'Damages' is Golden; Kyra to 'Close' in on Two?

By LillyKat / PTR Staff Writer

Patty Hewes would be so proud.

BJ wouldn't be too disappointed, either.

FX Networks (and PTR Fave) Damages lead the television series nominations for the 65th Annual Golden Globe awards, earning nods for Best Television Series (Drama), Best Actress in a TV Drama (Glenn Close), Best Supporting Actress in a TV Drama (Rose Byrne), and Best Supporting Actor in a TV Drama (Ted Danson).

Additionally, PTR Fave Kyra Sedgwick has earned her third Best Actress in a TV Drama nomination for her role as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson on TNT's The Closer. We remember she won last year - can she make it two in a row? It's a packed category this year.

The Globes are scheduled to be broadcast on January 13th on NBC, but the ongoing writers strike could put a significant dent in that plan. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has requested the Writers Guild of America (WGA) grant the award ceremony production a waiver so the Globes could use writers on the show. But if the WGA rejects the request, we may have a less-than-entertaining show to watch - especially if fellow actors and actresses refuse to cross the strike picket line and not attend the show.

Stay tuned.

Great news about Damages! The show and all the actors are so deserving. It's a tough choice between Glenn Close and Kyra Sedgewick. The 2 hour Closer was fabulous last week!
