The Golden Globes are this Sunday hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  As we did with the Emmys, we are providing you with our thoughts on who should win (and who will think will actually win).  Again, we are working within the parameters of who was actually nominated, even if don’t necessarily agree with some nominations.  And, while the Golden Globes, honor both film and TV, since this is a television blog, we will only be discussing the TV related nominations.  That being said, if American Hustle doesn’t win everything, then this is a world I don’t want to live in.  Here we go:
