1. Congratz to Steve but I’m shocked at the lack of other nominations–most notably no Best Comedy!

    Californication? Seriously?

  2. But how did The Office only get one nom? WHAT?!? Pushing Daisies will be hard to beat this year. That show is really starting to explode in popularity.

  3. i’m also surprised that the office didnt get a nomination for best comedy series this year.

  4. No Jenna or Rain noms? :(

    And I LOOOVE Steve, but I’d almost be just as happy if Lee Pace won in that category.

  5. Congrats to Steve.

    I don’t blame the good people at the Golden Globes for not nominating the show for Best Comedy. Lately, the quality hasn’t been as good as in years past.

  6. Congratulations to Steve! But I am sad that The Office didn’t get a nom for Best Comedy. Boo.

  7. Congrats to Steve!!

    Yeah… it’s great and all, but I feel really shocked that The Office only got ONE nom….. what the heck is that about!?!

  8. Yay Steve! I wish John would get nominated though. He’s so overlooked. Maybe he’ll find something in Leatherheads.

  9. There is no supporting actor/actress in a comedy series with the Golden Globes – and since there is no Lead Actress, Steve was the only chance to really get an acting nomination.

    I’m very surprised about the lack of The Office and Weeds for comedy series though. Very surprised.

  10. To be honest, as much as I love The Office and Steve, I’m sorta rooting for “Pushing Daisies” this time around.

    I just don’t think the writing on The Office has been as strong as in the past.

    Best of luck to Steve though!

  11. I’m so happy for Steve, but it feels like this TV season is turning into one big burn for The Office.

  12. On the Today Show, somebody said that the Golden Globes folks favor new TV shows over older ones. The Office isn’t really new anymore, I guess. Although, I agree that it is certainly deserving of a nomination at the very least.

  13. Yeah Steve! *air five* but…no Office comedy nom!? And they have 3 writing noms from the WGA?

    What in the sam-hill is this!? I’ve got such a problem with the way the GG goes to all the trouble of sorting out dramatic and comedic films and yet they cram all of the supporting performer nominations into one category, one TV and one film. If they aren’t going against each other in other categories why are they in another? What sense does that make? I think Rainn and Jenna got robbed of noms.

  14. It’s great that Steve got a nomination. I’m really happy for him. I wish other actors were nominated too. I believe both Jenna and John did such an amazing job.

  15. The show was robbed. Oh well, it’s not a good year to be nominated anyway, because a lot of actors, writers, etc. aren’t going because of the strike.

  16. I can’t believe he was the ONLY ONE who got a nomination. I think Jenna and John were especially robbed, not to mention THE SHOW! Award shows make me mad. But congrats to Steve anyway! He should have been nominated for Dan in Real Life too.

  17. What?! Califonication over The Office? (And over Weeds?!) I’m fine when The Office isn’t nominated for awards as long as there are deserving shows that get it’s spot. I’m fine with 30 Rock, Entourage, Extras and Pushing Daisies, but Californication is just sad!

    And just so you guys know the golden globes only has a category for leading actors and actresses. That means Jenna, and John and Rainn weren’t really included. There’s not a category for them. Supporting actors never get nominated so they didn’t have a shot. But I agree, Rainn is better than half the other nominees!

    The only two categories the Office was eligible was Best Comedy series and Best Actor in a Comedy series.

  18. The Office has reached a point where it doesn’t need these nominations or awards anymore. It’s big and popular already. As much as I love the Office, I too, feel that it hasn’t been up to par lately. When it goes back to the standards they’ve set for themselves, I think they will get the recognition they deserve. Also, the GG don’t really recognize supporting actors the right way. It’s always the lead actors. And of course, everyone expected Steve Carell and Alec Baldwin to be the frontrunners. I mean, how can you have The Office or 30 Rock without those two?

  19. I can’t wait to hear what all the winners will be saying about the AMPTP during their acceptance speeches. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of “get-off-the-stage music” playing when people get on their soapbox about the strike.

  20. Steve,

    Congrats on your nomination. I know you worked very hard for it (Thats what she said).

    Good luck,


  21. Matt #2 – totally agree re: The Office and Weeds not being nominated and think Urkel Grue has a good point – seems like a lot of nods for newer shows. On the other hand, if they put The Office on HBO and swore more often, they also might have better luck.

    P.S. If you scroll down the noms list, they do have supporting categories (Jaime Pressley is nominated for Earl, for example). Probably they just don’t give those out on the broadcast. Rainn got robbed in my opinion. He’s the funniest thing on television.

  22. Though Michael Scott’s antics can be painful to watch at times, Steve is just brilliant beyond words! I have a difficult time thinking of any other actors as talented (and seemingly decent and humble) as Steve Carell. I am more and more impressed by him all the time.

    Best of luck, Steve!

  23. I was awake when the nominees were announced, and I was so happy for him! Also for Ricky Gervais.
    I was a little disappointed that The Office wasn’t nominated, but at least our fierceless leader will be up there

  24. re 28

    Actually, there is a category for supporting roles, but it is pretty much for ALL supporting roles… Here’s the list, and what is up with all the love for Entourage? I thought that this last season was pretty bad (the Medellin story arch was a disaster in my opinion), especially considering the previous two seasons

    Supporting Actress, Series, Miniseries or Movie: Rose Byrne, “Damages”; Rachel Griffiths, “Brothers & Sisters”; Katherine Heigl, “Grey’s Anatomy”; Samantha Morton, “Longford”; Anna Paquin, “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”; Jaime Pressly, “My Name Is Earl.”

    Supporting Actor, Series, Miniseries or Movie: Ted Danson, “Damages”; Kevin Dillon, “Entourage”; Jeremy Piven, “Entourage”; Andy Serkis, “Longford”; William Shatner, “Boston Legal”; Donald Sutherland, “Dirty Sexy Money.”

  25. Not only did The Office get shafted, but Weeds did, too?

    Entourage? Please.

    And let’s not even get started with those movie nominations…

  26. I just re-read my last post, and I’m so sorry for not saying what I meant to exactly. I meant that comedy didn’t have it’s own categories for actors/actresses, not that there wasn’t one.

    I guess I shouldn’t have said supporting actors/actresses (comedy) never get nominated. I was exaggerating. I just meant the trend is that dramas usually win out. (Just like how the Oscars never award a comedy w/ best picture or best actor/actress.) I’m sure they don’t even review all the supporting actresses in comedies. They just gave Jeremy and Jamie a nod because of the Emmys.

    And to clarify, when I said Rainn is better than half of them, I was talking about the supporting nominees. I know he’s not really on par with Steve Carell or Alec Baldwin or Ricky Gervais. Though he’s better than David Duchovny…

  27. I’m really happy for Steve! He deserved the nom. I’m not surprised that The Office was snubbed, though. The 4th season has been terrible.

  28. I’m very happy for Steve but I’m going to have to agree with some others that the past season and this season haven’t been excellent. I’m actually very happy that Californication has some nominations though, it’s one of my favorite new shows for sure!

  29. I’ve really enjoyed the 4th season. Money may be the best episode yet. I loved going to Dwight’s beet farm, and Michael “declaring” bankruptcy… too funny! In my opinion the third season, although still funnier than anything else on tv, was the worst. I’m so happy that Steve has been nominated. His best work was probably at the end of Survivor Man when he was talking to Jim. I love that Steve can make Michael cringe inducing one moment, and then have you wanting to hug him the next. Congratulations Steve
