Golden Globes TV Nominations: Who Should Win, Who Will Win …

SHOULD WIN: Sterling K. Brown, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

Well, that affable chap Hugh Laurie was pretty damned scary in The Night Manager, but this is a category that Sterling K. Brown (as Christopher Darden) owns. It’s his. They could have put his name on it six months ago. Might as well just do what needs to be done and hand it to him on stage.

WILL WIN: John Lithgow, The Crown

The Globes, unlike the Emmys, are about relationships as much as performances. So while Brown is eminently worthy, he might well lose some votes to his better-known but less-impressive costar John Travolta, or fellow veterans Hugh Laurie (The Night Manager) and Christian Slater (Mr. Robot). I suspect another vet, John Lithgow, will carry the day for his more recent work, as Winston Churchill, in The Crown.

The 2016 Critics’ Choice TV Nominations Prove That We’re Not Over Our True-Crime Obsession Yet

If you were wondering if our nationwide obsession with true-crime was petering out, the 2016 Critics Choice TV nominations are here to reassure you that it is not. You might have thought that shows like Making A MurdererThe Jinx, and the dozens of takes on the JonBenét Ramsey case would have us turning our attention elsewhere. But there at the top of the list of television shows being honored with a Critics Choice nomination was The People v. O.J. Simpson, so I guess not. The FX show was the runaway hit of the summer, focusing on the brutal double murder of O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994. The crime took place over 20 years ago at this point, so the fact that FX’s retelling of the trial for their new American Crime Story series is garnering
