Last year’s Globes winner for best comedy or musical, Amazon Prime Video’s “Fleabag,” ended after two seasons, which means it’s a brand new competition for comedy at this year’s Golden Globes.
Among contenders, just one of last year’s nominees (Netflix’s “The Politician”) is eligible to return. The HFPA likes to be first when it comes to honoring critically acclaimed series before they go on to other awards glory, but this year, Globes voters may still gravitate toward Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek,” even after that comedy’s final season already swept the Emmy Awards in September.
Meanwhile, Hulu is in the hunt with three big contenders (“The Great,” “Ramy” and “Pen15”) while upstart streamers Apple TV Plus (“Ted Lasso”) and HBO Max (“The Flight Attendant”) could also elbow out other streamer titans.
The Golden Globes Awards, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, is held annually with 93 members since 1944. The group recognizes excellence in film and television, across drama and comedy or musical categories. “Mad Men” and “The X-Files” hold the record for most wins as best drama, at three each, while “All in the Family” has won the most awards for best comedy/musical, with four wins. Carol Burnett has the record for most TV nominations, at 13 (she won five), while Alan Alda has the most TV wins, with 6 (out of 12 nominations).
