'Variety' Picks Six Likely New-Show Golden Globe Contenders

Among them, The Mindy Project and Nashville

Trade publication Variety has chosen six of this season's new TV shows that it believes have a shot at taking home a Golden Globe during their first year on the air. But, it says, there are many returning shows that have already been proven as critical success stories so the odds of a newbie taking home the gold may not be a guarantee.

From HBO, Variety believes the two new shows with the best chances of winning are Girls, which is kind of like a modern version of Sex and the City, as well as Veep, a comedy that examines what the country would be like if the country had a female vice president (portrayed by Julia Louis-Dreyfus).

Also on Variety's short list are two series from NBC - Revolution and Go On. Revolution is kind of like a new-age Twilight Zone and is a direct descendant of Lost. Go On is on the opposite side of the spectrum, as a sitcom that takes place in the world of doctor-patient relationships.

On ABC, the new show that is getting all the buzz is Nashville, a throwback to the days of primetime soap operas a la Dallas and Knot's Landing. The acting and plot lines have been critically acclaimed, meaning a Golden Globe could be in this show's (potentially near) future.

And finally, the show that has been getting more publicity from its network probably than any other series, The Mindy Project. Although its viewership numbers have been declining, critics inexplicably continue to praise the arrogant Mindy Kaling on her new show.

The Golden Globes kick off the Hollywood award season and are often looked to as the barometer for the succeeding Emmys. We'll see what happens.
