63rd Golden Globe Nominations 

On our way to see Brokeback Mountain last night, The Girl asked me when the Golden Globes are, and who some of the nominees are. I was stunned - doesn't she read my blog? Well, on reviewing it this morning, I see that while I read the announcements, I never posted on them. What's wrong with me? What was I thinking?

So here it is. The Golden Globe nominees were announced on December 13, and the awards will be announced and presented on January 16, 2006 at 8 pm EST. You can watch them on NBC. And some of the nominees are (click here to see the full list).

On the tv front, let's just say it's a VERY good year for Desperate Housewives, with a nomination for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy, and the four leads taking up four of the five nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy. The fifth slot is held by Mary Louise Parker for Weeds (I love both shows). Felicity Huffman could potentially grab a tv Best Actress as well as a film Best Actress, with her nominations for both Desperate Housewives AND Transamerica!
