The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.
Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.
Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:
- The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
- The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
- The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
- Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

“It’s how it should be - hunter, prey. Let the game begin.”
At some point during every season of Dexter, we all ask ourselves the same question: “How the hell is he going to get out of this one?”
It’s time to hit replay.
When the Showtime series returns on September 26, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) will have to add “single father” and “grieving husband who shows know emotions” to his list of responsibilities. How is he going to juggle it all and keep Quinn (Desmond Harrington) off his track? And how the heck does Julia Stiles figure into all of this?? I’m dying to know.

The road to the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards officially kicked off early this morning. Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara (who received a nod) and Community‘s Joel McHale (who didn’t) were the ones who had the honor of reading this year’s list of nominees.
Although Mad Men - with 17 nominations - once again topped off all dramas, 30 Rock didnot
lead the comedies. Glee did. The freshman FOX series raked in a total of 19 noms, only a handful short of the overall leader. (HBO’s miniseries, The Pacific, received 24 mentions.) 30 Rock did receive 15 nominations, though, while Modern Family followed closely behind with 14.
The August 29 ceremony - which NBC will air live on both the East and West coasts - will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon. You can see a partial list of nominees after the jump.

-Could The Office survive without Steve Carell? The comedian recently told the BBC that the upcoming season will “probably be” his last year.
-Dexter fans can breathe a sigh of relief. A “fully recovered” Michael C. Hall is expected to return to work this summer after battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
-HBO has new date for you to mark on your calendar. Entourage and Hung will both premiere on June 27, two weeks after True Blood‘s debut.
-Could Matt LeBlanc use some Friends? Both Thomas Haden Church and Claire Forlani have dropped out of Episodes, LeBlanc’s new Showtime comedy. Church blames scheduling conflicts; Forlani’s reason is unknown.
-Love is in the air on CNN. Anchors John Roberts and Kyra Phillips were recently engaged. Roberts proposed last weekend during a game of golf.
Tonight’s 67th Annual Golden Globes presentation - hosted by comedian Ricky Gervais - had a nice mix of first-time wins, heartfelt speeches, fashionable entrances and non-stop humor.

Squeezed in between the Golden Globes broadcast and the Oscar nominations is an awards ceremony voted on solely by the actors. (So unlike the People’s Choice Awards, this actually has meaning.)
For the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, we’ll see a lot of the old and just a little bit of the new. Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from this year’s list of television nominees:
- The Closer, Dexter and 30 Rock lead this year’s pack with three nominations each.
- Despite no individual mentions, freshman comedies Modern Family and Glee were both honored in the Best Ensemble category.
- Samantha Who‘s Christina Applegate received a nomination despite starring in a canceled show.
- True Blood received its first nom—but just for its cast, not for any single actor.
The SAG Awards will air Saturday, Jan. 23 on both TNT and TBS.
