Watching Way Too Much TV For You!

Award season is about to be in full swing with the The Golden Globe awards being held this Sunday on NBC at 8 Eastern/5 Pacific, which kicks off the season and the SAG Awards coming the following week. Ricky Gervais is hosting The Globes which should be a hilarious night with drinking celebrities and great awards. There is also some great presenters tonight such as for the girls Taylor Lautner. Here are my picks for the Television nominees, and if you continue I have provided the movie noms as well.

Best Drama Series

Big Love, Dexter, House, Mad Men, True Blood

Will Win: Mad Men, Should Win: House

This favorite will likely become the first drama to win three straight wins, but Dexter had a killer season and could provide some competition.

Best Comedy Series

Modern Family, Glee, 30 Rock, The Office, Entourage

Will Win: Glee, Should Win: Modern Family

Glee has taken America by storm with its innovative storytelling style and popularity, but the best comedy in years is Modern Family with a stellar cast, and brilliant writing. I am happy with both but would love to see the Family take this one back home.

Best Actor Drama

Simon Baker (The Mentalist), Hugh Laurie (House), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Bill Paxton (Big Love)

Will Win: Jon Hamm, Should Win: Hugh Laurie

Hugh Laurie is doing some of his best work on House since Season 1 but the Academy will likely give Jon Hamm the award for his crittically acclamied performance as Don Draper

Best Actor Comedy

Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Steve Carell (The Office), Thomas Jane (Hung), David Duchovny (Californication), Mathhew Morrison (Glee)

Will and Should Win: Alec Baldwin (30 Rock)

It would be nice to see Alec Baldwin not recieve this award but there is just nobody in this catergory so funny. I have no idea what Glee‘s Matthew Morrison is doing in here because he is not even close to being the best thing on that show.

Best Actress Comedy

Toni Collette (United States of Tara), Courtney Cox (Cougar Town), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Tina Fey (30 Rock), Lea Michelle (Glee)

Will and Should Win: Courtney Cox

Courtney Cox is back and better than ever, and delivers a hilarious performance each week. She deserves it.

Best Actress Drama

Glenn Close (Damages), January Jones (Mad Men), Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), Anna Paquin (True Blood), Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer)

Will and Should Win: Julianna Margulies

Juilanna is fantastic as her role as Alicia Florrick, the scorned wife of a head state attorney now back in the work place. Its captivating and moving, and is the perfect role for a win.

Best Supproting Actor

Michael Emerson (Lost), William Hurt (Damages), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Jeremy Piven (Entourage), John Lithgow (Dexter)

Will Win and Should Win (Maybe): Michael Emerson

Ben Linus rules, and Michael Emerson will deservingly take the award as he did last year at the Emmys but I just hope that somehow Neil Patrick Harris pulls a victory because he is awesome.

Best Supporting Actress

Jane Adams (Hung), Jane Lynch (Glee), Rose Byrne (Damages), Janet McTeer (Into the Storm), Chloe Sevigny (Big Love)

Will Win and Should Win: Jane Lynch

Just. Plain. Funny. Brilliant.
