The Golden Globe Awards kick off Sunday night at 8pm. We’ll watch hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (two of the funniest comedians on TV, in our humble opinion) dole out jokes and awards on our new Panasonic PT-AE8000U projector. (We know you’re jealous.)
Here are the shows, actors and movies we’ll be rooting for Sunday night.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey host Sunday night’s Golden Globes
Best television series – “Breaking Bad”
Who would have thought watching one man’s descent from dedicated school teacher and loving suburbanite family man into a meth-dealing, narcissistic sociopath could be so addictive?…
Best performance by an actor in a television series – Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”
…And who would have ever picked Hal from “Malcolm in the Middle” to play the part? If anyone ever deserved an acting award, it’s Brian Cranston.
Best television series – “Modern Family”
Because of this line: “I’m a cool dad, that’s my thang. I’m hip, I surf the web, I text. LOL: laugh out loud. OMG: oh my God. WTF: why the face.”
Best performance by an actress in a television series – Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation”
Tina Fey is also up for an award in this category. We vote for Amy because Tina’s show, “30 Rock”, airs five repeats for every original episode.
Best performance by an actor in a television series – Alec Baldwin
Our favorite elitist, out-of-touch and overpaid executive is hands-down Jack Donaghy
Best motion picture – “Les Miserables”
Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of the world’s longest running musical lives up to its hype despite an underwhelming performance by Russell Crowe. (Learn to sing, man!)
Best performance by an actor in a motion picture, comedy or musical – Hugh Jackman, “Les Miserables”
Homeboy didn’t drink water for 24 hours to capture the emaciated look of protagonist Jean Valjean. (Meanwhile Russell Crowe drank beer and napped. Seriously, did Crowe know he was on camera?)
Best performance by an actress in a supporting role – Anne Hathaway, “Les Miserables”
The tears were real. The shaved head was real. The singing was real. There is nothing more to say.
Best motion picture, drama – “Lincoln”
Daniel Day-Lewis’ performance as Abraham Lincoln gives that handsome but flawed period piece the edge over its competition…
Best actor, drama – Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln”
…He inhabits his role so thoroughly, you forget you’re watching an actor at work.
