a. STEVE BUSCEMI BOARDWALK EMPIRE
b. BRYAN CRANSTON BREAKING BAD
c. KELSEY GRAMMER BOSS
d. JEREMY IRONS THE BORGIAS
e. DAMIAN LEWIS HOMELAND

——————————————————————————————–

Jeremy’s reaction to being nominated:

“I am delighted to be nominated for my work in Neil Jordan’s The Borgias. In truth I know it reflects the tireless efforts and exceptional talents of all those who bring this splendid series to the screen. Without the magnificent work in the costume and set design, script writing, lighting and camera work, and the constant care in the direction , production, and marketing, this series would not have grabbed its audience as it appears to have done. That I am surrounded by a talented and dedicated cast is self-evident. But, of course, if you want to nominate anyone, and escape with your life, then you’d better first nominate the Pope.”

Jeremy Irons, “The Borgias”

Best Actor in a Television Series, Drama

The Globes are today? – Joan Allen reacts to being nominated for a Golden Globe Award – from the Chicago Sun Times:

For veteran Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member Joan Allen, the Globe announcements came as a complete surprise. Nominated for best actress in a TV miniseries or made-for-TV movie for playing the title role in ‘‘Georgia O’Keefe’’ on Lifetime, Allen said, ‘‘I didn’t even know it was going on. I was totally oblivious, until I got an email from my publicist in L.A. saying, ‘Congratulations on your nomination!’

‘‘I had to ask, ‘Nomination for what?’ I wasn’t even sure which award ceremony it was for!’’

When Allen realized it was for the Golden Globes and for ‘‘Georgia O’Keefe,’’ she had several reactions.

‘‘First I was so very pleased Jeremy [Irons, her co-star] was also nominated and was so pleased for my producing partners on this project that we were recognized for something we all believed in so much.

‘‘Now, of course, I have to start worrying about what I’ll wear to the ceremony,’’ added Allen with a big laugh. ‘‘And finally, I must say this is a very nice early Christmas gift to get!’’
