The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is famous for recognizing underrated TV series on their annual awards show, but which Golden Globe nominees would benefit the most from a win on Jan. 6? (See the full list of nominees here.)
The HFPA loves to honor the new “it” shows. “Killing Eve” would certainly fit that bill, and the BBC America series pulled off one of the rarest TV feats: Its ratings improved every week. Plus, star Sandra Oh will already be in the building.
“The Good Place” Despite critical acclaim (and an early 4th season pickup), Mike Schur’s afterlife comedy doesn’t have the trophies to match its quality, and it’s time for that to change. That mind-bending fall finale deserves an award all by itself.
“Kidding” This is Jim Carrey’s first Golden Globe nomination since 2005’s “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Carrey re-teamed with “Eternal Sunshine” director Michel Gondry for “Kidding” and you can’t ignore symmetry like that.
“GLOW” Netflix’s wrestling series has a lot of award nominations without any major wins. Alison Brie, nominated for the second year in a row, would certainly love to change that.
