Golden Globes 2020: Outlander, Sam Heughan, Jodie Comer top readers’ hopeful nominees

Golden GlobesWho would you nominate for a Golden Globe if given the opportunity? That’s a question that we’ve answered over the past month courtesy of our CarterMatt Golden Globe Preview Series, and today, we come bearing some of the results for the Drama categories — and also the all-encompassing Supporting fields, which remain frustrating in how exclusionary they could be.

As always, thanks to all who voted for your favorites! Also, know that the Golden Globes are going to be announced on December 9. It’s only a matter of days away! We’ll be back after the fact with some more coverage of that, including the nominees, snubs, surprises, and a whole lot more. Be sure to check back to this link after the fact!

Drama Series – Outlander. In this case, it wasn’t altogether close as the Starz drama secured the vast majority of the vote. We weren’t even sure the show would be eligible earlier this fall, but that was confirmed by Starz — not only that, but they are putting their all into the campaign for it! We’ve seen enormous building advertisements already.

Drama Actor – Sam Heughan, Outlander. Once again, this was another blowout — Sam has been a reader favorite here at CarterMatt for some time, and we do think that there’s also a little bit of frustration right now over how he has never been nominated — Caitriona Balfe, Outlander itself, and Tobias Menzies have in the past.

Drama Actress – Jodie Comer, Killing Eve. We’d bank on Comer being a contender for a nomination, as Killing Eve remains a sensation two years in. We do wonder if it premieres a little bit too far out of campaign season to get a ton of attention on itself, but we have a feeling it’ll still get some love.

Supporting Actor – Richard Rankin, Outlander. Even though Richard only appeared in a handful of episodes in 2019, we’d argue that his performances in the final few of season 4 are some of the strongest work we’ve ever seen him do. He may be a darkhorse contender, but a worthy one.

Supporting Actress – Alycia Debnam-Carey, Fear the Walking Dead. Personally, we’d rather see her in a leading category, but this is where she will likely be submitted in line with the past few years. When it comes to both an action and emotional standpoint, it’s clear that season 5 was one of her strongest years yet as Alicia Clark.

Who do you want to see nominated at the Golden Globes this year?
