HBO’s Westworld is a science fiction Western thriller that follows the guests and robot hosts of a Western-style theme park where people can live out their wildest Wild West fantasies, but not all is as it seems on the surface. Westworld has been a fan favorite, building a loyal fandom through its unpredictable storylines and outstanding writing, directing, and performances. The show is also nominated for Best Performance in a Television Series – Drama (Evan Rachel Wood as Delores Abernathy) and Best Supporting Performance in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film (Thandie Newton as Maeve Millay).
Stranger Things (Netflix)
Netflix’s Stranger Things is a science fiction horror about a 12-year-old boy who mysteriously goes missing. His mother and his three friends try to find the boy but the mysteries deepen when an unusual stranger arrives – a young girl with psychokinetic powers. Fans and critics alike loved the show for its deep references to ’80s classic horror and pop culture. Stranger Things is also nominated for Best Performance in a Television Series – Drama (Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers).
This Is Us (NBC)
NBC’s This Is Us is a comedy-drama with an ensemble cast. It follows several different people who share the same birthday and the ways in which their lives are similar and different. Critics love This Is Us for its emotionally resonant stories and smart dialogue. Two actresses are also nominated for Golden Globes for Best Supporting Performance in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film (Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore).
Game of Thrones (HBO)
In case you’ve been living under a rock, HBO’s Game of Thrones is one hell of a powerhouse fantasy drama. With a massive fan following and a huge ratings winner for the network, in a competitive field, this has to be the favorite, particularly given the show has been nominated in the same category in 2012, 2015, and 2016 but has yet to win. Game of Thrones has only won one Golden Globe in the past, which was Peter Dinklage for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film in 2012. This year, the show is also nominated for Best Supporting Performance in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film (Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister).
Which show will it be? The Golden Globes 2017 air this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC, hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The red carpet will stream on Twitter starting at 6 p.m. ET.
