30 Rock, Mad Men, In Treatment Lead Globe Nods
Jon Hamm, Tina Fey
Tina Fey's huge year could be capped at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards with her second straight win for best actress in a comedy series. The 30 Rock star and creator received the nomination alongside her costar, Alec Baldwin, who was nominated in the male category.
Fey, whose show earned three Emmys in September, skyrocketed in popularity this year with her portrayal of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. 30 Rock will compete with NBC's The Office, Showtime's Weeds and Californication, and HBO's Entourage for best television comedy.
The nominees for best television drama are AMC's Emmy winner Mad Men, Fox's House, (the only broadcast nominee), Showtime's Dexter and HBO's In Treatment and True Blood.
In Treatment and HBO's Recount earned the most nominations in the TV categories, with five each.
Mad Men's Jon Hamm, who won the Golden Globe this year, and costar January Jones each earned acting nominations in drama.
Hamm is up against In Treatment's Gabriel Byrne, Dexter's Michael C. Hall, House's Hugh Laurie and The Tudors' Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Though it didn't air last season, FOX's 24 still managed a nomination — for its TV movie, 24: Redemption. Star Kiefer Sutherland is up for best actor in a made for television movie.
In movies, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt and Frost/Nixon led the way with five nominations each.
Nabbing a surprise nomination was Tom Cruise, who was singled out not for his role in the upcoming Nazi drama Valkyrie, but for playing an obese movie mogul part in Tropic Thunder. Facing off against him in the supporting actor race will be costar Robert Downey Jr., Doubt's Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ralph Fiennes (The Duchess) and Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight).
