Golden Globe Predictions

Here are my Predictions for the Golden Globes that are airing Sunday night on NBC. I put my television predictions first but I have also added my Movie predictions, since I’ve seen most of the movies this year.  Didn’t add any explanations to the movies just who I believe, Will/Should win and who could be the Dark Horse! Enjoy!

Legend:

Underlined means will win

Italics mean Should Win.

Bold means Dark Horse.

Television:

Best Television Series – Drama

Boardwalk Empire (HBO)

Dexter (SHOWTIME)

The Good Wife (CBS)

Mad Men (AMC)

The Walking Dead (AMC)

*Mad Men had its best season yet but The Hollywood Foreign Press LOVES them some good HBO shows, so I have a feeling they are going to award Boardwalk Empire the coveted award Sunday. However, The Good Wife has been terrific and they may see fit to award it as well but it’s more likely they’d award The Walking Dead before CBS’s finest drama.

Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Drama

Julianna Margulies – The Good Wife (CBS)

Elisabeth Moss – Mad Men (AMC)

Piper Perabo – Covert Affairs (USA)

Katey Sagal – Sons Of Anarchy (FX)

Kyra Sedgwick – The Closer (TNT)

*Julianna won last year and she was robbed at the Emmys , so they could award her again. However, Elisabeth Moss and Katey Sagal are absolutely terrific and they need to be awarded asap.

Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Drama

Steve Buscemi – Boardwalk Empire (HBO)

Bryan Cranston – Breaking Bad

Michael C. Hall – Dexter (SHOWTIME)

Jon Hamm – Mad Men (AMC)

Hugh Laurie – House (FOX)

*Globes finally nominated Cranston but that doesn’t mean he’ll win, even if he does deserve it. Jon Hamm deserves it again too for his outstanding work this year on Mad Men. However, I think the award is going to give it to Buscemi who did deliver some outstanding work on Boardwalk. If he wins this award, expect Boardwalk to take away the Best Drama award.

Best Television Series – Comedy Or Musical

30 Rock (NBC)

The Big Bang Theory (CBS)

The Big C (Showtime)

Glee (FOX)

Modern Family (ABC)

Nurse Jackie (SHOWTIME)

*Glee will probably win again. Modern Family deserves to win because its outstanding and it did win the Emmy, so Globes could go with it this year! Lets hope!

Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical

Toni Collette – United States Of Tara (SHOWTIME)

Edie Falco – Nurse Jackie (SHOWTIME)

Tina Fey – 30 Rock (NBC)

Laura Linney – The Big C (Showtime)

Lea Michele – Glee (FOX)

*Laura Linney is a previous globe winner, the HFPA love her and shes outstanding in her role on The Big C. She will and deserves to win this award.

Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical

Alec Baldwin – 30 Rock (NBC)

Steve Carell – The Office (NBC)

Thomas Jane – Hung (HBO)

Matthew Morrison – Glee (FOX)

Jim Parsons – The Big Bang Theory (CBS)

*Alac always seems to win this award but I think its time to give Jim Parsons the award; especially after nominating Big Bang for best comedy.

Best Mini-Series Or Motion Picture Made for Television

Carlos (Sundance C)

The Pacific (HBO)

Pillars Of The Earth (STARZ)

Temple Grandin (HBO)

You Don’t Know Jack (HBO)

*Just give the award to The Pacific please.

Best Performance by an Actress In A Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Hayley Atwell – Pillars Of The Earth (STARZ)

Claire Danes – Temple Grandin (HBO)

Judi Dench – Return To Cranford

Romola Garai – Emma

Jennifer Love Hewitt – The Client List

*Claire Danes is taking this award. No one else compares to her work on Temple Grandin.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Idris Elba – Luther

Ian McShane – Pillars Of The Earth (STARZ)

Al Pacino – You Don’t Know Jack (HBO)

Dennis Quaid – The Special Relationship

Edgar Ramirez – Carlos (Sundance C)

*Al Pacino is winning this award. No need to elaborate any more.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Hope Davis – The Special Relationship

Jane Lynch – Glee (FOX)

Kelly MacDonald – Boardwalk Empire (HBO)

Julia Stiles – Dexter (SHOWTIME)

Sofia Vergara – Modern Family (ABC)

*Globes will probably right their wrong and give the award to Jane Lynch. But Sofia deserves it. Kelly could win though too if they want to give Boardwalk and all around sweep.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Scott Caan – Hawaii Five-O

Chris Colfer – Glee (FOX)

Chris Noth – The Good Wife (CBS)

Eric Stonestreet – Modern Family (ABC)

David Strathairn – Temple Grandin (HBO)

*I think Chris Colfer could really win this award and if he does. I won’t complain. However, It would be amazing to see Eric Stonestreet win, he deserves it.
