My bets: The 75th Golden Globe Nominations are in!

Hello Everyone!

Today the 75th Golden Globe Awards Nomination list was disclosed and I bring you the nominees and my previsions for the winners and/or which ones I would like to be the winners!

Since Award Season have began, I decided to do a segment of “My bets” for the award shows that I’ll be following upclose, and that starts with the Golden Globes! It will surely be a special night, because it is its 75th edition this year! I bet it will have a lot of “rewind clips” and surprise speeches for the industry and for the artists.

I will be talking only about the TV nominations because a) I didn’t saw 98% of the nominated movies for the motion picture categories; b) the other 2% didn’t premiere yet (at least in Portugal).

I’ll underline my bet/my wish winner and on the day after the awards, I’m make a new post comparing them and see my score card! Even for the categories that I don’t have an opinion about it (I didn’t watch all the tv series in the world) I’ll bet a winner!

And the nominees are…

Drama Series

The Crown

Game of Thrones

The Handmaid’s Tale

Stranger Things

This Is Us

I didn’t saw The Crown – I now, shame on me! But I will, maybe on this holiday season, since next week all the current series are going to Christmas hiatus – but I bet it’s on the same level of the other nominees. The others are all in my favorite TV show list, but for “the Drama situation” I think This is Us and The Handmaid’s Tale are the ones that fit the category the best!


Drama Actor


Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us

Jason Bateman, Ozark

Freddie Highmore, The Good Doctor

Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul

Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan

I didn’t saw Better Call Saul and Ray Donovan, so my bet is for Sterling (This is Us). I just want to let you know that I saw on some blogs and sites that Freddie Highmore was nominated for Bates Motel – that is INCORRECT! Although it could be possible, since Bates Motel had its final season this year and don’t get me wrong, Freddie deserves every award that exists for his role as Norman Bates, it was flawless! Which I can’t say about his Shawn Murphy on Good Doctor, because it resembles Norman too much, but I just want to make this clear.


Drama Actress

Caitriona Balfe, Outlander

Claire Foy, The Crown

Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Deuce

Katherine Langfor, 13 Reasons Way

Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale


Despite 13 Reason being awesome, Katherine was not that exciting. My bet is for Elizabeth Moss, to be fair with my previous statement and since I didn’t follow the other actress’ work. Although, Claire Foy’s role has been so praised that I think she could win.

Comedy or Musical Series


Master of None

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel


Will & Grace


Comedy or Musical Actor

Anthony Anderson, black-ish

Aziz Ansari, Master of None

Kevin Bacon, I Love Dick

William H. Macy, Shameless

Eric McCormack, Will & Grace


Comedy of Musical Actress

Pamela Adoln, Better Things

Alison Brie, GLOW

Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Issa Rae, Insecure

Frankie Shaw, SMILF


TV Movie or Miniseries

Big Little Lies


FEUD: Bette and Joan

The Sinner

Top of the Lake: China Girl

I don’t know the other pieces, but Big Little Lies was one of my favorite series this year!


TV Movie or Miniseries Actor

Robert De Niro, The Wizard of Lies

Jude Law, The Young Pope

Kyle MacLachlan, Twin Peaks

Ewan McGregor, Frago

Geoffrey Rush, Genius

I didn’t saw any of this miniseries, but from what I know from the industry and from fan debates, I think Jude Law should win but the award will go for Robert De Niro.


TV Movie or Miniseries Actress

Jessica Biel, The Sinner

Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies

Jessica Lange, FEUD: Bette and Joan

Susan Sarandon, FEUD: BEtte and Joan

Reese Witherspoon, Big Little Lies


TV Series Movie or Miniseries Supporting Actress

Laura Dern, Big Little Lies

Anne Dowd, Handmaid’s Tale

Chrissy Metz, This Is Us

Michaelle Pfeiffer, The Wizard of Lies

Shailene Woodley, Big Little Lies

Every one of them deserves this award, but I really want Chrissy Metz to win!!

TV Series Movie or Miniseries Supporting Actor

Daid Harbour, Stranger Things

Alfred Monlina, FEUD: Bette and Joan

Christian Slater, Mr. Robot

Alexander Skarsgard, Big Little lies

Savid Thewlis, Frago

I’m going to choose Alexander just because Christian Slater isn’t my favorite character from Mr. Robot, and since Rami Malek is not nominated, I’m giving another award to Big Little Lies.

The 75th Golden Globe Awards will be held on January 7 (2018) and will air live on NBC, presented by Seth Meyers (not totally thrilled by the host, but I’m sure it will be fun!)


Sorry for the long post, I hope you liked it!
