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
I 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
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
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
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
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
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Personally I’d go for Big Little Lies, since it’s the only one that I finished watching.
Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy
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
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!
