Philly2Philly.com 2011 Golden Globe Award TV Predictions: Modern Family, The Good Wife, Jon Hamm, and Elisabeth Moss to Score Big


Philly2Philly’s TV Nomination Predictions for The 2011 Golden Globe Awards

Best Television Series, Drama
Boardwalk Empire
The Good Wife
Mad Men
The Walking Dead

My vote is for The Good Wife… one of the best ensemble cast’s on TV. There’s a nice mix of gossip and real cases. Of course, I love Mad Men too. I cut back on my cable so I have to get Dexter on Netflix. I like the Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire, but I think they need to grow into their stories.

Best Televison Series, Comedy or Musical
30 Rock
The Big Bang Theory
The Big C
Modern Family
Nurse Jackie

I’m going to go for Modern Family since Glee won last year.

Best Actor in a Television Series, Drama
Steve Buscemi-Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston-Breaking Bad
Michael C. Hall-Dexter
Jon Hamm-Mad Men
Hugh Laurie-House

Jon Hamm. He was perfect this year.

Best Actress in a Television Series, Drama
Julianna Margulies-The Good Wife
Elisabeth Moss-Mad Men
Piper Perabo-Covert Affairs
Katey Sagal-Sons of Anarchy
Kyra Sedgwick-The Closer
I can’t even believe Piper Perabo got nominated… don’t get me wrong, I like the show, I think she’s good….but puuhlease. That’s what I love about the Golden Globes… you just have to laugh at some of the nominations. Where was I?

Right. Elisabeth Moss. She was excellent this year…and it’s no surprise some of her best work when she was partnered with Jon Hamm.

Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical
Alec Baldwin-30 Rock
Steve Carell-The Office
Thomas Jane-Hung
Matthew Morrison-Glee
Jim Parsons-Big Bang Theory

Anyone but Carrell or Baldwin. Seriously. Ok… Matthew Morrison.

Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
Hope Davis-Special Relationship
Jane Lynch-Glee
Kelly McDonald-Boardwalk Empire
Julia Stiles-Dexter
Sofia Vergara-Modern Family

Julia Stiles, Dexter.

Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
Scott Caan-Hawaii Five-0
Chris Noth-The Good Wife
David Straithairn-Temple Grandin
Eric Stonestreet-Modern Family
Chris Colfer-Glee

Call me crazy, but I think Scott Caan’s going to win. He also gets the best lines in that show.

Best Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical
Toni Collette-United States of Tara
Edie Falco-Nurse Jackie
Tina Fey-30 Rock
Laura Linney-The Big C
Lea Michelle-Glee

Hmm. Lea Michelle…

Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
The Pacific
Temple Grandin
You Don't Know Jack
The Pillars of the Earth

This is tough. HBO owns this category. I’m guessing its between the Pacific and Temple Grandin. Oh…. I’m going with the Pacific. I prefer spreading the love across an ensemble.

Best Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
Dennis Quaid-The Special Relationship
Ian McShane-The Pillars of the Earth
Édgar Ramírez-Carlos
Al Pacino-You Don't Know Jack
Idris Elba-Luther

Idris Elba rocks – but I think they way his character was written is a bit over the top and clichéd. I’m voting for Edgar Ramirez in Carlos.

Best Actress in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
Claire Danes-Temple Grandin
Hayley Atwell-The Pillars of the Earth
Jennifer Love Hewitt-The Client List
Judi Dench-Return to Cranford
Romola Gara-Emma

Claire Danes was excellent playing the autistic inventor Temple Grandin. She never faltered in her portrayal.  And I just have to add, Jennifer Love Hewitt? How is that even possible that she’s on the same list with Judi Dench.

The 2011 Golden Globes will Sunday, January 16th on NBC at 8pm EST
