Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a TV Series – Drama

My predictions: 3/5, missing Baker and Paxton
Who’s missing: Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)

So the Globes are never going to be interested in “Breaking Bad,” despite having a full thirteen episodes to consider this year. And it’s a real pity, especially after Gabriel Byrne’s win in this category last year and the strong showing for the series, that they’ve already forgotten about “In Treatment.” Clearly “Big Love” will never escape their attention, as Bill Paxton earns a nomination after his show took a year off the air. Newcomer Simon Baker (The Mentalist) is also here in traditional Emmy copycat fashion, joined by expected and deserving nominees Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), and Hugh Laurie (House).

Who could win? I think this is Hall’s year.
