‘The Newsroom,’ ‘Game Change’ Lock Up Golden Globe Nominations

The reviews for HBO’s cable news drama “The Newsroom” may not have been glowing, but they apparently didn’t matter. The program was quickly renewed for a second season by HBO and now it has picked up two Golden Globe nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

“The Newsroom” is nominated for “Best Television Series-Drama,” while star Jeff Daniels is nominated for his performance as cantankerous cable news anchor Will McAvoy.

Elsewhere, the HBO movie “Game Change” picked up five nominations, including “Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made For Television” and a nomination for Julianne Moore‘s portrayal of Fox News contributor and former VP nominee Sarah Palin. Woody Harrelson, Sarah Paulson and Ed Harris also received nominations for their roles.

HBO has already optioned the follow-up to Game Change as a movie, The book will be released late next year.
