2014's fall TV line-up delivered some seriously stunning performances, not to mention a few truly incredible new shows -- but the only problem? There was such an abundance of critically acclaimed television that our DVRs could barely keep up. If you missed out on more quality viewing than is healthy, don't sweat it. Moviefone's rounded up a list of hits that you may have missed in 2014 (too busy binging "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix, probably), which means you officially have a plan for winter break!
If the multiple Golden Globe nominations aren't enough to inspire you to watch "The Affair," you might be interested to know that it stars none other than Joshua Jackson, aka Pacey from "Dawson's Creek." "The Affair" -- which follows the romantic dalliances of a married man and woman in Montauk -- is one part mysterious and one million parts evocative, but the show is »

From the apparent death of the romantic sitcom to the resurgence of superhero shows, there have been a lot of developments in television over the year. But if there is one trend that has defined 2014 in television, it has been the migration of directors to the small screen for season-long projects. While not an idea that’s unique to the year, as the Jane Campion-helmed first season of Top of the Lake signalled the trend in 2013, this year’s television firmly established the migration as something more than a novelty.
Of course, big name directors hopping in for an episode or two of shows they are executive producers on is nothing new. Martin Scorsese’s direction in the pilot no doubt convinced some people to give Boardwalk Empire a chance, as did Neil Marshall’s work on the pilot of Constantine »

It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

The third season of HBO’s Girls is very much one of renewal and reinvention. Characters who find themselves at highs or in happy situations at the end of the previous season are quickly brought low, while others are finally free to soar as the season goes on. Coming off of the high of season two’s over-the-top (but nonetheless touching) finale, season three has the thankless job of bringing everyone back to reality. Charlie and Marnie are broken up, Ray and Shoshanna are broken up, and Hannah and Adam are seeing that their reconcilliation may be more short-lived than they imagined. Meanwhile, Jessa has finally reached the bottom of the barrel and is no longer free to live her indulgent and presumptuous lifestyle.
Life has a way of complicating things and so do the people in our lives, and further still, so do we, ourselves. What has always »

Our writers and editors love great TV, so we had no shortage of opinions when the Golden Globes announced their nominations in 11 categories on Thursday morning. The Hollywood Foreign Press is notoriously fickle -- jumping on the bandwagon for new shows, snubbing old favorites and recent winners -- so here's what we thought of their latest choices. -Break- Shocking Golden Globe (TV) snubs: Benedict Cumberbatch, Amy Poehler, Julia Roberts ... Good I thought these would happen but still very glad to see Clive Owen, Viola Davis, Matt Bomer, and Colin Hanks make the cut. Allison Tolman was a great surprise, especially as a lead for "Fargo." - Chris Beachum It's always great to see new programs get singled out and both "Silicon Valley" and "Transparent" are especially deserving of their nominations, not to mention Jeffrey Tambor getting nominated for Best Musical/Comedy Actor. - Charles Bright "Silicon Valley," &q »

On the TV front, there was no love for popular shows like The Walking Dead, Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory, but newcomers Jane the Virgin, Transparent and The Affair all managed to secure nods.

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

The Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominees for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards earlier this morning. The awards honor the work that has been done in film and television, and the winners will be announced January 11th, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
One of my favorite films of the year, Birdman, leads the pack with seven nominations in the film categories. Then one of my favorite series, Fargo, leads the TV nominations with five. There were a ton of great films and TV shows this last year, and it's good to see many of my favorites being honored for their greatness.

Birdman soars over the competition at 2015 Golden Globe nominations
What the Golden Globes 2015 nominations say about TV right nowThe full list of nominationsGolden Globes 2015: a lively list to kick off the awards season
Right. We’ll wrap things up there. Things to take away from today’s nominations:
Peter Bradshaw has file his thoughts on the Globes. Here’s a snippet:
It’s the Globes! Hardly any institution has benefitted more from the rise of the awards-season and the predominance of celebrity culture. Once mocked for being the rackety and faintly preposterous creation of Hollywood’s grandly-titled Foreign Press Association, the Globes is now not just a curtain-raiser for the Oscars, but an event which visibly luxuriates in being »

The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.
The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

Showtime's "The Affair" and Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black" were among several TV shows receiving three nods as nominations for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced on Thursday (December 11) morning. Also receiving three nominations on the series side were CBS' "The Good Wife" and Netflix's "House of Cards," though all of the shows competing for series crowns are behind FX's "Fargo" and HBO's "True Detective," which earned five and four nominations respectively and are heading for an epic showdown in the Movie/Miniseries field. On the Best Television Series - Drama side, "The Affair" will be going up against "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "The Good Wife" and "House of Cards," with "Game of Thrones" the only one from this group not to earn a single individual nomination. "The Affair" star Dominic West is up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama against fellow Showtimer Liev Schreiber of "Ray Donovan, »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.
There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »

For every delightful surprise of Thursday morning’s 2015 Golden Globe nominations, there was a painful counterpunch — the shard of glass in the Caesar salad, so to speak.
So, while we’re certainly stoked about some fresh blood in the list of TV contenders — Gina Rodriguez! Clive Owen! Transparent! — there are still some omissions that left us shaking a fist in the direction of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and screaming “Whyyyyy?!”
(Yes, the Globes finally gaveth to Tatiana Maslany last year, and now they’ve takethed away. Sigh.)
We’ve collected 40 of the biggest snubs in the gallery below — so »
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is in every way a less legitimate organization than the Screen Actors Guild, yet the Golden Globe TV nominations list is always so much more interesting than whatever SAG puts out the day before. The HFPA shares the SAG voters love of famous movie actors deigning to do television, but they couple that with a love of all things new and shiny that can sometimes be ridiculous and other times be awesome. So where yesterday's SAG nominations were predictable and dull in the extreme, this morning's list of Golden Globe TV nominees has plenty of unexpected stuff on it — some terrific, some just odd. So, yes, there are tons of famous names on there, particularly since the HFPA decided to treat "True Detective" as a miniseries, which therefore created some breathing room for "The Knick" star Clive Owen to join the drama actors list, along with usual suspects Kevin Space, »

Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Peter Krause, and Paula Patton all got up early, like most of us movie buffs, for the big reveal! The 2015 Golden Globe Nominations! The usual suspects triumphed at the nominations such as "Boyhood," "Foxcatcher," "Selma," "The Imitation Game," and "The Theory of Everything." Missing was one of my favorite films of the year, "Whiplash" but it got one nod for J.K. Simmons' performance.
Also missing in the big categories is Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" which only received one nomination, Best Original Score. Watch the film to get kudos from the Academy in the technical categories.
We'll find out the winners of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 11, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as our hosts of the evening and it will be broadcast live on NBC.
Here's the complete list of nominees of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards: »
