Yes, streaming and cable television shows still got the bulk of attention during Monday’s Golden Globes. But broadcast TV wasn’t left out in the cold thanks to two returning Globe favorites, a new breakout drama and an old favorite that shined like it’s new again in 2017.
NBC’s “This Is Us” once again picked up multiple nominations, including one for best drama and individual honors for Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown and Chrissy Metz.
“This Is Us” tied the total number of nominations it received last year during its freshman season, once again scoring a Big Three, if you will.
ABC’s “Black-ish” earned two nominations, down from three last year.
Tracee Ellis Ross, who earned a historic win last year for best actress in a comedy, was shut out of the 2018 nominations.
“The Good Doctor” helped put ABC on the map in the drama race, as Freddie Highmore scored a nomination for lead actor in a drama. On the show, Highmore plays a young surgical resident who has autism and savant syndrome.
Highmore will face off against Brown, Jason Bateman (Netflix’s “Ozark”), Bob Odenkirk (AMC’s “Better Call Saul”), Live Schreiber (Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”) in the lead actor in a drama category.
And for the first time since 2005, “Will & Grace” scored multiple nominations for its ninth season, which premiered this year after being rebooted by NBC.
The series is up for best comedy or musical, and Eric McCormack is up for best actor in a comedy.
McCormack was last nominated in that category in 2004.
“Will & Grace” has never won a Golden Globe.
