‘Glee,’ ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Dexter’ Big Golden Globes TV Winners

Last night’s big TV winners at the Golden Globes: Glee, Mad Men, Julianna Margulies, Toni Collette, John Lithgow, Alec Baldwin, Chloe Sevigny and Michael C. Hall. The Dexter star, who announced just a few days before the Globes that he was being treated for cancer, also gets my vote for best speech of the night … short, sweet and sincere.

And here’s my rundown at Moviefone.com of the rest of the best and worst moments from the show.

The Ricky Gervais-hosted kudosfest, by the way, was up 14 percent vs. the ratings from last year’s show … was it the anticipation of Gervais hosting, or maybe viewers seeking some glitz and glamour diversion from the heartbreaking news coming out of Haiti all week?

Probably a bit of both, but what did you think of Gervais as host? I thought he was his usual silly, snarky, fun self, and that he probably did the best job anyone could have done with an event that seemed destined to be lower-key than in years past.

‘Glee’ & HBO Lead Golden Globe Nominations; ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Shockingly Snubbed

How cool and well deserved: Freshman musical dramedy Glee leads the pack of TV nominees for the Jan. 17 Golden Globe awards. HBO leads all networks with 17 nominations, while Fox’s Glee leads all shows with four nominations: Best Actor, TV Comedy or Musical for Matthew Morrison, Best Actress, TV Comedy or Musical for Michele Lea, Best Supporting Actress, TV Comedy or Musical for Jane Lynch and Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical for the series.

In other awards news, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Modern Family and The Office lead the Writers Guild of America awards nominees with three each, while Glee and Starz’ Party Down (both of which star the wonderful Jane Lynch) are among the American Film Institute’s top 10 shows of 2009.

One huge quibble with all the awards: No Sons of Anarchy nominations?! Seriously? Not even a Golden Globe nod for Katey Sagal as Best Actress, while the incredibly wooden January Jones does get one? That is one of the biggest oversights in years.

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter (who was also inexplicably overlooked for his SoA writing) actually penned a great post on his Sutter Ink blog last fall about why shows like his are overlooked during awards season. It’s a good read, especially in light of this week’s Sons snubs. But the lack of Sagal nomination, most of all, still breaks my TV-lovin’ heart.
