Overall, the Golden Globe nominations proved kind to made-in-Baltimore productions.
HBO's political drama "Game Change" -- the story of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's 2008 vice-presidential run -- earned the most TV nominations with five: best TV movie or mini-series; best actress in a TV movie or mini-series (Julianne Moore); best actor in a TV movie or mini-series (Woody Harrelson); best supporting actress in a TV movie, series or mini-series (Sarah Paulson); and best supporting actor in a TV movie, series or mini-series (Ed Harris). Much of "Game Change" was filmed in and around Baltimore in 2011.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus seems to be back in the awards season's good graces -- and as of last week, she was back in Baltimore to resume filming the second season of HBO's "Veep." Louis-Dreyfus was nominated in the best actress in a TV series (comedy or musical) category for her work on "Veep." The nomination comes just a day after she -- and the show -- were shut out in the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations.
Louis-Dreyfus won the Emmy as best comedy actress for her work on "VEEP" last year.
The Golden Globe nominations, however, continued a rough streak for Baltimore-born Julie Bowen, the two-time Emmy-winning actress of ABC's "Modern Family." Just as she was passed over for the SAG awards, her name was missing from the Golden Globe nominations.
The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards will air Jan. 13 on NBC.
