Television and streaming have been a saving grace for many of us during the last year of isolation. And this Sunday, we can finally give some well-deserved recognition to our favorite shows of 2020. Award season is ramping up and it’s time to make our way to the Golden Globes!

This year’s NBC event will be broadcasting live from coast to coast, with Tina Fey at New York’s Rainbow Room and Amy Poehler in the Beverly Hills Hilton. Nominees, winners, and special honors will be tuning in from all around the world.

 

Best Television Series, Drama

The CrownNetflix

Lovecraft CountryHBO

The MandalorianDisney+

OzarkNetflix

RatchedNetflix

Celeb opinion: The Crown and The Mandalorian are tied for this one. The Mandalorian is pure entertainment whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, but can anything beat the stories and details of The Crown?

 

Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical

Emily in ParisNetflix

The Flight AttendantHBO

The GreatHulu

Schitt’s CreekNetflix

Ted LassoApple TV

Celeb opinion: No doubt that Schitt’s Creek will take this one home, but hopefully this will bring more awareness to other hilarious favorites like Ted Lasso and The Great!

 

Best Limited Series, Anthology or TV Movie

Normal PeopleHulu

The Queen’s GambitNetflix

The UndoingHBO

UnorthodoxNetflix

Celeb opinion: I completely understand everyone’s obsession with The Queen’s Gambit – but those people probably never experienced Normal People. The show should win an award for the way it stomped on viewers’ hearts and made us feel things we’ve never felt.

 

Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama

Olivia Colman – The Crown

Jodie Comer – Killing Eve

Emma Corrin – The Crown

Laura Linney – Ozark

Sarah Paulson – Ratched

Celeb opinion: Olivia Colman can do no wrong, and her playing the Queen of England is so apropos. We bow down.

 

Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series, Drama

Jason Bateman – Ozark

Josh O’Connor – The Crown

Bob Odenkirk Better Call Saul

Al Pacino – Hunters

Matthew Rhys– Perry Mason

Celeb opinion: I originally thought this would be a clean-cut, new school vs. old school decision – Bateman and Pacino both fight to be head honchos in their respective shows and do it well. But then I caved to the hype and watched HBO’s Perry Mason, coming to the conclusion that Matthew Rhys could easily beat both of these guys for the gold.

 

Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical

Lily Collins – Emily in Paris

Kaley Cuoco The Flight Attendant

Elle Fanning – The Great

Jane Levy – Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Catherine O’Hara – Schitt’s Creek

Celeb opinion: Catherine O’Hara never seizes to amaze. It would be an honor if someone could beat her in this category, but highly unlikely. Just as funny as she was decades ago, O’Hara deserves all the awards for keeping us smiling for so long.

 

Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical

Don Cheadle – Black Monday

Nicholas Hoult – The Great

Eugene Levy Schitt’s Creek

Jason Sudeikis – Ted Lasso

Ramy Youssef – Ramy

Celeb opinion: This one is tough. Ted Lasso is the best character that Sudeikis has ever played, and Hoult has grown into such a star since that lanky teen on Skins, but Youssef might take the cake for his performance in his passion project.

 

Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology or TV Movie

Cate Blanchett – Mrs. America

Daisy Edgar-Jones – Normal People

Shira Haas – Unorthodox

Nicole Kidman – The Undoing

Anya Taylor-Joy – The Queen’s Gambit

Celeb opinion: While Ana Taylor-Joy deserves and will probably be victor of this category, we can’t sleep on Shira Haas’ captivating performance as she flees her ultra-orthodox community for a new life in Berlin.  

 

Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology or TV Movie

Bryan Cranston – Your Honour

Jeff Daniels – The Comedy Rule

Hugh Grant The Undoing

Ethan Hawke – The Good Lord Bird

Mark Ruffalo – I Know This Much Is True

Celeb opinion: The only thing better than one Mark Ruffalo is two Mark Ruffalo’s – and HBO’s ‘I Know This Much Is True’ gives us just that in the form of twin brothers. The contrast that Ruffalo shows between the two brothers is intense, with one suffering from a serious mental illness and the other trying to help as best he can.

 

Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series

Gillian Anderson The Crown

Helena Bonham Carter – The Crown

Julia Garner – Ozark

Annie Murphy Schitt’s Creek

Cynthia Nixon – Ratched

Celeb opinion: While dominating roles as historical figures is no easy feat, the underdog may deserve this one! Playing the pampered sister in Schitt’s Creek, Annie Murphy delivers some of the show’s greatest lines.

 

Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series

John Boyega – Small Axe, “Red, White and Blue”

Daniel Levy Schitt’s Creek

Brendan Gleeson – The Comey Rule

Jim Parsons – Hollywood

Donald Sutherland The Undoing

Celeb opinion: Levy will most likely take home the win for his performance in his television brainchild, but a lot of eyes are on Boyega and his character’s experiences in London’s West Indian community.
