Golden Globes’ Truly Weird Supporting Actor Bids

The Golden Globes did very well in their dramatic nominations, including best-series bids for two new cable dramas, “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Walking Dead.”

The category that always makes me laugh, though, is the Globes’ supporting actor/actress slate in TV, which amounts to a bizarre catchall of sitcoms and dramas, movies and miniseries.

Here’s the (very deserving, mostly) list. See if you can make any sense of how to rate one against the other. Frankly, the only fair way to decide this would be a monkey throwing darts:

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

a. HOPE DAVIS — THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP

b. JANE LYNCH — GLEE

c. KELLY MACDONALD — BOARDWALK EMPIRE

d. JULIA STILES — DEXTER

e. SOFIA VERGARA — MODERN FAMILY

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

a. SCOTT CAAN — HAWAII FIVE-O  

b. CHRIS COLFER — GLEE

c. CHRIS NOTH — THE GOOD WIFE

d. ERIC STONESTREET — MODERN FAMILY

e. DAVID STRATHAIRN — TEMPLE GRANDIN
