2007 Golden Globes Television Winners

It just doesn’t get lamer than NBC’s Golden Globes “Winners Special” tonight, folks. Instead of the festival of drunken celebrities we’ve all come to know and love, we got Nancy O’Dell and a constipated-looking Billy Bush standing awkwardly behind a podium. The real highlight, though, was after each category was announced when Nancy would try unsuccessfully to banter with Billy’s hair, which has begun to resemble the ‘do sported by Loverboy’s Mike Reno in the 1980s. It’s okay, Billy, we’re all just working for the weekend, too.

For those of you lucky enough to miss it, here’s the complete list of television winners…

One thought on “2007 Golden Globes Television Winners

  1. Hmm. I’m surprisingly okay with those, at least in part because I loved “Longford”. Would have liked to have seen more “Pushing Daisies” love, but overall….I can live with that.

    Of course, that’s partly because I wasn’t crazy about their nominees in the first place. It hurts me not to love David Duchovny.
