Golden Globe Noms Include Many Flaming Nose Favorites

Right on the heels of Lisa's excellent AFI top ten TV show post, we should also mention that the 2010 Golden Globe nominations were released and many Flaming Nose favorites made the list. Entirely expected were nominations for The Office, Dexter, House, 30 Rock and, of course, our beloved Mad Men. But some newcomers graced the list as well, including HBO's touching (no puns!) and hilarious "Hung" as well as the amazing new Fox musical comedy "Glee". I'm also delighted to see Kevin Bacon on there for best actor for his brilliantly restrained performance in the heartbreaking soldier movie, "Taking Chance". It will also be interesting to see if the HBO special "Grey Gardens" (Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore) will garner more awards, after their Emmy nods.

The Golden Globe awards will be telecast on NBC at 8pm on January 17th. We love 'em because they almost always act as a harbinger of things to come with the Academy Awards a month later. It's also more of a party show, with relaxed stars swigging champagne and high-fiving each other around the dinner table. Nice to see knowing that the claws and fangs will come out when the much more competitive Oscars hit the air.

Thanks for covering the GG noms -- I, too, am rooting for Kevin Bacon for his marvelous work in "Taking Chance". He really should have received the Emmy. Not a showy performance but perfectly controlled and incredibly moving.

We'll be all over the Golden Globe coverage here at the Flaming Nose!
