You know where TV DivaGal will be Sunday night: On the couch with a glass of Malbec as the awards fly in Hollywood for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. So who will take home the statues this year on the TV side? Here’s who TV DivaGal thinks we’ll see come out on top.
Best TV Series, Drama: Mad Men. The Globes just can’t get enough of this serialized drama that takes them back to the decadence of a decade past.
Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical: Glee. Yes, 30 Rock has dominated this category with its irreverent humor, but this soapy drama offers pretty teens who can sing and dance, and the Foreign Press will harmonize with them all the way to the podium.
Best Actress, TV Drama: Glenn Close. Looking a little like her Cruella De Vil character in 101 Dalmatians, Close plays evil so expertly, it’s hard to resist her ruthlessness.
Best Actor, TV Drama: House’s Hugh Laurie may be handing over his crown to Dexter’s Michael C. Hall. This serial killer has been slaying it without detection for the past three seasons, and it’s time he finally gets caught – with an award.
Best Actress, Comedy or Musical: 30 Rock’s Tina Fey. This is where 30 Rock will get its accolades, with its creator, writer and star earning her third statue.
Best Actor, Comedy or Musical: Hung’s Thomas Jane. This may be the big upset of the night, with Jane getting recognized for the naughty concept of the everyday guy who moonlights as a gigolo.
Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for TV: HBO’s Grey Gardens. As the Beales ladies who holed themselves up in their dilapidated mansion, Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange’s eerie performances will not be ignored.
The 67th Annual Golden Globes airs Sunday, Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
