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.
