67th Golden Globe Nominations: Television

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association this morning announced the nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which award the best in film and television.  Following up on the Movies article, here are some highlights on the television front.

  • Fox’s freshman dramedy Glee leads the field with four nominations, including Best Television Series-Comedy or Musical plus three nominations in the acting category; Best Performance by an Actress-Comedy or Musical (Lea Michele), Best Performance by an Actor-Comedy or Musical (Matthew Morrison) and Best Performance in a Supporting Role (Jane Lynch).
  • After Glee, eight shows/programs tied with three nominations a piece: 30 Rock (including Best Television Series-Comedy or Musical), Big Love (including Best Television Series-Drama), Damages, Dexter (including Best Television Series-Drama), Georgia O’Keefe, Grey Gardens, Into the Storm and Mad Men (including Best Television Series-Drama).
  • Fox’s House and HBO’s True Blood round out the Best Television Series-Drama category, while the ABC newcomer Modern Family joins previously mentioned Glee and 30 Rock in the Best Television Series-Comedy or Musical category along with previous nominees Entourage and The Office.

Man, I’m really shooting for Modern Family to win this year, especially since it was nominated in just one category. Surprising not to see the show nominated in any of the acting categories given its brilliant cast. Especially with regards to Ty Burrell who week-in/week-out manages to turn in consistently hilarious performance as head of the Dunphy clan.

Although I am happy to see Neil Patrick Harris get nominated for How I Met Your Mother.

Complete list of nominations is included after the jump.
