Golden Globe Predictions: Television

Best Drama
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
The Newsroom

Homeland has the most buzz, and while it did not win last year, nor did it make a big splash last year, but the Golden Globes are all about the buzz, and Homeland has the best shot at winning.  Downton is the biggest spoiler.

Will Win and Should: Homeland
Spoiler: Downton Abbey

Best Drama Actor
Steve Buscemi-Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston-Breaking Bad
Jeff Daniels-The Newsroom
John Hamm-Mad Men
Damien Lewis-Homeland

Lewis scored big at Emmy Awards, and he should score an easy win here.  Daniels could spoil as the new kid on the block

Will and Should Win: Damien Lewis-Homeland
Spoiler-Jeff Daniels-The Newsroom

Best Drama Actress
Connie Britton-Nashville
Glenn Close-Damages
Claire Danes-Homeland
Michelle Dockery-Downton Abbey
Julianna Marguilles-The Good Wife

Another Homeland vs. Downton race, Dockery is the best chance as a spoiler against Danes, but look for Danes to win with ease.

Will and Should Win: Claire Danes-Homeland
Spoiler-Michelle Dockery-Downton Abbey

Best Comedy/Musical Series
The Big Bang Theory
Modern Family

The Globes love musicals, but this is Smash's only nomination.  They have shown Modern Family a lot of love, but I think last year was the last.  Girls is the hot new show and will win.

Will and Should Win-Girls
Spoiler-Modern Family

Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical
Alec Baldwin-30 Rock
Louis C.K.-Louie
Don Cheedle-House of Lies
Matt LeBlanc-Episodes
Jim Parsons-The Big Bang Theory

LeBlance has taken this taken this trophy before, and could repeat, but my money is on the hit comedian Louis C.K.

Will and Should: Louis C.K.-Louie
Spoiler-Matt LeBlanc-Episodes

Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy
Zooey Deschanel-New Girl
Lena Dunham-Girls
Tina Fey-30 Rock
Julia Louis Drefuss-Veep
Amy Poehler-Parks and Recreation

One of the tougher television categories to predict, but much like Sex and the City, I think Dunham is going to be the reigning queen of this award because of her hip new show.  Look for host Amy Poehler to be a spoiler.

Will and Should Win-Lena Dunham
Spoiler-Amy Poehler-Parks and Recreation

Best Mini-Series or Movie-Game Change
Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Television Movie-Kevin Costner-Hattfield's & McCoys
Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Television Movie-Julianne Moore-Game Change
Best Supporting Actor in a Television Drama, Comedy/Musical, Mini-Series or Movie-Ed Harris-Game Change
Best Supporting Actress in a Television Drama, Comedy/Musical, Mini-Series or Movie-Maggie Smith-Downton Abbey
