Golden Globe 2014 Nominees for Television

Golden Globes 2014 Nominees for Best Drama Series

“Breaking Bad”
“Downton Abbey”
“The Good Wife”
“House of Cards”
“Masters of Sex”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: It won’t be Masters of Sex. Then you have the “we’re so diverse to include Netflix!” pick of House of Cards, one major network show, a British invasion, and a cable powerhouse. Breaking Bad just had its series finale. Bet on it. (If it isn’t, Downton Abbey is our prediction. Everyone loves Downton.)

Golden Globes 2014 Nominees for Best Actor in a Television Drama Series

Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”
Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan”
Michael Sheen, “Masters of Sex”
Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards”
James Spader, “The Black List”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions:It won’t be Spader or Sheen. It is unlikely to be Schrieber. That leaves us with Spacey and Cranston. This is a toss-up.

Golden Globes 2014 Nominees for Best Comedy Series

“The Big Bang Theory”
“Brooklyn 99″
“Girls”
“Modern Family”
“Parks and Recreation”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: This is especially tight. Parks and Recreation never gets the recognition it deserves, and it probably won’t this year. Brooklyn 99 might win since it’s getting a serious nomination. But one of those fan favorites (The Big Bang Theory, Girls, Modern Family) will probably get that win. Feels like another Girls year.

Jason Bateman, “Arrested Development”
Don Cheadle, “House of Lies”
Michael J. Fox, “The Michael J. Fox Show”
Jim Parsons, “The Big Bang Theory”
Andy Samberg, “Brooklyn 99″
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: Michael J. Fox is who they’ll want to win. Jim Parsons is too easy. They won’t think Samberg deserves it yet. Don Cheadle will win, and remind people about the Showtime series.

Zooey Deschanel, “New Girl”
Lena Dunham, “Girls”
Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie”

“American Horror Story: Coven”
“Behind the Candelabra”
“Dancing on the Edge”
“Top of the Lake”
“White Queen”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: White Queen has the historical edge, and it was just unknown enough to be a winner that will feel unlikely.

Matt Damon, “Behind the Candelabra”
Michael Douglas, “Behind the Candelabra”
Chiwetel Ejiofor, “Dancing on the Edge”

Helena Bonham Carter, “Burton and Taylor”
Rebecca Ferguson, “The White Queen”
Jessica Lange, “American Horror Story: Coven”
Helen Mirren, “Phil Spector”
Elisabeth Moss, “Top of the Lake”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: Jessica Lange is the solid choice. Rebecca Ferguson would be especially well-deserved, though.

Golden Globes 2014 Nominees for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television

Josh Charles, “The Good Wife”
Rob Lowe, “Behind the Candelabra”
Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”
Corey Stoll, “House of Cards”
Jon Voight, “Ray Donovan”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: It has to be Aaron Paul because it’s his last chance with Breaking Bad. Twitter wants to see how the “so-in-love-it’s-almost-gross” Aaron Paul and his new wife, Lauren Parsekian, will celebrate. The rest are just lucky to be considered as understudies for the win.

Monica Potter, “Parenthood”
Sofia Vergara, “Modern Family”
Golden Globes 2014 Predictions: When there’s Modern Family wins, all of America feels like it’s getting a personal hug. Plus, Sofia Vergara will always show cleavage. She’s got this in the bag, whether she deserves it the most or not.
