Inside track: TV drama series races at the Golden Globes

December 9, 2009 |  9:12 am

Unlike the Emmys, you can always count on the Golden Globes to nominate the hottest new TV series. That means "FlashForward" and "The Good Wife" are a cinch to get in next Tuesday morning when bids are unveiled. But what else? Here's our handicapping.

* = nominated last year

** = won last year

Flashforward the good wife

"Breaking Bad"
* "Dexter"
"The Good Wife"
** "Mad Men"
* "House M.D."
* "In Treatment"
"Sons of Anarchy"
* "True Blood"
"The Mentalist"

SPOTLIGHT: "True Blood" almost won last year. It was nominated, and Anna Paquin won best actress. Now can the vampire-mania whipped up by "Twilight: New Moon" help it to swoop in for the kill?

"Big Love"
"The Tudors"

"Burn Notice"
"Rescue Me"
"The Vampire Diaries"
"White Collar"

Simon Baker, "The Mentalist"
** Gabriel Byrne, "In Treatment"
Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad"
Joseph Fiennes, "FlashForward"
* Michael C Hall, "Dexter"
* Jon Hamm, "Mad Men"
* Hugh Laurie, "House M.D."
Bill Paxton, "Big Love"

SPOTLIGHT: Usually, the Emmy (industry establishment award) copies the Globe (prize for hot new thing), but expect a flip-flop for Bryan Cranston. He's already won two Emmys for "Breaking Bad" but will finally nab his first Globe bid for the role this year.

Matthew Bomer, "White Collar"
Nathan Fillion, "Castle"
Joshua Jackson, "Fringe"
Lucien Msamati, "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency"
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, "The Tudors"

Denis Leary, "Rescue Me"
Stephen Moyer, "True Blood"
Jeffrey Donovan, "Burn Notice"
Dennis Hopper, "Crash"
Laurence Fishburne, "C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation"
Mark Harmon, "N.C.I.S."

Glenn Close, "Damages"
* Sally Field, "Brothers and Sisters"
* Mariska Hargitay, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"
* January Jones, "Mad Men"
Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife"
Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men"
** Anna Paquin, "True Blood"
Jill Scott, "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency"
* Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer"

SPOTLIGHT: January Jones was nominated at the Globes last year but not the Emmys. "Mad Men" costar Elisabeth Moss was snubbed by the Globes but was nominated by the Emmys and SAG. Now can both get in?

Stana Katic, "Castle"
Elizabeth Mitchell, "V"
Katey Sagal, "Sons of Anarchy"
Chloe Sevigny, "Big Love"
Jeanne Tripplehorn, "Big Love"
Anna Torv, "Fringe"
