The TV Races to Watch

With four nominations each, Netflix's drama series The Crown and Netflix’s limited series Unbelievable are neck-and-neck for the most nominations in the television category.

The Golden Globes will likely follow the 2019 Emmy’s example and give the award for Best Television Series for a Musical or Comedy to Fleabag, whose star and creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge will likely also win for Best Actress for the series. Without Game of Thrones in the running, The Crown, Succession, Big Little Lies, Killing Eve, or Apple TV Plus’s The Morning Show could all easily win for Best Television Series in the Drama category.

Big Film Races to See

Netflix dominated the film category this year with Marriage Story receiving six nominations and The Irishman (which had a limited release in theaters before being released on Netflix) receiving five. Either The Irishman or Marriage Story could win for Best Motion Picture in a Drama, while Knives Out and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are likely frontrunners for Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical.

Eddie Murphy, who recently returned to SNL to host the Holiday episode, is predicted to wine Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for Dolemite is My Name. Meanwhile in the Foreign Language Film category, the indie hit from South Korea, Parasite, is slotted to take home the gold.

Look For Tom Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres

Tom Hanks will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, while Ellen DeGeneres will receive the Carol Burnett Award.
