The TV Races to Watch
While TV casts are usually joked about being seated in the nosebleed section, some of the most highly anticipated and competitive races are in that category.
Best Television Series for Drama with “Killing Eve” and “The Bodyguard,” are both vying for a golden statue. Sandra Oh is also nominated for best actress for her role in “Killing Eve.” In the Best Television Series for a Musical or Comedy, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is competing again, this year against new series “Barry” and “the Kominsky Method.” “Maisel” won two awards last year, with star Rachel Brosnahan championing women's stories in her viral speech.
Big Film Races to See
IMDB predicts that "A Star is Born" and "Green Book" will win for Best Motion Picture in a Drama and Comedy or Musical, respectfully. However, critics favorite “The Favourite” and “Vice,” as well as box office hits “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Black Panther” for the best Motion Picture categories.
A “Star is Born” is also in the Best Actress category with Lady Gaga nominated, however Glenn Close, “The Wife,” and Nicole Kidman, “Destroyer,” also pose strong competition.
Look For Female Directors Nominated
Last year, Natalie Portman presented the award for best Director of a Motion Picture and called attention to gender inequality when she announced "Here are the all-male nominees" for the category. And this year, we see another 100 percent masculine round of nominees with female director hopefuls like Karyn Kuasama, “Destroyer,” and Josie Rourke, “Mary Queen of Scotts,” left without any nominations.
Since the first Golden Globe Awards in 1944, only 5 female directors have been nominated with only Barbra Streisand winning in 1984 for her direction of “Yentl.”
New Awards to Check-Out
Carol Burnett will receive the inaugural Carol Burnett Award which recognizes individuals that have left a major impact on television. Her best known work is for the “Carol Burnett Show,” which received 25 Emmy Awards over its 11 year run. Burnett herself already has a Kennedy Center Honor, the Mark Twain Prize for Humor, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Though the ceremony will be available on NBC Live for those with a cable or satellite subscription, it will not be live-streamed on the NBC Facebook page.
