Will The White Lotus: Sicily Launch Awards at the Golden Globes?

Set to premiere on Sunday, Oct. 30, the second installment of HBO’s “The White Lotus” is already poised to continue its winning streak after a successful run at the 2022 Emmys. The first leg of its awards campaign involves nominations. for the 80th Golden Globes, which will be announced on December 12. Derby Racecourse Odds.

Boasting a track record of 10 trophies from this year’s Emmy Awards, the series already has a pedigree that most limited series are unable to match, but single-handedly replicate. Billed as an anthology series, this season set on the island of Sicily, the second installment will compete in the Best TV Movie/Limited Series categories at the Globes, allowing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to possibly award the series after its return. at home. empty-handed for the first season.

The new supporting categories will virtually guarantee that certain cast members will be named. If the HFPA takes a cue from the Emmys nominating committee, we could see more cast members being recognized, especially since previous award favorites Jennifer Coolidge returns as aloof socialite and fan favorite Tonya McQuoid. Coolidge won the Emmy and Critics Choice Award, while also receiving Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations. She is currently predicted to win the Limited/Movie Supporting Actress award, along with her co-star Place Aubrey trend one spot behind her in second place.

We also have F. Murray Abraham (former Golden Globe winner for his performance as Antonio Salieri in “Amadeus” in 1984) winner of limited supporting actor/movie role, with Michel Imperioli sitting in our fifth spot, which would be the show’s fourth potential acting nomination. Jon Gries also returns to the series, reprising his role as Greg Hunt, Tonya’s love interest. The two are now reportedly married, which can ensure that their eccentric and sometimes hilariously weird chemistry will remain intact, which will no doubt give way to some engaging hijinks with the new cast members.

In addition to the potential acting nominees, the series is set to win the limited series award, battling a mix of programs that either air before the fall deadline or have been out for several months. With its first episode airing October 30, “The White Lotus” definitely has time on its side. The first season has proven to be able to maintain its buzz for over a year, which will make the very fast November 28 ballot deadline look like a piece of cake. Shows like “The Dropout” and “Pam and Tommy” have proven to be formidable contenders at the Emmys, but they could suffer from being “out of sight, out of mind,” especially with new contenders like the second season of “The White Lotus”. “, “Blackbird” and “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” absorbing much of the buzz.

One aspect of “The White Lotus” season one that kept audiences coming back week after week was the impending mystery that was teased in its pilot episode. This tactic will also be employed for its second season, which will keep the show in the public eye and, in turn, fresh in the minds of voters. Plaza told Entertainment Weekly that this season is “juicier, feels like the stakes are higher, and there’s more drama and twists than the first season,” allowing for plenty of moments to cut. the breath that contributed to the longevity of Season 1.

With five nominations expected and three wins predicted, the Golden Globes could be the first step on a long road to success for “The White Lotus: Sicily.” Note that the series will compete in a completely different field during the SAG Awards a few weeks later.

Due to the guild’s rules regarding anthology series and their pursuit of storylines and/or main characters, Gold Derby exclusively announced that the show will compete in the drama series categories. This change has the potential to upend not only the awards trajectory of “The White Lotus”, but its competitors in the drama series races, as well as its previous competition which will now have a hugely open field due to its absence. Who exactly this category change will help or hurt, only time will tell.
