From coming-of-age drama to an anthology about West Indian immigrants in London. These are the top series according to the 2021 Golden Globe Best TV miniseries odds.
The 78th Golden Globe will take place on the 28th of February. With all nominees being announced on the 3rd of February. The Awards will honor the best in film and American television of 2020 in 28 different categories. We already take a look in the Best Drama/Comedy categories. In the Television awards we can find the Best TV Miniseries or Television Film category where usually special TV series focusing on a single topic won. Like last year’s winner, Chernobyl or The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story which won in 2018. Last year we could see several great TV series on the most famous streaming platforms which have also produced most of them. Netflix series lead the odds and are in the top favorites to win this time. Let’s see who they are.
Main favorites in the 2021 Golden Globe Best TV Miniseries or Television Film odds
Online sportsbooks in the US offer the smallest odds, 2.155 for the victory of The Queen’s Gambit. The coming-of-age drama was a huge hit on Netflix at the end of last year. Actually the series is the adaptation of Walter Tevis’s novel from 1983. And it tells the story of a girl chess prodigy and her rise to the top of the chess world. Anya Taylor-Joy plays the main character, Beth perfectly. Surely she will be in the top favorites to win the award in the Best Performance category. Beside her we can also find great actors in other main roles. Like Harry Melling, who played Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter series. Or Thomas Brodie-Sangster who we could see in several films from Love Actually to Game of Thrones.
Another favorite in the category is a British anthology series called Small Axe, directed by Steve McQueen. Which consists of five films and are about the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the late 1960s to the 1980s. The series first aired on BBC followed by its debut on Amazon Prime. Undoubtedly it has a great cast as well with John Boyega, Letitia Wright, Malachi Kirby and Alex Jennings in it. Small Axe has already won the Best Picture awards in the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards. Now it has the odds of 4.00 to win in the 2021 Golden Globe Best TV miniseries odds.
Emmy nominees like Unorthodox and Mrs America are also in the favorites
Meanwhile online gambling sites in the US also mention another Netflix series, Unorthodox with the odds of 5.00 to win the category. The story of Esty, a young Jewish woman who broke away from her husband and their Ultra-Orthodox community in New York to live free in Berlin. We can also see great performances and learn lots of new information about this special community. Unorthodox was a nominee in the 2020 Emmy Awards in the Outstanding Limited Series category.
Just like Mrs America which can be a nominee in the Golden Globe too. Cate Blanchett stars in the historical drama about conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly who fought against the feminist movement in the 1970s. The series received 10 nominations in the 72nd Emmy Awards, with Uzo Aduba winning the Outstanding Supporting Actress category. Now Mrs America has the odds of 10.00 to win in the Best TV miniseries Golden Globe.
