Gazing into the Golden Globes Future

REC / RAVE / RANT


Spoilers For: Nothing... unless I really am psychic!





So Golden Globes nominations dropped last week and as with every year, people are talking about should and shouldn’t be on the list. Before, I go on a full-blown meltdown rage about the biggest snub IMO, here are my predictions for the categories in television. Disclaimer: I haven’t watched everything nominated, (a girl can only do so much) but I stay up to date with what the kids are talking about so I am still adequately qualified to gaze into my crystal ball and see the future.


I’ll check in post-Feb 28th to reflect on my hits and misses.

SUMMARY

For the most part, I think the GG will make the right choices… ahem that is with the choices they have given themselves. Schitt’s Creek will come out the big winner (little secret: I’ve never watched it) and maybe The Crown will pick up whatever is left. Shows like Emily in Paris, The Flight Attendant, and Zoey’s Playlist will (and should) just be honored to get an invite. Ozark may snag one big award but probably not.


Now to the real talk:


RAVE

Unorthodox better get everything it was nominated for or I will storm the Beverly Hilton… okay seriously not really. But that show and the lead actress, Shira Haas, was absolutely spectacular! It was so captivating and authentic, that I felt like I was truly a fly on the wall in these people’s lives. If you haven’t watched it, I urge you to binge it this weekend. Also, bonus points for it being set in my two favorite cities, New York and Berlin!


RANT

Award ceremonies can’t go on without some royally pissed off fans of the shows that were snubbed. I could go on about Bridgerton, or people still thinking James Corbin is relevant, and God knows I want to smack anyone who left out What We Do in the Shadows, but no the real crime committed was leaving off I May Destroy You. I’ve written about this show before and I will probably continue to think about it for many years to come. It’s the kind of show that makes it impossible for anyone to argue that television is for idiots, or has no artistic value. The show was a masterpiece and proves Michaela Coel’s genius. I’m simple at a loss for who could have caused this oversight. What?!?!?


Did You Agree with My Choices for this Year's Golden Globes?
