Today is the day that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announces the nominees for the 2008 Golden Globe Awards.

Best Television Series – Drama
a. Big Love
b. Damages
c. Grey’s Anatomy
d. House
e. Mad Men
f. The Tudors

Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama
a. Michael C. Hall – Dexter
b. Jon Hamm – Mad Men
c. Hugh Laurie – House
d. Jonathan Rhys Meyers – The Tudors
e. Bill Paxton – Big Love

First of all, woo hoo.

Secondly, I watch 3 of the 6 nominated series, and both Grey’s Anatomy and House have jumped the shark. On waterskis. Yes, indeed. So that narrows the field to three.

As to the actors, Hamm is of course perfect in every way, but I only watch Hamm and Laurie. I do think it’s ironic that House has been referring to a Mormon character as “Big Love” on the show for the past bunch of episodes, and now he’s up against the star of Big Love.

Open discussion of these or any other nominations welcome. I know Roberta is having little flutters over Minnie Driver’s nomination for The Riches, and I’m flat-out thrilled about Holly Hunter for Saving Grace.


  One Response to “The Golden Globes! Two Nominations for Mad Men!”

  1. Another reminder that I go to fewer and fewer movies and watch less and less television these days. Still, I was glad to see that Michael C. Hall got nominated (but no "Dexter" in Best Drama? Boo!), and Cate Blanchett for "I'm Not There."

    *crosses fingers for Mad Men to win*
