Golden Globes: Rookie Series Make Presence Felt With 14 Nominations

The 71th Annual Golden Globe Awards announced nominations Thursday morning, and the field is led by rookie shows, which garnered 14 total nominations.

Both best TV series categories featured at least one freshman show, with Showtime's Masters of Sex and Netflix's House of Cards getting best drama nods (Michael Sheen and Kevin Spacey grabbed a best actor nod as well) and Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine joining the best comedy/musical competition. Brooklyn's Andy Samberg got a best actor nod as well.

As usual, HBO was the most recognized network, though with less nods than in previous years with nine, as Starz (as a record), Netflix and Showtime were right behind with six nominations each.

HBO's Behind the Candelabra and Netflix's House of Cards tied for the most-nominated program with 4 nods apiece. AMC's Breaking Bad, CBS's The Good Wife and a pair of Starz miniseries White Queen and Dancing on the Edge all drew three nominations.

The Golden Globes, hosted again by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014 live on NBC.
