Golden Globe Predictions

Showtime; NBC; ABC; AMC

Sure, everyone is talking about Oscar nominations right now, but don't forget that we still have other awards to give out before then!

The Golden Globes are this Sunday, and while we've already shared our gut-reaction predictions on who will win on the TV side, we took some time to think about the nominees and we have some more predictions. It's time to look at the major TV categories and play the should win/will win game:

Best TV Series, Drama

Should Win: Breaking Bad. We love Homeland as much as the next person, but Breaking Bad really killed it this season. 

Will Win: Homeland. Everyone loves it, and rightfully so. Basically, we'd be happy with either show taking home the award.

Complete list of Golden Globe nominations

Best TV Series, Comedy

Should Win: Girls. A fresh comedy from the unique Lena Dunham was a breath of comedic fresh air in 2012.

Will Win: Modern Family. Because they win everything.

Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama

Should Win: What sucks about this category is that they all deserve to win, but all we keep thinking about is Damien Lewis' performance in Homeland's "Q&A" episode.

Will Win: Lewis was robbed last year, so hopefully the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will make up for it this time around.

Best Actor, TV Series Comedy

Should Win: Louis C.K. The universe needs to make up for giving the Emmy to Jon Cryer instead of the Louie writer, director, everything-er.

Will Win: We are optimistic that Louis C.K. will win big on Sunday.

Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama

Should Win: Clarie Danes continues to wow us on Homeland despite her unfortunate ugly-crying.

Will Win: Downton Abbey has so much buzz, Michelle Dockery could snatch it away from Danes, who was last year's winner.

Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy

Should Win: Amy Poehler, of course! Leslie Knope deserves more love than she's getting.

Will Win: Probably Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 2012's Emmy-winner in this category.

Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie

Should Win: Mandy Patinkin, who was a quiet force on Homeland, and quickly became our favorite TV character to watch each week. But Max Greenfield is equally entertaining to watch, and it would be an awesome surprise if he did win, so can it be a tie?

Will Win: Mandy Patinkin will win, or Eric Stonestreet will add another award to his pile.

Best Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie

Should Win: Maggie Smith, because who can argue with the Dowager Countess?

Will Win: It might finally be time for three-time nominee Sofia Vergara to go up on stage for this one.
