait to see what season 4 has in store for us!

Fridays at 9/8c on THE CW



OCTOBER 14th: DIRK GENTLY’s HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY

dirkgently_review_000-e1476988897269

I buddy-watched this show with my best friend and it was ridiculous. It wasn’t really my cup of tea at the beginning but I was so curious to see what was going to happen that in the end I really liked it.

It’s like a mix between Doctor Who and Sherlock. Dirk Gently is a reeeeeeeaaaaaally weird bloke who solves “holistic” crimes. He meets Todd Brotzman and he quickly becomes his reluctant and skeptical assistant. There is a psychopath, a girl who barks, an adorable corgi, time travel and an absurd friendship between a girl who kills everyone she meets and an electrician she decided to kidnap.

Completely mental. It’s a collaboration between the BBC and Netflix. Starring Samuel Barnett as Dirk and Elijah Wood as Todd, the show is utterly crazy. And incredibly funny. Can’t wait for the absurdity of season 2!

Saturdays at 9PM on BBC America



OCTOBER 15th: GOOD BEHAVIOR

Good Behavior PosterThis is probably the show I am most excited about. I discovered this serie last year, shortly after it came out.

Good Behavior is about Letty, a thief with a lot of drug and alcohol problems who has a dangerous encounter with a hit man named Javier. This show is so good. Really really good. I was obsessed with it last year. I watched it twice. consecutively. I wrote an unbelievably long review gushing about how much I love it.

I saw the trailer for this next instalment and it was INCREDIBLE. Michelle Dockery and Juan Diego Botto have an explosive chemistry. This is probably one of the best shows I’ve seen in 2016. And if you follow this blog, you know I watch A LOT of TV.

I highly recommend it. It’s sexy, full of passion, anger, issues but also recovery and survival. I have been wanting to watch it again for quite some time.

Sundays at 9/8c on TNT



OCTOBER 27th: STRANGER THINGS

Mine is quite an unpopular opinion, but I wasn’t a huge fan of Stranger Things. Sure, very well constructed and acted, but not something I could really really like.

My sister watched it the other day and really really liked it. Even though I wasn’t sure it would be something she would enjoy. Weird…

Anyway, to me it was overhyped. It’s a good show, don’t get me wrong. I love the details about the old horror movies from the 80s, the music, the clothes and some of the plot. But it’s too sci-fi. (says the girl who watches Doctor Who). But it is! I finished it because I wanted to see what was going to happen. That’s it.

The kid’s performances are magnificent. It’s probably worth watching for them.

I’ll be seeing it with my sister, probably.

October 27th on Netflix.



I hope you found some new show to watch! Let me know which one of your shows are coming back! I’d love to discover new series!

2016 In TV Shows

I told myself I wasn’t going to do this, but I’ve been working all week, I spent more than 72 hours non-stop with my family and relatives and I need to talk about my love for television and not a bunch of lies about my university career.

So many horrible things have happened in 2016, but for television this has been one of the best years EVER. At least for me. So, this is my 2016 narrated through my favourite TV shows. (there are more, obviously. But there are the new ones or those that made an impression).

JANUARY

This was a busy months for me: I did 4 exams at Uni and my shows came back from the holiday hiatus.

And what better way to start the year with a special episode (obviously set in the victoria age. Mark Gatiss is obsessed) of Sherlock called “The Abominable bride”.

After a devastating winter finale, “Suits” came back on January and it was incredible. The tension, the drama, the unknown… I’ve been a Suits fan since season 2 or 3 (aka when I discovered it existed) and I still can’t wait for it to come back after the break. Season 5 was unforgettable. Probably the best one.

But then my friend got me into “Black Mirror” and so I watched the fist few episode… which traumatized me. Obviously I needed a pick-me-up and although the title and the trailer seemed utterly stupid, watching Mozart in the Jungle was a great decision.

