Lowdown: Globe voters do weird things in this category as well, but can't we say that nearly everywhere? But last year, they nominated Johnny Galecki and *not* Jim Parsons, so it's just a guessing game. They've nominated Charlie Sheen for "Two and a Half Men" and he won for "Spin City," so wouldn't it be amusing to see him get an "Anger Management" nod if Louis C.K. is snubbed? Not "amusing" at all, really. Nominating Matthew Perry would be welcoming back an old friend. Nominating Andrew Rannels would let them become the first Hollywood group to reward this Broadway favorite. And David Duchovny has four nominations for "Californication," which is just funny. Despite seven nominations and two wins from the Emmy voters, Jon Cryer has never even been nominated for a Globe, but he's always been in that ridiculous catch-all "supporting" category, so maybe this is his chance?
