The Golden Globes are Gaga for Glee

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards won't be handed out until January 16, but a list of the TV people who can begin clearing out their trophy case to make make room for potential new hardware was released today. Glee led all TV shows with five nominations—four acting award nominations and one for Best Comedy or Musical. It received a nomination in every single category it was eligible for. Lost fans, avert your eyes. Not a single nomination for the sci-fi drama that said goodbye this year.

Here are the Golden Globe nominations in the television categories for 2011:

Best Drama
Boardwalk Empire
Dexter
The Good Wife
Mad Men (last year's winner)
The Walking Dead

And here we go, the first major nomination for The Walking Dead. It will be interesting to see whether The Emmys follow suit, but I'm not sure they will. Looks like zombies have replaced vampires, as this is the first time True Blood did not receive a nomination. What other notable shows are missing from this list? Lost, Breaking Bad, and House.

Best Comedy or Musical
30 Rock
The Big Bang Theory
The Big C
Glee (last year's winner)
Modern Family
Nurse Jackie

No big surprises here. But thank the lord someone finally had the sense not to put Entourage in there. What's missing? The Office, Weeds, Community.

Best Actor - Drama
Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Michael C. Hall, Dexter (last year's winner)
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Hugh Laurie, House

Buscemi, despite someone's insistence that he was miscast on Boardwalk Empire, joins an elite group of mainstays.

Best Actress - Drama
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife (last year's winner)
Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men
Piper Perabo, Covert Affairs
Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy
Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

Sagal gets a much-deserved nomination for Sons of Anarchy, and Perabo earns a surprise nomination. Does no Glenn Close-for-Damages nomination mean other awards shows will follow suit?

Best Actor - Comedy or Musical
Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock (last year's winner)
Steve Carell, The Office
Thomas Jane, Hung
Matthew Morrison, Glee
Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

Jim Parsons finally gets some recognition from the Globes, a few years too late. The odd man out? Californication's David Duchovny.

Best Actress - Comedy or Musical
Toni Collette, United States of Tara (last year's winner)
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Laura Linney, The Big C
Lea Michele, Glee

Not much has changed here, except for Linney replacing Courteney Cox since last year's ballot. Who's missing? Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation.

Best Supporting Actress in a Series or Miniseries
Hope Davis, The Special Relationship
Jane Lynch, Glee
Kelly Macdonald, Boardwalk Empire
Julia Stiles, Dexter
Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

Best Supporting Actor in a Series or Miniseries
Scott Caan, Hawaii Five-0
Chris Colfer, Glee
Chris Noth, The Good Wife
Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family
David Strathairn, Temple Grandin

Supporting actors and actresses get no respect, as they're all tied in together. There's a laundry list of worthy candidates who didn't get recognized, but with so few spaces to fill, that's unavoidable. Last year's winners: John Lithgow for Dexter and Chloe Sevigny for Big Love.

For a full list of nominations, head over to the official Golden Globes Awards Web site.

Did your favorite actors and shows get nominated? Who do you think got snubbed?

Oh, I hope Katey Segal wins her category! She's been amazing in SoA this year! Even though I like the good wife, I belive it is harder to portray Gemma Teller than Alicia Florrick..

The golden globes was ahead of the curve last year on awarding Glee the globe. But this year Glee was and is now a big glob of gluey over production. Katey Sagal still stands much higher than anyone in that category but will not win because her character is not mainstream enough. Piper Perabo, really? Big Bang Theory, how much nerdyness can a human brain endure? There's a leading and supporting actress on Modern Family? Don't get me wrong, Modern Family is one of my favorites.

Glee is really a bad show. Don't see why anybody watches it....

Not surprised that The Office isn't nominated for Best Comedy given the lacklustre Season 6. And yes, Community is missing. Haven't seen it but Joel McHale..??? Duh, it's gonna be a shoe-in. And it's gonna be tough for me to root for both Jim Parsons and Steve Carell for Best Actor in a Comedy D: And no, Glee should not win again. Am gonna root for 30 Rock for Best Comedy.

Fringe gets snubbed again. John Noble should have been nominated. Best of those nominated.

Someday, I hope, Community will get the recognition it deserves. Meanwhile I feel like a pioneer who has staked a claim on this great show before most of the rest of the world has discovered it.

"Weeds" is not missing from the best comedy nominations: it just does not deserve one. It has been going downhill since season four started and really should have been put out of its misery this season. I hate that I am still watching it!

