Freshman series dominated Thursday's Golden Globe nominations, as Nashville, The Newsroom, Smash, Veep and Girls all scored nods, while former three-time drama series champ Mad Men was unceremoniously dropped.
Jon Hamm did get a nod in drama lead actor against Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) and Damian Lewis (Homeland), matching the Screen Actors Guild Awards lineup from Wednesday.
Claire Danes (Homeland) will try to defend her drama lead actress win against Connie Britton (Nashville), Glenn Close (Damages), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) and Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife).
Britton's Nashville co-star Hayden Panettiere also snagged a nod for supporting actress, where she's up against Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), Sarah Paulson (Game Change), Maggie Smith, (Downton Abbey) and Sofia Vergara (Modern Family).
Globes hosts Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) both earned comedy/musical lead actress nods. Their competition includes Zooey Deschanel (New Girl), Lena Dunham (Girls) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep).
The 70th Golden Globe Awards will be held on Sunday, Jan. 13th.
