With the awards season officially underway, up next is The Golden Globe Awards on NBC on Sunday at 8 p.m., which honors the best in movies and television. As one of the more difficult awards shows to predict—there is often no rhyme or reason to who will win—here are my picks (who should win and who will win) in the television categories.

Big Love (HBO)
Dexter (Showtime)
House (Fox)

30 Rock (NBC)
Entourage (HBO)
Glee (Fox)
Modern Family (ABC)
The Office (NBC)

David Duchovny, Californication (Showtime)
Matthew Morrison, Glee (Fox)
