Best Drama Series lineup includes only first-time Golden Globe nominees for the first time in 42 years

For the first time since 1976, the Golden Globe Awards did not nominate any past nominees for Best Drama Series. The nominees are four new dramas and one returning drama that the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. had not previously acknowledged in the top category (“The Americans”).

Incumbent nominees “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things” were ineligible because they did not air in 2018; fellow incumbent “The Handmaid’s Tale” was relegated to nominations for its actresses and the other incumbent “This is Us” was shut out for the first time.

Eligible past winners “The Affair,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Mr. Robot” were also snubbed as were eligible past nominees “Empire” and “House of Cards.” “Outlander” and “Westworld” were the only past Best Drama Series nominees other than “The Handmaid’s Tale” to factor into the nominations; they also received recognition only for their actresses.
