Golden Globe Predictions: Best TV Series – Comedy/Musical

Oddly enough, the only previously-nominated show recognized last year was Entourage, which has been nominated every year it’s aired for this award. The show’s reviews have been dwindling, but will Globe voters abandon the show? They tend to favor new, hot shows, something that’s missing entirely this year. Last year’s winner “Extras” ended, and this year’s hot new British show “Secret Diary of a Call Girl” didn’t air enough episodes in 2008 to compete (even if that’s not the reason, it’s not eligible). Last year’s nominees Pushing Daisies and 30 Rock are likely safe, and I do hope that Californication can get nominated once again. I think this is where Chuck comes in and breaks into the field, one year late, though that thunder could be stolen by The Big Bang Theory or Kath & Kim. The Globes don’t nominate shows they’ve given up on, but I don’t think it’s a complete lost cause for The Office, Ugly Betty, and Weeds.

Predicted five:
