fargo-season-2-trailerjpg-6457e3_1280wGolden Globes: 2016 Television Predictions – September

So many intriguing new Fall shows are about to start coming out, and before we know it, in December, we may be seeing some of them sneak their way into a couple Golden Globe nominations.

You have to kind of mirror the Emmys here, but the Golden Globes tend to take Television nominations in a different way. These predictions are real early, and predicting an “unseen” television show is twice as difficult as a movie.

We think that “Fargo,” “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Transparent” will all make welcome returns while newcomers such as “Empire” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” may break out. Meanwhile “American Horror Story: Hotel” will likely hold down many of the “Mini-Series and TV Movie” categories.

So here is our complete Television Predictions. We’ve also updated all of our Golden Globe movie predictions which can all be found here.