FEBRUARYLast Week Tonight with John Oliver

Lots more shows came back from hiatus, but they were suddenly cast aside: I had just discovered my GOD of satiric comedy (and let’s say it: journalism): JOHN OLIVER. I absolutely adore him and his show “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver”. I have watched some of his pieces so many times that I’m almost ashamed. (Can’t wait for him to come back on February 12th 2017!!!!)

MARCH

Another dull month (wait until April ’cause then you’ll think I’m crazy)…  The 4th season “House of Cards” was released on Netflix (still have to finish it, BTW) and my favourite italian TV show came back for 3 episodes! Based on the books by Andrea Camilleri, “Il commissario Montalbano” is about a police inspector in Sicily who tries to solve particularly difficult cases and he is often faced with the mafia. Absolutely stunning!

APRIL

Things here went downhill… I wasn’t mentally well… I hit a rough patch and I felt really really down. So of course I buried myself in tv shows.

My beloved “Game of Thronescame back for season 6 (the best one, in my opinion), HBO’s “Silicon Valley” premiered its 3rd season (LOVED IT).

I started 2 new series: “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “12 Monkeys”. Despite its good reviews, I didn’t really get into Kimmy Schmidt, but for the first time I enjoyed watching a supernatural/sci-fi show that wasn’t Doctor Who. I really enjoyed “12 Monkeys” and I’m definitely going to keep watching season 3 (rumour has it, it will air in June 2017).

April was also a months of old TV shows: I started watching “Will and Grace”. And I really really liked it! It was so innovative for its time, funny and totally weird.

The only downside of April: Limitless. The CBS show was cancelled. The show was kind of a sequel to Bradley Cooper’s movie, but the amazing thing was: there was actually Bradley Cooper in it! Looking absolutely stunning! It was the weirdest TV I had seen in a long time and I didn’t immediately get why it was great. Anyway, it got unfairly cancelled, so…

MAY

May was probably one of the worst ( 😉 ) months of the year. I had a terrible breakdown, I felt like shit for days and going out of the house had the same effect of someone stabbing me in the back.

BUT I discovered a new show. You’re the worst“. And to this moment I still can’t believe how much it helped me.

Every time I was feeling depressed, I would watch season 2, get into Gretchen’s shoes and allow myself to feel nothing. When I saw the character being in the same situation that I was (although she was a lot worse than me) made me feel less alone, it made me feel like it was okay for me to be like that. Definitely one of the most honest and real portrayal of a mental illness on TV.

JUNE

 

June means “holiday at the beach with other 6 people of my family” so I definitely packed my computer with TV shows.

Starting at home with “Unreal”, a show about the behind-the-scenes of a reality like “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette”. I though it was one of the most amazing thing ever. And I still do. I hate reality shows, but this behind-the-scenes look is fantastic. Don’t know why, but I loved it. It’s so clever. (Since as I’m writing this, it’s January 3rd, I’m so going to watch the new season of the Bachelor this year!)

I downloaded the 3rd season of “The Night Shift” just for the LOLs but I actually enjoyed it. It talked about police brutality, racism, discrimination, the war in Syria… Really politically and socially relevant. Didn’t think I would, but I enjoyed it. Definitely tuning it for season 4.

I don’t usually watch BBC Dramas, but “Doctor Foster” was definitely a must. I adore Suranne Jones! She played David Tennant’s love interest in “Single Father” in 2010 and I really really like her! She is a great actress! And in this 5-episode-series, she didn’t let me down! The story, though… ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Loved it. I also watched BBC’s “Thirteen”. It wasn’t as good as “Doctor Foster” but I recommend it! Very dark and obscure.

I got really really into “The Office” (the US version). I didn’t think I would, given the weaker episodes in season 1, but as soon as I got to season 2… WOW. I LOVED IT. I fell in love with John Krasinski and I truly understood Steve Carell’s brilliance. What a show!

