Whoever picks up the trophy on Sunday, his victory will probably be based on something less tangible than just merit. That would be buzz. The Globes like what’s hot, especially if they can recognize it before the Emmys get to do so.
On the other hand, no matter how good an actor is in his role, once the show has passed its freshness date, the Globe social butterflies will move on to the next budding bloom.
What does that mean for this year’s nominees — Steve Buscemi (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire), Bryan Cranston (AMC’s Breaking Bad), Jeff Daniels (HBO’s The Newsroom), Jon Hamm (AMC’s Mad Men) and Damian Lewis (Showtime’s Homeland)? Click on the gallery at the top of this article to see how Celebuzz has handicapped this race.
The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs Sunday at 8PM ET/5PM PT on NBC.
