HBO leads the nomination pack at Golden Globe

MUMBAI: An HBO presentation, the six-hour mini-series Angels in America, the Mike Nichols adaptation of Tony Kushner's play about AIDS during the Reagan administration, walked off with seven Golden Globe nominations including one for Al Pacino's performance as Roy Cohn.

A record in itself since, last a television project grabbed seven nominations in 1997 for NBC's ER.

This year's spotlight is on lesser-known shows like FX's new plastic-surgery series Nip/Tuck, nominated for best drama series, BBC America's mock documentary about an inept office manager- The Office, has nominations for best comedy, creator and star Ricky Gervais, say media reports. 

Besides, Angels in America, pay-cable channel HBO dominated the proceedings, with nominations for best drama and best comedy series for Six Feet Under (currently aired on Zee English) andSex and the City (on HBO). Sex and the City also shared the spotlight with Will &Grace as the most celebrated regular TV series in this year's Globe contest with five nominations each.

After HBO, its NBC emerged as the most nominated broadcast network, which has collected a total of 10 nominations, including a best drama nomination for The West Wing and a best comedy nod for Will & Grace. Both are currently on Zee English, say the reports.

While showtime's controversial TV movie, The Reagans, earned acting nominations for its two stars -- James Brolin and Judy Davis as former first couple Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

All the four members of the main cast in Will & Grace Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes, have been nominated for the Globes this year. Ditto for Sex and the City, which garnered nominations for its four principals actors Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon, add the report
