"Made in NY" TV Series and Films Earn Fifteen Golden Globe Award Nominations

December 14, 2010 - Several “Made in NY” television series and films have received more than a dozen Golden Globe Award nominations. These are productions that are based in New York City and shoot on location throughout the five boroughs.

“New York City, the world’s greatest backdrop, continues to grow as a stage for some of the world’s best film and television," said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. “Congratulations to the producers, actors, actresses and crew of the ‘Made in NY’ productions nominated for Golden Globe awards this year. Their success highlights New York City’s thriving film and television industry. We’ve made substantial investments to grow film and television jobs, and those investments continue to pay off and help us diversify New York City’s economy. Today, more than 100,000 New Yorkers make their living working behind the scenes in the entertainment industry, which now pumps $5 billion into the City’s economy each year. When it comes to film and television production, given New York City’s unparalleled setting and customer service, we have to ask: If you can make it here, why make it anywhere (else)?”

HBO’s new hit series “Boardwalk Empire” earned nominations for Best TV Series (Drama) while its stars, Steve Buscemi and Kelly Macdonald, were nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series (Drama) and Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-series or TV Movie, respectively. The series will begin filming its second season in the coming year.

“The Good Wife,” now in its second season, was nominated for Best TV Series (Drama). The series’ on-screen couple, Julianna Margulies and Chris Noth, both received nominations as well, Margulies for Best Actress in a TV Series (Drama) and Noth for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-series, or TV movie. Last year, Margulies took home the prize in her category. “The Good Wife” airs on CBS on Tuesdays at 10pm EST.

Edie Falco received a nomination for her performance in the Showtime series “Nurse Jackie” while the series itself was nominated for Best TV Series (Comedy). The show is scheduled to return for its third season in 2011.

NBC’s “30 Rock” earned three nominations, including one for Best TV Series (Comedy). Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin were also nominated for their lead roles. “30 Rock” moves to a new time, 10pm on Thursdays, beginning January 20.

The HBO original television movie “You Don’t Know Jack” was nominated for Best TV Movie/Mini-Series. Al Pacino also received a nomination for Best Actor in a Mini-series/TV Movie for his portrayal of Jack Kevorkian.

In film, actor Michael Douglas earned a nomination for his supporting role in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps while Nicole Kidman was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama) for Rabbit Hole.

The 69th annual Golden Globe Awards will be handed out on Sunday, January 16, 2011. The ceremony will be telecast live on NBC at 8pm EST. The awards, which recognize outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television, are chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
