Here Are Your 2014 Golden Globes Nominees, Featuring Tatiana Maslany, Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and More


Coming right on the heels of yesterday's SAG Award nominations are the nominees for the drunker, shinier Golden Globe Awards. The 71st annual event will take place on Sunday, January 12 and will once again be hosted by reigning queens of comedy Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Early this morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the 2014 nominees with a few very welcome surprises, and a few not so surprising snubs... yeah, I'm looking at you Homeland. The Globes are known for this; they often recognize younger shows that are very hot at the moment, and honor individuals other award shows won't touch—deserving or not.

This year's surprise nominees include freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine and its star Andy Samberg. The HFPA also gave nods to Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany (who's currently battling it out with Once Upon a Time's Lana Parrilla for Best Dramatic Actress in our own Best of 2013 Awards) and Parenthood's Monica Potter. Both women turned in critically acclaimed performances on their respective series, but aside from a Critics' Choice Award for each, neither have really received the recognition that many think they deserve. Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul also received a nomination for his stellar work as Jesse Pinkman in the series' final season this summer. Despite having won two Emmys for the role, this is the first time he's been nominated for a Golden Globe.

Keep reading for the full list of television nominees!


BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA

Breaking Bad

Downton Abbey

The Good Wife

House of Cards

Masters of Sex

This category has so many worthy contenders that I know it must be difficult to narrow the list down to five nominees. And I know my wish for Justified to receive some love will never come to fruition, but Downton Abbey? The sudsy drama from across-the-pond was so wonderful and different when it premiered, but I don't know that its third season deserves to be listed alongside the likes of the final season of Breaking Bad, and the freshman seasons of Masters of Sex and House of Cards. That spot could have easily gone to Game of Thrones, Orphan Black or The Americans. It's nice to see The Good Wife sneak in a nomination to represent network television though. 

Notably absent: two-time winner Homeland, Game of Thrones, Mad Men


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES  – DRAMA

Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad

Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan

Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex

Kevin Spacey, House of Cards

James Spader, The Blacklist

Remember when I said the Golden Globes often honored individuals that no one else would touch? Sometimes they're deserving, but something they're so WTF you're just dumbfounded. That's this year's nomination for Liev Schreiber. It's not that Schreiber isn't a good actor, but look at his competition. Bryan "Three-Time Emmy Winner" Cranston! James "I Am Nominated For All The Things" Spader, Kevin "I'm Actually a Movie Star" Spacey! Michael "I Also Star In Movies That Win Awards Sometimes" Sheen. In the words of Regina George, I think someone nominated him as a joke or something. 

Notably absent: Jon Hamm, Damien Lewis (last year's winner), Steve Buscemi


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA

Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black

Taylor Schilling, Orange Is the New Black

Kerry Washington, Scandal

Robin Wright, House of Cards

It would be easy to litter this category with cable actresses, so it's nice to see that the HFPA still recognizes all the great work Julianna Margulies is doing on The Good Wife after she was shut out at this year's Emmy Awards. And it's about damn time someone gave Tatiana Maslany the credit she deserves for starring in what is essentially a one-woman show. Taylor Schilling is also a nice surprise.

Notably absent: Claire Danes (last year's winner)


BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL

The Big Bang Theory

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Girls

Modern Family

Parks and Recreation

My first instinct was, "Where's New Girl"? Then I remembered Season 3 (the eligibility period for the Golden Globes is the calendar year, not the TV season calendar). It's surprising to see Brooklyn Nine-Nine in the same category as Girls and Parks and Recreation, but I don't really hate this list. I mean, Modern Family's nomination is boring, but it's something that was going to happen anyway, so I won't fight it.

Notably Absent: Veep, Arrested Development, 30 Rock


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Jason Bateman, Arrested Development

Don Cheadle, House of Lies

Michael J. Fox, The Michael J. Fox Show

Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is quite an interesting list of nominees. Obviously, only the Devil himself would talk shit about Michael J. Fox, so I'll just say it's a pleasant surprise to see the HFPA honoring for him for a series that is, unfortunately, not spectacular. Nominating Jim Parsons is standard awards show fare these days, but the recognition is wholly deserved as his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper continues to be wonderful. I could take or leave Don Cheadle, am slightly confused by Andy Samberg's nomination (but find it refreshing), and completely expected Jason Bateman's appearance on this list.  

