The 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards take place on Sunday, Jan. 10 at 8 p.m. ET. In a field of nominees stacked with newbies and veterans alike, here’s who we expect to take home the prizes.
Best Television Series, Drama
Empire (Fox) | Game of Thrones (HBO) | Mr. Robot (USA) | Narcos (Netflix) | Outlander (Starz)
The Golden Globes loves to surprise viewers by awarding new shows (like last year’s The Affair and Brooklyn Nine-Nine in 2014). While Empire may have been the breakout drama of 2015, Mr. Robot should steal the win as the prestige show to watch going forward.
Best Actor, Television Drama
Jon Hamm, Mad Men | Rami Malek, Mr. Robot | Wagner Moura, Narcos |Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul | Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan
Jon Hamm already won the Emmy he so deserved. The Golden Globes have a long history of rewarding newcomers (last year’s Gina Rodriguez in Jane the Virgin, for instance) and Rami Malek deserves an award for his complex portrayal of a coder who may just be losing his mind.
Best Supporting Actor, Television Series
Alan Cumming, The Good Wife | Damian Lewis, Wolf Hall | Ben Mendelsohn, Bloodline | Tobias Menzies, Outlander | Christian Slater, Mr. Robot
Mendelson earned critical raves for his turn as the black sheep brother in Bloodline, and he’ll get the recognition the Emmys wouldn’t give him at the Globes.
