2020 Golden Globe Predictions

Updated February 26th, 2021

Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)

This category is looking like a two man race between Jason Sudeikis and Eugene Levy. There is the possibility that Schitt’s Creek remains the juggernaut that it was at the Emmys and dominates the Comedy categories, but the Globes like to spread their awards around. Sudeikis is the kind of actor that everyone has always loved, and with a show that has been universally adored with the surge in popularity that Ted Lasso has received, we think the Globes will lean his direction, especially if they don’t give the series the win in the main category. 

1. Jason Sudeikis - Ted Lasso

Follows US American Football coach Ted Lasso heading to the UK to manage a struggling London football team in the top flight of English football.

2. Eugene Levy - Schitt’s Creek

In the sitcom "Schitt's Creek," a wealthy couple -- video store magnate Johnny and his soap opera star wife Moira -- suddenly find themselves completely broke. With only one remaining asset, a small town called Schitt's Creek, which the Roses bought years earlier as a joke, this once-wealthy couple must give up life as they know it. With their two spoiled children in tow and their pampered lives behind them, the Rose family is forced to face their newfound poverty head-on and come together as a family to survive.​

3. Nicholas Hoult - The Great

A royal woman living in rural Russia during the 18th century is forced to choose between her own personal happiness and the future of Russia, when she marries an Emperor.
