Nothing very interesting there, though there’s plenty to get you annoyed if you take these nominations seriously (nominations for Dexter, Entourage and Anna Paquin, nothing for Jim Parsons).
I find it mildly odd that Curb Your Enthusiasm, which actually won a Golden Globe for best comedy, was left out, since you’d have thought that the strong season combined with the mega-popular Seinfeld reunion gimmick would have guaranteed it a nomination. But, again, this is maybe taking these awards more seriously than they deserve; the TV division of the Golden Globes is like an afterthought of an afterthought, and they seem largely based on which nominees will look best at the awards show.
