You may wish to also consider using a single rsync command :

rsync -auv --delete \
/Godfather/Documents \
/Godfather/Setups \
/Godfather/Pictures \
/Godfather/Backups \
/Godfather/Videos \
/Backup # backup destination

With this approach I am not sure which order the source directories will be copied? If the execution order is critical then you are probably best to stick to a separate command for each source directory in a script as has been previously suggested.

Finally, I recommend excessing extreme caution when using the --delete option.
I hope this helps.
