Golden Globe Nominees: Best TV Series - Comedy/Musical

The nominees:

My predictions: 3/5, missing "Californication" and "Extras" in favor of "Flight of the Conchords", "The Office", and my sixth choice, "Weeds".

I am beyond ecstatic for "Californication". Much as I wish "Flight of the Conchords" was here, I can at the very least revel in the fact that the second-best new comedy of the year made it in. Too bad they had to drop "Weeds" from this category to make room. I am sick of "Extras" just because it is not that good, especially the second season of the show (though I find it impossible to discern what season is being nominated here, whether it is the show's second or the extra-special series finale I still have yet to see). "30 Rock" really inserted itself her after a nomination & win for Alec Baldwin last year. Even harder to believe, but utterly fantastic, is the fact that "Entourage" is now the longest-running nominee in this category, going on its fourth nomination.

Who will win? I hate to say it, but it is probably Extras, though newcomer Pushing Daisies may have enough steam to make it to the finish line.