If this list wasn’t enough, I started watching for the 5th time “Breaking Bad” and had a look at two pilots: “The Last Tycoon” (Amazon) and “Bloodline” (Netflix).

Thank God Amazon picked up”The Last Tycoon” for a full series because if not, I would have been really really pissed off. (And no more Matt Bomer in the 30s would have been a crime against ME).

JULY

After everything that happened in June, I took a step back. The brilliant “Mr Robot” premiered its second season (that I finished watching last week and it’s mind-blowing) and saw the first couple of episodes and I chose to watch the comedy “Parks and Recreation” (mainly because I was missing “The Office” and “Parks and Rec” has the same producer and some of the same writers).

AUGUST

Despite studying for my German exam, I got started watching almost all new series.

The only exception “Pretty Little Liars”, my guilty pleasure, that ended its 6th season. (season 7 premieres in April 2017, ICYMI.)

If you go back here on my blog, you can see my detailed reviews and opinions on these following shows: I started watching “Stranger Things” because everyone was obsessed… Meh.

For the first year I watched and really REALLY got into “The Great British Bake Off”… Obviously I started watching it and then it got cancelled and moved to channel 4, but never mind that.

Then there was ITV’s “Victoria”… Utterly enjoyed it. Jenna Coleman did a wonderful performance.

After in the middle of all of this: FOX’s “Brooklyn Nine Nine”.

SEPTEMBER

TV show wise, probably the best months along with May.

Waiting for my regular shows (Modern Family, New Girl, Grey’s Anatomy…) to come back I found two other series, and one of them changed me. I am obviously talking about “This is us”. And FX’s “Better Things”.

I reviewed This Is Us here on my blog, but I feel like I can’t make it justice. I think the only way is for you, yes you who is reading this now, to go watch it. It will tear you apart. I didn’t even know I was capable of feeling some of the emotions that the show evoked. A MUST of 2016.

OCTOBER

friends

Shittiest months of the year. Got obsessed with “Friends”. Don’t have a single regret.

 

NOVEMBER

The day I had been waiting for more that a year finally arrived and on November 4th I was finally able to watch “The Crown”. AND WHAT A MASTERPIECE. Matt Smith is brilliant in it! I had missed him so much!

But in late November I discovered the show that destroyed me almost (but not really) as much as “This is us”: Gilmore Girls.

After the mind-blowing discovery that Jack from “This is Us” was Jess from “Gilmore Girls” (and it took me a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time to figure that out), I was hooked. Still am actually.

DECEMBER

Finally! The last months! This has been a never-ending post!

I got into two new Tv shows! “Westworld” and I managed to watch the first two episodes of “The Affair” even though it came out in November. (I’m still stuck on episode two, BTW).

A memorable thing that happened in December was the last three episodes of “This Is Us” that I hadn’t seen as they came out, ’cause frankly… I was not emotionally ready for them. I kid you not, I cried for three hours straight. NEVER in my life, I had ever cried this much. It was one of the most liberating feelings in the world. I hate it and loved it at the same time.


This year was bad: from terrorist attacks, to shootings, to celebrity’s deaths (George Micheal I’ll miss you) , to arrogant narcissistic bigot orange racists being elected as President of the United States Of America.

Television wise, this has been a great year. Full of amazing shows, talented NEW and diverse actors and fantastic writers.

I probably forgot a lot of series I glanced at in this past year, but apparently they weren’t worth remembering!

I hope you had a fantastic year and I wish all of you an even better one! Happy 2017!

Georgia   🙂 ❤

 

P.S. Definitely not going to write this in one sitting next time! Creating the “2017 in Tv shows” post right now!

 

 

 

Golden Globes 2017 – TV Nominations

I completely forgot the Golden Globes nomination were coming out on December 12th! I just opened Twitter and there they were!

In case you missed it, I talked about the nominations for the Emmys a couple of months ago and I LOVED doing it! So I’m here, writing this. I haven’t even looked at most of the nominees so this is my actual first impression!

