Aw man, he already never returns my phone calls, now he's going to be IMPOSSIBLE to catch up with. :rolleyes:

 

Seriously though, it's a well-deserved nomination, and hopefully will translate to a well-deserved win. I posted the nominees today at Bigfanboy.com and was super-stoked when I read TJ's name in there. In fact HUNG got a couple of nominations. Glad folks are taking notice. Congrats Tommy Boy!

Okay, now I am torn! I'm soooo bummed that Patricia didn't get a nomination for Medium, and I'm sad that Hung wasn't nominated for Best Comedy Series, but I'm thrilled for Thomas and Jane Adams for their recognition.

 

Oh, well, I'm sure Patricia is happier to see Thomas get a nomination than she is to get one for herself. Congrats again, TJ!

I'm quite the novice when it comes to acting, but it seems to me that Tom does a much finer job of playing a real character and really acting compared to his competition with the exception of Glee only because I have never seen it. The other guys seem like they are just trying to be funny.

I found a couple TV sites that mentioned Tom should get a nod before the officical list came out:

 

"Eastbound and Down and Hung

HBO is also a big favorite, and while it's doubtful that these shows will earn multiple nominations, Danny McBride and Thomas Jane could both get into the Lead Actor race."

and

 

"I also wouldn't be shocked if Thomas Jane picked up a nomination for his work

on "Hung."

Here's an article with Thomas' reactions to the nomination.

 

How did you get the good news?

"My kid is in first grade, so I get up with her at 7:30 to take her to school. Right when we woke up, the phone rang, and it was my wife [Patricia Arquette] who was on the set of Medium. She doesn't usually call in the morning, so I got on the phone and she was all bubbly, saying 'Congratulations. Oh my God. I can't believe it.' I said, 'Congratulations—for what?' She told me,'You've been nominated for a Golden Globe.' Then I told my daughter, and she started doing a funky little dance around the kitchen. And then I realized I forgot to ask what category I was in. So I called my agents at CAA and they told me I was nominated for best haircut in a TV show

 

 

 

There's lots more in the article.

I was very unhappy about most of the nominations. Then, I read Tom's name, which made me feel so much better.

 

Congrats Tom! I hope you win! You deserve it. Get your speech ready!!! :)

Congratulations from over here in the UK. Very best of luck !!!

 

thanks guys! well the GG are coming up and i personally can't wait! till they're over, that is. what a lot of hooey! all this 'gifting suites' and stuff that generally just takes up a lot of time when i could be playing with my new PLEO. anybody got one of those? we got one for the X mas and i gotta tell ya - i love it. robots AND dinosaurs, i mean come on. only downside is the battery, which doesn't last for dick.

but boy, for those 15 - 20 minutes it's just a party rolled up in a little green rubber ball.

Ha! What a scream. The pomp and ceremony must be a little trying to be sure.

But the Nom is legit. Great company in the category.

If you take the prize I'm going to shit my britchez. Naturally I'll save them for you, posterity you know, 'ol chap!

 

PLEO? So you're saying that the battery is about as dependable as a first generation iPod?

I gotta see this crazy contraption when we hook next week.

Don't forget to charge the fucker up!

 

I'll bring my ROM: Spaceknight, and my Danny Dinosaur and the kids can play ;)

May not be your thing, TJ, but you deserve it, so enjoy it. Live it up and enjoy the moment. You've earned it.
