Killing Eve -130
The Americans +320
Homecoming +400
Pose +700
Bodyguard +1200

The British-made American drama deals with spies and trained assassins, and has been praised for its dark comedy, sex appeal, and “looming threat of violence.” It’s definitely the best bet to win out over the other nominees, if only for the undeniable buzz surrounding the show right now.

Killing Eve is definitely the best bet to win out over the other nominees, if only for the undeniable buzz surrounding the show right now.

Although only one season of the show has aired so far on BBC America, it took the television world by storm in 2018 and was unanimously adored by audiences. Thus, it should come as no surprise that a second season has since been ordered by the network.

Trailing Killing Eve in the betting odds is The Americans, which premiered on FX in 2013. The most recent sixth season is regarded by fans to be among the best yet, filled with suspense, intensity, and an incredible amount of violence.

Homecoming closely follows The Americans in third. It’s a relatively new show, having premiered on Amazon Video just last month, but already it has been met with critical acclaim for its “haunting mystery” and other elements of what makes for a successful television drama.

Every episode dropped at once on the Amazon streaming service, but that hasn’t stopped fans from raving all about it.

Pose and Bodyguard are also in the Best TV Drama Series this year, but neither show hold a candle to past winners of the award at the annual Golden Globes.

Past Winners of Best TV Drama Series at the Golden Globes

Year Winner
2013 Breaking Bad
2014 The Affair
2015 Mr. Robot
2016 The Crown
2017 The Handmaid’s Table

Breaking Bad and Mr. Robot are perhaps the most well-known programs out of the past five winners of the award at the Golden Globes. Both brought something completely different to the table compared to everything else on TV at the time and could be enjoyed by almost all audiences.

The Affair, on the other hand, was an immediate fan favorite as soon as it premiered on Showtime in 2014. The “creative storytelling and spectacular performances” were praised by critics and led to the show being renewed for several more seasons.

The Crown, which was introduced by Netflix in 2016, experienced similar success upon its premiere. The show follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II from her 1947 wedding through present day and is the latest historical drama to win over audiences for being both enlightening and entertaining.

Whatever show is named the Best TV Drama Series for this year will have to measure up to last year’s winner, The Handmaid’s Table.

Whatever show is named the Best TV Drama Series for this year will have to measure up to last year’s winner, The Handmaid’s Table, a Hulu original that takes place in the future and focuses on the collapse of fertility rates and general chaos in the United States. Its second season wasn’t nearly as strong, allowing other shows to steal the spotlight in time for the 2019 Golden Globes.
