2020 Golden Globe Predictions
Updated February 26th, 2021
This one feels a bit easier to predict than the other two series categories. At least on paper, The Crown seems to be far and away the winner. That’s where the Globes can trick you sometimes though, and the question becomes what could the potential spoiler be. While Ozark has the most nominations out of the remaining four, and The Mandalorian is maybe the most-discussed, we think that Ratched feels the most on brand choice for the Globes, partly because it’s the least well-received critically. They clearly love the show, with nominations for Paulson and Nixon, so if anything can surprise on Sunday night, we’re betting on Ratched.
1. The Crown
Based on an award-winning play ("The Audience") by showrunner Peter Morgan, this lavish, Netflix-original drama chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times. The series begins with an inside look at the early reign of the queen, who ascended the throne at age 25 after the death of her father, King George VI. As the decades pass, personal intrigues, romances, and political rivalries are revealed that played a big role in events that shaped the later years of the 20th century.
In 1947, Mildred Ratched begins working as a nurse at a leading psychiatric hospital. But beneath her stylish exterior lurks a growing darkness.
3. The Mandalorian
The travels of a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
A financial advisor drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder money to appease a drug boss.
5. Lovecraft Country
A young African-American travels across the U.S. in the 1950s in search of his missing father.
