Snappy Judgments: 2009 Golden Globe nods (TV)

Posted on

I’m Doing Cartwheels Over:

* Big love for Big Love! Nods for best drama, Bill Paxton (lead actor) and Chloe Sevigny (supporting actress)!

* True Blood for best drama!

* Glee‘s Jane Lynch up for best supporting actress!

* Modern Family makes the best comedy cut!

* Jane Adams’ hilarious Hung pimp scores a supporting actress mention!

* Edie Falco gets a lead actress shout-out for Nurse Jackie.

* John Lithgow carves out a best supporting nod for Dexter.

* Julianna Margulies up for The Good Wife.

I’m Rolling My Eyes About:

* Entourage for best comedy? Instead of Nurse Jackie?

* I love Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, but I’m not convinced he delivered one of the top five male comedy performances of the year.

WTF?!:

* Hey, HFPA: I’d like to introduce you to Jim Parsons. Solid actor. You should check out his work on this little show called The Big Bang Theory. Speaking of which…

* Bupkis for The Big Bang Theory, Friday Night Lights (Connie?! Kyle?!), Chuck (Zach?!), and Breaking Bad (Bryan?! Aaron?!)

* No Katey Sagal for Sons of Anarchy? Hasn’t the woman endured enough this season?

* Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss gets passed over.

* No love for the cast of Modern Family.

* Where’s Nathan Fillion? And John Noble? And Busy Phillips? And Amy Poehler?
