Don't forget: The Globes are TONIGHT!

If you're not tuned in to the second half of 24, you may want to see what sort of inappropriate fashion is going on at the Beverly Hilton.

My picks:

Best TV Drama Series
Big Love
Grey's Anatomy
Even though I think 24 or Heroes has a better chance, I like Big Love by far.

Best Actress in a TV Drama
Patricia Arquette (Medium)
Edie Falco (The Sopranos)
Evangeline Lilly (Lost)
Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy)
Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer)
I love Kyra on this show, and I'm not really even that into detective shows. I don't think Ellen Pompeo is even that good on Grey's.

Best Actor in a TV Drama
Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy)
Michael C. Hall (Dexter)
Hugh Laurie (House)
Bill Paxton (Big Love)
Kiefer Sutherland (24)
This has to be the most competitive category; they all deserve this award. But I have to go with my favorite, Greg House.

Best TV Comedy
Desperate Housewives
The Office
Ugly Betty
Oooh, another tough one. This was a toss-up between The Office and Weeds. Ugly Betty deserves some recognition as well, but I don't think it quite reaches the standards of Office & Weeds. Based strictly on comedy value, I'll have to go w/ Office. Even though Weeds is probably my favorite show on TV.

Best Actress in a TV Comedy
Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives)
Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives)
America Ferrera (Ugly Betty)
Julia Louis-Dreyfus (The New Adventures of Old Christine)
Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds)
I would love, love, love to see America take this one. She is so awesome as Ugly Betty. Plus, I just want the world to see how beautiful she really is w/out the wig and fake eyebrows.

Best Actor in a TV Comedy
Alec Baldwin (30 Rock)
Zach Braff (Scrubs)
Steve Carell (The Office)
Jason Lee (My Name Is Earl)
Tony Shalhoub (Monk)
Although I understand Alec Baldwin is pretty good on 30 Rock, I've not seen that show. Still, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better weekly comedy performance than Steve Carell's. Excuse me one moment while I go to YouTube and try to find a clip of last year's speech.

Best TV Miniseries or Movie
Bleak House
Broken Trail
Elizabeth I
Mrs. Harris
Prime Suspect: The Final Act
Just throwing this one in to let you know that I ADORED Helen Mirren as Elizabeth I. Also, please notice that she's also the star of Prime Suspect. She is a goddess.

Best Supporting Actress in a TV Miniseries, Movie or Series
Emily Blunt (Gideon's Daughter)
Toni Collette (Tsunami: The Aftermath)
Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy)
Sarah Paulson (Studio 60)
Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds)
I didn't see the Tsunami movie, but I think Toni Collette is a pretty fabulous actress, so I imagine she was pretty great in it. Still, does it get any better than Weeds' Celia Hodes?

Best Supporting Actor in a TV Miniseries, Movie or Series
Thomas Haden Church (Broken Trail)
Jeremy Irons (Elizabeth I)
Justin Kirk (Weeds)
Masi Oka (Heroes)
Jeremy Piven (Entourage)
Even though everyone's drinking the Heroes Kool-aid, and you never stop hearing about Jeremy Piven on Entourage, Justin Kirk has created one of the greatest characters ever on TV on Weeds. I *heart* him.

Best Motion Picture - Drama
The Departed
Little Children
The Queen
Disclaimer: I've not seen any of these movies. My pick is based entirely on the fact that there is so much buzz about The Departed. Still, I wouldn't be surprized to see Babel pull a Crash and come out a winner.

Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Drama
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
The Devil Wears Prada
Little Miss Sunshine
Thank You for Smoking
OK, first of all? Devil wasn't all THAT great of a movie. Meryl Streep was good, but the movie itself? Ehh. I'm going with Dreamgirls, because I think it's the kind of film that awards judges go for.

Best Director - Motion Picture
Clint Eastwood (Flags of Our Fathers)
Clint Eastwood (Letters from Iwo Jima)
Stephen Frears (The Queen)
Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel)
Martin Scorsese (The Departed)
They almost have to, don't you think? Plus, those are two DIFFERENT Eastwood films? Are you sure?

Actress - Motion Picture - Drama
Penélope Cruz (Volver)
Judi Dench (Notes on a Scandal)
Maggie Gyllenhaal (SherryBaby)
Helen Mirren (The Queen)
Kate Winslet (Little Children)
This is probably wishful thinking b/c all the buzz seems to be about Penelope Cruz.

Actress - Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
Annette Bening (Running with Scissors)
Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine)
Beyoncé Knowles (Dreamgirls)
Meryl Streep (The Devil Wears Prada)
Renée Zellweger (Miss Potter)
This is my way of saying "Anybody But Beyonce"

Actor - Motion Picture - Drama
Leonardo DiCaprio (Blood Diamond)
Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed)
Peter O'Toole (Venus)
Will Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness)
Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland)
Just because it seems the obvious choice.

Actor - Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat)
Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest)
Aaron Eckhart (Thank You for Smoking)
Chiwetel Ejiofor (Kinky Boots)
Will Ferrell (Stranger than Fiction)
I think they might give him this one. Although personally, I thought Aaron Eckhart was pretty damn good in Thank You.

Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture
Adriana Barraza (Babel)
Cate Blanchett (Notes on a Scandal)
Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada)
Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls)
Rinko Kikuchi (Babel)
I'm pretty sure there's your one sure thing. Although Emily Blunt may have been the very best thing about Devil.

Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
Ben Affleck (Hollywoodland)
Eddie Murphy (Dreamgirls)
Jack Nicholson (The Departed)
Brad Pitt (Babel)
Mark Wahlberg (The Departed)
Does anyone else think it's weird to see so many leading men in the Supporting Actor category?

Leave your picks in the comments section. We'll be Live Blogging the Globes later, so come back this evening.

UPDATE: I will NOT be live-blogging the awards tonight because I totally forgot it was Monday (and not Sunday) b/c I did not have to work today - and I have somewhere to be this evening. But I will DVR the show.

I totally agree about Ellen Pompeo. She bugs on Greys Anatomy!!
