Early forecast of Golden Globes: Best TV drama series

October 5, 2010 | 11:08 am

Now that the fall TV shows have begun to play out, we have a better idea of which ones may be serious contenders at the next big batch of awards: Golden Globes. I asked our gurus, Chris "Boomer" Beachum and Rob Licuria, (AwardsHeaven) to pipe in with their early handicapping.

Boomer responded first with his breakdown. Below is how he sizes up the contest for TV drama series. Rob offered his slight edit: "I would move 'Damages' up to front-runners, add 'No Ordinary Family' to possibles."

Surprisingly, that means "Boardwalk Empire" is the only new show they list as a front-runner to be nominated. Normally, the Globes make a special point to spotlight hot new series, but the recent batch of new shows is getting a largely cool reception.

TV shows nominated last year are marked on the list below with an asterisk (*). "Mad Men" has won this category for the past three years, just as it did at the Emmys.
