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.

William McKinley High was decked out in its holiday best for “A Very Glee Christmas,” but Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) didn’t have a lot to feel cheerful about. Emma (Jayma Mays) is married, and even her invitation to the Christmas party she’s having with her new husband felt like an insult. We discovered near the top of the episode that Brittany (Heather Morris) still believes in Santa Claus. Artie (Kevin McHale) became determined at once to preserve her childlike illusion … at all costs.
This all led into a fantastic scene featuring “The Most Wonderful Day of the Year,” in which all the Glee kids decorated a festive tree … though the ornaments, fake gifts and even the tree were either stolen or found. Will Schuester couldn’t allow them to keep their pilfered holiday items, of course.
New Directions wasn’t feeling a lot of holiday cheer, either … mainly, because the football team learned how to turn slushies green using food coloring. Mr. Schue came up with the abysmally bad idea to take the club around to carol from class to class. It was a debacle, of course, though there was nothing wrong with Mercedes (Amber Riley) and her beautiful rendition of “We Need a Little Christmas.”
But green slushies and stolen Christmas ornaments are nothing compared to the pain that Rachel (Lea Michele) is feeling. Despite her very best efforts, ex-boyfriend Finn (Cory Monteith) continues to shun her … yes, even after hearing her perform “Last Christmas.” When she mournfully performed “Merry Christmas, Darling,” Puckleberry fanatics all over the country became Finchel converts.
UPDATE: It turns out Ed O'Neill was apparently misquoted. You can read the retraction statement here.
“I love Jane, honestly I do. I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character."
-Modern Family star Ed O'Neill on Jane Lynch's Best Supporting Actress win for her role on Glee. (For the record: Ed was the only adult from his ABC show to not receive an Emmy nomination.)

Glee’s latest episode had so much packed into it, our heads are still spinning. Burt Hummel (Mike O’Malley) and Carole Hudson (Romy Rosemont) had a big announcement for Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Finn (Cory Monteith) at the top of the episode: they’re getting married. Who else squealed with delight when Kurt announced, “you’re having a glee wedding!”?
Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) was also thinking of marriage. After exploring the wide world of Internet dating and finding only one match for her interests (extreme taxidermy, tantric yelling, poking the elderly with hidden pins), she began to mail out invitations…for her wedding to herself.
The video above shows Lynch singing “Ohio” with guest star Carol Burnett, who plays Sue’s Nazi-hunting mom. Rumor has it that Burnett suggested the song (which is from “Wonderful Town”) to Ryan Murphy. Sue’s mom is exactly what you’d expect - mean and tough as nails. We can’t wait to see more of her.
Finn’s mom wasn’t the only receiving a proposal. Another couple moved forward in their relationship this week …

- Rules of Engagement (CBS, 8:30 P.M.): "A sheepish Jeff asks coworkers to sponsor Audrey's 10K charity run after he's told them not to include him in office fundraisers." To be clear, he didn't want shell out money for things he'd have to eat.
- Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9 P.M.): "Charlie spends money wildly for his old lover Courtney, who returns after spending three years in prison." Spending money on a woman who can finally relate to him? Priceless.
- Skating with the Stars (ABC, 9:11 P.M.): "The series opener of an ice-skating competition that pairs celebrities with professional skaters. Contestants include Vince Neil, Bethenny Frankel and Sean Young." That is one motley crew.
“You’re going to love it,” Jane Lynch promised reporters who found her at the Gay and Lesbian Center’s 39th Anniversary bash in LA. The Glee actress was talking about the upcoming wedding on the show, but she had little more to say than that.
“It is just so freakin’ weird,” she admitted, but said she wouldn’t reveal “who or what or even what sex” when it comes to the marriage itself.
But there is one spoiler we’re allow to deliver - Ali Rahimi designed a special wedding dress for Lynch’s character Sue Sylvester. It is, just as we would hope, a “designer track suit wedding dress.”

Rumors are running rampant that Bruce Springsteen will be the next big musical star to do a guest stint on the series, and we’re hoping that they’re true. If anyone can stand up to Glee’s larger-than-life cheerleading coach (Jane Lynch), it’s The Boss.
Glee could be doing a full-blown tribute to Springsteen, which may include a cameo from the performer himself.
“I’m a big fan!” Jane Lynch said of the musician. “I hear rumors that we may do a Bruce Springsteen episode and I think something like that would be amazing.”
We’re hearing that Bruce will play the uncle of one Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith), which would be absolutely boss!
