Since odds are good you missed tonight’s abbreviated Golden Globe Ceremony, here are the list of winners.
DRAMATIC TV SERIES: MAD MEN
TV Addict’s Take: The Hollywood Foreign Press loves to award television’s next big thing. How long until the rest of North America catches on?
BEST ACTOR TV DRAMA: JON HAMM, MAD MEN
TV Addict’s Take: We get it, Jon Hamm is television’s next big thing. But would it have killed the Hollywood Foreign Press to recognize the CURRENT big thing Michael C. Hall? It may, depending on how much award recognition means to Dexter Morgan.
BEST ACTRESS TV DRAMA: Glenn Close, Damages
TV Addict’s Take: As if there was any doubt.
TV SERIES, MUSICAL OR COMEDY: EXTRAS
TV Addict’s Take: Would I loved to have seen 30 ROCK win? Absolutely. That said, who can argue with the brilliance of Ricky Gervais’ follow up to THE OFFICE. Now the only question remaining is what’s he is going to do for an encore?
BEST ACTOR, TV MUSICAL OR COMEDY: DAVID DUCHOVNY, Californication
TV Addict’s Take: When you look like David Duchovny, you should need to do more than play an over-sexed, alcoholic, emotional train-wreck to win an award. Alec Baldwin was robbed.
BEST MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION: LONGFORD
TV Addict’s Take: I’m not even going to pretend to know what LONGFORD is.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MINISERIES OR A MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION: QUEEN LATIFAH
TV Addict’s Take: After last week’s People’s Choice Awards, I thought the only thing on “Life Support” was Queen Latifah’s career. Zing!
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MINISERIES OR A MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION: JIM BROADBENT
TV Addicts’ Take: So this LONGFORD thing’s apparently good, no?
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION: SAMANTHA MORTON
TV Addict’s Take: Raise you hand if you actually saw LONGFORD.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION: JEREMY PIVEN
TV Addict’s Take: How different is Jeremy Piven really from the narcissistic Hollywood agent he plays on ENTOURAGE? Ted Danson was robbed for his career rejuvenating turn as a narcissistic and power mad CEO.
