Series like The Crown and Schitt’s Creek are the favorites to sweep the film and television awards.
The 2021 Golden Globes are already close and, although no one knows who will win, there are some favorites that are at the top of the betting and that have the critics and experts convinced that they will close the night with a few victories.
This year’s awards ignored great series like I May Destroy You and Bridgerton (one of the most-watched in Netflix history), but brought together a great selection of films, actors, and directors that broke it throughout 2020 (and early 2021) and they represent the best we saw during the year.
Among the clear favorites to win at the Golden Globes we have The Crown, Schitt’s Creek, Nomadlan and Anya Taylor-Joy , who this year took nominations for her enormous work as Beth Harmon in the drama Gambit de Dama and for her new version of Emma , the classic heroine of the Jane Austen books , but there is a chance that the awards will surprise us by recognizing the work of some unexpected projects.
Who are the favorites to win? Everyone has a series, actor or movie (some that you can even watch on streaming) for which they would be willing to put their hands in the fire, in addition to the criticism they give us some clues and if we add this to the predictions and opinions general, we can find a few names that could definitely get more than one recognition.
