“The Americans”


‘Bodyguard’ is the latest hit British TV show that Netflix has streamed to American audiences, and it has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace” was nominated for best limited series, best actor in a limited series (Darren Criss), best supporting actress in a limited series (Penélope Cruz), and best supporting actor in a limited series (Edgar Ramírez).

Other FX shows to be acknowledged were “Pose” with two nominations (best drama and best actor in a drama, Billy Porter) and “Atlanta” with one (best actor in a comedy, Donald Glover).

In the streaming war, Amazon Prime Video and HBO tied for the second-most nominations with nine each. They beat Netflix, which gained eight nominations. Hulu trailed with just two nominations, as “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which won best drama last year, was shut out from that category.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is the only series, in both the best drama and best comedy categories, that was nominated last year and nominated again this year. The series won best comedy last year, and its second season debuted on Wednesday.

The nominations were packed with Globes newcomers, including Netflix’s “Bodyguard,” a British series that Netflix acquired streaming rights to, and Amazon’s “Homecoming.”

Broadcast networks weren’t completely shut out. NBC’s “The Good Place” received attention with its third season, and CBS’ “Murphy Brown” was nominated for best actress in a comedy for Candice Bergen’s performance.

Below is the number of nominations each network received:

FX Networks — 10 HBO — 9 Prime Video — 9 Netflix — 8 Showtime — 6 NBC — 3 BBC America — 2 Hulu — 2 TNT — 2 Bravo — 1 CBS — 1 National Geographic — 1 Starz — 1
