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.
