Boardwalk Empire And Modern Family Lead Golden Globe Nominees image
The Golden Globe Award nominees were announced this morning-- you can find the full list here-- and as far as the TV Awards go, they managed to spread the love across a lot of different well-loved comedies and dramas. Boardwalk Empire had its first shot at awards glory since debuting earlier this fall and snagged a Best Drama nomination along with acting nods for stars Steve Buscemi and Kelly MacDonald. Another freshman drama, The Walking Dead, was also recognized in that top category, alongside regular favorites Dexter, Mad Men and The Good Wife.

The comedy category expanded to six for some reason, managing to include the under-the-radar Showtime hit The Big C alongside five more expected nominees-- 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory, Glee, Modern Family and Nurse Jackie. Notably absent was The Office, widely believed to be having a bit of a creative renaissance in its seventh season. As for acting nominations the biggest surprises were in the Best Actress, Drama category, where not only did Piper Perabo show up for Covert Affairs, but Katey Sagal snagged a nomination for Sons of Anarchy.

The Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories are particularly insane, because the Globes don't just lump together comedies and dramas here, but miniseries and TV movies as well. I have no idea how a person is supposed to judge Hope Davis's work as Hillary Clinton in The Special Relationship against Sofia Vergara on Modern Family, or David Strathairn in Temple Grandin against Chris Colfer on Glee. If I were in the Hollywood Foreign Press I'd probably just go with whoever I'd most want to have lunch with-- and this is why nobody lets me vote on awards
