Cable Dominates Golden Globes Nominations with Worthy Picks

   Cable productions are doing something right.
   Nominations for the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards have been announced and cable TV shows dominated the list of worthy contenders. It was not a surprise that HBO dominated with 12 nominations, followed by Showtime. CBS and Fox were the leaders among the broadcast networks with six nods each for their shows. And AMC, the little cable network that has had the biggest impact in recent years, got some attention for its shows Mad Men and The Walking Dead, both up for Best Drama TV series. And there was a well-deserved Best Actor in a Drama nomination for the three-time Emmy-winning Bryan Cranston in AMC's Breaking Bad.
   The versatile Cranston was nominated for a Golden Globe years ago for his flawless comedic performance in Malcolm in the Middle. But leave it to the cable show to let him shine in a more shocking role. Steve Buscemi for Boardwalk Empire, Michael C. Hall for Dexter, Jon Hamm for Mad Men, and Hugh Laurie for House join the stellar lineup for the Best Actor trophy.
   Boardwalk Empire on HBO was the powerhouse and has a nomination for Best Drama TV series. It is up against Showtime's Dexter, CBS' The Good Wife, and the aforementioned Mad Men and The Walking Dead.
   For Best Comedy or Musical series, the choices are ABC's Modern Family, CBS' The Big Bang Theory, NBC's 30 Rock, Fox's Glee, and two from Showtime, The Big C and Nurse Jackie.
   The nominations in the miniseries/movies category are HBO's The Pacific, Temple Grandin, and You Don't Know Jack; Starz' Pillars of the Earth; and the Sundance Channel's Carlos.
  Of course there are many other nominations for outstanding acting plus all the film categories. And all can be debated. But going over the list, I'd give kudos to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for making some pretty good picks for TV. The Golden Globe Awards air Sunday, January 16 on NBC.
