Golden Globe and SAG Award Nominations

Greetings Tourists! 

Award season has begun a major kick-off with the announcement of both the Golden Globe and SAG Award nominees.  As always, I'm just focusing on the contenders for television, but you can find the full lists online.

The Globes have done a great job of adding new blood to the mix of nominees.  Gone is the Modern Family (ABC) and HBO domination of years past (though I do NOT appreciate the total Game of Thrones snub). 

I'm thrilled to see Orphan Black's (BBC America) Tatiana Maslany (above) and Orange is the New Black's (Netflix) Taylor Schilling up for Best Actress.  I discovered and binge-watched these two series this summer and they are fantastic.  Netflix is having a very good year, scoring additional multiple noms for House of Cards.  Starz is also on the map with its original movies The White Queen and Dancing on the Edge.  And Monica Potter FINALLY gets kudos for her terrific work on NBC's Parenthood.  Nice new noms for Hayden Panettiere for her role on ABC's Nashville and Kerry Washington for ABC's Scandal.

Of course there are past nominees as well, including The Big Bang Theory's (CBS) Jim Parsons, Modern Family's Ty Burell and Sofia Vergara and Veep's (HBO) Julia Louis-Dreyfus

But this year should belong, hands down, to Breaking Bad (AMC) and its leads Bryan Cranston (R), and Aaron Paul for their spectacular swan song performances.  Anna Gunn is sadly only nominated for a SAG Award, but I give her an honorary nomination for the Globe, too.

The SAG Award nominees are a lot of same-old-same old.  Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey AGAIN??  Really glad this is their last year for 30 Rock.  There are a lot of cross-over noms with the Globes - Elisabeth Moss (Top of the Lake), Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Jessica Lange (American Horror Story: Coven), among others.  HBO's Game of Thrones does get a nom here, and I'm happy for The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik for her nom.
