Golden Globe Awards review Tina Fey Amy Poehler Homeland Girls Game Change TV Entertainment News52396408

The television categories at this year's Golden Globe Awards offered up a lot of the expected plus a couple of interesting surprises. (Read Chris's review of film awards here.) 

THE GOOD
It can't be said often enough ... Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were incredibly funny, charming, witty and everything you would want in hosts. Bring them back!!

The presentation of their category of Best TV Comedy Actress with Fey holding onto Jennifer Lopez and Poehler boozing it up with George Clooney was priceless.

The wins by "Homeland" were expected but also deserved for a great second season.

The same goes for Julianne Moore ("Game Change") and Kevin Costner ("Hatfields and McCoys").

The show itself was very well-paced, full of entertaining presenters. We needed more of Fey and Poehler, though. They disappeared for some long stretches.

THE BAD
While "Girls" and Lena Dunham are certainly the hot commodities, the show is just not funny at all. I absolutely do not get the appeal.

Can't something be done about those amazingly long walks that the TV people (and the audience) must suffer. It really drags the show down.

THE UGLY
What exactly does Dame Maggie Smith do on the very good "Downton Abbey" that deserves to be showered with award after award? Especially when she never shows up to receive them.

While I usually like Don Cheadle, "House of Lies" is pretty much unwatchable.

TV stars not even bothering to show up: winner Ed Harris, Alec Baldwin, Woody Harrelson, Clive Owen and Sigourney Weaver.
