Golden Globe statues

For the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, NBC recruited funnyman to host the ceremony for the second year in a row. But will Gervais be the only name making a return appearance at the microphone tonight?

Last year, Michael C. Hall, Alec Baldwin, Julianna Margulies and Toni Collette nabbed acting wins in the Television category. Could we see repeat victories for all four nominees?

At the 2010 event, Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) bested Colin Firth (A Single Man) for Best Actor in a Drama. Will this be the year that Colin Firth (The King's Speech) takes the statue from Bridges (True Grit)?

Follow our live coverage after the jump and get all of the answers to the above questions and more!

2011 Golden Globe Nominations (TV)

Boardwalk Empire

The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.

Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.

Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:

  • The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
  • The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
  • The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

Chris Noth Leaves Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, NBC, News, Renewals,

Chris NothAfter leaving his mark on two different Law & Order franchises, has decided to leave the Dick Wolf family once again.

Noth, who has been playing Det. Mike Logan on for three years, originated the character when the first series unfolded on NBC back in 1990. (He stuck around that time through 1995.)

When the program returns for its 8th season (it’s still in the middle of its seventh), Jurassic Park‘s Jeff Goldblum will be the new face sharing screen time with Vincent D’Onofrio.

In a statement, USA’s executive vice-president of original programming said, “Jeff is one of the most exciting actors around and is a perfect addition to the Law & Order: Criminal Intent ensemble. We are very excited to see what new moves he will bring to the Major Case Squad.” Well, I hope he brings a lot - especially since he’ll reportedly be getting about $250,000 per episode.

There’s been no word as to how or when Noth will be making his exit.

Sex and the City Cast Visits Oprah

Sex and the City cast, Oprah

As FilmCrunch earlier reported, the ladies of Sex and the City will be making several stops to promote their upcoming movie.  Now we know of one more visit on their lengthy itineraries:  Oprah.

Come this Thursday (May 1), all four ladies - Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon - and will be gabbing with the talk show queen.  That date will, of course, kick off a month filled with appearances for the May 30th premiere.

Will Oprah dare question Cattrall and Parker about the rumored discord between them?  Or will the hour be all about shoes and fashion?  Who cares?  It’s not like I won’t be watching anyway.

‘Sex And The City’ Movie Buzz

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, HBO, Gossip, Rumors,

SATCI know that speculation about a Sex And The City movie has been brewing for some time now—but I’ve done my best to ignore all the chatter.  The last time plans were squashed (reportedly thanks to Kim Cattrall’s financial demands), I put all my hopes to rest.  So when the rumors recently started up again, I listened with skepticism.

And while anything could change at the drop of a hat, TVGuide.com is now reporting that production is imminent.  New Line Cinema is apparently in final distribution talks with HBO.  A formal announcement could be made as early as next week with filming to being in mid-September.

I’m ecstatic at the prospect of seeing my beloved ladies once again—but I’m also bit nervous.  Will this show really translate well to the big screen?  (We all know how the film versions of Twin Peaks and The X-Files fared).  Is a made-for-HBO version the better option? 

And what about the storylines?  Are we better off pretending that Carrie and Mr. Big live happily-ever-after?  And then there’s Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.  They were all pretty happy with their respective love lives as well.  If someone has to carry on with the SATC tradition, does that mean that one of these ladies will be off hopping into bed with someone else soon? 

Regardless of how it all ends, I will be there on opening night…cosmopolitan in hand.