You can read the complete list on Variety’s website.

The ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon and it will be transmitted on NBC on January 8th… So let’s dive into it!


BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA

Wow, what a category. I literally can’t choose a winner. I am particularly happy because I have seen everything in this category (I’m on ep 1 of Westworld and a review will be coming up in the following weeks, but nevermind).

Let’s be frank: Game of Thrones had won a lot of prices so… Yeah, let’s give space to shows like The Crown and This is Us. They are new, incredibly well-made and at their first nomination.  This Is Us has made me feel things I didn’t even know I was capable of experiencing.

This might be an unpopular opinion but for me Stranger Things was over-hyped. I didn’t find it as good as people said it was. I was just: “Meh”.

LAST YEAR WINNER: MR. ROBOT

MY WINNER: This Is Us. (Sorry “The Crown”… If it were possible, I would award the globe to both the shows, but it’s not possible so…)


BEST TELEVISION SERIES – MUSICAL OR COMEDY

I haven’t seen “Atlanta” and “Black-ish”, but out of the left three, “Mozart in the Jungle”. Without. A. Single. Doubt.

I have just finished season 3 and it’s amazing. Absolutely perfectly made. Maybe even better than the other two… No, no, sorry: they are all beautiful.

I’m not a huge fan or Transparent or Veep, so…

MY WINNER: Mozart In The Jungle

LAST YEAR WINNER: Mozart in The Jungle


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA

  • RAMI MALEK – “Mr Robot”
  • BOB ODENKIRK – “Better Call Saul”
  • MATTHEW RHYS – “The Americans”
  • LIEV SCHREIBER – “Ray Donovan”
  • BILLY BOB THORNTON – “Goliath”

Just like at the Emmys, I haven’t seen “Ray Donovan”, “Goliath” and “Better Call Saul” (I haven’t even finished season 5 of Breaking Bad)

But out of the two I know, Rami Malek is my choice. I like Rhys, he’s a good actor, but I got bored with “The Americans” in season 2 and stopped watching, so…

MY WINNER: RAMI MALEK – “Mr Robot”

LAST YEAR WINNER: Jon Hamm – “Mad Men”


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA:

  • CAITRIONA BALFE – “Outlander”
  • CLAIRE FOY – “The Crown”
  • KERI RUSSEL – “The Americans”
  • WINONA RYDER – “Stranger Things”
  • EVAN RACHEL WOOD – “Westworld”

Luckily, “Outlander” is the only one I am not familiar with, so… yay.

Thinking about the performances of these actress, one that made an impact on me, as Claire Foy’s. Her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth is spectacular.

But Evan Rachel Wood was also very good. I feel like her role is not easy to portray: the emotions, the physical aspect, the repetitiveness…

Keri Russel and Winona Ryder are amazing actresses but my vote (as if I could actually cast it) goes to:

MY WINNER: CLAIRE FOY – “The Crown”

LAST YEAR WINNER: TARAJI P. HENSON – “Empire”


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN  TELEVISION SERIES – MUSICAL OR COMEDY:

  • ANTHONY ANDERSON – “Black-ish”
  • GAEL GARCIA BERNAL – “Mozart in the Jungle”
  • DONALD GLOVER – “Atlanta”
  • NICK NOLTE – “Graves”
  • JEFFREY TAMBOR – “Transparent”

Sadly I am only familiar with Gael Garcia Bernal and Jeffrey Tambor’s work… And this is tough… They are both incredibly talented… But I’m staying loyal to the Maestro.

