‘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.

Complete lists of nominees and AFI’s top 10 shows of 2009 list are below:

Big Love (HBO)
Dexter (Showtime)
House (FOX)
Mad Men (AMC)
True Blood (HBO)

30 Rock (NBC)

The Office (NBC)

Glenn Close, Damages

Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Anna Paquin, True Blood
Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Hugh Laurie, House
Bill Paxton, Big Love

Toni Collette, United States of Tara
Courteney Cox, Cougar Town
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
