Science fiction films “Gravity” and “Her” had reason to be happy today when the Gold Globe nominations were announced.

“Gravity” was nominated in four categories for Best Motion Picture -DRAMA, Best Director (Alfonso Cuaron), Best Actress – DRAMA (Sandra Bullock) and Best Score for a Motion Picture.  While “Her” received three nods, Best Motion Picture – COMEDY OR MUSICAL, Best Actor – COMEDY OR MUSICAL (Joaquin Phoenix), and Best Screenplay.

However, genre television did not fare as well.  No genre shows were nominated in any of the major categories.  “American Horror Story” received two nominations for Best Television Movie or Miniseries, and Best Actress in a Television Movie or Miniseries.
