Golden Globe TV Nominations: A "Hiro" Is Honored

Obviously most of the Golden Globe attention goes to the movie nominees, but since I’m a TV blogger, my focus is on the TV awards.

And even though I’m a little bummed that neither Gregory Itzin nor Jean Smart received any Globe love, I couldn’t be happier for Masi Oka, the loveable Hiro of “Heroes,” who did receive a nod.

Here’s the list:

Drama Series:
“Big Love”
“Grey’s Anatomy”

Patricia Arquette, “Medium”
Edie Falco, “The Sopranos”
Evangeline Lilly, “Lost”
Ellen Pompeo, “Grey’s Anatomy”
Kyra Sedgwick, “The Closer”

Patrick Dempsey, “Grey’s Anatomy”
Michael C. Hall, “Dexter”
Hugh Laurie, “House”
Bill Paxton, “Big Love”
Kiefer Sutherland, “24”—WOO HOO!

Comedy Series:
“Desperate Housewives”
“The Office”
“Ugly Betty”

Marcia Cross, “Desperate Housewives”
America Ferrera, “Ugly Betty”
Felicity Huffman, “DH”
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “The New Adventures of Old Christine”
Mary-Louise Parker, “Weeds”

Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”
Zach Braff, “Scrubs”
Steve Carell, “The Office”
Jason Lee, “My Name Is Earl”
Tony Shalhoub, “Monk”

I won’t list the mini-series and movie categories for you since most of them are from HBO projects that many of us have never seen. I will mention, however, that Matthew Perry received a nomination for “The Ron Clark Story.”

The cruelest Globe categories have to be Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role in a Television Series, Movie or Mini-Series because they lump everyone together—comedy, drama, whatever:

Actress in a Supporting Role:
Emily Blunt, “Gideon’s Daughter”
Toni Collette, “Tsunami, the Aftermath”
Katherine Heigl, “Grey’s Anatomy”
Sarah Paulson, “Studio 60”
Elizabeth Perkins, “Weeds”

Actor in a Supporting Role:
Thomas Haden Church, “Broken Trail”
Jeremy Irons, “Elizabeth I”
Justin Kirk, “Weeds”
Masi Oka, “Heroes”
Jeremy Piven, “Entourage”

The Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC January 15th at 8 p.m., but I won’t be watching since that’s the second night of the “24” premiere. Thanks a lot, NBC…