Notably absent: Alec Baldwin


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Zooey Deschanel, New Girl

Lena Dunham, Girls

Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep

Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation

This is a list of ladies in comedies. It's predictable, but not in a bad way. I don't even hate it, I just can't seem to muster up anything to say about it. 

Notably absent: Tina Fey


BEST MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

American Horror Story: Coven

Behind the Candelabra

Dancing on the Edge

Top of the Lake

The White Queen

Aside from the fact I still think it's ridiculous that American Horror Story is included in this category simply because it's an anthology series, these are easy nominations. Top of the Lake was a magnificent miniseries, and I'd like to see it take home some awards, but I have a feeling this will be the Behind the Candelabra show come January. 


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Matt Damon, Behind the Candelabra

Michael Douglas, Behind the Candelabra

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dancing on the Edge

Idris Elba, Luther

Al Pacino, Phil Spector

Remember the year Jimmy McNulty was up against Stringer Bell and Stringer won and they hugged and you felt like the world imploded from it all? Damn. Too bad the BBC canceled The Hour


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Helena Bonham Carter, Burton & Taylor

Rebecca Ferguson, The White Queen

Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven

Helen Mirren, Phil Spector

Elisabeth Moss, Top of the Lake

Any hope I had for Elisabeth Moss to win this category for Top of the Lake went out the window when I noticed Dame Helen Mirren's name above hers. And again when I noticed Jessica Lange's name. Congrats to Rebecca Ferguson, though, for cracking this category. Holy shit.


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINISERIES, OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Josh Charles, The Good Wife

Rob Lowe, Behind the Candelabra

Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad

Corey Stoll, House of Cards

Jon Voight, Ray Donovan

I'll never understand why the Golden Globes lump all of the supporting acting categories together into one, especially when you consider the wealth of talent in the drama categories recently. Not a single comedic actor earned a nomination this year, which might be cause for the HFPA to finally separate them, but it probably isn't. That being said, I couldn't be happier to see Aaron Paul's name in this list, because the Globes have never recognized his performance on Breaking Bad despite the two Emmys he has to his name. Rob Lowe ... is probably pissed he wasn't nominated as a lead actor, while Jon Voight is pretty much only in this list because he's Jon Voight. 

Notably absent: comedy actors, Mandy Patinkin, Peter Dinklage, Walton Goggins (I really just want him to get some awards love, okay?!) 


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINISERIES, OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Jacqueline Bisset, Dancing on the Edge

Janet McTeer, The White Queen

Hayden Panettiere, Nashville

Monica Potter, Parenthood

Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

Hayden Panettiere continues to steal the spotlight from Connie Britton on Nashville, which most people thought to be impossible until it actually happened. She's definitely the best part of the series and her work continues to blow me away. I'd argue she's much more of a lead than a supporting actor, though. Monica Potter, as I mentioned earlier, wholly deserves recognition for Parenthood, but not for this season. Her cancer storyline in Season 4 was definitely award worthy, but most of that season aired in 2012, not 2013. 

Notably absent: Anna Gunn, Maggie Smith (last year's winner), Michelle Fairley

Here's the live replay of this morning's announcements, as read by Aziz Ansari, Olivia Wilde, and Zoe Saldana.

Not that he has a chance in hell, but I would love to see Samberg take the award away from Parsons. I am running on a pure "Anything but BBT" platform. I would love to see Brooklyn Nine Nine and Parks and Rec take some awards, both of those are great shows and don't feel the need to use cheesy 80's laugh tracks. Die in a Fire - Big Bang Theory

Why it's so hard to understand why AHS:Coven is in the mini series category? It's a series that the narrative starts and ends in 12 episodes. That's it! If and when a AHS series continues its plot in a second year then yes! It should be consider as a tv series drama.

Fantastic news for Orphan Black. Maslany also clearly deserves to win out of that crop. Obviously Game of Thrones being snubbed hurts but what about Orange is the New Black? Isn't that trendy enough for the HFPA? It would have fit very nicely into the best comedy nominations (Brooklyn Nine Nine is basically a placeholder).

Also as much as I love Top of the Lake and Elizabeth Moss she does not deserve to win here, her Australian accent just was not up to scratch, sorry.

Its good to see Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex nominated for something. William Masters is not a likable character but Michael play him so well. On the same note, I think Lizzy Caplan did a wonderful job too and very surprised that she is not nominated at all.

The supporting actors nominations were wonderful. Finally someone is noticing the wonderful work of Josh Charles instead of only recognizing only the ladies of TGW.

Corey Stoll was fantastic in House of Cards.

