Few PTR Faves in 'Globes' Noms

By LillyKat
PTR Senior Staff Writer


Well, we can't win 'em all.

Or nominate 'em all.

This year's Golden Globes Nominees are decidedly less PTR-favorish than last year. Our girl Kyra Sedgwick still gets a nod for her fantastic work on The Closer ; and, Michael C. Hall is nominated for his work on Dexter (the show also earns a nod for best drama). Other than that, not a whole lot as it pertains to our PTR Faves.

But hey, no writer's strike to cancel the ceremony this year.

Side note: Extra coolness that Shirley Maclaine is nominated for her role in the mini-series, Coco Chanel. She. Rocked. It.

Second side note: Good to see Debra Messing up for The Starter Wife, too. Have missed her being on television since Will & Grace went off the air.

Winners of the 66th Annual Golden Globes Awards will be announced at the annual red carpet shindig of a ceremony, which will be held at the Beverly Hills Hilton on January 11, 2009 and air at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.

It's good to see Dexter and a few other PTR faves make the lists. Fingers crossed they do well on awards night.

I agree with your shout-out to Shirley MacLaine. She was unbelievable in Coco Chanel on lifetime.

Brothers and sisters is just an excellent show!!! I don't know why TV companies are trying to hide some talented actors just like Flockhart...She is an outstanding actress..and from her first 10 minutes of the show I knew I was going to love this show..with all of its relations and characters.
