Eva Longoria probably isn't feeling too Desperate this morning. The perpetual award-show bridesmaid scored a long-overdue Golden Globe nod on Tuesday morning, joining cast mates

Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross in the lead actress (comedy) race. Still, Eva's probably not the happiest of the Housewives today. That award goes to Huffman, doubly nominated for the sudser and her gender-bending turn in Transamerica. Housewives itself overcame all that sophomore-slump chatter to score a nod for best comedy, where it will face off against newcomers Everybody Hates Chris, My Name Is Earl and Weeds, as well as HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage. Other newcomers to the Globes race include Fox's Prison Break and its star, Wentworth Miller; The Office's Steve Carell; Lost's Matthew Fox; and ABC's Grey's Anatomy, which scored nods for best drama, best actor (Patrick Dempsey) and best supporting actress (Sandra Oh). Competing with Grey's and Prison Break in the best-drama slot are Commander in Chief, Lost and Rome. On the film side, Ang Lee's gay weeper Brokeback Mountain solidified itself as an Oscar frontrunner by corralling a field-best seven nominations, including best picture (drama), best actor (Heath Ledger) and best supporting actress (Michelle Williams). Other best drama nominees include The Constant Gardener; Good Night, and Good Luck; A History of Violence; and Woody Allen's Match Point. The musical or comedy nominees are Mrs. Henderson Presents, Pride & Prejudice, The Producers, The Squid and the Whale and Walk the Line. The Globes will be doled out Jan. 16 on NBC; click here for a complete list of nominations.
