Golden Globe Predictions-Television

Hello World Family,
Here is part two of Falcon and Dove's predictions for the Golden Globes Sunday evening.

Falcon and Dove's Television Award Golden Globe Predictions

Best Television Series-Drama
This was an impossible category; we picked three: Dexter, House, and In Treatment. We have no idea what will could be House, but Dexter is darkly uber cool, and In Treatment is just so dramatically good! Fine actors, great writing. Man Men and True Blood aren't bad either. Pick one.

Best Actress in a Television Series-Drama
Tough Category; we think my fellow birthday gal Sally Field in Brothers and Sisters has a shot. We love Kyra Sedgwick in The Closer. Mariska Hargitay is fierce in Law and Order: SVU. We think one of these three women will get the globe.

Actor in a Television Series-Drama
In this category, we have to go with one of our favorite actors of all time, Gabriel Byrne for In Treatment. This group has stiff competition with perennial favorite, Hugh Laurie in House; Michael C. Hall from Dexter, and the Welsh actor Jonathan Rhys-Myers in The Tudors. Jon Hamm in Mad Men is probably the outside guy.

Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical
Our favorite television category! Who do you pick>! Give them all one!
We believe Tina Fey will win this year for 30 Rock. We love, love, love America Ferrera in Ugly Betty, Debra Messing and Christina Applegate are hysterical in their shows The Starter Wife and Samantha Who respectively. Mary Louise Parker in Weeds has been here before. We wish them all good luck!

Best Actor, Comedy or Musical
Falcon and Dove are going with David Duchovny in Californication. This is a a tough group with the ever talented Steve Carell, Kevin Connolly, Alec Baldwin, and Tony Shalhoub. These guys are good.

Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
An extremely impressive grouping, we are choosing John Adams for the winner.
A Raisin in the Sun is one of Falcon's favorite plays and movies, and Recount was excellent.

Actress in a Miniseries or Motion Picture made for Television
What a beautiful group! We are going with Laura Linney in John Adams, but could easily have gone for Dame Judi Dench in Cranford, Shirley MacLaine as Coco Channel, or Catherine Keener in An American Crime. Susan Sarandon is one of Falcon and Dove's favorites.All outstanding performances, all deserving.

Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture made for Television
This is such a difficult category for a decision, but we are tied with Ralph Fiennes in Benard and Doris, along with Paul Giamatti as John Adams. Kevin Spacey, Keifer Sutherland, and Tom Wilkinson all rock and this is such a hard decision.

Supporting Actress
We are going with Laura Dern in Recount, but we also have Dianne West and Melissa George from In Treatment, Rachel Griffiths in Brothers and Sisters, and the impressive Eileen Atkins in Cranford. It was a good year.

Supporting Actor
Jeremy Piven has had a great year in Entourage, and a hard fall and winter on Broadway with his sudden illness. He probably has this one. CMU graduate Blair Underwood was a sympathetic and frightening character in In Treatment.
Denis Leary has always been a favorite, and he was good in Recount. Neil Patrick Harris is hysterical (and is good with swords as well) in How I Met Your Mother. Tom Wilkinson was good, but not my favorite portrayal of Ben Franklin.

We wish all the nominees good luck and hope that Falcon and Dove fans see some of these actors in action in additional productions this year.

Peace, World Family!
Falcon and Dove
