See our breakdown of each Golden Globes TV category below. The team went for some seemingly obvious choices along with a few educated NGNG predictions for the curveballs that the Globes throw in every year. Be on the lookout for more TV coverage from Awards Radar coming soon!

Schitt's Creek (Pop)

The first category opens up the big discussion of the night, which is, how well is Schitt’s Creek going to perform? While it’s hard to see the beloved comedy having as dominant a sweep as it did at the Emmys, it’s still safe to say that it’ll be picking up at least a couple of awards. The question then becomes, where? With an interesting category, we think Dan Levy takes the prize here, although if he’s going to be defeated we’re placing our bets on Brendan Gleeson in the very showy role of a former President. 

1. Dan 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.

2. Brendan Gleeson - The Comey Rule

A Belgian teenager hatches a plot to kill his teacher after embracing an extremist interpretation of the Quran.

3. John Boyega - Small Axe

Based on the real-life experiences of London's West Indian community between 1969 and 1982.

4. Donald Sutherland - The Undoing

A therapist's life unravels after she learns that her husband might be responsible for a widespread disaster.

5. Jim Parsons - Hollywood

In post-World War II Hollywood, aspiring actors and filmmakers will do almost anything to make their showbiz dreams come true.
