Golden Globes 2015

Here we are again, the 2015 Golden Globes have arrived! Tonight, 8 on NBC, we shall see who the Hollywood foreign press has picked as the best of the year. Notoriously corrupt, these awards are difficult to predict, but I will give it a shot.

Winners are Bold, my pick has *

BEST TV DRAMA

The Good Wife
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
The Affair
House of Cards*

One of the best tv shows I’ve seen. Love Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones, but i’d guess HoC.

BEST TV COMEDY

Girls
Jane the Virgin
Orange is the New Black*
Silicon Valley
Transparent

I watch none of these, but Orange seems to have a lot of buzz.

BEST ACTOR IN A TV SERIES, DRAMA

Kevin Spacey, House of Cards*
Clive Owen, The Knick
Dominic West, The Affair
James Spader, The Blacklist
Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan

No question. Spacey has this.

BEST ACTRESS IN A TV SERIES, DRAMA

Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Robin Wright, House of Cards*
Viola Davis, How To Get Away With Murder
Ruth Wilson, The Affair
Claire Danes, Homeland

One-two punch for HoC.

BEST TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE

True Detective*
Fargo
The Normal Heart
Olive Kitteridge
The Missing

I was not aware True Detective counted as a mini-series. Bizzare.

BEST ACTOR IN A TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE

Matthew McConaughey, True Detective*
Billy Bob Thornton, Fargo
Martin Freeman, Fargo
Woody Harrelson, True Detective
Mark Ruffalo, The Normal Heart

This is a tough one. Any of these guys could take it easily, but I think McConaughey continues his streak.

BEST ACTRESS IN A TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE

Frances McDormand, Olive Kitteridge
Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Honorable Woman
Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Freak Show*
Frances O’Connor, Missing
Allison Tolman, Fargo

I watch none of these. Lange because awards shows love rewarding older actresses.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE

Matthew Bomer, “The Normal Heart”
Jon Voight, “Ray Donovan”

She’s pretty awesome.

BEST ACTOR IN A TV SERIES, COMEDY

Don Cheadle, House of Lies
Ricky Gervais, Derek

BEST ACTRESS IN A TV SERIES, COMEDY

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep*
Taylor Schilling, Orange Is The New Black
Lena Dunham, Girls
Gina Rodriguez, Jane the Virgin
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie

She’s the only post-Seinfeld performer to make it big.
