The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning in Los Angeles. HBO received the most nominations of any network, 22 to be exact. The shows that received noms were In Treatment, Recount, John Adams, Bernard and Doris, Entourage and True Blood. Below is a snippet from the official HBO press release.
HBO received 22 Golden Globe nominations, the most of any television network this year, for the upcoming 66th annual Golden Globe Awards, which were announced today in Los Angeles. In Treatment and Recount led all HBO programming and tied for the lead among all TV programming with 5 nominations apiece. The Golden Globe Awards will be presented Jan. 11 in Los Angeles.
Winter Is Coming: So what does this mean for Game of Thrones? Possibly nothing. But it is good to see that HBO continues to lead the way in terms of quality television programming. Premium networks such as HBO need awards and recognition, more so than broadcast and cable nets, as it helps build buzz which in turn adds subscribers. Especially encouraging is to see True Blood garnering some critical acclaim. A genre project based on a book series? That sounds familiar.
