TV Nominees Slug It Out For Golden Globes

Jan 17, 2010 by Douglas McBride

The Hollywood Foreign Press might not see TV the same way you do.  Golden GlobeThey might not think about TV in exactly the same way that the folks who vote for the Emmys do either, but they see it just the same, whether you like it or not.  Of course you can’t get mad at all the nice foreign folks, until you feast your eyes on their picks though, right?  Then again, maybe you’ll love their picks.  Wherever you stand on the choices, the nominees for the 2010 Golden Globes are officially in, so read em’ and weep, or read em’ and rejoice.  The choice is yours.  Let us know what you think about these sexy photos, and all the big news below.

30 Rock

Most notable among the nominations here is Fox’s first year series Glee.  The musical comedy grabbed the most nods of any show, with four nominations, including best comedy series, trumping NBC’s “30 Rock,” AMC’s “Mad Men,” Showtime’s “Dexter,” and FX’s “Damages,” which all grabbed three nods each.  This year brought the love back to the major networks in the ‘Best TV Comedy or Musical Series’ category.  Four out of the five shows nominated for best comedy series came by way of the major networks this year, with HBO’s “Entourage,” the only exception to the rule.  The other players in the category included two from NBC: “30 Rock” and “The Office”, in addition to Fox’s “Glee,” and ABC’s “Modern Family.”

Mad Men

In contrast to the comedy category, the nominations for ‘Best TV Drama Series’ were ruled yet again by the cable networks.  Fox’s “House” was the only major network series to earn a nomination.  The category was rounded out by two offerings from HBO, with “Big Love,” and “True Blood,” up against Showtime’s “Dexter,” and AMC’s “Mad Men.”   The complete list of TV Nominations for the 2010 Golden Globes is included below the last photo.  Before the list, you’ll also find a cut and paste link to the official Golden Globes website, just in case you’d like to check out exactly how the votes stacked up.  The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs live on NBC tomorrow, Sunday at 5 PM PST and 8 PM EST, on Jan 17th, 2010.   Enjoy, and get back to us with your thoughts!

    What a great shot of the “Mad Men” cast up above and they deservedly walked away with a Golden Globe for best TV drama series…”Dexter” was right there with them though and it would have been nice to see the original show based on a serial killer with a code and a conscience walk away with the best show honors. Maybe, next year Dex…?

    I was thinking the same thing about that photo. They definitely know how to keep all the folks on Mad Men looking great. The whole environment they’ve created for that show is pretty impressive. Thanks for the comment, Rick.
