The nominations for the 2010 Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning, and there were some surprising first-time nominations, especially in the comedy categories. In the category of "Best Television Series- Comedy or Musical", previously nominated series "30 Rock", "The Office" and "Entourage" will be going up against freshman series "Modern Family" and "Glee". Alec Baldwin and Steve Carell are nominated again for best actor in a comedy, against David Duchovny for "Californication", Thomas Jane for "Hung", and Matthew Morrison for "Glee". Tina Fey competes for best actress in a comedy against Toni Collette for "United States of Tara", Courteney Cox for "Cougar Town", Edie Falco for "Nurse Jackie", and Lea Michele for "Glee".
Meanwhile, the nominations for best comedy film are "(500) Days of Summer", "The Hangover", "It's Complicated", "Julie & Julia" and "Nine". No nomination for Zach Galifianakis, unfortunately; he was pushed out of the Best Actor in a Comedy category by Matt Damon ("The Informant"), Daniel Day-Lewis ("Nine") , Robert Downey, Jr. ("Sherlock Holmes"), Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("(500) Days of Summer"), and Michael Stuhlbarg ("A Serious Man").
