The Globes’ TV nominees: Who we’re rooting for

Best Series, Drama
Commander in Chief
Grey’s Anatomy
Lost
Prison Break
Rome
EW pick Lost. The field is rife with newcomers — and we know the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves anything shiny and new — but Lost remains the most thrilling, conspiracy-rich drama on television.
Dark horse Grey’s Anatomy

Best Series, Musical or Comedy
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Desperate Housewives
Entourage
Everybody Hates Chris
My Name Is Earl
Weeds
EW pick Entourage. Hands down the fastest, funniest 30 minutes of television this season. Except for maybe Arrested Development and The Office…which weren’t nominated.
Dark horse My Name Is Earl

Best Actor, Drama
Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy)
Matthew Fox (Lost)
Hugh Laurie (House)
Wentworth Miller (Prison Break)
Kiefer Sutherland (24)
EW pick Laurie. We love Fox and Dempsey, but it’s never wise to bet against the House! Especially when Laurie makes his character so engaging and enraging.
Dark horse Miller

Best Actress, Drama
Patricia Arquette (Medium)
Glenn Close (The Shield)
Geena Davis (Commander in Chief)
Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer)
Polly Walker (Rome)
EW pick Walker. Her brilliant work as Caesar’s she-devil niece is the highlight of HBO’s sword-and-sandals series.
Dark horse Sedgwick

Best Actor, Musical or Comedy
Zach Braff (Scrubs)
Steve Carell (The Office)
Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
Jason Lee (My Name Is Earl)
Charlie Sheen (Two and a Half Men)
EW pick Lee. Hate to see our perennial fave Braff passed over again, but Lee rocks as a ‘stached ex-sinner.
Dark horse Carell

Best Actress, Musical or Comedy
Marcia Cross
Teri Hatcher
Felicity Huffman
Eva Longoria
(all Desperate Housewives)
Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds)
EW pick Huffman. The drama may just be getting over its creative hangover, but Huffman’s multitasking mama is still the life of the party.
Dark horse Parker

Best Supporting Actor
Naveen Andrews (Lost)
Paul Newman (Empire Falls)
Jeremy Piven (Entourage)
Randy Quaid (Elvis)
Donald Sutherland (Commander in Chief)
EW pick Piven. It’s a shame that the excellent Andrews has to compete against comedy and telepic stars, but Piven’s Ari is pure Gold.
Dark horse Newman

Best Supporting Actress
Candice Bergen (Boston Legal)
Camryn Manheim (Elvis)
Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy)
Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds)
Joanne Woodward (Empire Falls)
EW pick Oh. Dr. Yang’s miscarriage tragedy won our hearts — and our vote.
Dark horse Bergen