MY WINNER: GAEL GARCIA BERNAL – “Mozart in the Jungle”

LAST YEAR WINNER: GAEL GARCIA BERNAL – “Mozart in the Jungle”


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN  TELEVISION SERIES – MUSICAL OR COMEDY:

  • RACHEL BLOOM – “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”
  • JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS – “Veep”
  • SARAH JESSICA PARKER – “Divorce”
  • ISSA RAE – “Insecure”
  • GINA RODRIGUEZ – “Jane The Virgin”
  • TRACEE ELLIS-ROSS – “Black-ish”

I have only seen “Veep”, but if the Emmy’s are of any indication, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is going to win again, so…

POSSIBLE WINNER: JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS – “Veep”

LAST YEAR WINNER: RACHEL BLOOM – “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”


BEST LIMITED SERIES:

  • AMERICAN CRIME
  • THE DRESSER
  • THE NIGHT MANAGER
  • THE NIGHT OF
  • THE PEOPLE VS O.J. SIMPSON: AMERICAN CRIME STORY

Frankly I don’t have an opinion in this category. I have seen only “The Night Manager” (Yes, I haven’t seen O.J.! I am probably the only tv obsessed person who hasn’t seen it)

MY WINNER: I don’t care … sorry.

LAST YEAR WINNER: WOLF HALL


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION:

  • RIZ AHMED – “The Night Of”
  • BRYAN CRANSON – “All The Way”
  • TOM HIDDLESTON – “The Night Manager”
  • JOHN TURTURRO – “The Night Of”
  • COURTNEY B. VANCE – “The People VS O.J. Simpson: Amerian Crime Story”

I don’t have an opinion in this category either..

I love Bryan Cranston and he is an amazing actor and I’m sure he did an amazing job, bur having not seen “All the Way”, I can’t really judge.

Tom Hiddleston was also good on “The Night Manager”, but… I don’t know.

LAST YEAR’S WINNER: OSCAR ISAAC  “Show Me a Hero”


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION:

  • OLIVIA COLEMAN – “The Night Manager”
  • LENA HEADEY – “Game Of Thrones”
  • CHRISSY METZ – “This Is Us”
  • MANDY MOORE – “This Is Us”
  • KERRY WASHINGTON – “Confirmation”

Wow, what a group of extremely talented women! Frankly I LOVE them all.

The only series I haven’t seen is “Confirmation”, but as for Bryan Cranston, I trust Kerry, but I’m going to choose from what I know… But I DON’T know!

I can’t choose!!!! Both Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz are extraordinary of “This is Us”… truly legendary.

Lena Headey is just… come on… Queen Cersei. And I love her.

But how could I not choose Olivia Coleman?! She is just so good! She was amazing on “The Night Manager!”

MY WINNER: Don’t make me choose. Please. Don’t. Press Association, please give to these amazing ladies 5 Globes! Please.

LAST YEAR’S WINNER: LADY GAGA – “American Horror Story”


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE FOR TELEVISION:

  • FELICITY HUFFMAN – “American Crime”
  • RILEY KEOUGH – “The Girlfriend Experience”
  • SARAH PAULSON – “The People VS O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”
  • CHARLOTTE RAMPLING – “London Spy”
  • THANDIE NEWTON – “Westworld”

I am kind of angry I haven’t seen any on these except “Westworld”…

LAST YEAR’S WINNER: MAURA TIERNEY – “The Affair”


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE FOR TELEVISION:

  • STERLING K BROWN – “The People VS O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”
  • HUGH LAURIE – “The Night Manager”
  • JOHN LITHGOW – “The Crown”
  • CHRISTIAN SLATER – “Mr Robot”
  • JOHN TRAVOLTA – “The People VS O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”

At least in this category I know most actors.

Sterling K Brown also plays Randall on “This is us” and he is utterly brilliant. John Lithgow in “The Crown” is an amazing Winston Churchill. Great performance!

Christian Slater on Mr. Robot is very good and very disturbing at the same time. Half the time I’m watching, I am so scared of him. Literally terrified.

MY WINNER: I can’t decide!!! Shoot… John Lithgow? Christian Slater? Help. Please.

LAST YEARS WINNER: CHRISTIAN SLATER – “Mr Robot”

 



Hope you like this post! Let me know your opinion and who you think is going to win!
