Jason Bateman Talks ‘Ozark’ Season 2, ‘Breaking Bad’ Comparisons & ‘Arrested Development’ – The Contenders Emmys

Jason Bateman joined Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys event to talk about the next season of his Netflix series Ozark, which he calls a sequel “as opposed to a second season.” “We’re approaching [Ozark] as a 10-chapter movie… the second year is not a completely new story, but it is another single beginning, middle, and end.”
Bateman, who was joined onstage at the DGA Theater today by his co-star Julia Garner, gave props to the Netflix format. “It’s fantastic from a…

Golden Globes TV Predictions: From ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ to ‘Ozark’ (Photos)

Yes, there will be surprises at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening. There always are at the Golden Globes. Here’s what I think will happen in the TV categories:

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
Nominees:
“The Crown”
“Game of Thrones”
“The Handmaid’s Tale”
“Stranger Things”
“This Is Us”

In the TV categories, HFPA voters love to salute new shows, and to go a different route than the Emmys. The first of those won’t be difficult, but the second will be – “The Handmaid’s Tale” was the big winner at the Emmys, but it feels too much like the show of the moment for the Globes to shy away just because the Television Academy likes it too.
Winner: “The Handmaid’s Tale”

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Nominees:
“Black-ish”
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
“Master of None”
“SMILF”
“Will and Grace”

It’ll be easy to go for a new show in this category, too – but which one, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” or “SMILF?” Maybe the former, which had a splashy debut just as the HFPA was voting.
Winner: “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

BEST LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Nominees:
“Big Little Lies”
“Fargo”
“Feud: Bette and Joan”
“The Sinner”
“Top of the Lake: China Girl”

The voters reportedly loved “The Sinner,” but this is probably another category where the reigning Emmy champ will be too much of an event to ignore. But there’s one potential snag: Now that HBO has announced a second season, “Big Little Lies” should really be in the drama-series category – and if voters feel as if they’re victims of category fraud, “The Sinner” could stage an upset here.
Winner: “Big Little Lies”

BEST ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
Nominees:
Jason Bateman, “Ozark”
Sterling K. Brown, “This Is Us”
Freddie Highmore, “The Good Doctor”
Bob Odenkirk, “Better Call Saul”
Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan”

Sterling K. Brown could well win for “This is Us,” but I suspect voters will want someone from a slightly newer show – either Jason Bateman for “Ozark” or Freddie Highmore for “The Good Doctor.”
Winner: Jason Bateman, “Ozark”

BEST ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
Nominees:
Catriona Balfe, “Outlander”
Claire Foy, “The Crown”
Maggie Gyllenhaal, “The Deuce”
Katherine Langford, “13 Reasons Why”
Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Maggie Gyllenhaal gets “newest, hottest show” points for “The Deuce,” but even the HFPA knows this is the year of Elisabeth Moss.
Winner: Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

BEST ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Nominees:
Anthony Anderson, “Black-ish”
Aziz Ansari, “Master of None”
Kevin Bacon, “I Love Dick”
William H. Macy, “Shameless”
Eric McCormack, “Will and Grace”

Voters apparently really liked the revived “Will and Grace,” so Eric McCormack is a contender. Aziz Ansari is always a cool choice. And Kevin Bacon is not only a star, he’ll let some lucky presenter say “I Love Dick” on national television.
Winner: Kevin Bacon, “I Love Dick”

BEST ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Nominees:
Pamela Adlon, “Better Things”
Alison Brie, “GLOW”
Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
Issa Rae, “Insecure”
Frankie Shaw, “SMILF”

There are lots of fresh new faces on fresh new shows in this category, and you could make a case for any of them winning. But as creator, showrunner and star of a late-breaking show, maybe Frankie Shaw has a slight edge over Rachel Brosnahan.
Winner: Frankis Shaw, “SMILF”

BEST ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Robert De Niro, “The Wizard of Lies”
Jude Law, “The Young Pope”
Kyle MacLachlan, “Twin Peaks”
Ewan McGregor, “Fargo”
Geoffrey Rush, “Genius”

Fresh new faces? Not so much. In a category filled with esteemed veterans, look for the most veteran and most esteemed to take the prize.
Winner: Robert De Niro, “The Wizard of Lies”

BEST ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Nominees:
Jessica Biel, “The Sinner”
Nicole Kidman, “Big Little Lies”
Jessica Lange, “Feud: Bette and Joan”
Susan Sarandon, “Feud: Bette and Joan”
Reese Witherspoon, “Big Little Lies”

Yes, this should be an easy win for Nicole Kidman, who already has the Emmy for her performance in “Big Little Lies.” But voters know it’s not really a limited series, and they do love Jessica Biel and “The Sinner,” so this is an upset waiting to happen.
Winner: Jessica Biel, “The Sinner”

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A SERIES, LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Nominees:
David Harbour, “Stranger Things”
Alfred Molina, “Feud: Bette and Joan”
Alexander Skarsgard, “Big Little Lies”
Christian Slater, “Mr. Robot”
David Thewlis, “Fargo”

The supporting categories mix drama and comedy series with limited series and TV movies, which means that qualms about where “Big Little Lies” belongs are meaningless here. That’ll help Alexander Skarsgard, who had the most eye-catching, um, part of the season.
Winner: Alexander Skarsgard, “Big Little Lies”

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A SERIES, LIMITED SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
Nominees:
Laura Dern, “Big Little Lies”
Ann Dowd, “The Handmaid’s Tale”
Chrissy Metz, “This Is Us”
Michelle Pfeiffer, “The Wizard of Lies”
Shailene Woodley, “Big Little Lies”

And the absence of potential category fraud will also help Laura Dern at the end of a year in which everybody finally kind of figured out that Laura Dern rocks.
Winner: Laura Dern, “Big Little Lies”

Yes, there will be surprises at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening. There always are at the Golden Globes. Here’s what I think will happen in the TV categories:

‘Ozark’: Golden Globe-Nominated Netflix Drama Will Teach You How to be a Criminal — Watch

“Do you want to take your criminal career to the next level?” asks “Ozark” fan favorite Ruth.

If you have ever wondered how Ruth Langmore (played by Julia Garner) from Netflix’s “Ozark” gets by in the Missouri criminal underworld, you can stop looking. Netflix released a new video on Tuesday afternoon with Garner in character explaining the knots and bolts on how to be a true criminal like Ruth.

Edited with infomercial-type graphics, Ruth instructs people that in order to be a successful criminal, for instance, you need to “learn some goddamn self defense.” Watch the video below to find out the other “trade secrets” that Ruth has so generously disclosed:

After a deal with a drug cartel goes south, “Ozark” follows financial planner Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and his family as they are forced to relocate from Chicago to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks. Laura Linney stars as Marty’s wife who gets involved with real estate to help Marty launder money after they move to Missouri. Their paths cross with fan favorite and resident badass Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), who also gets involved in Marty’s laundering business.

Jason Bateman recently snagged a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Series. Bateman also directed four out of the 10 episodes of the first season and he executive produced the show alongside Chris Mundy, Bill Dubuque, and Mark Williams.

“Ozark” is currently streaming its first season on Netflix. The second season is currently in production.
