My predictions: 4/5, picking O’Neill over Parsons
Who’s missing: Ed O’Neill (Modern Family), David Duchovny (Californication), Joel McHale (Community)
Proving that they like to mimic the Emmys, the Globes have finally nominated fan favorite Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), who took home the Emmy this past year (see the Best Supporting Actor category for further evidence of this trend). I’m so sad to see David Duchovny (Californication) undeservedly go (edit: commenter MS correctly points out that he was ineligible because his show last aired in December 2009), but so thrilled that Thomas Jane (Hung) hung on to his slot (no pun intended). I’m not sure why Matthew Morrison (Glee) still merits a mention, but whatever. And, of course, we have Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) and Steve Carell (The Office).
Who could win? Probably Parsons.
