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"
