Critics Score Golden Globe Tv Nods

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which has often raised eyebrows with its selection of movie nominees for its Golden Globes awards, did the same thing -- in spades -- with its selection of TV nominees Thursday. The website Hollywood Today, run by veteran entertainment writer Alex Ben Block, noted that "the big surprise was that [the 18 nods garnered by HBO] didn't include a single nomination for the final season of the hit mob drama The Sopranos." And while ABC counted the most nominations among the broadcast networks, the hits Desperate Housewives and Lost were completely shut out. Matt Roush in TV Guide observed that "any institution that so completely ignores NBC's wonderful Friday Night Lights deserves some spirited jeering."
