«House of the Dragon Takes Home Golden Globe Prize for Outstanding Drama Series»

11 January 2023, Wednesday
HBO's "House of the Dragon" came out on top at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards, winning the coveted Best Drama Series prize while putting parent series "Game of Thrones" in the dust. The victory was a surprise to awards pundits, who had tipped "Severance" to go home with the award. The other nominees included "The Crown," "Better Call Saul" and "Ozark". "GoT" had been nominated for eight Golden Globes throughout its eight-year run, but only managed to win one, which was a supporting actor award for Peter Dinklage. It lost the Best Drama Series prize a total of five times.

The highly anticipated "House of the Dragon" only received one nomination at this year's Golden Globe Awards; losing out on Best TV Drama Actress for Emma D'Arcy as the adult Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen to Zendaya (“Euphoria”). Surprisingly, this came despite the show's star Paddy Considine giving one of the year's most talked-about performances as King Viserys Targaryen being snubbed by voters.

Set in Westeros hundreds of years prior to the events of "Game of Thrones", "House of the Dragon" is a new spin-off series created by Ryan Condal and based on George R. R. Martin's book. To portray the characters of this series, older actors have been cast to fill in the roles of their younger counterparts when the show's time jumps occur. This marks Condal and Martin's first time collaborating on a project, as co-creators of the show..

"Severance" was Gold Derby's choice for Best Drama Series. Led by Adam Scott, this sci-fi debut centers on the employees of Lumon Industries, who are required to undergo memory wipes when they come in for work. Joining Scott in the cast are Britt Lower as a perplexed new hire, and Patricia Arquette as their enigmatic boss. As well as its series nomination, "Severance" earned Globe nominations for Scott in Drama Actor, and John Turturro (as a severed worker) in Drama/Comedy Supporting Actor.

Coming in second place in our predictions was the fifth season of the Netflix regal drama, "The Crown". It changed its main cast members once more this year, with Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip and Lesley Manville playing Princess Margaret. The Globe voters are big fans of "The Crown", which won this category twice previously in 2016 and 2020. It earned four nominations for this time around for series, actress (Staunton), supporting actor (Pryce) and supporting actress (Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana).

After “House of the Dragon” in third place, fourth place was occupied by “Better Call Saul”. This intricate spin-off of the iconic show “Breaking Bad” just recently finished its last season with an instant classic of a series finale, in which Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) reunited with his soulmate Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) after going to prison due to a variety of drug-related charges. Odenkirk was nominated once again as Leading Actor, which is his fifth nomination, while the other performers sadly went unrecognized.

“Ozark” earned the fifth position in the final round of Gold Derby’s odds for its last season. Three nominations were obtained by the Netflix gritty drama on money laundering; they included Drama Series, Drama Actress (Laura Linney as Wendy Byrde) and Supporting Actress (Julia Garner as Ruth Langmore). Garner was triumphant and became the lone actor from a nominated drama series to earn a Golden Globe this year.
