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

BEST DRAMA SERIES
FRONT-RUNNERS
"Breaking Bad"
"Damages"
* "Dexter"
"FlashForward"
"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?

POSSIBLE
"Big Love"
"Lost"
"The Tudors"

LONG SHOTS
"Burn Notice"
"Rescue Me"
"V"
"The Vampire Diaries"
"White Collar"

BEST DRAMA ACTOR
FRONT-RUNNERS
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.

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

LONG SHOTS
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."


BEST DRAMA ACTRESS
FRONT-RUNNERS
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?

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

~ HUGH LAURIE FOR BEST DRAMA TV. ACTOR!!! :)

Matt,
Glenn Close wasn't eligible last year for a Golden Globe nomination because Damages didn't air in 2008.

January Jones. She's either the best actress ever or the worse. Her character, Betsy, is so drab and boring and uninspired. If JJ is actually acting, she's fantastic, otherwise, like I said.

Gabriel Byrne? Please watch Breaking Bad. It's no contest. The Emmys committee got it right.
...and Anna Paquin? I still don't understand why she won. Ludicrous.

Gabriel Byrne for best actor TV drama----OH YEA

Glenn Close won last year, no?

i like flashforward but i don't think it will be nominated either----but it probably has a better shot than the good wife.

Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife" wasn't nominated last year.

In what universe is "FlashForward" a "hot new drama"? It's fading faster than a cheap shirt in a hot wash. No nom for it.
