Home Box Office's 26 nods dominated the Golden Globe nominations,
announced in Hollywood's wee hours Thursday morning.
HBO shows The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Sex and the
City and Curb Your Enthusiasm all were showered with nominations,
while HBO's made-for-TV movies and miniseries Path to War, Live from
Baghdad, The Gathering Storm and Hysterical Blindness took the
majority of mentions in those categories.
Among the major broadcast networks, NBC was tops, while CBS' top-rated series
were practically shut out, garnering only one nomination for actress Marg
Helgenberger in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
CBS did claim two more nominations for made-for-TV movie Hell on Heels:
The Battle of Mary Kay for performances by Shirley MacLaine and Parker
NBC shows The West Wing, Friends and Will &
Grace helped the network to 13 nominations -- one-half that of HBO, but still by

ABC got two nods for Jennifer Garner in
Alias and Bonnie Hunt in
Life with Bonnie.

Sopranos and Six Feet Under, FX's The Shield and Fox's
24, while best comedy nominations went to NBC's Friends and
Will & Grace, HBO's Sex and the City and Curb YourEnthusiasm and Fox's The Simpsons.

RFK, Turner Network Television's Door to Door, A&E Network's Shackleton and Sci Fi Channel's
The television industry's top news stories, analysis and blogs of the day.