Supernatural is a good show, but I'm not sure if its Emmy / Golden Globe material. Both leading actors do a good job, and the show's storytelling is good, but I wouldn't put it on the level of Breaking Bad or Dexter. The depth of the characters and their development is on another level in my opinion.



Overall, a lot of deserved nominations, especially Katey Sagal for Sons of Anarchy and Cranston for Breaking Bad. I feel Breaking Bad should have been nominated for best drama aswell, at the expense of The Good Wife or Mad Men. The latter being a very well made show, which for me lacks any real kick or reason to keep watching. Might just be me :D

I agree with #chasexy; Supernatural should win something! Jensen Ackles is awesome! It should win all categories!

No supernatural as usual. That show NEEDS to get some attention for the awesome act of Jensen Ackles at least!!!

no Fringe. sad. come on! john noble and anna torv had to play four characters total! still watch glee but it really wasn't that good this season except for chris colfer's performances

true blood should have won way back from their first season! and it's ironic that they just had their best season yet but they didn't even got recognized!

Suprised Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Bones, etc are still missing. The best television is always neglected because so called critics don't have the hots for them. Why would their opinion matter more than mine?

And once again, no love for NCIS. Thank God their fans love them (and continue to make them the #1 show on TV). Am I the only one who just doesn't get the obsession with the over-hyped, over-rated Glee?

There were a couple of good decisions but mostly the nominations suck.

Piper Perabo? Really and Nina Dobrev is not in the running for her excellent job as 2 characters on The Vampire Diaries. She plays evil vamp Katherine and one of the stars, Elena. I love Covert Affairs, but sure not for Piper.

The only surprise to me is Piper Perabo. Not that she wasn't good in Covert Affairs, I watched all the episodes and liked it very much, but there are so many women to nominate and she got one?

With consistently good scripts, acting, direction, production and lighting; SUPERNATURAL has continued to deliver good top level television. Now in it's 6th season it has continued to grow and improve whereas most series after 4 seasons start to loose their direction and flounder by the wayside so that views loose interest and the inevitable cancellation happens. It is totally amazing to me that SUPERNATURAL has missed out on awards. It may not be a high profile show on a top network but I truly think it deserves recognition by the industry.

Toni Collette, Edie Falco and Laura Linney are NOT comedians!!!!! Anyone who saw the last episode of The Big C and laughed needs to be in a Mental Hospital!

Isn't Breaking Bad returning later than usual in 2011, so it can't be in the nominations?
Reply
Flag
Add BIG C also!!!!! My guts just split open during each and every episode!!!!!
Matt Morrison/Thomas Jane are comedy actors in the same light as the others or ones that were dissed? Come on!!!!!!!
Why is SOA dissed so much?

And supporting actors are arranged in with comedy, dram, reaslity and whatever else they can think of.

What a mess this all is!!!! The lines are blurred!!!

Community and Breaking Bad got shafted. And Glee is totally overrated.

Community should be on there. That show is unbelievably brilliant.

Glee sucks. It's just a platform for some decent musicals -- as a show, the story is lame. I thought the latest season of Breaking Bad was awesome... I thought it should definitely be in the top drama category.

I'm a HUGE fan of Community, but I'm not surprised it wasn't nominated for best comedy.

I really like Hawaii Five-O and I like Covert Affairs a bit, but I'm surprised with Caan's and Perabo's nominations.

Worst globes ever! No noms for the modern family cast, lea michelle for best actress, seriously? M. Morrison can't even act, and although Glee is a good show the only one there who deserves a best actor/actress nom there is jane lynch. Total fiasco, won't even bother to watch!

Super happy about Katey Sagal, but Season 2 was much bigger for her and her character. Super, super sad about Lost... I was totally expecting some Community love, but alas No. And Fringe Fans... it's never going to happen. Sorry.

Congrats to Scott Caan!!!! He so deserves it, and I hope he wins!!

Okay. Let's be honest. If Glee didn't have music, it would have been cancelled before its first season's midseason finale. After episode two, the writing went majorly downhill, as did the characters and any hope of it being even somewhat realistic.

If Glee is up for awards, The Vampire Diaries should be as well. How could Nina Dobrev NOT be up for best actress for AMAZINGLY playing Elena Gilbert/Katherine Pierce. I call MAJ-or B.S. Plus, the scripts are incredible (unlike Glee's). Also, Candice Accola deserves to at least be nominated for best supporting actress in a series. Just sayin.

+1 for Heather Morris as Brittany on Glee. Best delivery ever.
