Golden Globe Nominations – TELEVISION: Big Little Lies on top; freshman shows flourish

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association are rather famous for embracing new shows and new television talent and this year is no different. Freshman shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Masiel, 13 Reasons Why and SMILF earned nominations today at the 75th Golden Globes nomination announcement.

Big Little Lies was the big nomination-getter today with six. It competed this year in the Limited Series categories but with its just-announced second season will be moved to Drama Series next year. Multi-Emmy winner The Handmaid’s Tale earned three nominations, all in categories it won at the Emmy Awards in September. Sometimes what’s old is new again, as was the case for Will & Grace whose returned earned them two (more) Golden Globe nominations including Television Series – Comedy.

Curiously missing (or not so curiously) from any category were Transparent and House of Cards, part of the collateral damage from the sexual misconduct allegations against its stars, Jeffrey Tambor and Kevin Spacey, respectively.

Kristen Bell, Garrett Hedlund, Sharon Stone and Alfre Woodard announced the nominations this morning from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, the site of the 75th Golden Globes ceremony. They were joined by Golden Globe ambassador Simone Garcia Johnson, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president, Meher Tatna, and executive vice president of television at Dick Clark Productions Barry Adelman.

The show will air live at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Sunday, January 7, on NBC from the Beverly Hilton with Seth Meyers hosting.
