2007 Golden Globes Television Nominees

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its nominations for the 65th annual Golden Globes this morning and the biggest surprise among the television nominees was the head-scratching exclusion of The Office from the comedy series category.

The awards will be presented Jan. 13 and televised on NBC, although the ongoing writers strike could impact the telecast. If the WGA refuses to grant a waiver allowing guild writers to work on the ceremony’s script, it’s unknown how many presenters and nominees would be willing to cross the picket line in order to attend.

Look behind the cut for the complete list of television nominees…

  1. Every year the broadcast networks seem to inch closer and closer to being entirely shut out of awards season. Sometimes I think it’s the only reason they keep shows like The Office on the air at all.

    I’m finding the HFPA’s choices even more baffling than usual this year. I was glad to see Damanges get some love, but Californication? Seriously? And The Tudors? Not so much with the good, ya’ll. And someone please explain the appeal of Entourage to me, because I’ve tried, and I just do not get it.

  2. Mikaela, I now have this wonderful image in my head of Glenn Close sending each HFPA member a blood-stained bookend that somehow already has that member’s fingerprints on it…

  3. Bwah! Would each bookend be representative of the HFPA member’s home country? A bloody Eiffel Tower here; a gory Tower of Pisa there…
