Although “Modern Family” did not win the Golden Globes, Sofia Vergara looked great when she walked the red carpet of the 67th Annual Golden Globe awards in a pale gray gown with a swipe of crimson.

The 2010 Golden Globe nominees will be announced in less than 24 hours and I’m already starting to get excited — not only is this my favorite out of all the award shows (the stars of TV and film all in one place? Heaven!) but 2009 finally offered up so many small screen contenders, the winners shouldn’t be easily predictable.

And while I will weigh in with my theatrical thoughts after the nominations are announced at 8:30 a.m., I wanted to take this opportunity and speak my mind about the TV categories. There are eight names I desperately hope are not only uttered tomorrow, but also on Jan. 17 — when the winners are crowned!

Best Series, Comedy: “Modern Family”

Although “Modern Family” continues to be referred to as “the funniest new show of the year” I think it’s about time we take the word “new” out of that sentence. Not since “Arrested Development” has one series made me laugh out loud with such consistency. And like its dysfunctional family grandfather, I not only laugh at the ridiculous situations this family gets themselves into, but the brilliantly layered writing that requires multiple viewings.

First-year show creators, producers hope for Golden Globe nomination

“Modern Family,” “Glee,” “Community” and “The Good Wife” are some of the breakout shows that could get a nod.

It’s no wonder the Golden Globes have a reputation for being more fun than the rather stately affairs that usually bring out Hollywood’s A-list. After all, broadcasting live from the Beverly Hilton on Jan. 17 and keeping the Champagne flowing is bound to loosen things up. But the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s biggest night is also known for being ahead of the curve when it comes to honoring first-season TV shows — partly because of being the first TV-related ceremony of the calendar year and partly because of its envelope-pushing attitude.

This season offers a ballroom full of potentials that could strike the fancy of the HFPA’s 83 voting members — among them “Modern Family,” “FlashForward” and “The Good Wife.”

On the comedy side, ABC’s “Modern Family” seems to have put a spring in the steps of critics. Although executive producers Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are modest about the show’s success, Levitan is happy for the recognition. “One of the reasons that it might be striking a chord is because there’s a sense of optimism,” Levitan says. “We don’t try to dodge emotion.”

Lloyd, who went to many an Emmy ceremony during his years on “Frasier,” says that seeing the show nominated as a whole would be a thrill. “There are lots of individual awards that come and go, and they’re wonderful, but they can have the effect of making people feel just a bit left out. Because [the Globe] recognizes everybody who works on the show, that’s one that you can really rally behind.”
