Hey, TV viewer! When I'm not discussing TV on this site, you can find me doing daily TV updates on Facebook and Tumblr. You can also follow me on Twitter. I'm on these social sites talking TV all day, all the time!

2006's Best Part 3 - 2007 Golden Globe Nominees

Unlike the Emmy's, Golden Globe Nominees do not have to submit any tapes (of their work) to the jurors for consideration. They are simply nominated by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA)...and HFPA members don't actually have to watch the shows or see performances, they just have to "like" them. Weird huh? So, what does one expect? Some are recognized not exactly for their talent or how actually good a show is. Some are in the list for PR purposes. In the local equivalent, this is like the PMAP/EnPress awards we have here. And you know how much (or how little) credibility there is in that.

Any TV show that has aired between January 1, 2006 to December 21, 2006 is eligible for Golden Globes 2007. Awards night is on January 15, 2007. (That's the 16th to us on Phil TV)

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
24 (FOX)
BIG LOVE (HBO)
GREY’S ANATOMY (ABC)
HEROES (NBC)
LOST (ABC)

I'm very surprised Lost is in the list.
Snubbed: Brothers and Sisters and even as I have not seen any episode of it yet I have a feeling Friday Night Lights was also snubbed.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
PATRICIA ARQUETTE, MEDIUM
EDIE FALCO, THE SOPRANOS
EVANGELINE LILLY, LOST
ELLEN POMPEO, GREY’S ANATOMY
KYRA SEDGWICK, THE CLOSER

Ellen Pompeo, Evangeline Lilly? I watch their shows and love GA but really now?
Snubbed (in a major way!): Sally Field, Brothers and Sisters

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
PATRICK DEMPSEY, GREY’S ANATOMY
MICHAEL C. HALL, DEXTER
HUGH LAURIE, HOUSE
BILL PAXTON, BIG LOVE
KIEFER SUTHERLAND, 24

Again...a nomination for McDreamy? On the other hand, I think it's a competition between Hugh Laurie and Keifer Sutherland only.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES (ABC)
ENTOURAGE (HBO)
THE OFFICE (NBC)
UGLY BETTY (ABC)
WEEDS (SHOWTIME)

Will win: The Office

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES –COMEDY OR MUSICAL
MARCIA CROSS, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
AMERICA FERRERA, UGLY BETTY
FELICITY HUFFMAN, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE
MARY-LOUISE PARKER, WEEDS

Would like to win: America Ferrera
Will likely win: Huffman (who I love!) or Dreyfus

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
ALEC BALDWIN, 30 ROCK
ZACH BRAFF, SCRUBS
STEVE CARRELL, THE OFFICE
JASON LEE, MY NAME IS EARL
TONY SHALHOUB, MONK

Will win: Steve Carell or Alec Baldwin. And I don't have a problem with that. With only eight episodes to 30 Rock on TV so far, Alec Baldwin gets a GG nomination. And this line-up is all NBC.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
EMILY BLUNT, GIDEON’S DAUGHTER
TONI COLLETTE, TSUNAMI, THE AFTERMATH
KATHERINE HEIGL, GREY’S ANATOMY
SARAH PAULSON, STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP
ELIZABETH PERKINS, WEEDS

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
THOMAS HADEN CHURCH, BROKEN TRAIL
JEREMY IRONS, ELIZABETH I
JUSTIN KIRK, WEEDS
MASI OKA, HEROES
JEREMY PIVEN, ENTOURAGE

This category has robbed two categories as it combines comedy/drama supporting actors into one category. I wonder what's the reason for this...budget cuts? Bwaha!
