Golden Globes: Can Hulu earn its first TV movie/limited series win?


Much like HBO and Netflix, Hulu has had a horse in each of the last three Golden Globe races for Best TV Movie/Limited Series, but it stands out from the trio in that none of its non-continuing shows reached the winner’s circle. . So far, the streamer’s limited series have fallen short of those from HBO (“Chernobyl” on “Catch-22”), Netflix (“The Queen’s Gambit” on “Normal People”) and Amazon ( “The Underground Railroad” over “Dopesick”), but, with an abundance of viable contenders in its 2022 library, a victory may be on the horizon.

Gold Derby’s current Golden Globe predictions indicate Hulu will likely receive at least two Best TV Movie/Limited Series nominations this year, for “The Dropout” and “Pam and Tommy.” The former is currently ranked second on our list under HBO’s “The White Lotus: Sicily,” while the latter is in fourth place, just behind Apple TV+’s “Black Bird.” No Apple TV+ program has ever been nominated in this category, but its “The Morning Show” and “Ted Lasso” have competed for Best Drama Series and Best Comedy Series, respectively.

Hulu limited series “Welcome to Chippendales” and “The Patient” take sixth and eighth places according to our ratings, while “Fresh” (24th) is the second-highest-ranked TV movie on our list, just two slots below. “Hocus” from Disney+. Pocus 2. With Netflix’s ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ and Amazon’s ‘The English’ currently rounding out our top eight, it’s quite possible that Hulu will end up claiming the majority of the five spots in this category’s 2023 lineup. .

We further anticipate that Hulu will receive multiple Best TV Movie/Limited Actress Golden Globe nominations this year, with the top two contenders being Amanda Seyfried (“The Stall”) and Lily James (“Pam and Tommy”). As things stand, “Pam and Tommy” should also make some clean offers in the male lead (Sebastian Stan) and supporting (Seth Rogen) categories, reflecting the hearty love it received from this year’s Emmy voters. Other very possible acting Golden Globe nominees for Hulu limited series include ‘The Patient’ star Steve Carell and the “Welcome to Chippendales” cast members Kumail Nanjiani, Murray Bartlett and Juliet Lewis.

As for the Best Drama Series category, Hulu’s current best chance for a win lies with “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which won the award for its first season in 2018. Its “Only Murders in the Building” (nominated in 2022) and “The Bear” are both set to win reviews for Best Comedy Series this year, while its “Reservation Dogs” (also recognized here in 2022) is ranked ninth on that list. With all of these cards in play, the likely strong airplay of Hulu’s top TV movie/limited series can only count for a fraction of its seemingly imminent Golden Globes dominance.

The nominations for the 80th Golden Globes will be revealed on Monday, December 12. The awards ceremony will air on NBC and air on Peacock on Tuesday, January 10.
