Congrats to the cast of Glee on their Golden Globe Nominations! The noms were announced early this morning in Beverly Hills.

Check out the full list of noms HERE.

Glee noms:

  • Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series Comedy or Musical – Lea Michele
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series Comedy or Musical – Matthew Morrison
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television – Jane Lynch

The only nom missing is Chris Colfer in the Best Supporting Actor category. But it’s a tight field–the supporting noms are all lumped into one category unlike Best Actress and Actor, which are split into drama, comedy and miniseries.

  1. Congratulations to Glee and it’s cast. It’s a good show, I am glad that it has got some nominations the first year it’s been out.

  2. Love the whole cast, but Glee should definitely battle 30 Rock for best comedy or musical.

    Lea Michelle vs Tina Fey for best actress com/mus. Lea could be rewarded for freshness, surprise, though Fey has the much deep acting chops, and of course, had more time to do it in.

    Love Matt Morrison, but don’t think he’ll beat Alec Baldwin and Steve Carrell and David Duchoveny.

    Jane Lynch though would be a great choice to win best supporting actress.

    Great for Glee to get so many noms their first half season out!

  3. Jane Lynch will win. No doubt. Besides the fact she is terrific, Hollywood loves her.

  4. Glee against 30 Rock!! It would be shocking if Glee wins over 30 Rock, and also Lea Michele over Tina Fey.

    Getting nomination from Golden Globes is already enough but I hope that Glee will win at least 1 award. Jane Lynch has a greater chance of winning the best supporting actress, I think.

    On the other hand, I hope Mad Men or True Blood will win Best Drama. Their latest seasons were great.

  5. Yay Glee!

    New shows tend to do well on the Golden Globes (pretty much the opposite of the Emmys), so it probably stands a good chance. I think Jane stands a good chance and perhaps the show itself.

    BTW it received the most nominations of any television show.

  6. Congrats to the cast and crew of Glee!! I hope Jane Lynch wins her category!

  7. Wow….

    I am so out of touch this year. Went to the Golden Globe noms and was just amazed. I haven’t seen a single one of the pictures nominated for anything….and the TV shows are pretty cable-centric (and I find TV pretty much snooze city, right now).

    Personally, I find Glee pretty nauseating. It started with a bang but has trundled down into tripe pretty quickly for me. Though I like Matthew and am pleased that a Broadway Actor is getting some recognition. Since TV shows are based on a single episode and not the show as a whole, I will be interested to research and see which episodes were nominated. Bet they were early on in the series.

  8. Yay, Glee!

    Since TV shows are based on a single episode and not the show as a whole, I will be interested to research and see which episodes were nominated. Bet they were early on in the series.

    I don’t know if the “midseason finale” was nominated or not, but it was the best of the season. The show did get a little sluggish for a few weeks, but it went out with a bang. Check it out on Hulu.

  9. Jane Lynch will win. No doubt. Besides the fact she is terrific, Hollywood loves her.

    And new shows or performers from new shows win over established shows at the Golden Globes. The Hollywood Foreign Press loves a new show.

    I agree–Jane Lynch is a shoe-in.

  10. WooHoo!!

    I’ve always liked the Golden Globes better than the Emmy’s and the Oscar’s beccause they’re laid back and a little more in touch with the general public. The Emmy’s give the same shows and the same actors the same awards year after year until that series ends. Jane is pretty much a lock and I do think Lea and Matthew are contenders but I’m not getting my hopes up. The one that would be sweet for them is the one for the series since it’s really everyone and their little nuances that makes the show work so well.

  11. I love Glee, but I would like to see Modern Family win something. I’m disappointed a couple of their actors aren’t nominate as well.

    However I suspect Glee will win comedy (and I’ll be fine with that). Alec Baldwin will win comedy actor, tight race between Tina Fey and Lea Michele for comedy actress, and Jane is a shoe-in for supporting actress. Matthew is fabulous in his role, but I don’t see the Globes shutting out 30 Rock.

  12. I agree with JJ123 about hoping the show wins, because it’s the whole cast that makes the show really work. That would be so incredible. I also agree that Jane Lynch is basically a shoo-in. I’d love to see Lea & Matt win, too, but that may be less likely. We’ll see. :)

    I’m just glad it got nominations. :) It deserved the GG love, IMO.

  13. New shows tend to do well on the Golden Globes (pretty much the opposite of the Emmys), so it probably stands a good chance. I think Jane stands a good chance and perhaps the show itself.

    ITA – the Golden Globes are NOTORIOUS for picking new shows, and sometimes ones that are more “shocker” picks than necessarily the best quality picks. For instance, I was half expecting True Blood to win best drama last year. Not that I don’t enjoy it, but it’s no where near the level of, say, Mad Men or some of the other contenders.

    Glee, otoh, fits the bill perfectly for a GG win. It has a ton of hype, critics and fans love it, it’s new, etc. I hope it does win, because it’s so refreshing and new. 30 Rock is way more superficial, and has been a little hit or miss lately.

  14. It’s really sad to me that Jeremy Piven keeps getting nominations, and none of the supporting male cast of Mad Men, who are all SO good. John Slattery may be the best actor on television today, and I am a major fan of Hugh Laurie and Jon Hamm and Robert Morse and Steve Carell and a lot of other lovely actors on TV.

