Golden Globe 2010 Predictions Part II: Television

January 14, 2010 in Entertainment by pacejmiller

Having put in my two cents on the movies, here are my predictions for the television side of things in the 2010 Golden Globes!

I must say there’s not a lot of creativity in the nominations here, but it’s at least a little better than the movie ones.

Again, nominations below, with predicted winner in bold.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA

“Big Love”
“Dexter”
“House M.D.”
“Mad Men”
“True Blood”

Comments: I’ve only watched True Blood, a little of House MD and a tiny bit of Mad Men.  Could it be the less I’ve watched the better I think a show is?

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA:

Glenn Close – “Damages”
January Jones – “Mad Men”
Julianna Margulies – “The Good Wife”
Anna Paquin – “True Blood”
Kyra Sedgwick – “The Closer”

Comments: I don’t think it is deserving but I believe Paquin will win.  True Blood seems to be the hot topic for everyone these days.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA:

Simon Baker- “The Mentalist”
Michael C. Hall – “Dexter”
Jon Hamm – “Mad Men”
Hugh Laurie – “House M.D.”

Comments: Come on Simon Baker, but unfortunately the almost-perennial winner will probably get it again…

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL:

“30 Rock”
“Entourage”
“Glee”
“Modern Family”
“The Office”

Alec Baldwin – “30 Rock”