And you guys are absolutely wrong about Jon Voight being there on the list because he is Jon Voight. I never really liked him in the movies but in Ray Donovan, he played the ass-hole father so bloody well, you do not hate Ray for wanting to kill his father. Did you guys even watch the show?

I doubt the show is as obscure as you might think. It seems to have come to much wider attention since Maslany's last award. The recognition here may be proof of that.

I'd be curious to know how much pressure is now on the show, let alone Maslany, to live up to this attention. They seem to have started out as this little show that hopefully could for BBCA and now must feel like they need to be something more.

Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, House of Cards, Masters of Sex

Where's "My Little Pony: Friendship is magic"? It has almost 8 million votes now, so it must be much better than everything else on TV.

OK, I'll be serious from now on. I like all of these shows, but four of them aren't even close to as good as Game of Thrones. So why isn't GoT nominated?


Bryan Cranston, Liev Schreiber, Michael Sheen, Kevin Spacey, James Spader

All of these people are really good, but Bryan Cranston is the only one who obviously belongs on the list. My first thought was that I would fill this list with only people from BB and GoT, but apparently this is for actors in leading roles only. That makes it much harder. I think I would replace Liev Schreiber and Kevin Spacey with Jeff Daniels and Peter Dinklage (I think Dinklage can be considered a lead, and I think that Damian Lewis hasn't had enough to do this year).

Julianna Margulies, Tatiana Maslany, Taylor Schilling, Kerry Washington, Robin Wright

Tatiana Maslany is the best of these. Taylor Schilling and Julianna Marguilies are great too. Kerry Washington is good, but I wouldn't nominate her for an award. It irritates me that Robin Wright keeps getting nominations for House of Cards. It's possible that she's doing her scenes better than most actresses would, but they could cut most of those scenes and not lower the quality of the show, because her character is boring and irrelevant. And she's not even the best actress on the show. If you need to nominate somone from House of Cards, nominate Kate Mara. She's great.

Also, how is Robin Wright considered for this category rather than supporting? Kate Mara is the leading female here. Robin Wright is just playing the wife of the leading male.


Josh Charles, Rob Lowe, Aaron Paul, Corey Stoll, Jon Voight

Just one category for all supporting roles?! That's the dumbest thing I've heard all week. There are probably five great actors in supporting roles for each great actor in a leading role. Take Breaking Bad for example: Bryan Cranston was considered the lead, while Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks and Mark Margolis were all considered supporting. (I think Aaron Paul was considered supporting mainly so that he wouldn't have to compete with Bryan Cranston for awards).

How about Game of Thrones? Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Rory McCann, Charles Dance, Iain Glen, Jack Gleeson, Conleth Hill, Aidan Gillen, Jerome Flynn and Liam Cunningham are all considered supporting.

Aaron Paul should win.


If Girls and Nurse Jackie are comedies, then so is Supernatural.

What, no love for Broadchurch or David Tennant? Also, not sure why Modern Family gets nominated all the time, the only time I think of Ed O' Neill is when he was Al Bundy on the vastly awesome Married... with Children. And why does Lana Parrilla never get nominated for anything big and shiny, that woman is insanely talented, even when sometimes the script on Once Upon A Time is so bad, not even Charlie Sheen would read it for a million dollars, she'd make it Emmy worthy.

I really enjoy Brooklyn Nine-Nine but I was definitely shocked to see it nominated. And personally, I feel Andy might be one of the weaker elements of the show.

That being said, it was definitely refreshing to see Modern Family and Mad Men monopolize everything. I think the rest of the world is slowly catching up. There's still a few head-scratchers and expected (but not necessarily deserved) nominations here, but there's a lot to like about these nominations.

I have to completely agree about lumping all the supporting actors together. That is completely idiotic.

If Robin Wright Penn put in a better leading female performance as the block of wood she played in 'House of Cards' than either Keri Russell ('The Americans') or Ivana Milicivec ("Banshee") then I know nothing. Those women deserve to be competing with Tatiana.Robin Wright did nothing as Foghorn Leghorn's wife to merit consideration as Best Actress - NOTHING.

Disappearance of Mad Men, absence of Game of Thrones, Modern Family and Downton Abbey running out of steam. And an overrated House of Cards. The drama categories will be won by Breaking Bad anyway, the other nominations are just for courtesy (even if BB didn't manage to put Anna Dunn in the list, best indication on how much the drama actress category is a tough competition!).
On the other hand, good to see Maslany, Schilling and Masters of Sex.
