In comedy, Dead to me and The Kominsky method they will fight the favorite, The wonderful lady Maisel , while in the miniseries section, although it has an advantage Watchmen is actually a very competitive category with the presence of Unorthodox .

In acting, one of the closest categories is that of best dramatic actress. Jennifer Jennifer Aniston (and a surprising Zendaya ( Euphoria ), will choose to take the award. In the men’s section, Brian Cox ( Succession ), which already won the Golden Globe in January.
