Golden Globes TV predix: Best lead drama actor

October 13, 2010 |  1:22 pm

Our TV experts Chris "Boomer" Beachum and Rob Licuria agree on who four of the five nominees will be for lead actor in a drama series at the Golden Globes: Steve Buscemi ("Boardwalk Empire"), Gabriel Byrne ("In Treatment"), Michael C. Hall ("Dexter") and Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"). However, Boomer picks Hugh Laurie ("House M.D.") and Rob opts for Tom Selleck ("Blue Bloods") in the fifth slot. Notice how similar these predix are to what they forecast for this same category at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Michael C Hall Golden Globes news DexterBoomer handicaps the Globes race contender by contender below. Rob's reax to Boomer's rundown: "I would move James Badge Dale ('Rubicon') up, add Michael Chiklis ('No Ordinary Family') to possibles and Andy Whitfield ('Spartacus: Blood and Sand') to long shots."

Michael C. Hall won last year. Gabriel Byrne triumphed in 2008 and wasn't nominated in 2009 because "In Treatment" didn't air new episodes during the eligibility period.
