Genre TV Makes an Impact at GOLDEN GLOBES!
When it comes to awards, genre material rarely makes much of an impact. But this year the Golden Globes has let a tiny bat squeak of recognition sound in the television nominations.
Our favorite show of the year, “Game of Thrones” landed two nominations one for Best Television Series Drama and one for Peter Dinklage in tBest Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television category. While the wonderful “American Horror Story” had similar results, also landing a nod int the Best Television Series Drama category and scoring a nomination for Jessica Lange in Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television category.
Genre material scored less well in the movie categories. Hugo got a nod in the best drama and best director categories. And Midnight in Paris landed nods in the best comedy or musical, director and screenwriting categories. The nominations for animated features included, The Adventures of Tintin, Arthur Christmas, Cars 2, Puss in Boots, and Rango.
