Why is the Golden Globes so obsessed with TV newbies?

The Globes tend to ignore the old and embrace the newest shows. (Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Andy Samberg saw lots of Golden Globes love two years ago, only to be snubbed the following year.) As Billy Niles notes, “this has long been a known aspect of the HFPA's nominating style (Hello, 2000's nod for a young Frankie Muniz for the first season of surprise hit Malcolm in the Middle!), but with cable and streaming networks contributing to the greatest programming boom ever, the TV landscape is ripe with nomination possibilities from the farthest of left fields.” PLUS: The Globes’ idiosyncrasies are a double-edged sword.

Her dialogue delivery is stilted — and that’s putting it kindly.”