  15. smartcookie – I am over all the Piven nominations as well. I like that the GG’s often recognize the fresh talent, because sometimes I just feel that if you’ve played the same character for 5 or more years, well you SHOULD be good at it. Once you’ve been acknowledged, why keep rewarding someone for doing the same damn thing over and over?

    I agree with those of you who’d love to see the show win. It’s the whole ensemble that makes that show great. Of course, I’d love to see Jane win as well. Currently, Sue is my favorite tv character.

  16. Great news, Glee totally deserves to be the TV show with most nominations! Although I don’t understand how on earth Lost’s only has 1 nomination.

    And yay also for U2 being nominated!

    On the other hand, can’t wait to see Avatar and Nine.

  17. I am officially in love with Glee. The only thing that would make me love it more is if they actually land Adam Lambert to be a guest on the show. Lea Michele has made no secret about her love for Adam and how much she wants to sing with him. Glee for the WIN!!

  18. Wow, there must be a really lack of good comedy shows on american TV these days if Glee is nominated.
    I’m sorry, but that show really isn’t that good.
    I enjoyed the first couple episodes in a very guilty pleasure way but grew tired of it soon. The writing is really poor and there are only a couple of characters that save it.

    The noms for Drama series are much stronger imo.

  19. I’m kind of up in the air about watching Glee next year. I thought the show kind of finished with a whimper this year. The penultimate episode was especially weak.

  20. But the last episode of Glee was *awesome*. Both Mad Men and Glee finished up really, really well. The Office had a really good one right before the Christmas break, too. Maybe those are the ones that will stick in the minds of the voters from the foreign press. (What are there, ten of them? Seriously, it’s a very small group, and that’s why they’re kind of unpredictable.)

    But I think the last episode of Mad Men deserves every award available. It was THAT good. Glee and The Office weren’t as good as that, but still really good. Unfortunately, they’re competition for each other.

    The one thing that the GG voters seem to like even better than new stuff is non-American actors, so I do kind of wonder if Janet McTeer will take it over Jane Lynch. It’s hard to even get a nom in that category, since it’s a mix of TV movies and miniseries and things, and people like Miranda Richardson and Vanessa Redgrave — and Janet McTeer — end up in the same category. The last three winners in that category are from TV movies, and two of the three are British (Samantha Morton and Emily Blunt). The last time somebody won for a series comedy was 2002, when Kim Cattrall won for Sex in the City. (Which is kinda icky, all by itself.) Before that, it’s Julia Louis Dreyfus for Seinfeld in 1993. But if anybody can stem the tide of A list actresses in heavy drama taking the category, it’s Jane Lynch.

  21. I think it can definitely be said that a couple of episodes really dragged. However, when Glee is firing on all cylinders, it’s ON. In the first half of the season, IMO there were 5 standout (not just good… GREAT) episodes: the Pilot, Preggers, The Rhodes Not Taken (Cheno FTMFW at the Emmy’s next year!), Wheels, & Sectionals. I’m pretty curious which episodes were submitted for consideration too. I’m betting the submissions come from some kind of combination from some of those 5.

    This has actually been a great year for new shows, comedies included. I came into this TV season saying that I couldn’t add any more new shows except for Glee, & I’ve added at least 4 or 5 more. Speaking of new shows & GG noms, I am SO glad that Julianna Marguilies (sp?) was nominated for “The Good Wife.” That’s a GREAT show, & she is fantastic in it.

  22. Congrads to Glee..
    The minority here but sort of wished for some more nominations for “Friday Night Lights” that is a good cast also..

  23. Globes tend to award new shows more so than the Emmys. Their picks are often non traditional and could be considered a surprise, thus I think its Modern Family or Glee over 30 Rock, no doubt. I think Jane Lynch is a lock for best supporting actress.

    Mad Men, Dexter or True Blood for best drama. All depends on which episode was submitted. The finale of MadMen and Dexter were beyond great…reminded me of Lost’s season 3 finale, when my head exploded. I’ll bet True Blood went w. the episode in where Glodric commits suicide in front of Sookie, on the rooftop. Beautiful and haunting episode. Hmmm, crap, I wouldn’t want to be a voter! Hard decisions.

    And yes, FNL is an extremely under-rated show. I do wish it would receive more love during award season.

  24. I couldn’t agree more with the comments about Mad Men’s last ep. It actually gave me chills. Gawd I love that show.

    Hurray, Glee! Matthew Morrison is a real find. His acting in those heavy-drama scenes in the last two episodes was devastating. I know he doesn’t have a prayer against the steamroller that is Alec Baldwin, but it’s fun to pretend.

    Re: Jane Lynch…yeah. The other ladies nominated in her category can probably just stay home and watch the show in their jammies. Save themselves some money on a fancy dress and all that.

  25. Oh Jane Lynch FTW! She’s amazing. I’d hate to be competing against her in that category.

  26. However, when Glee is firing on all cylinders, it’s ON. In the first half of the season, IMO there were 5 standout (not just good’ ¦ GREAT) episodes: the Pilot, Preggers, The Rhodes Not Taken (Cheno FTMFW at the Emmy’s next year!), Wheels, & Sectionals.

    Yes, I totally agree! Those were the best episodes. I also really liked the ninth episode… forget which one it was.
