article imageGolden Globes TV nominations; winners in bold

By Tim O'Brien     Jan 14, 2012 in Entertainment
UPDATES: Winners will be put in bold as the night goes on. NBC will indeed insert a seven second delay for this year's Golden Globes telecast Sunday.
With last year's slight uptick in viewership, NBC hopes for the same result this year, but want to make sure things do not get out and hand.
Here are the TV nomination for the Golden Globes, which will be handed on Jan. 15. Ricky Gervais is host.
Best drama series
"American Horror Story"
"Boardwalk Empire"
"Game of Thrones"
Note - Freshman series and it's a winner. Many expected "Boardwalk Empire" to win.
Best comedy series
"New Girl"
"Modern Family"
Note - Julie Bowen, on the red carpet, said she would jump in the pool if they won. Well?
Best Actor, drama
Steve Buscemi, "Boardwalk Empire"
Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad"
Kelsey Grammer, "Boss"
Jeremy Irons, "The Borgias"
Damian Lewis, "Homeland"
Note - Filmed in Chicago, "Boss" is a show that has a few episodes only, yet Grammer pulls it off. One could say an upset, but he is a TV veteran all the way.
Best actress, drama
Claire Danes, "Homeland"
Mireille Enos, "The Killing"
Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife"
Madeleine Stowe, "Revenge"
Callie Thorne, "Necessary Roughness"
Note - Margulies is always a favorite but not this year as "Homeland" scores again, this time with Daines.
Best Actor, comedy
Alec Baldwin, "30 Rock"
David Duchovny, "Californication"
Johnny Galecki, "The Big Bang Theory"
Thomas Jane, "Hung"
Matt LeBlanc, "Episodes"
Note - Never won for "Friends" and even got a nomination for "Joey." Just be yourself and win. Huh?
Best actress, comedy
Tina Fey, "30 Rock"
Amy Poehler, "Parks and Recreation"
Laura Dern, "Enlightened"
Zooey Deschanel, "New Girl"
Laura Linney, "The Big C"
Note: Somewhat of a surprise.
Best TV movie or miniseries
"Mildred Pierce"
"Too Big Too Fail"
"Cinema Verite"

Best actor in TV movie or miniseries
William Hurt, "Too Big Too Fail"
Hugh Bonneville, "Downton Abbey"
Idris Elba, "Luther"
Bill Nighy, "Page Eight"

Peter Dinklage, "Game of Thrones"
Paul Giamatti, "To Big To Fail"
Guy Pearce, "Mildred Pierce"
Tim Robbins, "Cinema Verite"

Jessica Lange, "American Horror Story"
Kelly Macdonald, "Boardwalk Empire"
Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey"
Sofia Vergara, "Modern Family"
Evan Rachel Wood, "Mildred Pierce"
