Now that the Golden Globes are just around the corner it’s time for my final predictions. Who will go home with a trophy?
After the un-televised ceremony last year, which happened due to a lot of incidents around the Hollywood Foreign Press Academy, the Golden Globes are back. After a bunch of changes at the institute and the addition of more than a hundred new members, the Golden Globes are back to being televised.
On December 12, 2022, the HFPA announced the film and television categories nominees roughly a month before the winner ceremony on January 10, 2023. Now that the Globes are just around the corner, it’s time for my final winner predictions.
For this article we focus on the Series categories and without further ado, let’s take a look at the nominees (those are ranked in alphabetical order, with my predicted winners stated below):
Nominees: Better Call Saul, House of the Dragon, Ozark, Severance, The Crown
Predicted Winner: I think the highly acclaimed new Apple TV+ show Severance will take the win. The Crown underperformed with its nominations, just like Better Call Saul, House of the Dragon and Ozark doesn’t seem to be on anyone’s minds anymore, especially when talking about the possibility to win.
Nominees: Abbot Elementary, Hacks, Only Murders in the Building, The Bear, Wednesday
Predicted Winner: The beloved and Emmy-winning sitcom Abbot Elementary seems like the obvious choice.
TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Black Bird, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Pam and Tommy, The Dropout, The White Lotus: Sicily
Predicted Winner: This award should go to Sicily as The White Lotus definitely is the talk of the town.
ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Adam Scott – Severance, Bob Odenkirk – Better Call Saul, Diego Luna – Andor, Jeff Bridges – The Old Man, Kevin Costner – Yellowstone
Predicted Winner: Back in December I predicted Severance‘s Adam Scott to take the win here, but I feel like Bob Odenkirk is unbeatable here for his performance in the last season of Better Call Saul.
ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Emma D’Arcy – House of the Dragon, Hilary Swank – Alaska Daily, Imelda Staunton – The Crown, Laura Linney – Ozark, Zendaya – Euphoria
Predicted Winner: Even though the Golden Globes seemingly aren’t the biggest fans of Euphoria, I think Zendaya is just too strong to be ignored here.
ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES
Nominees: Bill Hader – Barry, Donald Glover – Atlanta, Jeremy Allen White – The Bear, Martin Short – Only Murders in the Building, Steve Martin – Only Murders in the Building
Predicted Winner: I think newcomer Jeremy Allen White will take the win here. While he has strong competitors in Bill Hader, who was terribly snubbed at this year’s Emmys and the two Only Murders actors, I think no one comes close to White. Hader seemingly isn’t on people’s radar anymore and Short and Martin are likely vote-splitting as every member likes one of the two more than the other, meaning that no one ever reaches enough votes for a win.
ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES
Nominees: Jean Smart – Hacks, Jenna Ortega – Wednesday, Kaley Cuoco – The Flight Attendant, Quinta Brunson – Abbott Elementary
Predicted Winner: I already mentioned in my last predictions piece, that I could see Jenna Ortega surprise here, and honestly I’m sticking with it. Additionally, the consensus shifted to Ortega being the frontrunner.
ACTOR IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Andrew Garfield – Under the Banner of Heaven, Colin Firth –The Staircase, Evan Peters – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Sebastian Stan – Pam and Tommy, Taron Egerton – Black Bird
Predicted Winner: It’s Evan Peters. Like, basically no contention. He is going to sweep this category all season.
ACTRESS IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Amanda Seyfried – The Dropout, Jessica Chastain – George and Tammy, Julia Garner – Inventing Anna, Julia Roberts – Gaslit, Lily James – Pam and Tommy
Predicted Winner: While Amanda Seyfried seems like the safe bet here, I’m going on a limb and predicting Jessica Chastain for the new show George & Tammy.
SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY/DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Henry Winkler – Barry, John Lithgow – The Old Man, John Turturro – Severance, Jonathan Pryce – The Crown, Tyler James Williams – Abbott Elementary
Predicted Winner: This could be John Turturro’s to lose. His performance in Severance is beloved and with Severance likely winning Best Drama Series, he’d be the frontrunner.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY/DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Elizabeth Debicki – The Crown, Hannah Einbinder – Hacks, Janelle James – Abbott Elementary, Julia Garner – Ozark, Sheryl Lee Ralph – Abbott Elementary
Predicted Winner: After Sheryl Lee Ralph won the Emmy for her performance, it seems pretty likely that she’ll also win the Golden Globe.
SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Domnhnall Gleeson – The Patient, F. Murray Abraham – The White Lotus: Sicily, Paul Walter Hauser – Black Bird, Richard Jenkins – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Seth Rogen – Pam and Tommy
Predicted Winner: Might be going on a limb here, but I’m changing my prediction from F. Murray Abraham to Paul Walter Hauser, as three wins for The White Lotus feel a bit too much and Walter Hauser’s performance in the acclaimed limited series Black Bird stuck with people.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Aubrey Plaza – The White Lotus: Sicily, Claire Danes – Fleishman is in Trouble, Daisy Edgar-Jones – Under the Banner of Heaven, Jennifer Coolidge – The White Lotus: Sicily, Niecy Nash-Betts – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story
Predicted Winner: After her Emmy Win it seems more than likely that The White Lotus will keep its winning streak with a win for Jennifer Coolidge.
The Golden Globes take place on January 10, 2023.
