Lowdown: This is going to be tough for Golden Globe voters. There are four nominees locked in and Jeff Daniels is mighty close to a lock. So that means voters will have to choose between last year's upset winner here, Kelsey Grammer, and a number of new candidates who fit the Globes mold perfectly. You have movie stars doing TV in Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Quaid and Jeremy Irons, who was nominated last year. You have foreign stars doing American accents in wildly popular shows in Jonny Lee Miller and Andrew Lincoln. And then you have "Downton Abbey" stars ready to burst onto the scene, including Hugh Bonneville, who was nominated in the Movie/Miniseries category last year. And just in case Globe voters are paying attention, Michael C. Hall has been nomination-worthy again this season and he's a former winner. I'd say to watch out for Miller, the candidate most people aren't paying attention to. He's completely in this group's wheelhouse.
